Works about as well as gun control Paying tribute to thugs to prevent crime nets us this gem
(GunNews) Ceasefire Illinois got a million dollars from the City of Chicago earlier this summer to hire ex-convicts to mediate disputes between violent criminals and to prevent crime.
Its true. This isnt April Fools and sadly, its not a joke:
Chicago (Sun-Times) Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Friday hes proceeding with caution in forging a city partnership with CeaseFire Illinois and not writing a blank check to make certain ex-offenders hired by the group are preventing crime, not committing it.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported this week that at least six people have been charged with committing drug-related crimes while on CeaseFires payroll over the past five years.
Desperate to reverse a 50 percent increase in Chicago homicides fueled by gang violence, Emanuel said he still plans to use the anti-violence group The mayor said he remains convinced that CeaseFire and the interveners it uses to mediate gang conflicts can be a partner in fighting gang violence.
[How CeaseFire claims to work:] [M]ore than 300 ex-offenders hired by CeaseFire over the past decade to mediate conflicts to prevent shootings. About 100 CeaseFire workers in Chicago currently intervene in violent disputes.
So, what has Chicago got so far this year besides further arrests (here and here) of street pharmacists claiming to be CeaseFire Mediators?
Its better than that
Heres what they are doing with them.
Just imagine all the violence if they weren’t there! /Typical liberal idiot response. The left never ceases to amaze me!
That’s a gang sign. Gangster Disciples, if I remember right.
Another example of ‘feeding the alligator in the hopes that it will eat YOU last’.
So the city of Chicago gives a million dollars to criminals. What’s new about that?
Somehow, I suspect that rigorous accounting standards are not a part of this grant.
This is true, but it also spotlights the obvious solution, to a liberal.
We need to pay even more tribute to the gangs, because the amount we’ve been giving is obviously not enough to promote the change we want.
Thanks for the info ... looks like a nice place. ;-)
