Clearly not enough taxpayer dollars are being thrown at this problem.................

BALTIMORE — A Baltimore activist believes he’s come up with a solution to solve the city’s high murder rate — paying killers not to kill, according to a reports.

“I can relate to the shooters, guess what they want? They want money,” Tyree Moorehead, the activist told FOX 45 of Baltimore.

Moorehead, who the Baltimore Sun reported spent more than a decade in prison on a second-degree murder conviction tied to a shooting at 15, suggests certain measures the city has taken to stop the bloodshed aren’t enough, FOX reported.

He has already taken other steps in an effort to curb violence in the streets of Baltimore. As of 2019, he painted nearly 200 “No Shoot Zones” throughout the city, according to WJZ-TV reporter Paul Gessler.

“I’ve talked to these people, I’ve seen the shooters, it’s a small city, I know who the hustlers are,” he continued.

Baltimore has continued to experience a high rate of killings and shootings during the coronavirus pandemic.

In 2020, the city eclipsed 300 homicides for the sixth year in a row, while recording more than 1,000 shootings.

Former Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith said he doesn’t believe paying criminals is the answer.

“It could make it easier for people to get their hands on guns because they now have an influx of a different level of cash,” Smith told FOX 45.

Moreover, it ignores personal values that motivate people to murder.

However, Smith noted that a new creative idea was needed to curb violence in the city and said that Moorehead’s idea “speaks to the desperation that we all have.”

We should all pay them, in lead.

How about we incentivize keeping fathers in households instead?

Yea believe it or not this isn't new or unique.

Plenty of states have in the past attempted direct payments to gang bangers for similar purposes

Sad country we live in

Bet if you started hanging murderers [and leaving them up] on light posts around the city in the areas where high crime rates occur they would dramatically drop in numbers.

Just spit balling here, but how about a death penalty for murder. No appeals, sentence carried out in 30 days or less.

So he wants to use tax dollars/donations to pay his homies not to murder? I need to get to know this guy. I could sure use some extra G'$ in my pocket for not murdering. I hadn't really planned on becoming a murderer anyway but I'm down for some extra pocket change. Ya dig?

And that didn't work?!  Hard to believe.  He should try more 'No Shoot Zone' signs.

So what's the going don't murder rate these days? Where do I apply to not murder?

How about they use that money in a bounty program and pay the good decent people to cap the killers? Solving multiple problems at the same time.

Are the tards there still whining about being against the death penalty?

There isn’t much difference between a surprising number of posters on this site and ANTIFA. The only real difference is the motivator for their hate. They hate the same things (both are anarchists) for different reasons.

Anarchists and libertarians are just brothas from different muthas.  

Even better when the anti “State”, anti-death penalty guys are the first to volunteer for the “give me just one minute with a baseball bat” method of enacting mob justice.

Quite true. There literally is no real difference between ANTIFA and libertarians. They just disagree on the source of their hatred but the end result is nearly identical.

The real money is in the gofundme accounts started by the "victims" family to "help pay for funeral expenses".  Because wouldn't you know it, they have no money saved!!!!!  But they ask for $10K for a proper "homegoing". I'd love to know where the money actually ends up going.

The ONLY thing I have against that one is that too many DAs are politically motivated.

Look at that poor bastard Derek Chauvin. The DA would LOVE to see him fry...and the ME reports say he had nothing to do with Floyd's death.
