Shocking Poll: Americans Generally Don’t Support Paying Criminals To Behave [View all]

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.
