As hard as I try, I can’t keep track of all the mischief done to my country by liberals in government. Here’s one I hadn’t heard of until today: President *Batteries Not Included’s 2014 PROMISE Act–which massaged crime statistics by rewarding local police departments and school districts for not reporting certain crimes: mostly misdemeanors, but also some lesser felonies (https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2018/02/27/promise-program-exposed-by-this-show/).
Well, that’ll make the crime rate go down–simply not arresting or charging offenders.
It also makes a joke of background checks on persons, especially young people, seeking to buy firearms. The vendor checks the background of a chronic offender and, behold–there’s nothing there.
So, if you want to get federal grants, via the unspeakably corrupt Dept. of Justice, for your local police department or school district, you just turn the other way and don’t write it down, don’t take any action, when certain crimes are committed by certain people. It’s supposed to be for “racial justice” or something.
It reminds me of a friend I had in high school. On the dashboard of his aging car, the oil light kept flashing. So he taped a piece of paper over it. Problem solved! Until, of course, the car went belly-up and died.
Could we, like, repeal the PROMISE Act? And please never, ever again allow Democrats to run the country? I mean, just because they really and truly don’t care who gets hurt, who gets killed, by them putting their crazy ideology to work…
