A flogging would be a lot cheaper, quicker, and more effective.
RICHMOND, Calif. — The odds were good that Lonnie Holmes, 21, would be the next person to kill or be killed in this working-class suburb north of San Francisco.
Four of his cousins had died in shootings. He was a passenger in a car involved in a drive-by shooting, police said. And he was arrested for carrying a loaded gun.
But when Holmes was released from prison last year, officials in this city offered something unusual to try to keep him alive: money. They began paying Holmes as much as $1,000 a month not to commit another gun crime.
Cities across the country, beginning with the District of Columbia, are moving to copy Richmond’s controversial approach because early indications show it has helped reduce homicide rates.
But the program requires governments to reject some basic tenets of law enforcement even as it challenges notions of appropriate ways to spend tax dollars.
In Richmond, the city has hired ex-convicts to mentor dozens of its most violent offenders and allows them to take unconventional steps if it means preventing the next homicide.
For decades the U.S. has been bribing thugs to give up their wasted, pathetic lives of crime. Welfare, community organizations, affirmative action–all of these are bribes that have cost productive white people at least half of their wealth, taken by government as taxes and taken by inflation.
Some thirty years ago I was paid a small sum of money the the City of San Antonio to look at so-called “community” nonprofit organizations. Basically, cities provide hundreds of thousands of dollars (or more) to nonwhite hustlers who claim to be working to benefit nonwhites, such as by providing midnight basketball to youths of color.
The hustlers and cons who get the grant money pay themselves fat salaries while these programs do nothing much. However, they are touted in the liberal press as reducing crime, keeping kids in “skoo,” helping adults find jobs, and so forth.
It’s a con game. It might be cheaper to do what this story is about: Just give the damn thugs money. Forget rehabilitation programs, couseling, etc. Just give them the moolah.
Productive whites have been bled dry by this sh*t for 50 years of liberal rule in America.
Wake up, white man. Don’t fall for the power elites (primarily Jews and their lackeys) poopaganda. None of their fancy programs does anything more than impoverish you. You’re a slave and you don’t even know it.
The time for revolution is now!
