Sacramento Approves Program to Pay Gang Members for Peace


The City Council in Sacramento, Calif. last week unanimously approved the controversial  “Advance Peace” program, through which the city offers cash stipends to gang members who remain peaceful.

The 9-0 council vote came after a violent weekend in California’s state capital during which a 49-year-old father was gunned down at Meadowview Park, Fox40 reported.

The victim, Ernie Cadena, was in the “wrong place at the wrong time” when he was shot and killed by a man believed to be a gang member.

“It was his only day off from work, and he just came to the wrong place at the wrong time,”said Aliseah Cadena, the victim’s daughter “He was a wonderful father, and he was a soon-to-be father. And I wish I could have him back.”
