As the end of year approaches, we took it upon ourselves to recap some of the most memorable events and scandals that SHOCKED your eyes wide open in 2018. As bail bondsmen in Connecticut, our top news story of 2018 with no doubt would be “the banning of bail bond ads by Google”; a move that effectively steps them away from being an unbiased search engine in order to make a political statement.
Accept the distraction: It’s okay to look back
