THE MOVEMENT IS ON FIRE: WE NEED YOU TO ENTER THE BURNING BUILDING

Published

on

On August 10, 2017, Sheriff Scott Walton of the Sheriff’s Office in Rogers County, Oklahoma defended Betty Shelby as he announced her recruitment as the 31st reserve deputy sworn into his department.  As reported by CNN’s Jessica Suerth, Sheriff Walton explained his support of Shelby by saying he’d hate to think that he was “sitting there quietly and letting a movement take over and take our ability to protect and not only protect people, but get officers killed.”

Respectfully, Mr. Sheriff Scott Walton, the “movement” is on fire and we need you, and every other law enforcement agency, to enter the burning building.  The movement you speak of is not one that incites violence against officers, but it is one that begs of officers to be better trained, to be less emotionally responsive, and more tactful in their encounters.  The movement you speak of is not one where your officers are protesting day after day, week after week, month after month, begging the communities to stop killing your unarmed officers.  The movement you speak of is not one that has disabled your ability to protect people, it is one that yearns for stronger relationships between community members and law enforcement so people trust you to safely patrol their streets again.  The movement you speak of desperately needs you to stop making statements in support of people who unapologetically shoot and kill unarmed constituents and start making statements to the people afraid of dying at the hands of your reserve deputies and active officers even if they do nothing wrong.

Firefighters enter burning buildings all the time.  They voluntarily enter the fire rescue profession, despite knowing they may get killed trying to save unknown people in a burning structure. They don’t say, “I won’t go inside because I might get burned.” And while the world appreciates the difference between a firefighter and a police officer, the integrity of your profession is analogous to theirs.  The community is the public and you joined the profession to serve them.  To protect them.  To save them.  They need to see that you will enter the burning building, that you will see the burning “movement” asking you to act like you care about what scares them, and address it, enter it, become a supporter of saving unknown people’s lives even if it means you might get burned.  We understand you want to save the lives of the officers who serve you, and believe it or not, a lot of people have a lot of respect for officers, even after all that has happened.  A lot of people have family members and friends who serve as law enforcement officers, so don’t think our movement means we don’t want them to come home safely.  We just want to see a change.  One where you show us just how far you’re willing to go to protect our lives too.

Will you go into the burning building?  Because, again, the movement is on fire.

Former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson, and his two business partners plan to open a 40-acre marijuana ranch 60 miles southwest of Death Valley National Park. According to mirror.com Tyson Ranch will allow growers to cultivate their crop and there will also be a cultivation school to help growers get the most out of their strains.

The operating company, Tyson Holistic, will employ mainly veterans and bring much needed jobs to the city it’s in.

The Heart of the Matter - Support The Club at Collington Square!

The November 26th Baltimore Sun story about East Baltimore neighborhoods was discouraging: “Poverty Makes a Powerful Statement”. The poorest area of East Baltimore, north of Hopkins Hospital, struggles with a grim list of challenges: poverty, violence, vacant properties, liquor stores and the lowest life expectancy in the city.

But in four renovated and connected rowhomes on Mura Street, behind four colorful doors, daily miracles are happening. The Club at Collington Square is an afterschool and summer program, a consistent, loving, educational haven for 92 children in a very tough neighborhood.

Here, Club staff are teaching and building the leaders this neighborhood and this city need. The staff know that changing young lives changes everyone’s future.

Program Director Vanessa Williams has intentionally recruited and developed a staff of young leaders as teachers and assistants — almost 100 percent of whom live in the neighborhood The Club serves. These dedicated staff provide a highly structured program between the hours of 3:15 and 6:30 chock full of academics, enrichment, play and homework help, and provide a snack and hot dinner cooked by The Club Chef in the on-site Community Kitchen. The program emphasizes student voice and leadership with roles for older scholars to mentor and serve younger scholars, and an elected student council.

Strong City Baltimore assumed operations of The Club at Collington Square when Episcopal Community Services of Maryland sought a more sustainable future. Strong City believes deeply in The Club and in its incredible staff, who do heroic work every day with some of Baltimore’s most vulnerable children.

Strong City assumed operations of The Club in October with a $130,000 deficit, which we have already reduced to $65,000. Your gift today will help us keep the doors open and enable the staff to be there every day with what our scholars need most: love, nourishment, academics and enrichment. It’s easy to despair when the headlines are so discouraging.

But we know that loving and investing in Baltimore’s children is the answer. Your gift will help the Club continue to build young leaders that will change Baltimore’s future.

Click here to give! Be sure to designate your gift to “The Club at Collington Square” and consider joining The Friends of The Club with a monthly gift of $100.
