Stop police brutality

Police brutality is a jagged edged sword of pure evil and a deadly corruption deeply embedded in the troubled heart and soul of America.

All men and women of integrity must fight the forward fight of faith against it by speaking truth to power, marching in the streets and advocating for real justice in the courts for all victims of police brutality. As we do this, we also must honor the good cops who have not been corrupted and who serve their community with great honor and distinction so that they will have the inner strength and essential wholeness to stand up against the vicious and deadly horrors of police brutality in America today.

The voice of the blood of Eric Garner, Philando Castile, Michael Brown, Justine Damond and countless other victims murdered by police brutality cries for justice.
