Looks like in Minnesota you need 10% + enough collateral to back up the entire bail amount.

"It was not immediately clear where Chauvin got the money to pay his bond. In Minnesota, someone who posts bond must pay 10 per cent, in this case $100,000, to the bond company and have collateral, such as a house, to back the full amount."
Police union passed the hat?

They probably have insurance coverage on it, too.

Possibly. The union said they didn't provide any funds, but doesn't mean members didn't raise it on their own.

But that's no reason to spoil the opportunity for a joke

I've seen it in one or two American movies

Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who killed two protesters and was charged with murder following protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, used his coronavirus stimulus money to buy the AR-15 he used in the shootings. Since Mr Rittenhouse was too young to purchase a gun under Wisconsin's state law, the teen - who worshipped law enforcement figures on his social media pages - decided to skirt the law and purchase one from his friend.

The officer who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha will not face charges.

"It is my decision now that no Kenosha law enforcement officer will be charged with any criminal offense based on the facts and laws," Graveley said Tuesday.
