Who supports outreach to at risk youth, families and comm...

Youth Outreach non profit specializing in intervention / prevention and diversion -arrived in JERSEY last year in August and has been reaching out to newspapers, community organizations and yet it seems not many has an interest in gang intervention or helping youth who are at risk of being recruited of impacted by the following (not limited to) homelessness, abused, neglected, gang or criminal impacted and more. We have received national media attention for the works we have been involved in and we care about our youth, families and children- we don't ask for donations or hand outs yet no one wants to hear about methods of outreach to those most at risk. If you have an interest in youth outreach, intervention, gang prevention and diversion or helping our communities- we want to hear from you. Gangs are recruiting in record numbers, kids are killing and dying- our children need to be a priority. From 2007 to 2009 more than 250,000 joined gangs that the FBI know about, if you Google gangs you will find disturbing information and facts. WE AS A COMMUNITY CAN HELP OUR YOUTH and families. If these issues are of interest let us hear from you, gang intervention youth outreach, addictions and violence in our communities, helping youth. bullying, mental health issues and more..  (Apr 8, 2014 | post #1)

When Whites Are Slain, Do You Fear Blacks Did It? -- Cour...

LOVE is the ultimate answer for all this hate, anger and aggression. Whites, blacks, brown and red all of us bleed the same color and JESUS loves each and every one of us. Yeh that's right- call me a JESUS freak or bible thumper but I am here to say and share, I was once hate filled and angry, spending many years locked inside jails and prisons where racism is absolutely a main focus for everyone and today I am blessed by the LOVE of JESUS and His mercy to now be working with, reaching out to and helping youth, families and communities who include all cultural backgrounds. White, black, red and brown and every one of us make mistakes and do bad things and no one race is better. JESUS is the way, the truth and the life. Evil comes in all colors, sizes and shapes and we need to make love a priority. I lift up everyone who posted and who reads this post and any other post that includes racism and hate. I was once blind and now I see and LOVE is the ultimate and Love is powerful enough to change even the least of us.  (Apr 3, 2014 | post #201)

City Council Votes Down Crime Emergency Resolution

Society just don't understand how jail and prison overcrowding is impacting and effecting our communities, and there is no blame that will ever help any of us. Truth is, jails and prisons hold over 2 million people at this very moment and although law enforcement are doing their job in locking up the guilty, society needs to consider this; Jails and prisons are training centers for some of the most deadly gangs. Gangs that are reaching from their cells into our communities, killing and recruiting in record numbers. So the answer is not lock em up, build more prisons or blame those who commit a crime on everything bad happening. Many go to jail or prison for just a short stay, and they emerge worse than ever because they are forced into violence and gang lifestyles in such a way that by time they get out, they are deep in and cant get out. Or, they are a victim and get killed, or stabbed and beaten, mentally scaring them forever. I spent over 15 inside some of the bloodiest joints in the U.S. and only by the grace of GOD am I alive and living to serve Christ and willing to help or reach out to those who are at risk. Every one of us are guilty of thinking we know who is to blame or what can make this all change and get better. I know I am guilty of this at times myself and will confess today only Truth. GOD is our only hope. You could lock up every gang member today or move them out of Trenton and in a week new gang members will arrive or kids watching tv will start up a set (gang lingo) that will grow in numbers, violence and chaos. So what is the answer? LOVE.LOVE.LOVE. That's right. We can reach out with love to those most at risk try to help them change their lives before they get locked up and to those already in the life, share Love and hope. JESUS can change the most violent, mentally ill and sick person and friends this is TRUTH.  (Apr 3, 2014 | post #11)

N.J. authorities indict 14 accused Gangster Killer Bloods...

law enforcement are doing their job by locking up the guilty but what society seems to have no understanding or clue about it the fact that there are over 2 million people incarcerated in the U.S. and jails and prisons are mostly training centers for the most deadly gangs in the U.S. Those jail and prison gangs on the inside often are the shot callers to the street gangs. Murder and crime is hitting the streets and ordered by gang members and leaders on the inside. From 2007 20 2009 more than 250,000 joined gangs that the FBI knows about and this number has been rising fast. What do I care? How do I know this? I was one of those at risk kids who got mislead and followed the path into crime, drugs, jails and prisons where gangs tried to recruit and kill me for years. 15+ years inside some of America's bloodiest prisons (only by the GRACE of GOD) am I alive and out here now serving JESUS as His servant. Legally ordained and rightfully I can use a title like Reverend or Pastor but I am just a servant of Christ who is blessed to now be reaching out to others at risk. I connected with hundreds if not thousands of community leaders, Pastors and congregations since my release from prison in 2006 and after being rejected time and time again I established a youth outreach ministry and decided to be vigilant for JESUS . Hundreds of organizations, professionals and others have rejected the works of reaching out to those most at risk, it seems to be a competition out here to work for JESUS and or to be in ministry and that is sad. The kids matter, not who gets the credit for helping them. PRAYING for all the lost and all who are on the front lines for JESUS .  (Apr 2, 2014 | post #6)

Who cares about kids being recruited (forced) into gang a...

Since 2006 I have met with thousands of community leaders, Pastors, congregations, child advocates and parents and not many really have a true care or concern for all the hundreds of thousands of kids who are falling through the cracks, joining gangs, getting addicted to drugs, getting locked up, dying and killing. Law enforcement is doing their part making arrests and proof is there are over 2 million people in the U.S. who are locked inside jails and prisons. The deadliest gangs in the U.S. are training inside jails and prisons and recruiting in record numbers. Often times murders and crime on American streets are ordered from gang leaders and members who are themselves incarcerated. Society has no understanding or clue of this and the numbers of kids and adults joining gangs today is in the hundreds of thousands. From 2007 to 2009 more than 250,000 joined gangs and that number has grown rapidly and there is no stopping this vicious cycle. We must step forward and stand up for the youth of today, they should be a priority. What do I care? How can I qualify or share about this and be taken seriously? I lived the life. Arrested by age 20 facing hundreds of years for money related crimes. I spent 15 years being transferred from one bloody prison to another. Gangs tried to recruit and kill me. Only by the GRACE of GOD am I alive and out here serving JESUS living to reach the lost. From the Midwestern town of Beloit Wisconsin to the Tennessee Mountains and Knoxville area to New Jersey and New York I am meeting hundreds of community leaders, child advocates and professionals who just don't know how to work with youth who are impacted, effected of involved in those dark lifestyles, and it doesn't seem to be a priority. FRIENDS, the children are the future and we invite you to share and give insight and input. lets pray for our nations children, families and community leaders. JESUS is our only hope.  (Apr 2, 2014 | post #1)

Street Gangs, should they be domestic terrorists?

Many people don't realize and know that the jails and prisons in America house more than 2 million people and those places are only training centers to the most deadly gangs. Law enforcement lock them up doing their part but then those locked up are trained to steal, destroy and kill and often by time they get out they are either forced or lead deeper into the criminal gang lifestyle leading to much more vulgar and dangerous violence... I am a youth minister today (only because of JESUS CHRIST) but I spent 15 plus years inside some of Americas bloodiest prisons and gangs tried to recruit and kill me all them years. Gangs are recruiting in record numbers- it is no joke or laughing matter.  (Apr 2, 2014 | post #5)
