Jay Z set to bail out dads for Father’s Day

Jay Z has announced he will be donating to charities to bail out fathers for Father’s Day, while simultaneously blasting the US bail bond industry that profits from the way the American criminal justice system works.

Writing for the Times he said; “Millions of people are separated from their families for months at a time,not because they are convicted of committing a crime, but because they are accused of committing a crime.”

He explained that taking part in the documentary series ‘Time: The Kalief Browder Story’ has made him “obsessed with the injustice of the profitable bail bond industry” and announced that this Father’s Day he’d be donating to organisations to “bail out fathers who can’t afford the due process our democracy promises.”

He also added that;“We can’t fix our broken criminal justice system until we take on the exploitative bail industry.”
