A quick follow up to last week’s story in West Virginia about the two non violent activists held with excessive bond of $100,000.

Climate Ground Zero’s legal team got a bail reduction hearing with Overseer Porter Snodgrass. Snodgrass reduced the bail to $50,000 (with an option of putting up $25,000 in property.) Obviously he still hasn’t read the 8th Amendment, but then they got the bail reduction hearing got moved to more reasonable people in the circuit court. In the circuit court, bail was reduced to $2500.

It’s nice to see that all of the West Virginia judicial system has not been corrupted by the tentacles of Massey’s coal empire.
