4:35 am
zero bail law. >> believe me, every judge who considers bail, makes a decision about bail in a case has that going on in the back of their heads. if i do this, is this going to haunt me? however, you can't as a judge make decisions just based on that. you can't do it out of fear. if police officers will put all this out, they need to put all the information out and that's not what they're doing. they're putting out that they're not unhappy. that's not my per view. >> reporter: it's a new law with circumstances police say they don't agree with. >> the judges are probably following to the best of their belief what they think the law compels them to do. if that's what the law compels them to do, the law needs to be changed. there is a problem with the law. >> reporter: put on the sorf when he allegedly fled. that's what castile was also arrested and another is on
