The host of Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week, the nationally respected public safety advocate Bill Murray, has a special mission: to address issues of child abuse. But his concerns are much deeper than that. Mr. Murray was once best known as the founder of LA Community Policing, his reaction to the events of 9-11. Ever since early 2002 he's published its web site, at LACP.org, which encourages residents to engage in public safety, homeland security and in helping their neighbors reduce crime, the fear of crime and improve the quality of life. Originally a regional nonprofit effort, LA Community Policing's web site has grow to some 6000 pages, and long ago was identified by the US Dept of Justice as the world's largest grassroots nonprofit effort devoted to community-based policing. In 2009, the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse was launched (NAASCA.org), based on Bill's personal life experienced. "Very few adults have escaped many years of severe child abuse, trafficking, and kidnapping. But I have, and for over 30 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects. Once my parents were gone, I decided to devote my remaining time, money and available energy to this vitally important cause." On Sundays join Bill, MJ Goyings, RN, and Carol D Levine, author / activist, on "Community Matters" This Week as they discuss the most recent events and news from the worlds of both public safety and child abuse. Monday to Friday the "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) show features frequent visits from special guests telling their stories, and episodes dedicated to solution oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. Bill host and Carol D. Levine co-host these episodes, which always include a panel discussion. All shows include LIVE chat rooms, and call-in participation

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guest is Reverend Larry Ross from Gerald, Missouri, Vice President of "Knights for the Innocent" and National Chaplain and the Founder of the "Pay it Forward" TV channel ministry on You Tube. Larry grew in a single parent home with a drunk abusive father and 2 little brothers after his mother took off. "Dad was always angry and drunk when not at work and would beat us at the drop of a hat," he says. "I remember him beating my Mom so bad that I grabbed his 22. cal revolver and made him stop." The years of sexual abuse he experienced came from a man his Dad and Mom knew. "They made us call him 'Uncle Don'." At around 13 he discovered the world of drugs and drinking. One evening his Dad started to beat on his littlest brother. "I just snapped, breaking his noise and eye socket and hitting him over and over until I thought he was dead. I jumped up and ran down to Dixie's apartment, who is now my wife." At this point they've been together 29 years. She had two young children who'd been sexually abused by her ex-husband. "I know God put me in their house to be their protector," Larry says. It took a while but he got himself on a better path. "I didn't even really look for God," says Larry, "he found me after I spent my life doing drugs drinking and selling weed." Tragedy in his family didn't stop him. "It's all cogs on a wheel that God has planned for my life because now I get the honor of standing up for those too afraid to reach out and ask for help themselves."
