Shocking Poll: Americans Generally Don’t Support Paying Criminals To Behave

A new poll conducted by Rasmussen determined American adults don’t support paying off criminals to be peaceful citizens, instead of murderers.

Several U.S. cities, seemingly out of options to reduce crime rates, have been pondering bribing criminals with cash every month to play nice. Officials from cities like Miami, Toledo and Baltimore are all looking closely at the program. This interest extends to over a dozen other cities.

Eighty-one percent of Americans think the policy proposal, which could entail paying criminals about $1,000 a month not to murder, is absurd. That figure doesn’t imply that the rest of the respondents surveyed by Rasmussen support the idea. Rather, only 5 percent support the plan, and the other 13 percent remain undecided.

The city council in early March unanimously approved the program forwarded by Council Member Kenyan McDuffie, which is likely to cost around half a million in taxpayer funds ever year.

3. I'm in favor of paying people

To lock them up. I'm also in favor of helping out the local prison with thier electric bill in order to keep ole sparky working. I'd also be in favor of installing a rheo stat on the chair to crank up the voltage slowly, and get the guy from the verizon commercials (can you here me now, gooood), to ask them if they could feel the voltage. Can you feel that tingle? Gooood. Are you starting to twitch? Gooood. Are you wishing it would stop? Gooood. Do you understand now that was what your victim was thinking as well? Gooood.

4. Just when you think that there couldn't possibly be another layer of imbecility that the LW

in this moribund nation could sink to, you're confronted with a gem like this. There truly is no bottom to the sea of malodorous pus that passes for their principles.

5. Republicans pay criminals to misbehave.

Or, rather, Republicans reward destructive behavior with monetary incentives and subsidies. For example, Republicans stand in the way of punishing polluters, letting polluters pocket the savings by letting them toss their garbage (for free) in the water and air of the American taxpayer.

6. This going to have to go to court.

Someone with a lot of money for a good lawyer should go to a police station and demand an extra $1,000 a month or they will commit a crime, then sue if they are turned down or arrested.

7. Right, don't pay street criminals unless the street is Wall Street.

Then it's a virtue.

To paraphrase the great George Carlin.
