I don't get it. You're arrested, don't show up on your court day, you're arrested again for that and they let you out on bond. What are the chances they don't show up for that date either?

What is wrong with this picture?? "Anthony Vilona, 51, 3N448 Patricia Lane, Elmhurst, was arrested at his home at 7:10 a.m. Jan. 16 on a warrant for failure to appear in court on an original charge of speeding 40 mph over the limit. He was released on bond." Let's see, he was arrested once and released on bond with a court date. He didn't show up. He was arrested for not showing up in court and RELEASED ON BOND. HELLO.....if he didn't show up the first time, what makes anyone think he's going to show up the second????

Shall we house all speeders in jail til their court dates or should we just keep taking their $$ when they get caught missing court?
