Crowd Powered Action Comes To Philly
Philly's crime has taken the lives of many young black men and now an effort to turn the tide around is bring together the police, community leaders and the young men who live in Philly to help bring an end to the violence.
CAN THOUSANDS of men be recruited to flood the streets of Philadelphia's most crime-ridden neighborhoods as volunteer peacekeepers?
Philadelphia's top cop, Sylvester Johnson, thinks so, and the commissioner has committed the cooperation of his department to "A Call to Action: 10,000 Men," being promoted by religious and civic leaders.
Johnson joined record-industry mogul Kenny Gamble and others yesterday to urge men to volunteer for training and community patrol assignments.
