Default Paying criminals to behave??

The "city" near me has an increasing problem with drug and gang related violence - "gun violence" according to the media. It's a small city (~100,000 residents) and there were at least 6 shootings over the weekend. Usually the victim (although I'm not sure that word fits in this case) and perpetrators are juveniles. This has FINALLY gotten the attention of the powers that be. Of course, no one ever sees anything, and the victims never cooperate with law enforcement.

Now, the mayor has gotten involved, and is looking at a program that would figure out who the people are that are most prone to violent acts and pay them $1000 for each month that they behave themselves. Really?? This is the solution? We have to pay people to act like humans? Disgusting!

I'd see they got paid with a hunk of hot smoldering lead up their asses.

Gents- stay on track- politics goes in politics.

Ever hear the term Danegeld? The Danegeld (/ˈdeɪn.ɡɛld/; "Danish tax", literally "Dane tribute") was a tax raised to pay tribute to the Viking raiders to save a land from being ravaged. It was called the geld or gafol in eleventh-century sources; the term Danegeld did not appear until the early twelfth century.

It was said- "The problem with paying Danegeld- you never got rid of the Dane."

Sounds like you need a new Mayor. And possibly some better parents to keep the troubled teenagers in line. Who are these families? My Dad would have beaten me bloody if I did anything remotely similar to what is going on in some places. All the police would have needed to do is scrape up my remains and bag them.

Where the bleep are the Moms and Dads?

Exercise a little eugenics on em' as well. Got to eliminate the bad dogs from the pack and their heirs too just to be on the safe side.
