NO Kidding

North #Omaha aren’t doing their job, by not contributing to ending the cycle of violence in the community

I’m glad that Ben has finally figured out that some of these groups.

I’ve been saying it for year.

Prayer walks are good, but you’ve got to actually have to change the culture.I know that it can be done, but you’ve got to put in the work.

It takes a village.

Report IT

“Calling the suspect or the parents during that (investigative) process can jeopardize the child’s safety — especially if that parent is a suspect,” said Gene Klein, the head of Omaha’s Project Harmony. “Law enforcement want to be the ones talking to parents first. They’re still in an unsafe environment until that gets dealt with.”

As a child of abuse (living in Michigan) at the time. The first call should be to authorities.

Michigan would call the child & do an on phone investigation. (This was prior to 1996).

Where do you think the call was made too?

Who do you think was there doing the call?

My Day

BUT it’s not all roses, I can’t find my television remote right now.

Supreme Court rules states must allow same-sex marriage –

But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”

“If you are among the many Americans—of whatever sexual orientation—who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision. Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal,” he wrote. “Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”

The life & times of Vernon J has been pretty easy.
