As all Americans know – or bloody well should know by this point – Liberals and Progressives, the bulk of those supporting Democrat politicians with money and votes, hate history except when that history or the careful revision of it can pain Americans, especially Whites, in a bad light. Hence, it’s not too shocking that our domestic enemies have openly rejected the historical adage, “Crime doesn’t pay.”
Indeed, our domestic enemies have, instead, embraced the exact opposite of this truism. Now, if the verminous perp is of the correctly protected persuasion, crime does in fact pay. It does, at least in Richmond, CA where the Democrats have decided to pay thugs not to kill people.
It’d Sho Be A Shame If Sometin’ Happened Up In This Fly Town
Yes, you read that right; Richmond, CA is paying violent felons to refrain from committing further violent crimes … And other Democrat ruled municipalities are looking to do the same.
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.
I really don’t know whether it’s better to describe this as a setup for a Black run protection racket where the cities must pay thugs not to cause harm or as a case where a young thug’s first arrest and incarceration is an unpaid internship leading to a payed position.
They even have felons like the aforementioned Holmes “mentoring” other violent, ghetto thugs and operating in a “don’t snitch” manner while utilizing taxpayer-funded vehicles and drivers.
The mentors have coaxed inebriated teenagers threatening violence into city cars, not for a ride to jail but home to sleep it off — sometimes with loaded firearms still in their waistbands. The mentors have funded trips to South Africa, London and Mexico City for rival gang members in the hope that shared experiences and time away from the city streets would ease tensions and forge new connections.
And when the elaborate efforts at engagement fail, the mentors still pay those who pledge to improve, even when, like Holmes, they are caught with a gun, or worse — suspected of murder.
The city-paid mentors operate at a distance from police. To maintain the trust of the young men they’re guiding, mentors do not inform police of what they know about crimes committed. At least twice, that may have allowed suspected killers in the stipend program to evade responsibility for homicides.
Of course, this is such a perfect and perfectly Liberal plan that Democrats in Washington DC, Miami, Toledo, Baltimore and more than a dozen cities with significant ghetto and/or barrio populations are eager to replicate Richmond’s plan.
So it looks like crime does pay…if you’re in the right place and are the right sort of criminal.
