The Houston Police Department has a long history working with the minority community in the city. The strategy to working together was to implement community-oriented policing. This strategy uses problem-solving techniques and partnerships to proactively manage the environment. Watching these officers go around to these people and help them is heartwarming.
When there is good chemistry between the police and the community members, it usually leads to positive things -- including a drop in the crime rate. There are more smiles and less frowns. Some people in the community are usually aware of who commits the crimes, but a relationship must be built before trust can become a factor. NYC began using this system early in the 1990s and crime went down in every category as time went on.
Many of the people who are now homeless had successful lives and college degrees, but things went downhill unfortunately. God loves us all equally, and these people are just lost and need someone to steer them in the right direction. more >>
Just one day after The Christian Post reported that a film entitled "I Am A Christian" about persecuted Sudanese Christian Mariam Ibraheem was planned for production, the team behind the project starring Stacey Dash has cancelled a $500,000 campaign that was launched to crowdfund it.
The campaign was scrapped after Ibraheem and her husband, Daniel Wani, came forward to publicly denounce the film, because they had not given Christian Lives Matter, LLC, the newly-formed company responsible for "I Am A Christian," rights to tell their story. The couple in fact only learned Tuesday through news reports that the project was being pursued without their permission.
"It's terrible. … It's not right," Wani told CP over the phone Wednesday. He expressed concern about filmmakers attempting to tell his family's dramatic story of persecution based solely on media reports and without his and Ibraheem's first-person accounts. more >>
