The Sacramento City Council is instituting a so-called "Advance Peace" program to pay gang members not to kill people.

The $1.5 million program will provide gang members with a $1,000 a month stipend to "remain peaceful." It will also provide them with free job training and schooling.

The city council voted in favor of the program 9-0.



From Fox 40:
SACRAMENTO -- After a violent weekend of suspected gang-related shootings, Tuesday the Sacramento City Council took action to reduce the bloodshed.

It approved a controversial program called Advance Peace, which offers cash stipends to gang members who remain peaceful.

The program is already in use in Richmond and is also being considered in Stockton. Some believes it can help curve violent crime.

..."Five people were shot in Meadowview on Sunday," Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said.
The homicide prompted Steinberg to push up a vote on the controversial Advance Peace program by two weeks."Let's get going on doing everything we can to save innocent lives," Steinberg said.
*Everything except deportations. Tons of these gang members are "DREAMers."
The program targets key gang agitators, offering them cash stipends to graduate school and remain peaceful. It already claims success in dropping crime rates in Richmond. But the city would still have to pay half the cost of the program, $1.5 million out of the city's general fund.
ABC 10 reports the program runs 18 months and also involves giving gang members "job-training and mentoring."

This is what the left calls "progress."
