Statistics are showing that violent crime is actually on the decline, but media reports of killings,robberies, and assaults give the impression that danger is everywhere, and the future looks grim. In fear, hordes of people are rushing to buy firearms and security systems. Who are these nameless, faceless people that we are protecting ourselves from? Is the media selling fear on purpose? Why? The daily stories of killings are certainly for real, and yet, what if there are many more acts of kindness and consideration by strangers that never get reported? Journalist Nate Clay, host of the television talk show "Seven Days Chicago" talks about distortions in the Media and the political and economic incentives for the media to sell fear to the public. Who stands to gain when the public becomes suspicious and hysterical? How can the negative impressions of growing inner city crime be reversed?
Join us on Monday, April 27, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. for a very special interview with the retiring Chief of the Tampa Police Department. Jane Castor’s decisive leadership is evident in all aspects of her 31 year career. She was elected the first
female president of a police academy class and 26 years later, she became the first woman to lead the
Tampa Police Department. Chief Castor has redefined community policing in her hometown and driven
down the crime rate with her innovative approach to fighting crime.
Over the course of her career, Chief Jane Castor built a reputation for working side by side with
residents, community leaders, business owners and neighboring law enforcement agencies to reduce
crime and improve the quality of life in Tampa. Those community partnerships are the foundation of
TPD’s dynamic crime reduction strategy, “Focus on Four.” Since its induction in 2003, the plan has
reduced violent and property crime by 70%.
Jane’s strong leadership style is balanced with her efforts to help Tampa’s most disadvantaged children.She recently opened the doors of a multi-million dollar gymnasium for the Police Athletic League. The new facility is now serving more than 300 at-risk children. The department also opened a brand new safe haven for children called the RICH House. It’s the second of its kind offering a safe environment for children to thrive and for parents to connect with social services. Chief Castor’s commitment to at-risk kids is exemplified in her new Young Adult Police Academy. It targets kids on the verge of becoming involved in crime.
Join us as we say farewell to Chief Jane Castor and commend her for serving the City of Tampa and it's diverse communities with distinction.

Black on Black crime is when black people overtly focus, criticize, or analyze other black people in areas they wont consider about white people or anyone else.
We can blame the absence of sports activities. We can blame the absence of safe neighborhood parks. We can blame the absence of music and choir and band in the schools. We can blame the absence of classes that teach viable trades. We can blame police who harass and humiliate young men at will. We can blame neighborhood stores that can't or won't offer jobs to local young men. We can blame the gun shops that carelessly sell multiple firearms without regard to how they will be used. We can blame the Mayor, the Governor, the President. But truly, the out of control rage that makes a boy shoot someone to death is triggered by something else on the inside. He was not loved and nurtured by a good man. Whether his father was forced out of his life or left voluntarily, or stayed around but was abusive, a young boy who kills has been through something. We need to know what that is, because it didn't just start at the age of 12,13,14,15,16, or 17 when he chose to commit a murder. Community activist and youth mentor Gregory Sain discusses the crisis of violent black male youth and what must be done by men who are of strong will and good conscience. He may say some things that surprise you, so get ready for a spirited conversation
