I applaud the efforts of the church and the police department. When people say they want to do better if the opportunity is presented to them they will choose better. If you are not effected by the violence you can remain negative about them wanting to change. What are you willing to contribute as an outsider other than a negative comment. It takes all to make a difference. If it was in your neighborhood you would probably feel different. It's not in my neighborhood but I am concerned about the loss of lives over senselessness.
