Guitarist of Rage Against The Machine, Tom Morello posted a photo from his recent live show in North Carolina on Instagram.

In that Instagram post, he paid attention to North Carolina’s current money bail system with this caption:

“THANK YOU ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA for an amazing night at @The_Orange_Peel.”

Then, Tom continued:

Right now in North Carolina, thousands of people who have not been convicted of a crime are sitting in jail for one simple reason: because they do not have enough money to pay for bail.

People who cannot afford their bail are locked up while their cases go through the courts, which can take weeks, months, or even years. Those who can afford bail go free, allowing them to return to their homes, families, and jobs before their trial.

In the United States, we are all supposed to be treated as innocent until proven guilty. But that is not how cash bail works. Instead, it’s created two criminal justice systems: one for the rich and one for everybody else.

North Carolina’s current money bail system is broken. It’s time to make our voices heard and take a stand against the unjust for-profit bail industry. Go to Endcashbailnc.org to see how you can get involved.”
