Take the last train from Clarksdale – From His Own Pocket, Clarksdale Mayor Pays Criminals $10,000 to Leave Town

 

Mayor Chuck Espy of Clarksdale, Mississippi, offers to pay drug dealers, gang members and other criminals to leave town…$10,000 each from his own pocket. Is this a good-hearted politician trying to give folks a second chance, or a fool offering a bad incentive with worse consequences.

  1. Leave town? How about paying them to leave the U.S. While we are on the subject…. offer anyone $10,000 to renounce their citizenship, hit the bricks and never come back. Goodbye all America haters

  2. Do you have to be a tried and convicted criminal or can you self identify as one? I haven’t planned my vacation destination yet this year.

  3. It would make more sense to send them, with a shiny new dollar, to Botany Bay in the sundries compartment of an aeroplane…

  4. I can’t think of a better way to attract criminals and drug dealers to his town.

    Besides, ten grand will buy a whole lot of bullets. And rope.
