The Truth about Homicide

(anyone know how to enlarge?)

I listened to this radio program back a few months and was deeply impressed with the compassion expressed for ALL involved in this suffering. I found it just now by accident and felt that certainly we at The Journey of Hope care about many of these same issues along with the need for way more prevention...even, no ESPECIALLY in such times as ours today with the need to prioritize lessening funds for helping people.

"The truth about homicide," she says, "is that it is black men in their 20s, in their 30s, in their 40s. The way we guide money and policy in this country, we do not care about those people. It's not described as what's central to our homicide problem, and I wanted people to see that. I wanted people to see those lives and to see that that's our real homicide problem in America."The money needs to go to black male argument violence," she continues. "Anything else … you're dealing with the margins of the problem, statistically, and it's not right." For this article GO here
