Liberal Solution to Crime: Pay the Criminals

No doubt you’ve heard the idiom that ‘crime doesn’t pay. The Democrat-controlled city council of the District of Columbia is about to change that. In order to combat the rising crime rate, the council has decided that they will start paying criminals to not commit crimes. Paying criminals. With tax dollars.

Breitbart – Early this week, the city council unanimously passed a bill that would pay residents a stipend not to break the law. The council insisted the plan is a worthy expenditure of $4.9 million of the taxpayer’s dollars.The bill’s author, Democratic D.C. Councilman Kenyan McDuffie, claims the plan would curb violent crime and reverse last year’s 54 percent increase in murders.

Under the plan, each year, officials would pick 200 residents who are deemed to be at the greatest risk for committing or becoming victims of violent crime and put them in behavioral therapy and other programs. Once they complete the programs, they will be paid their stipend.

Black Lives Don’t Matter

Since the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin, blacks and other liberals have thrown out the phrase ‘black lives matter’ all over social media, signs, broadcasts, graffiti and other places. When Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson after committing a robbery and attacking a police officer, the phrase received new impetus and has become a staple in the liberal lexicon. The people using it want everyone to believe that nobody cares about black lives but them. They use it as incitement to anger and justification for protests and riots, such as in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray. It’s a call to battle. A rallying cry. It’s a unifying phrase for blacks and liberals who decry ‘white privilege’ and the death of any black person at the hands of a white police officer, whether justified or not. But there’s just one problem with it.

They don’t mean it.

The ‘black lives matter’ meme is supposed […] → Keep reading

Detroit Police Chief: People Should Carry Guns

Detroit is considered to be one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, if not the most dangerous. Decades of neglect and Democrat rule have turned the once great city into the largest municipal Chapter 9 bankruptcy in American history and a decaying wasteland with thousands of abandoned homes and buildings. Crime and violence have replaced prosperity to the point where a citizen of Detroit is statistically more likely to be killed than is an American soldier serving in Afghanistan. Although the homicide rate dropped in 2013, Detroit had the same number of murders as New York City, which has 11 times the population of Detroit. The crime problem was definitely not lost on Police Chief James Craig, who took the job just last summer. He has made several changes to the department, including putting more emphasis on crime statistics to identify trouble spots and getting rid of a ‘virtual precinct’ concept that his predecessor started, which closed […] → Keep reading

Profiting From Criminal Justice

Being a far right-wing person I have always been very pro law & order and believe that those who violate our laws should pay the consequences. More often than not I have found myself thinking that our criminal justice system is not harsh enough. But, it is the system we have and I would not trade it for any other in the world. One of the cornerstones of our system is supposed to be the impartiality of the justice that is dispensed. Without impartiality, can the punishments meted out still be considered just? Sometimes, no.

The impartiality of the justice system is supposed to begin on the street with law enforcement personnel. When their motives for enforcing the law become tainted by profit, anything that happens to the accused after that should be immediately suspect. Case in point. Here in Oklahoma, Caddo County District Attorney Jason Hicks signed a contract with Desert Snow LLC, a Guthrie Oklahoma based company, to […] → Keep reading

Chicago Gun Control Targets Restaurants

The Chicago City Council has decided to strengthen their gun control laws by targeting and financially damaging local businesses that don’t ban guns. The Chicago Tribune has the story.

The council adopted a plan to revoke liquor licenses from restaurants that do not ban firearms.

It’s the City Council’s latest attempt to toughen Chicago’s gun laws despite a federally mandated state law passed by the General Assembly allowing concealed handguns to be carried.

Gun rights advocates have promised a lawsuit. Ald. Edward Burke, 14th, said the law firm Jenner & Block has pledged to defend the city in court for free if such a suit is filed.

After the vote, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told reporters that outlawing guns from businesses that serve alcohol is common sense. Society and the nation say “you’re not supposed to drink and drive. You’re clearly not supposed to drink and shoot,” he said.

This is what they do in Chicago instead of doing something about […] → Keep reading
