To be brief, you're drawing a one-to-one correlation between criminals and people who aren't well-to-do. I hope you see the logical fallacy.

There are massive negative externalities to having the kind of artificially high poverty rate that we suffer from in DC. Surely you can't be arguing that's not the case?

(I say artificially high because by every measure, our poverty rate is astronomical when compared to the greater region. And we're seeking to artificially bolster it by programs like this. Not saying that's "right" or "wrong", just saying if we're going to be using large amounts of public funds, it's a debate we should have.)
