Almost Like A Parody of Liberal Thinking

From 2/2/16 Associated Press:
The D.C. Council is voting on a bill Tuesday that includes a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. It's based on a program in Richmond, California, that advocates say has contributed to deep reductions in crime there.

Could someone start paying me to not rob banks?

This reminds me of the short-lived series, "After MASH" where Radar tells of his first encounter with the US Agricultural Department which payed him because he didn't grow a certain crop and he was thinking of not growing several other crops!

This is just a sickness on so many levels.

I was thinking of asking them for half the suggested stipend, $4500, in return for which I promise not only to never commit a crime in D.C. but also to never, ever, set foot in the place.

Since some of the things I do now in Colorado are crimes in D.C. I think this is quite reasonable.
