More Americans Say That You Can Be Good Without God?

Image
Reader for the first time, a majority of Americans — 56 percent — say it is possible to be a good person without a religious belief. So says new Pew Research Center data drawn from two polls conducted among about 5,000 American adults in June and July. “God is not a prerequisite for good values and morality,” Greg Smith, Pew’s associate director of research, said in a post about the findings. ” … [T]he public’s increased rejection of the idea that belief in God is necessary for morality is due, in large part, to the spike in the share of Americans who are religious ‘nones.

Most Police Have No Vested Interest In The Communities They Patrol


Readers, I like this interesting idea by Tim Wise: 

The problem with police forces isn't that they're too white (after all, as James Baldwin noted long ago, some of the most feared cops in Harlem were black because they had something to prove). Rather, the problem is, they are not chosen by the community and not accountable to it.

Comment:  You can't FEAR a community, the environment and its people, AND hold a "protect and serve" place for it. Those dots don't connect. Somehow ... don't know how ... but somehow ... worlds need to be bridged that allow understanding of the community's contextual factors that affect its citizens.
Readers do you agree?

  2. This sounds like a great idea, especially if the person is not from the area. Being an officer is more than just a set of technical skills. Of course, nothing is perfect. But, Everyone can benefit when they feel they share a goal - safe communities.
