This is California at its best.
The Dream Keeper Fellowship, set to launch in October, will pay 10 high-risk individuals $300 a month to end gun violence in the city.
Seems like if they know the 10 highest risk people, 90% of the work is done. If you are able to identify the 10 WORST in a population that size, I would think you would clearly want to lock THEM up.What I want to know is how they're going to go about identifying who's "high risk of shooting someone". Are they going to go to people who've actually shot someone, and be like, don't go to jail, here's some money, just don't do it again? Or are they gonna be racist, and just go to inner city communities, and be like you're a minority, and you're living below the poverty line, thus you're at high risk of shooting someone, so here's some money to not shoot anyone OK?
Yeah, I read this yesterday too Keystone. I also read that a NYC councilwoman proposed to have victims of some crimes, sit down and “work it out”, with their perpetuator. As an example, if someone was beaten and robbed of their phone, they would sit down with the perp, and each would explain how they felt and how they could resolve their conflicts. She said, then police won’t have to get involved. I loved the responses she got from other council members like “are you insane”, and “that wouldn’t work”. etc. but she insisted it would and reference that’s it’s working in California.This is California at its best.
