"Community Matters" - SPECIAL EDITION - "Violence in America; who's responsible?" ~~ There's an amazing amount of violence in our society, and perhaps it's part of the American fabric. Ever since Colonial times we've been literally fighting for land, for opportunity, for rights and for what's become known as 'The American Dream.' Our country was born out of a desire for individual, and eventually collective, independence. Using violence to overcome whatever obstacles we perceived as bring hurdles to our progress has been a naturally reoccurring tool. But is it right? Tonight we'll take a look at what contributes to the stats, who is being killed, where the highest homicide rates occur and how the problem might be addressed in the future. We'll examine death by cops, discuss the uniqueness of our 2nd Amendment and some of the issues on owning firearms, and share how decayed and desperate communities contribute to violent crime. ~~ Bill Murray, our host, is the well-respected community voice of public safety, violence prevention and a leader in crime fighting and anti-child abuse efforts. His significant circle of influence includes his work as the founder of both LA Community Policing (LACP.org) and the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA.org).
