Actually it probably will end well. Paying off informants is very effective.

Yeah. Haven't police departments been doing this for ages? Also I was unaware of crime in Nebraska and DNRTFA.

It's standard procedure for the FBI when dealing with gangs and conspiracies. Turn one of them, profit.

I have no problem with this.
If anyone knows the inner workings of the streets, the connections, the crimes.. it's the criminals.
So let's say Joe Badguy serves 5 years for a crime, he's not going to get a job anywhere because of his record/likely lack of education. He in turn signs up to be one of these "interrupters".. get's legit pay while helping to clean up the streets he dirtied.

I have to missing something here, because this sounds like a good plan.

I doubt he wants any of Clinton's ex-staffers. He's got enough 'friends' from Chicago.

Next you're going to tell me there's a North Bumfark Egypt. Like it makes a big farking difference.

Yeah, I'm sure I'll have a better time if I go to North Middle Of Farking Nowhere instead of Someplace Just South Of North Middle Of Farking Nowhere.

No reason at all that I can think of. But you said you didn't know there was crime in Nebraska and North Omaha is pretty much hell on earth. Just sayin'.

THIS

A homeless man was beat to death two blocks from me. A 16 year old kid was shot on 34th and Cass (in a friend's front yard, nevertheless). Last summer there was a stabbing half a block from my apartment building. Two doors down from me someone shot his brother. Yeah. No violence in Omaha whatsoever.

/and I live half a block from Dodge Street so this isn't North Omaha
//North Omaha is much worse
///needs to get the hell out of Omaha

Dundee? I used to live in an apartment on 50th & Capital - right behind the theater. Moved to Phoenix in '97 and haven't regretted it since.

Okay, count me among the farkers who need glasses. Honest to god, I thought this was a platform plank on dealing with crime or something, and I was all like "hmmm, well, that's different."
