San Francisco Creates WORST PLAN EVER to Combat Violence in the Streets
San Francisco, as beautiful as it may have once been in the past, is a haven of homelessness, crime, drugs, and really just everything bad.
I don’t think that you could pay me to go to San Francisco in that current condition that it’s in.
So just how bad have things gotten? Well, apparently, they’re willing to pay people $300/month to not shoot someone. Yes, I’m serious.
I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of such a ridiculous idea in my life.
Fox News reported that the program, called Dream Keeper Fellowship, “will pay 10 individuals who are at high risk of being on either end of a shooting $300 each month to not be involved in such crimes.” This means that people at high risk of being shot also qualify for the program, though it’s unclear how the determination is made. The program will launch in October.
Sheryl Davis, executive director of the Human Rights Commission, told Newsweek that the program is not “transactional,” as it may seem.
“It’s not necessarily as cut and dry as folks may think. It’s not as transactional as, ‘Here’s a few dollars so that you don’t do something bad,’ but it really is about how you help us improve public safety in the neighborhood,” she told the outlet.
So how exactly are they planning on finding the people who are most likely to shoot someone else? How are they going to hold them accountable? Do they really think that these people would just tell them, “Yeah, sorry. I shot something last week.” Of course, not!
“In many cases, sadly, the common denominator is that these folks do not have any sort of income. And so part of what we’re trying to do is make sure that money is not a barrier to turning your life around,” said Mayor London Breed.
This is NOT how you improve public safety. You don’t pay criminals not to do bad things. Besides, if they think that $300 per month is enough to solve all of a person’s financial problems, they really have no idea what’s going on in their community.
