Japan’s Earthquake Doesn’t Need Bail Bondsmans

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

After Japan was hit with a severe magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami, many of its people experienced a shortage of food and drinking water, but there is no panic or looting going on. In most places gas and water have been turned off along with electricity, yet there is no widespread panic or crime in the streets or shops.  This is in contrast to disasters in other parts of the world that often lead to a period of crime and looting that keep local bail bondsman busy until life returns to normal.

Granted, shops are operating somewhat differently. Customers must wait  outside the shops to purchase things to avoid people hoarding food and water, so that these basic necessities may be distributed evenly among people in need.

There are long lines, but no panic or looting. There are shops with every  window  broken, even the front doors, but nobody enters and nothing has been looted.

Contrast that with the riots and chaos in Port Au Prince after the Haitian Earthquake, or the panic in the streets of New Orleans after Katrina, where
looting and rioting kept the local bail bondsmen busy for a long while after wards.

A bail bondsman would probably starve in Japan, where the people have respect for the law instilled in them. Their collective national identity
places more importance on society as a whole than on individual freedoms.

Charlie Sheen, Call your Bail Bondsman!

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Famous (more like infamous these days) actor Charlie Sheen has a posse that includes porn stars, professional athletes, CEOs, and other Hollywood celebrities. Who he should have hanging around, or at least on speed dial on his phone is a bail bondsman.

The high-flying Charlie Sheen was arrested and released on bail on Christmas Day, 2009 when his now ex-wife Brooke Mueller called police after an incident involving domestic violence . He was booked and released on a bail of $8500 from the Pitkin County Prison in Colorado while on vacation in Aspen.

In light of his recent activities, it’s entirely possible that his bail bond could be forfeited due to the court’s stipulating that he have no drugs or alcohol in his system. Hello, Charlie Sheen? Do you think  nobody is listening to your rants about  “pounding a 7 gram rock” ? And what exactly is the alcohol content of tiger blood, anyway?

Given his proclivity for “partying out of bounds”, it might behoove Charlie Sheen to travel with a licensed California Bail bondsman in his inner circle, if for no other reason than to get back to the party quicker after his inevitable future arrests.
