BONDING

MEMO: TO DADE COUNTY STATE ATTORNEYS OFFICE

ATTN: JOE CENTORINO, CHIEF PUBLIC CORRUPTION UNIT

FROM: YOUR PAL RUMPOLE

RE: CORRUPTION RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE.


When you prosecutors emerge from your office every morning, full of pep and vigor and Starbucks and ready to go do justice, take a quick glance to your right. As you emerge from your confines on 12th Avenue, lugging your boxes and coloured files, just take a peek to your right.

See where the fence with the barbed wire ends? And then a little more to the right is the PD'S office. In between the two is a part of the jail called the East Wing where people go to pick up their loved ones who are bonding out of jail.

Now, when you are coming back from that late lunch, especially after 2:30 PM., look over to the East wing. See that group of nefarious ner-do-wells loitering on the street? That' s a pack of bondsmen and women lying in wait to pounce on the unsuspecting civilians who wander over there from the felony bond hearings on the 5th floor of the REGJB trying to get their family member out of jail. The bondsmen lie, cheat, threaten, and trick unsuspecting individuals into hiring their company to write the bond.

Think that's bad? Try this.


The bondsmen send their runners to the bond hearing on the fifth floor. When a family member appears in court and the Judge lowers the bond, the runners call over to the bondsman waiting by the East wing (as the felony bond hearings begin at 2:45 PM), and then, before they are hired, they put in the paperwork to bond the defendant out. When the unsuspecting family member goes to the East Wing the bondsman approaches them, and here is where the sell can turn easy or hard: they are either told that the bond company was already called by the person in jail and they have posted the bond and need to be paid, or they are threatened, taken to a bondsman's office, and in some cases, held against their will, until the bond is paid.

There are documented cases of the bondsman bonding people out of jail, handcuffing them, taking them to their office, and holding them in custody until someone appears with cash.

Here' s a little experiment. Wander over to the East Wing one day and sort of just mill around and look lost. Before you can say "scum" a person will come over and offer to help. Ask them where to go to get someone out of jail. You will be swarmed. You will be told you must use a bondsman and cannot post a cash bond. They will ask the name, and when you tell them, they will pretend to check a list and tell you they have already been called and posted the bond and you must pay them.


Even bondsmen are upset at this. The honest bondsmen who do an honest job will tell you that whenever they go to post a bond, they have to fight off other bondsmen who have already put in the paper work trying to score a fee. Bondsmen at the jail have office staff that use the public access computers to get names and phone numbers and call people at home at all hours of the day or night soliciting bonds, usually telling the person that they have already put in the bond paperwork and need to get paid. If that person has already contacted a legitimate bondsmen, they will be told they must use their company, or that they work for the bondsman already called. In sum, they lie, cheat, and steal their way into getting business.

The variations of this scam are endless.

It's a disgraceful affair.
It demeans the justice system and rewards the thieves and hustlers at the expense of legitimate bondsmen who run a clean operation.

And this is just an educated guess, but we will take a wild stab here and postulate that the same bondsmen who steal and hustle cases also tell the defendants that they must hire a particular attorney or they will surrender the bond and put the defendant back in jail.

And that's a crime.


Just in case Mr. Centorino and his crew are looking for a little corruption.
It's less than 100 yards away from the entrance to their office.
Right under their noses.


We know this is Miami. And we realize that Mr. Centorino and his crew have their hands full with city commissioners, politicians, not to mention police officers and the odd attorney now and then. But the fact that these scams take place not less than a football field from the State Attorneys Office somehow makes the whole mess all the more odious.

I like the post but for the guy behind bars I dont think he really cares how he gets out, even if it means handcuffed at a office.

Rumpole said...

Of course the person in jail just wants to get out. Let me give you a scenario: You are hired after a person is arrested. You schedule a bond hearing and call a reputable bondsman. The court lowers the bond and sets a Nebbia. You spend two days working with the bondsman on deeds, bank accounts and the bondsman prepares a Nebbia report. Then you have a hearing, the bondsman tetsifies, and the Judge finds the Nebbia satisified. Then the bondsman goes to post the bond only to find another company has already submitted the paperwork. There is a fight at the jail. You get called. The client is still not out. This happens all the time and actually delays the release of your client. Meanwhile, the bond company you succesfully fought off starts calling your client's family (who is upset that the client is still not out) and recommends another attorney who will do it cheaper.
It goes on and on and on and its very demeaning and nasty. We as a defense attorneys have enough problems with almost every case having minimum mandatories and such, without having to keep constant tabs on our client and the bondsman,

Rumpole says: In the last few months I had more than a few bondsman from different companies call my office to complain that after I did the bond hearing and they walked the client's family over to the East Wing, another bonding company had already submitted the paperwork, and would I call the jail to speak with a shift commander? I have enough to do without getting involved in this because those thieves are trying to steal cases.

Rumpole said...

Oh, I would love to do a discussion of the Kennedy assassination. Manlichter-Carcano Rifle and the time it takes to cycle through a shot; Warren Commission Exhibit #399 (the Magic Bullet) Arlen Specter and the single bullet theory, the killing of Policman JD Tippett, and of course toy maker Abraham Zapruder's film.

Yes, I have been exposed as a Kenndy Conspiracy theorist. Although I have my own theory.

Anonymous said...

Conspiracy? When I was in the Army, I learned (after 1963) that even I could easily fire the three shots in question using a scope. Too many silly theories are out there. Every shot from the grassy knoll went where ...after passing through the skull? How come no one on the opposite side of Dealey Plaza got hit by fragments?

No more Maui Wowee for you Rumpole.

Anonymous said...

The bondsman problem is well known, and will never be resolved. The SAO will do nothing about it, the bondsmen and sleezy lawyers are fully aware of that.

Rumpole said...

Based on the Zapruder film, which gives us the exact amount of time the shots were fired in (with the film running at 1 frame per second) the amount of time needed to fire the number of shots necessary to cause the wounds was IMPOSSIBLE for the cheap italian rifle used. It was only after this impossibility was brought to the comission's attention that Arlen Spector was forced to rework the comission's findings and come up with one bullet causing five wounds on two people. (The single bullet or magic bullet theory)
If Oswald was on trial today, we could prove he was part of a consipracy (or a patsy) to the satisfaction of a jury. Other people were in that Plaza firing shots that hit the President.

Rump,
Before we get into it about frame 313 in the Zapruder film, just have ANYONE tell us where the fragments, projectiles from a high-powered rifle, pieces of bone, brain matter, and volumes of blood went. After all, applying the laws of physices, any bullet would have caused the items to follow the path. Unfortunately for your theory, NO physical evidence of ANY kind was ever found to either side of the limo. No blood, no spatter, no bone/missle fragments. Or did G-d decide to suspend the laws of nature so boobs like you can guess about the impossible.

There was one gunman. Were there other conspirators? I do not know. But I sure know that firing two shots from a rifle with a scope in eight seconds, one of which missed everything, and one of which was fatal is a task that any child could master - let alone a Marine marksman. I say TWO, because the time clock starts after the first shot through the throat. He had 20 seconds to line up that shot.

I am sure that you are younger than I am, and what you read about or remember as a child does not replace those memories of we who followed every moment for days - read all the naysayers + the two commission reports, and believe in the truth of Occam's Razor (but not horoscopes or Santeria).

Dear Arlen Spector fan: ONE PERFECT BULLET caused all those injuries? Why is their an admittedly doctored photo of Oswald holding the weapon?
Why were fake Oswald's turning up at the strangest places? Why did Oswald "defect" to Russia, only to return?

There is little doubt that Oswald could not have cycled the Manlichter Carcano rilfe in the time needed to hit both Kennedy and Connnoly.

As to your incorrect statements about evidence:
In the immediate aftermath of the assassination, the FBI analyzed five bullet fragments recovered from the limousine, the governor's wrist, the president's brain and from a hospital stretcher.

The bullet found on the stretcher is missing some lead, but not enough to account for all the other fragments. So there had to be more than one bullet.

Don't get me started.

I cannot debate you in Public. My agent and publicist will not allow it.

Honest and reputable bondsmen are usually the ones who will contribute to a campaign. They have interests like being able to have forfeitures discharged when the person is re-arrested or surrendered timely. My opinion is that the scum who try and steal cases don't even have a checking account to use to write a cheque.

BHB set Gabe Martin up again to avoid having him run for PD again as he is trying to get Carlos Martinez to replace him. Though, Gabe is strong and will bounce back and run for office in 2008 with the help of Ralph Arza, Frank Bolans and Karen Aronowitz from the UTD. It is going to be interesting. Oh, KFR will jump on the wagon to save her tequila salary.

Arza didn't get arrested for using the N word,bro. he got arrested for threatening a witness against him, which is a crime. To make matters worse, he got his dumb ass relative to get involved in the whole stupid crap, and then the coward identified his cousin's voice on the voicemail. If using the N word was a crime, we ALL will be locked up somewhere. let's not get all gun-ho on Arza and his verbiage. Calling anyone a nigger is not a crime, all right, my NIGGER. Furthermore, Arza got a big fat mouth. that's why he got arrested. Then to blame alcohol sounds a little bit "FOLEY" to me.

I read Case Closed. I do not find that it answered all of the questions raised and there is very new work on the fragment analysis that I have not fully reviewed but I believe casts serious doubt on the tests done by the FBI in 1963. That being said I was intrigued about the book's theory that a bullet fired from long range would lose enough velocity to cause the damage without itself being damaged.

Now having read your suggestion, did you ever take up my suggestion and read the Seven Sins Of Memory? If prosecutors read that book it might go a long way to changing the very inexact science of eyewitness identification.

The problem with conspiracy theories on the assassination of Kennedy is the utter lack of an alternative scenario that makes more sense than Lee Harvey Oswald being a lone actor. Once Oswald was arrested, there was a marked reluctance to shift the blame from ultraconservatives to a self-styled Marxist; in America, a liberal President being assassinated by a Marxist seemed to make no sense. If great events demand great causes, as Manchester argues, thirst for a conspiracy will never be satisfied so long as Oswald stands as he does now. What has never been in doubt is that on the morning of November 22nd Oswald took his rifle, retrieved just the night before, to the Depository wrapped in brown paper. There is also no doubt that he told a co-worker that the package contained curtain rods. Shortly after noon he took up his post on the sixth floor and as the motorcade passed he fired three shots. A tree branch deflected the first bullet but the rifle crack prompted Governor John Connally to twist his torso to look over his right shoulder. The second hit Kennedy at the base of his neck and then plowed into and through Connally's right side. As Connally keeled over and shouted, "My God, they are going to kill us all," the third and fatal bullet struck Kennedy, propped up by his back brace, in the head. If you don’t believe the “magic” bullet theory, what is the alternative? And if not Oswald, who?

Or, KFR will prove to once again be politically motivated. Hey, women groups! Look and listen! KFR will not go after men that abuse you as she did Arza. You are not that important.

Rumpole said...

Who killed officer Tippett and why? Why did Jack Rubie kill Oswald (not to spare Mrs. Kennedy a trial.) Anyone ever remember what happened to Ruby? What did he say in his interviews? Who was behind the fake Oswald's showing up in Mexico? You can clearly see a puff of smoke coming from the grassy knoll. There was evidence that at least two people had been in that area for a long period of time just before the shooting.

Why did the Doctor's doing the autopsy cut into the bullet wound changing it's appearance? For goodness sakes, who has the President's brain? Everyone admits it was taken. When you have a penetrating head wound, isn't the brain pretty good evidence about the path of the bullet or bulletts?

If this keeps up I'm going to have to open up my books and start reading. The first chapter of Crossfire, the Plot to Kill Kennedy by Mark Lane raises many many more questions.

She runs her office like a complete diva, is motivated by politics completely, has no loyalty to her attorneys (and they none to her - witness the attrition rate), and the only reason she stays in power is the (erroneous) perception that she is doing a decent job.

I'm sick of hearing about attorneys are getting cases because they are paying bondsmen.. I'm REALLY sick of hearing about BAD attorneys who are getting cases from bondsmen..

As I start this blog, I want to apologize for any grammatical errors I will likely have. But, I assure you there will be no misunderstanding in this blog. To begin, I consider myself a reputable bondsman with strong ethics. I try to conduct my business activities in an honest way, that my competitors will not hold any grudges against me. I don’t steal bonds; I don’t congregate with the other hustlers at the East Wing; I don’t access computers seconds after a defendant is booked to call and lie to family members about their love ones’ situation. But, I will bust my butt, by giving excellent service no mater how big the bond is. I try to make the lawyer look like “GOD” to the client, so the next time a client is in jail the lawyer will call me. I am able to walk the halls in the Justice Building and shake hands with any correctional officer, any bondsman, and any lawyer knowing that I never tried to screw anybody in an unethical manner. I believe that in today’s world “the early bird takes the worm.” I’m determined to be successful in my business endeavors by aggressive and honorable work ethics.

We all know the cheaters, the sophisticated hustlers, have zero morals and will stop at nothing to write a bond. These “SCUM BAGS” don’t care they are hurting the bail industry. I will not be surprised in the near future the Florida legislators will change the law on how an inmate is released from jail. The state Illinois and a few others do not have bondman. These states seem to survive, if we don’t stop all the corruption at the jail Florida will be another state with no BONDSMAN. A few arrests of these scum bags will a benefit us all.
