Low bond for Alvarez

Former Miami-Dade mayor and police director Carlos Alvarez was arrested and charged with domestic violence.

His bond was set for $1,500. Two years ago, I was arrested on a similar charge, and my bond was $6,500.

Why the disparity? Furthermore, the police was told by the daughter of Alvarez’s girlfriend that he had been violent with her mother since 2013. I had no such prior accusation. Eventually, my charge was dismissed.
