Mississippi mayor offers $10,000 for criminals to leave city
A Mississippi mayor announced on Monday that he’s ready to spend thousands of dollars of his own money to get rid of criminals in his city, according to Newsweek.
Clarksdale mayor Chuck Espy said at a press conference that he is willing to relocate those who commit crimes with an initial offer of $10,000. The purpose, he said, is to encourage lawbreakers to start a new life elsewhere.
“They may be in the wrong environment,” Espy said. “So, what I’m saying as the mayor today, I will put money on the line to assist those type of people to move out of the city.”
The mayor said he is specifically targeting three groups of people, including “drug dealers, gang members and any wannabe criminals in the city of Clarksdale.” The hope is that they can find better opportunities in other places.
Espy’s moving assistance fund is part of a “five-point plan” that also consists of a no tolerance policy, preservation of lives, rehabilitation programs and intervention. The initiative builds on a corrective action plan that the city formulated last year to limit criminal activity.
