STATEMENT FROM NEW YORK STATE CONSERVATIVE PARTY CHAIRMAN GERARD KASSAR ON NEW YORK CITY’S PROPOSAL TO PAY LAWBREAKERS WITH TAX DOLLARS
Brooklyn-NY…“Is it us, or is paying violent protesters $21,500 each for having broken the law a universally ridiculous idea — an idea almost as ludicrous as giving marijuana retail licenses to former drug dealers?
“By encouraging criminal behavior, with taxpayer money no less, New York is giving up any hope of becoming a just and civil society again. The New York State Conservative Party strongly condemns any incentivization of criminal behavior, a concept that can hardly be viewed as radical.
“The law-abiding public should be outraged by this proposal, as are we. Enriching lawbreakers for illegal behavior is just plain nuts.”
