Sacramento To Pay Gang Members To Remain Peaceful

After a violent weekend of suspected gang-related shootings, 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.

Some believes it can help curve violent crime.

The program targets key gang agitators, offering them cash stipends to graduate school and remain peaceful.

The program will cost $1.5 million out of the city’s general fund.

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