We inch closer and closer to the day when we make it illegal to arrest black people for criminal acts. Worse, we inch closer and closer to when we pay all black individuals a monetary sum to not commit crime. [To Fight Rising Murder Rate, More Cities Find, Mentor and Pay Likely Shooters: Advance Peace Fresno attempts to steer gang members who commit the most shootings away from crime, but opponents say stipends send the wrong message, Wall Street Journal, October 27, 2021]:

Some law-enforcement officials and political leaders have opposed the program.

Advance Peace Fresno’s \$1.8 million budget comes from the city, state and nonprofit groups. Garry Bredefeld, a Republican city councilman, voted against funding the program because of the money provided to participants.

“I don’t know why we would give people stipends to do the right thing,” he said. “That is complete insanity and a misuse of taxpayer funds.”

Advocates say the stipends are important to keep participants engaged in the program.

“I know a lot of people who got allowances growing up, I know a lot of people who got a little extra dough when they did well in school” said DeVone Boggan, chief executive of Advance Peace. “These guys haven’t had a childhood.”

Mr. Boggan founded the program more than a decade ago in the Bay Area city of Richmond, Calif., to address a growing murder rate. He hired former gang members and ex-cons to identify and mentor young men who had spent time behind bars for shootings, had been shot themselves or were suspected in recent shootings.

In the first five years of the program, 94% of the 68 fellows were alive, 79% hadn’t been arrested or on gun-related charges, and 60% had received monetary incentives, according to an evaluation by the National Council on Crime and Delinquency, a nonprofit research group.

Jason Corburn, a University of California, Berkeley professor who has evaluated the group’s work in Sacramento and Stockton, Calif., said that over the course of an 18-month Advance Peace fellowship, less than \$20,000 is typically spent on a cohort of 30 to 50 individuals and an average of 20 to 50 shootings are prevented.

“If you were an economist, you’d say that’s a great return on investment,” he said.

Last year there were 732 shootings and 74 murders in Fresno, compared with 374 shootings and 45 murders in 2019. In June, city officials agreed to fund a local Advance Peace program for three years.

After Advance Peace launched in Fresno, it began identifying the most likely shooters with a list from police that included people with recent firearms arrests or those suspected in recent shootings, said its local program manager, Aaron Foster.

Over half of the murders in this city of 542,000 surrounded by farms are gang-related, said Lt. Andre Benson who heads the police department’s gang unit. There are approximately 25,000 gang members or associates in Fresno, he said.

ORDER IT NOW

Mr. Foster, who used to be an active gang member and whose son and daughter were both shot to death, pored over the list with his employees, all of whom have been in gangs or grew up around them. They added some names and subtracted others; they now have 19 fellows aged 16 to 25.

Then came the hard part: getting gang members who get respect and money from their status as shooters to join the program.

Mr. Foster called 17-year-old Jaylin Johnson, whose nickname was “Lil Gunna” regularly, but couldn’t get him to commit. In late December, Jaylin was shot and killed.

With Devrick, Mr. Foster believed the best approach was to send an employee named Roger Brown, nicknamed Syrup, to recruit him. Devrick is an aspiring rapper, and Syrup is a well-known hip-hop artist in Fresno.

Devrick’s arrest for the shooting came as Syrup was trying to reel him in, a common occurrence, said Mr. Boggan. Fellows often don’t stop shooting initially because it takes time for Advance Peace workers to become an influential force in their lives, he said.

Hard to care about what’s happening around the world when local governments across the USA are actively working to de-criminalize crime and then pay individuals who should be behind bars a monthly stipend just for not behaving uncivilized and committing crime.

  1. Can’t the Black felons just take the money until the day they shoot someone? There is no back-charging. And after returning from prison the felon is a special priority to be paid so he/she/zer will not repeat.

    Will they pay off well behaved Blacks too? Or do you have to be a thug to get the money?

    In Brazil they have a special salary for the family of imprisoned felons. The US failed to copy this incitement to crime.

    Homicide and murder laws certainly have a disparate impact. Hence, racist homicide laws must be abolished.

    Hispanics probably can apply for the non-killing rewards. Biden is bringing entire gangs over!! Whites cannot apply for gangster bribe money? Maybe (white!) Muslim jihadists can get the bribe money until the day when they blow themselves up!

    These payments must never be sexist! Women get the payout?

    You cannot make this stuff up!!

  3. How long before bracket creep expands the payments to every fella? Stipend One not to kill. Stipend Two not to riot. Stipend Three not to steal. Stipend Four not to jaywalk. The sky is the limit for infinite non-behaviors.

    Then there is the inevitable sliding. Cashier to fella standing in line to get his money: ” Did you not kill anyone this week?” Fella with sorry look: “No ma’am.” Cashier: “Did you TRY not to kill anyone this week?” Fella: “Yes ma’am. But I just couldn’t help poppin a white sucka in his heyd cause I jes knowed he was thinkin racist thoughts.” Cashier: “Again, Jamal? Well, here’s your money. Last week you killed two people n this week you killed only one. We’re making progress!” Fella pulls out a gun: “It’s gettin harder n harder not to kill people. I think you betta give me mo money to help me fight my urges.”

  4. This is not a novel idea. We have been paying negroes to not work, seek employment or become independent of govt support. We have been paying negroes to reproduce without regard to marriage or truly being a family unit. We have been paying negroes to remain uneducated thru social promotion and advancement to tuition free college via social promotion. We have been paying negroes with free food, childcare, free computers, phones, internet, cable TV, health care via government handouts, housing, utilities and assorted other freebies. We have been paying negroes via charitable organizations which provide clothing and food for free. The idea of paying negroes to not kill each other is just another bauble in the jewelry of free things for negroes.

  5. It might be more efficacious to change the emphasis to killing as many as possible in an attempt to solve the gang problem as opposed to papering it over with dollars. What sense does saving gang bangers lives make?

    Better yet would be the logical thing to do, such as kill the ones that have self identified as predators once they’ve been detected via the court system. Another option might be purchasing guns for the businesses and residents in the area so they can take out the trash as they encounter it.

    A dead gang member can no longer threaten the community and solves that one small part of the problem for good.

  6. The march into bazarro world continues. Helluva message to send to today’s youth, become a scumbag with a reputation for using firearms for conflict resolution and gets paid. This is what passes for problem solving now.

    “I know a lot of people who got allowances growing up, I know a lot of people who got a little extra dough when they did well in school” said DeVone Boggan, chief executive of Advance Peace. “These guys haven’t had a childhood.”

    Interesting concept, total bullshit but still interesting. Most kids I grew up with didn’t get an allowance from their parents and damn sure didn’t receive anything from the government to behave. I wonder how much of the money getting funneled into these shit programs ends up in the pockets of the “organizers?”

  7. “These guys haven’t had a childhood.” And who is responsible for that? THE PARENTS.

  10. Minneapolis decided to do this as per news yesterday. But what I want to share is that one LOL-itician has proposed taking loitering and urinating in public off the table as actual crimes since blacks far out commit everyone else in these and other “nuisance crimes”.

    Toodles, true believers!

    https://www.fox9.com/news/data-sheds-light-on-racial-disparities-in-arrests-in-minneapolis

    Abigail Cerra says based on newly obtained data which she believes shows racial disparities in misdemeanor arrests and citations, she will propose a vote during the commission’s November 9 meeting.

    In a city that is 19 percent black, data provided to the commission by the Minneapolis Police Department shows 85.2 percent of loitering arrests and citations are among black residents.

    Sixty-one percent of people arrested or cited for public urination were black, while 22 percent were white. Public consumption and disorderly conduct had very similar figures.

    Cerra calls such nuisance crimes “gateway” crimes, that can lead to more serious offenses.

    She would like to propose a motion to decriminalize loitering and public urination, and possibly other nuisance crimes. If approved by the commission, the motion would go to the city council to consider for a vote.

  11. Rich says:

    A New York State Trooper was indicted today by the viciously black Letitia James for the death of an 11 year old girl who was in a car driven by her “father” as he fled police. In a normal society, the “father” would be indicted for fleeing the police, resulting in the death of his “daughter”. Stupid Andrew Cuomo put this ignoramus on his ticket as Attorney General as a gift to black voters, and then she stabbed him in the back, helping get him removed so she can run for governor. This crazy Negress is actually pursuing a case against a man in upstate NY for brandishing a pellet gun at trespassers who invaded his property because they disagreed with his politics. It’s getting crazier and crazier, and Whitey seems to be getting dopier and dopier, voting in these people who hate them.

  17. Regarding the program’s \$2M annual(?) cost (not all of which comes out of tax dollars), a local, GOP politician said That is complete insanity and a misuse of taxpayer funds.

    Small potatoes.

    Last year, Fresno USD was able to push through a \$325M bond (Measure M), while Central USD hit up taxpayers for \$120M (Measure D). Elsewhere in the county, a total of \$500M in school bonds were approved. Who’s counting the unsolicited, mail-in ballots?! Where was this tax-&-spend, “conservative” politician when taxpayers really needed him?

    In their retarded minds, the logic says that EVERYONE is urinating in public, loitering, etc. The po-lice are just ignoring the White people doing it. They’re mostly too stupid to see that White people, generally, don’t do these things and are therefore not cited or arrested for them. Drive through any ghetto area and then go through a White neighborhood and this is totally obvious.

    A few months ago, in my mostly White neighborhood, I happened to see a couple of motorcyclists stopped along the road, at the entrance to a subdivision. One of them was taking a piss, in plain view of not only the main road, but also of the closest house in that subdivision.

    So, see, it can happen in White areas, too! Oh, wait…the race of the perpetrator? I’ll only give you one guess, but I’m sure that’s all you need!

    I still can’t for the life of me understand why White people vote Democrat? I understand people not liking the other options or believe the system is corrupt, it is, but why the hell would you willingly vote Democrat?

    Local radio show was discussing name change of a high school to that of a black lady. The host was dismayed, but failed to connect the dots to what’s going on in the rest of the country. It’s not going to get better, our country has malignant cancer, it’s spreading at a fast pace, and demographics are destiny. If you think things are crazy when “we” are still technically a majority, wait until the SHTF when we’re a minority. We’ll be lucky if we get our own reservation, FJB and every other White traitor that brought this upon us.

    Someone who said that would not be speaking as an economist, but rather, as a leftist. Gov spending is not investment. It is waste.

    Money that the gov spends on teaching math (babysitting), even if all the kids became math experts (they can’t achieve ‘proficiency’), is just as wasteful as money it spends on Advance Peace.

    It’s a two-fold problem, I have a bunch of female friends who are conservative, independent, gun owning, realists with common sense & logic, and good jobs that support themselves, and vote towards their interests (they’re rare but they’re out there). I also know some liberal men (not friends, not gay) who grew up raised by their mothers, who are more emotional and reactionary like women than my conservative female friends, buy into the media narrative, consider themselves educated & progressive, hate guns, and couldn’t hammer a nail to save their lives. They shouldn’t be able to vote either in my opinion.

    Universal suffrage was one of the biggest mistakes in American history. Only property owners, who had a real investment in the community should ever have been allowed to vote. There was a reason the system was set up that way, property owners care about the future of their investment.

    My mother votes straight D. She has her entire life. My dad’s vote used to cancel hers out but he’s been gone for 12 years now. I once said something to her about it and she said “that’s how your grandfather voted so that’s what I do.” She still thinks the demonrats are the party of JFK. Of course she watches all the news stations and the daily shows with their bs propaganda so she is entirely clueless as to what’s really going on. I’ve given up on trying to steer her straight years ago. I hate to sound mean but her generation is a big reason the evil dems keep getting elected and re-elected and when they’re all gone maybe we can try to fix this mess. Maybe it is already too late. I don’t know the future but it’s good to be prepared for the worst. Stockpile supplies and ammo up….while you still can.

    It was the DOJ on the hook for the Dylan Roof shooting as well – they did not prevent him from legally buying a firearm.

    The justice department is apparently one of the “deep pockets” that attorneys bringing these ridiculous lawsuits on behalf of blacks and illegals collect from.

    The DOJ must have a big budget to pay for another form of “gibsmedat” or ghetto lottery payoffs

    That is total BS.

    My daughter, currently working in the USA, has been trying to immigrate for years, but as a White South African, doesn’t get a lot of sympathy. She says, if her ancestors had been imported to America as slaves, so that she could have been born American, she would thank God on her knees every night for that fact.

    I know, many of you think that’s a mixed blessing, and I agree with you; the best of America is past. But, with a background in South Africa and more lately in Canada, it still looks like sanctuary to her.

    Reparations? For what? For rescuing the losers of tribal wars from their captors, who otherwise had no use for them other than entertainment (torture) and meat? For bringing them to a safe country where they were protected from raiders and wild animals, fed, housed, clothed, and doctored… oh, yeah, and required to earn their living, unlike any of us, right?
