LIBERAL CITY PAYS CRIMINALS TO OBEY THE LAW
Who says crime doesn’t pay? Certainly not Richmond, CA. Sure, the city is paying scumbags to obey the law, but they have to be criminals in the first place to be eligible for this ridiculous social program. So contrary to popular belief, crime is a pretty good racket in liberal California.
The Bay Area city had tried nothing and was almost out of ideas on how to reduce crime, when some lefty genius came up with the idea to simple pay criminals to stop breaking the law. Doing the right thing and the threat of jail were not enough incentive for losers to obey the law, but money talks. Once again liberal logic finds a reasonable solution.
Fox News reports:
A San Francisco suburb is testing a controversial strategy to combat the gun violence that’s plagued the community – paying people not to commit crimes.
The experiment known as “Advance Peace” is being conducted in Richmond, Calif., and works like this: The 18-month fellowship hires convicted felons to “court” troubled youth — who so far have avoided arrest due to lack of evidence — with offers of cash and out-of-town vacations if they mend their ways.
If, after six months, a “fellow” in the voluntary program begins to achieve specific goals, they can earn up to $1,000 a month.
But wait, it gets better. Convicted felons not only get cash, but also all-expense paid vacations:
…“fellows” get to travel, too. One vacation shot shows [a fellow] posing for the camera in Los Angeles, just one of the many excursions available to those who stay out of trouble. Other destinations include New York, Washington D.C., and even London.
