Paying people not to commit murder...........

Interesting concept.

https://www.redstate.com/streiff/2017/09/04/go-wrong-sacramento-pay-gang-members-not-commit-murder/

I guess it puts a new slant on the term "Cost of living'. Wonder if it will be inflation adjusted?

    I live in Lincoln, 20 miles from Sacramento....Deputies shot in four different communities around me in the last 15 months. Four died. The Democrats in this State are idiots. Steinberg left the legislature because of term limits and became mayor of Sacramento bringing his moronic governing policies (let felons out of prison early because they didn't have rehabilitation opportunities) to the city. Can't wait for the day that the gangs in Kommifornia figure out that they vastly outnumber the police and ransack the cities. Blue tips awaits their caravan down my street!

    Just when you don't think it can get any crazier in that blasted state!
    The thugs selected to receive the extortion payments are known to police and neighbors but, thus far, no one has had the ambition to make a criminal case against them...
    I've been saying for YEARS that "the authorities" know exactly who this human garbage is: Time to declare open season!

    I don't have an issue with "targeting" 50 young thugs. The only discussion they might need to have would be ".223 or .308?"

    Seems like just shooting the ones that can't be rehabilitated would be cheaper.

    Which begs the question, "Where are they going to GET the money?". They've been giving handouts to illegals for decades, now they're going to give more to criminals. The state is broke, they raised gas taxes - again - as the Liberals love to say, "Its unsustainable".

    If people can't see there's something wrong with this picture They're truly lost. But it's right up there with same sex marriage and every other goofy libtard idea we've seen the last 10 years. Just let everybody do anything they want. As long as they vote Dummycrap!

    Everybody should be able to do anything they want, as long as it doesn't cause harm to someone else.

    Same sex marriage (consenting adults) harms no one.

    Releasing gangsters and paying them not to murder? That is some alternative universe stuff right there...
    The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

    They should have to wear a reflective sticker after they pick up their checks, kind of like when you have been a good patient.

    Hmmm. . .I see several problems here. Not the least of which. . .Anybody remember this line from The Last Samurai?

    Perhaps the idiot mayor would be sleeping with the fishes.
