Some folks only understand violence

Why don’t the residents of crime-ridden areas protest when someone in their area kills another, just as they do when they allege that a person is killed by a police officer? If they do then violence in these areas will cease or be less.

The RC archbishop has joined the voices against capital punishment and other crime-fighting initiatives by advocating turning to Jesus. People for years have tried this and what has been the result? 

I believe this clergyman does not know that Jesus became angry and violently drove the money lenders out of the synagogue, which shows that prayer alone does not work on some people. Some people only react to force meted out on them. Other than that, they believe that you are weak.

Why don’t you advocate that there should be no law enforcement agencies, only churches?
