Obama DOJ Announces Plan to Pay Community Organizers $163 Million to ‘Build Trust’The link takes you to this ABC News story:
The Obama administration announced plans today to build trust between police and communities they serve.
Now the rioters will be rewarded.
... Part of the announced plan today includes hiring positions (community organizers) to focus on building community trust. The DOJ is setting aside $163 million for this operation.

Grants will provide a total of up to $163 million to state, local, territory and tribal law enforcement agencies to meet a variety of resource needs, including sworn officer positions, training and technical assistance, and expansion of problem-focused task forces.So these grants aren't going to ACORN-like organizations. They're going to the police. Go to the link if you want to read the details.
