The U.S. Caribbean territory is currently the only place in the Western hemisphere where all people, including those charged with rape and murder, are always entitled to bail. If a measure is approved in an upcoming referendum scheduled for Aug. 19, 2012, judges in Puerto Rico would be allowed to refuse bail in certain murder cases including those that were pre-meditated, occurred at someone's home or during a sexual assault or kidnapping,  targeted public officials or were committed during a drive-by shooting.
