Sacramento to Pay Gang Members $1.5 Million

in Latest News

Gang shootings are a big problem in some major cities, including in Sacramento, California.

But Sacramento’s answer to solving them is setting some people’s heads spinning.

From Fox News:

Following a fatal shooting last weekend in a city park, the Sacramento city council unanimously approved a controversial program called Advance Peace in an effort to address a recent spike in violence.

The program offers gang members cash stipends for graduating from school and generally staying out of trouble.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg moved the vote up saying, “Let’s get going on doing everything we can to save innocent lives,”

The city plans to pay gang members $1.5 million to stop shooting at each other.

The city voted 9-0 in favor of the program although what all the details are not clear as the contract hasn’t been finalized. The money is coming out of the general fund.

    It is truly unbelievable what the Leftist fools in charge of these cities want to do. And, anymore, there is not much opposition from the citizenry, they have been so dumbed down.

    • tomatoman1

      There is lots of opposition. We are just outnumbered since the immigration and welfare welcome mat went out.

      • Larry

        Just not enough to have an influence?

        • tomatoman1

          Exactly.

          • Larry

            It’s almost too much to believe that, less than 30 years ago, RR took the state by storm & now it appears to be more third world banana repubic like each & every day.

          • tomatoman1

            Yep.

          • Larry

            You can always vote with your feet.

  • generalJed

    Pres. Lyndon Johnson did just that with his “Great Society” programs. He turned small, ineffective street gangs in L.A., Chicago, and other big cities into massive street gangs with more advanced weapons. The Democrats seem to have a love affair with criminals and chaos. It keeps them in power, as in Chicago.

    • The Redman

      Stupid white-folks, huh. gene. hahahhahahahahh

  • Scott

    Who cares, as long as the city and state are footing the bill. Remember, it is
    California, so no one should be surprised. Personally, I would love to see everyone
    under the age of 18 apply for the money. Bankrupt the city, then maybe they will come
    to their “Senses”.

    • tomatoman1

      i care. I care about all the ruinous policies that have made my home of almost seven decades a sh!thole.

      • Sanjosemike

        We left California in March. The hell with it.

        Sanjosemike (No longer there)

        • tomatoman1

          I am too old to start over. Everyone and everything I care about are here. I’m happy for you.

          • Sanjosemike

            Don’t be so sure. We are old too. We moved into a beautiful over 55 community in the LV area. It’s really nice here. Over 33% of Californians want to get OUT. Thanks for writing.

            We couldn’t be happier.

            Sanjosemike (no longer there)

          • tomatoman1

            We have extended family here who are pretty much our life. They are all entrenched here for the foreseeable future. So far, I can absorb the cost of living here. My home is paid for. I have a great-granddaughter I want to watch grow up. I never say never. Best of luck to you friend.

          • Sanjosemike

            I can’t give my email publicly, or I would invite you to visit us. Be prepared to be “intoxicated” with a 180 degree view of the mountains, the strip and the airport from our living room. No state income taxes and wonderful, conservative friends.

            You could still drive to Ca to visit your family. We do.

            Sanjosemike (no longer there)

          • tomatoman1

            Thanks Mike. Tempting.

          • The Redman

            U’ll ruin it. hahahahahhhahhaha

        • rick meek

          GOOD MOVE and may you have the best…..

      • Scott

        If you have been living there for almost 70 years then you should not be surprised at what is going on.You also should realize that California’s politicians do not care what their “sane” citizenry thinks ; they are too busy catering to their “insane” citizenry. May I suggest moving to a different state, preferably one that is in the South or Midwest.

        • tomatoman1

          I am not surprised..just disgusted. My love of family..all of them here…will keep me in place unless I am absolutely forced out. I can still see the snow on the mountains from my home. I can still go to the ocean in a couple of hours. There are many people like me here. I choose to spend my precious time with them. I “follow” your comments, and I agree with your opinions, but sometimes circumstances are complicated. Thanks Scott.

    • anthony

  • Gary D Flatt

    9 to 0 ? Zero, pointing out their collective intelligence..

  • 4USA2

    Well why not; it’s only tax payer’s money. And gee, Janet Nepolitano sticky fingered $1.8 Million from tax payers and student’s tuitions because she is the head of the U.C. college system in CA and (she could help herself to money) because she wanted some funds in secret for her intended lavish vacations. And she’s still employed there this year …. hasn’t been charged or arrested or nothing! A “million here” and a “million there” and hey, of late we’re hearing now that Jerry Brown intends to put a NEW tax on water. Money just falls out of trees, huh?

  • Marina Dilbone

    Geez

  • Gene A Daniel

    about the dumbest thing I have ever heard of stupid stupid stupid

    • The Redman

      Remind ya of how white-folks do things, huh. gary. hahahahhahahahaha

  • Taghi Akbari

    God is pissed badly, look at hurricane Harvey and Irma, he is pissed because he gave people some brain, still they choose a sociopath and pathetic liar to be President of this great nation or Darrell Steinberg to be Mayor of a city who is giving gangs millions not to shoot in city street instead of putting them in jail, well America wait for darker days.

    • The Redman

      Hahahahahahahhahaha. good one

  • Timothy Toroian

    WAPOS!! Why don’t they outlaw guns in the city( I know that is unconstitutional) so the gans can get really rich running guns, just like in Prohibition, which made Organized Crime WEALTHY?

  • rick meek

    GREAT – give’em the money to buy guns and especially AMMO……Smooth move ya CA Crazies…..

  • Dianne Buckhout

    Isn’t it ironic that liberal Californians vote for all these laws and bills that don’t work. So then they don’t like paying the bills so they move to Arizona, Oregon, Colorado and infect those states with socialistic values that don’t work in the real world.

    Similar to the illegal immigrants who come here to escape the socialistic/cartel dictatorships that they allowed to flourish in their countries and vote for free-stuff here by supporting the liberal politicians (pseudo-dictator) promising them utopia. Where do you go after America is lost to the blatant corruption that is growing as fast as the national debt?

    • tomatoman1

      As a long time Californian, may I remind you that for many years people from all over the country and the world came to our state to get jobs and start a new life. That’s just how it works. I only have one vote.

      • Wolfy

        Unlike illegal aliens who have one vote for each polling place they can reach in one day using Democrat transportation. The reason for only one vote? You have morals.

  • Marty Koval

    The Sacramento city council must be insane to think that paying local gangs to not murder people is a viable solution. These politicians do not have a clue why people kill other people. The root cause is that these gang member have harden evil hearts because they have totally abandon the Ten Commandments. God established the Ten Commandments, which are the transcript of His own character and the foundation of His perfect government. He gave them to our sinful world to help guide us to doing right.

    What we are seeing in these gang members is the great spiritual decline and immorality that has taken over our society. This is the work of Satan, the Great Deceiver who has deceived the vast majority of people to shun God and worship the evil ways of Satan.

    The further we distance ourselves from God and His principles of life, the quicker our great nation will find itself in national ruin.

  • Peggy Cantley

    this mayor is dumber than a stick, paying them just gives them more power over you like blackmail: you want to stop them go in with guns a blazing & they will scatter like scared rabbits, shoot the leader & they won’t know what to do, they are all programmed to listen to the leader.

  • Paul Omlor

    No wonder Calif., has financial issues, this guy needs to be taken out of office. Let the gangs kill themselves, it’s called Pest Control. The governor needs to put a bounty on all gang members, pay bounty hunters to clean up the trash.

  • anthony

    Why not give them 40 acres and a mule, free citizenship, free medical , free dental, free vision insurance , a 357 magnum, food stamps, EBT, and a case of Colt 45. What mentally unarmed liberal democrat morons….

  • D.J.C

    Welli am going to move there so i can get some of that money give me the money what a bunch of idiots that are

  • James Stevens

    Just start shooting these little Banty Roosters in the street as soon as you spot them. Open the hunting season to the rednecks and the gangs will disappear. Give the Rednecks a medal and $1000.00 cash for every one they drag in dead or alive. Much cheaper than the California Bribe Deal.. I wonder if the Governor is going to share his part of the payoff cut with anyone in his office. jwstx

    • jseeburger

      Rednecks in California? You’ve got to be kidding!

  • jseeburger

    If the tax payers are going to pay those nice innocent gang members money for guns, will that not just encourage them to go out and steal more guns?

  • The Redman

    white-folks ruined america. hahahahhahahaahhaahah

  • Veteranasm

    Stupid is as stupid does, what do you expect from California ??

  • James Stevens

    Redman gets a check every month from Moveon.org. George Soros is his sugar daddy.

    So now you are going to educate gang members….to be like you…corrupt on another level. Make them lawyers so they can make/change laws, defend their brothers, and eventually run the nation from Senate seats. Only in California. Maybe it would be cheaper to just make them all women on passive hormones. hmmm. but then, California wants to separate from America and this might be a good time for them to do that. apparently they have a huge general fund and the rest of us would no longer be responsible for their stupidity.
