HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS ONE??

300-dollars-cashTHE WASHINGTON DC CITY COUNCIL APPROVED ANTI-CRIME LEGISLATION CALLED: THE NEIGHBORHOOD ENGAGEMENT ACHIEVES RESULTS AMENDMENT ACT OF 2016.

THE BILL WOULD “ESTABLISH AN OFFICE TASKED WITH DEVELOPING A PUBLIC HEALTH STRATEGY TO ADDRESS VIOLENCE, A CRIME PREVENTION PROGRAM FOCUSED ON PEOPLE IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE AND ADDITIONAL POLICE TRAINING AND REFORMS.”

UNDER THIS PROPOSAL, “A NEW OFFICE WOULD BE CREATED TO IDENTIFY INDIVIDUALS WHO POSE A HIGH RISK OF PARTICIPATING IN OR BECOMING A VICTIM OF VIOLENT CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.”

THE PLAN SEEKS FUNDING TO COVER STIPENDS FOR ABOUT 50 THUGS…I MEAN INDIVIDUALS A YEAR WHO WOULD BE PAID AND ANNUAL STIPEND OF $9,000 (THAT’S RIGHT 9 GRAND A YEAR) TO FOLLOW A PLAN INVOLVING “LIFE PLANNING, TRAUMA INFORMED THERAPY (WHATEVER THAT IS) AND MENTORSHIP.”

THE BILL WILL GO TO THE FULL COUNCIL IN MARCH, THEN TO THE MAYOR FOR SIGNATURE AND THEN TO CONGRESS FOR FINAL APPROVAL. I’M SURE OUR “GIVE THE FARM AWAY” CONGRESS WILL QUICKLY APPROVE THE BILL…AND THERE WON”T BE A DRY EYE IN THE HOUSE.

I WONDER WHAT THE BOOKING OFFICER WILL HEAR WHEN THE FIRST DEADBEAT IS BEING BOOKED FOR (INSERT YOUR FAVORITE CRIME HERE) AND SAYS…DAMN RIGHT I DID THAT, I CAN’T LIVE ON 9 GRAND A YEAR!!!

THE LUNACY HAS TO STOP. PLEASE WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND TELL THEM TO VOTE NO!!!
