Price of safety?

I am appalled at the level of bail set for James Markes after allegedly attacking a pregnant woman. I have seen the same $1,000 bail set for a person bouncing a $50 check at a gas station. This man allegedly chokes a woman, grabs her breast and slams her against a fridge and this is the bail. If a person is caught drunk driving with a child in the car the fines are increased. I feel our justice system is failing us on this one. It is almost as if we are saying that this poor woman’s safety is only valued at $1,000. I hope I am not the only one who feels this way.
