$4 billion for the president’s proposal “to help keep 15,000 cops on the streets in cities and towns across the country.”
Really only small municipalities have money problems. Bigger ones, like the feds, are always just bitching because they want more money to do the same thing
$20 million to “give states stronger incentives to make [relevant] data available [for background checks]
This is fed stuff. FFLs dont call Barney Fife when they do a background check
“$14 million to help train 14,000 more police officers and other public and private personnel to respond to active shooter situations.”
Why can't they just get the on-the-job training that is already available? Police Unions FTW
$10 million for the Centers for Disease Control to conduct further research, including investigating the relationship between video games, media images, and violence.
WTF does the CDC have to do with any of this? C
enter for D
$20 million to expand the National Violent Death Reporting System
FBI already does this
$150 million to “put up to 1,000 new school resource officers and school counselors on the job.”
$150 fricking million dollars for 1,000 more cops, are you shitting me?
$30 million of one-time grants to states to help their school districts develop and implement emergency management plans.
Already in place. Have been strongly in place since 9/11 IMHO.
$50 million to help 8,000 schools “create safer and more nurturing school climates
Teacher's Union FTW
$50 million to “train social workers, counselors, psychologists, and other mental health professionals
Don't they go to school for this exact thing? Don't they already get paid for this exact thing?
So by my calculations, only $105 million is needed to keep exactly what we have in place plus some mental health awareness
