Learning about Bail

Johnny Pride, 26, a self-described businessman, comedian, model and actor, was booked on suspicion of rape, lewd acts with a minor, sodomy, oral copulation of a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, said Sgt. Dan Scopp of the Special Victims' Unit at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Pride was being held on $500,000 bail....

Now, ARE YOU SURE, you princes of journalism, you clowns of Spring Street? We would hate for you to go out on a limb and take too courageous of a stand. A million dollars for a signage misdemeanor--a bit steep? You really think? When raping a minor only fetches a half-million dollar bail? Are you sure? Please--double check!
