The new Pre-Arraignment Release Protocols are designed to rely less on the arrestee's ability to pay and more on their risk to the public or victim, Los Angeles County Superior Court stated following a July decision to institute the system. Court papers submitted to the L.A. County Superior Court on behalf of the dozen cities said the new zero-bail policy is a threat to public safety.

Congress has averted a shutdown with just hours to spare, capping a dramatic day that started with a lapse in government funding appearing all but inevitable.
The Senate voted 88-9 to pass a “clean” continuing resolution (CR) that funds the government at current levels through Nov. 17 and gives the Biden administration $16 billion it requested to assist victims of natural disasters. The House had earlier passed the measure in a bipartisan 335-91 vote.
The CR notably lacks any funding for Ukraine, spending cuts or border policy changes. The bill now heads to President Biden’s desk for his signature before midnight, with both sides claiming victory.
