  • D.C. might pay criminals for good behavior

    Paying convicts to be good.........

    The District of Columbia has moved forward on a plan to reward $4.9 million over four years to released criminals who do not become repeat offenders.

    The D.C. City Council unanimously approved a bill Tuesday that includes a proposal to pay residents an annual stipend if they are not rearrested following release from jail or prison.

    City officials would pick 200 people per year who are at the greatest risk for committing or becoming victims of violent crime and assign them to behavioral therapy and other programs. Once they meet the requirement and avoid trouble, they become eligible for a payout from the city.

      Whatever happened to 'millions for defense, not one penny in tribute'?
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        All the criminals have to do to get the money is not get caught...

          Which is business as usual for them.

            I wonder if I can figure out what genius came up with this giveaway plan? Next, they'll offer money to those who want to be criminals but decide not to.


            I've got a better idea - don't do it again and you get to live.

              That went out the window with foreign aid and the Iran Giveaway of Bubba Dump.

                Better a stick than a carrot with these people if you ask me. There would be no such thing as a repeat offender. Commit a crime after getting out of jail and you prove yourself to be an unfixable cancer on society. They had plenty of chances at that point so why not just quickly put them out of society's misery on a second conviction?

                    They already are, and they gave themselves immunity from prosecution to boot!

                        No. It would be a fair assumption that they are already experienced cheaters/liars.

                            Doesn't surprise me, sounds like the **** Obama thinks up.

                            The City Council is made up of all Democrats.

                            My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
                            As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
                            No lie.

                              Except for one thing; No one hires an ex-con. Therefore his chances are severely limited.

                              Aside from that....... Don' t let them near my family.
