please won’t you be my neighbor

Lately, I’ve kind of fallen in love even more with my neighborhood even more. Maybe a lot of people wouldn’t, but this neighborhood just feels like it’s the place I should love. The character, the proximity to everything, the extremely reasonable rent – it’s pretty much perfect for me.

On Sunday, The General and I were hanging out on the stoop (so urban, right?) waiting for the return of our foster dog, Simon. Two kids were racing up and down the street on their BMX bikes yelling at each other, but clearly having a good time. When 9 year olds yell at each other, I don’t get all that concerned. Then this conversation transpired:

Boy #1: How about BFK?

Boy #2: What does that mean?

Boy #1: Brothers and friends.

Boy #2: Yeah, I like that.

Boy #1: Okay, Brothers and Friends Killings.

Boy #2: Yeah! BFK!

Appropriate? Not really, but I’m pretty sure my younger brother and I had names for our crime spree companies we wanted to develop. We were just probably a little more discreet about it. I kind of applaud their creativity! Clearly if they’re riding around thinking up names of what they’ll have embroidered on their uniforms, they’re not going to be actually killing people, right?

And last night, our drug-dealer-owing neighbor spent a good two hours trying to learn how to ollie on his skateboard right outside of our house. I should have been irritated by the incessant noise of the skateboard landing upside down in the street, but I wasn’t. I was all, you go, chubby boy, and you show Tony Hawk’s who’s boss.

People who have faced the consequences of an arrest of their loved ones must be familiar with bail bonds. A bail bond refers to the paper instrument which helps in getting the defendant out of the jail. You pay a certain percentage of the total bond amount to the bail company as fee. The State law determines the fee percentage. A bail bond is valid as the as the case is open. In case the case runs more than one year but less than 2 years, you might require paying a second fee. The signor or the person who signs for the defendant gives in written that the defendant would appear on the said date and time at the said courtroom at every specified date. Bail bond surety is one of the main documents that you need to sign and submit while applying for the bail. This document clearly states that the person signing this document would be responsible for the appearance of the defendant in court at all times required. This person will also be responsible for paying all the costs in case the defendant does not appear in the court or forfeits the bond. All costs incurred by the forfeiture of the bond will also be taken care of by this person. The surety also states that if the defendant is not handed over to court within the specified time after forfeiture, the signee or the indemnitor will be accountable for the entire bond amount including the court costs and unpaid premiums.

If you require immediate help for getting your loved one out of jail, you can browse through the internet and find out the bail companies in your State, and contact the bail agent. You would require giving some information about yourself such as the duration of your current job, your current address and how long you have been staying there, etc. The company also needs to know how you are related to the defendant. These details are necessary for processing your application and going ahead for the bail. Just as all other States LA bail bonds and riverside bail bonds also operate for different cases. Bail bonds can be used to take out defendants in cases such as drug offense, spouse abuse, all kinds of felonies and misdemeanors.

Some bail companies might require collaterals against the bond, which is treated as a security. There multiple things which can be treated as collaterals such as bank accounts, life insurance policies, cash, real estate, stocks and bonds, or even your signature. However, not all cases would require collaterals in LA. Payments of bail bonds can be made with credit cards, cash, check, money grams, quick collect, etc.

The internet is the best place to get all necessary information about the different bail bond companies in your locality and their operation procedures. Moreover, you can also find out the toll free number on which you need to call in case of emergency. You can even get lists of police stations that come under the jurisdiction in which the bail company works.


I ? Northeast Minneapolis. A lot. And I think I also love spring.
