What? You have to be a criminal to get free money? Lol. I’ll tell me they’re being discriminatory and sue them if they don’t give me free money even though I’m not a criminal. They really don’t want my inner criminal to come out!
I think that is a wise move as ANYTHING I have to say would be in polar opposition to your views of defunding police, hating on the American flag, advancing BLM and forcing vaccinations. You must be very young and indoctrinated. Hopefully, maturity and common sense will kick in as you age but maybe not...I wish you well.
Don't Judge By Surface Only; Research & Use Critical Thinking to Determine
THE TRUTH. . .
People don't die because of their skin color. Actions have consequences....Google resisting arrest and see how that impacts outcome. Be smart...use "facts" to determine what is true and not your "emotions".
That is a rational request you made in hopes that 'common sense' would perhaps kick in, Sydney. Unfortunately, we are dealing with people who think the opposite of 'right'. Our problems today involve confused children who were raised by liberals. They were rewarded for bad behavior or at least the actions were condoned and not punished. Liberals continue the poor parenting techniques into adulthood. Hence, bribes for bad behavior/money for morons....
I am not. Just because I think that criminals deserve 'punishment' and not 'payment' does not make for a "complete misrepresentation". When our children misbehaved, we took things from them, we did not pay them for being bad. Leftists just do not think things through.
It will be funded with taxpayers’ money, as well as private donations and a possible federal grant, according to KGO. The original program in Richmond, CA hit a minor snag 😲 when a 22-year-old member ( Dawaun Rice) was sentenced to 40 years to life after admitting murdering two people in separate shootings while in the program, The Mercury News reported at the time. Yolanda Ficklin-Prothro, the grieving mother of one Rice’s victims, blamed the program organizers for her 29-year old son’s death. There is no misrepresentation.
Right again! 😆 We laugh because they are so misguided but it is so sad at the same time. I know you understand what I mean here. They are doing everything in their power to turn this country upside down.
Strawman Argument. Cops wouldn't be in the situations where that occurs if criminals weren't being criminals. You can't use the outcome of the crime and criminal - as defense for why we should pay criminals to not do crime.
So you’re saying that someone entrusted to enforce the law should be removed from their position if they do it wrong? You ever hear of Joe Biden and the constitution ? How about the invasion of our southern border?
Yep and although we can experience emotions like joy, he is most definitely a perpetual outrage machine that only knows fear and hate. Who's only tactic is bullying those who view anything differently than him. Loves abortion, and laughs at torn apart victims. He'll never experience happiness. A truly soulless husk with no purpose in life but chasing hedonistic ventures and Marxist principals.
Actually when you review the data - they started their program in the early 2000s - since that occurred, murder fell and rose and fell and rose. Their average is still ridiculously higher than the nearby cities and far above the national average. Rape? Also rose and fell and rose and fell and was still way above the national average. Assault? Same thing...
The only category of crime they are decent in is Theft - which is consistently lower than the national average - because no one has much worth stealing around there.
They've consistently been in the bottom of the barrel in terms of safety to the public there - having a whopping 94% of cities nationally being ridiculously safer to live in.
THAT'S your active comparison? Yeah let's get everywhere to be a poop hole like this place....
This is another example of people choosing progressivism over pragmatism - doing what makes you feel instead of doing what works. All this will really achieve is creating the next generation of criminals. What's going to happen when this grant money runs out?
