Class Biased Justice

Why do I find it outrageous that an Afro American mother who obviously is not a scion of some wealthy family is being held on $1 million dollars bail accused of killing her one month old daughter.
A year after the fact. So why the overkill. Could it be the headline nature of the case.
Ohio mom held in microwave murder of baby

She is a classic case of teenage motherhood, she had her first child at 15, the next at 17. She lives in a housing complex and obviously is not wealthy, she is one of Americas underclass. She obviously poses no threat to her other children.
Accused mom showed baby love, friend says But the court apparently did not take that into account. She is being judged guilty not innocent, with such an onorous bail she cannot possibly raise.

Could it be because of this...
Mom in microwave baby case has record for crimes of poverty.

Heck even wealthy scions of the Kennedy family have faced less onorous bail commitments on murder charges.

And could this be a case of post partum depression in a State that has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the United States? Inquiring minds want to know.
