'I need help': Pennsylvania mayor makes desperate plea after fatal police shooting of Ricardo Munoz

The father of Kathryn Patterson, 20, an undergraduate student at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, told the Associated Press she was acting as a medic, as she has been at other recent protests. Chip Patterson called his daughter's $1 million bail“obscene.”

“Everything that I know so far, which is not a lot, indicates that Kat is not guilty of those charges. But then again, we’ll have to wait and see,” said Chip Patterson, who lives in Mercersburg, about 100 miles west of Lancaster.

He said he has not been able to reach his daughter since her arrest.

“I cannot tell you how long this night has been,” he said Tuesday afternoon. “I think regardless of what these people did or didn’t do, the bail amount is just outrageous and clearly against the Eighth Amendment,” which addresses bail.

A fight over replacing bail with "risk assessment tools" has split reform advocates. Some fear the change will worsen anti-Black discrimination.If the ballot measure known as Proposition 25 passes, California will follow dozens of counties, and several states, that have adopted “risk assessment tools” intended to bring more fairness to the pretrial justice system.
