Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #21

Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #21

What is Amendment VIII of the U.S. Constitution?

My two cents, but please share yours:

“Amendment VIII

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”


  1. I like that there are no amounts set because a billionaire can afford higher bail than a homeless person.

    • Hi Linda, Bail should be set based on flight risk, regardless of background. To charge one person more than another is not equality under the law. Cheers, Ashley
