Chapter 7 focuses on the lived impact of red zones and other bail and sentencing orders on marginalized people’s lives and rights. The spatial and temporal dimensions of these orders are particularly consequential. By isolating spatially and temporally the individuals subject to such orders, they put their safety, security, and lives at risk, impede successful reintegration, and create further social and economic barriers and constraints for individuals who are already socially and economically marginalized. Such orders also increase the risks of violent encounters with the police as well as life-threatening experiences of incarceration, connecting marginalized people with networks of oppression. Although these consequences directly infringe on some of their fundamental rights, such arguments rarely reach the courtroom.
