AN OPEN LETTER ON EXCESSIVE USE OF FORCE BY POLICE
For Immediate Release
July 18, 2016
God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the part with less honor so that there won’t be division in the body and so the parts might have mutual concern for each other. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part gets the glory, all the parts celebrate with it. (1 Cor. 12: 24b-26)
Greetings in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Less than a week has passed since the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police in Baton Rouge, LA and Falcon Heights, MN. Their deaths have triggered widespread protests as our nation once again faces the horrifying truth that police brutality is real, especially in economically depressed neighborhoods that are largely inhabited by our black and brown sisters and brothers.
