California is poised to get rid of cash bail

The state assembly passed a bill on Monday that would eliminate money bail -- that means no more cash or bonds to get out. Low level offenders would be released. For serious crimes, judges would use a formula to decide who should be held or released pre-trial. We speak with the sponsor of the bill, who says it’s the toughest work he’s ever done; and hear from the ACLU, which is opposed to the bill.
