Why is it that the only co-conspirator in the GA Trump case to be held without bail is the black man?

    Because he refused to negotiate a bond so remained in custody after being charged. If he had negotiated a bond he would likely be out. Cheers and happy weekend!

    It's not clear if he refused or whether he wasn't offered an opportunity for a pre-arranged bond. He does have a criminal history which could be a factor. Of course Trump and other more prosperous criminal defendants generally have advantages in our two-tier justice system.

    He claimed he couldn't afford an attorney to discuss a bail arrangement and the judge said he was not entitled to have a free one appointed.  Judge Richardson Richardson said one of the reasons she was denying him bond on Friday was a pending case for allegedly assaulting a federal officer earlier this year.

    I was just thinking that maybe the reason he didn't negotiate a bond was to cast a dark shadow on the trial and win black votes. It would give MAGAs a chance to claim that the trial is racist - so support the blacks for Trump organization. I was also thinking  that someone should make a song called - Don't Play The R Card In A Large Town. Cheers and happy weekend! This post was edited by Nanoose at August 25, 2023 8:25 AM MDT

    It has been conferred that the reason he was held was because he couldn't afford a lawyer so he couldn't do a pre-arranged bond. It had nothing to do with him being black but yet there is still chatter on the web that it was the reason. I think the chatter should be why Trump let him sit in jail for a week instead of offering to pay for a lawyer. Trump needs the black vote and he probably lost a few by not helping a brother out. For all we know the reason Trump didn't help Floyed was because he was black. Cheers and happy weekend!  This post was edited by Nanoose at September 2, 2023 8:18 AM MDT
