Thankful for folks taking seriously in 2019 the reality of Human trafficking and slavery in the U.S. AND THANKFUL for my sister Brandi Brandy Dobbins and so many others making folks aware of the very REAL experiences of men/women who were lied on...wrongfully accused...and imprisoned as a result with years stolen from their lives before people/local organizations came together to encourage one another in setting folks free.
#equaljusticeinitiative, #innocenceproject, #georgiainnocenceproject, #innocenceatlanta, #thenationalmemorialforpeaceandjustice,Prison Break, StoryCorps in Atlanta and so many others are doing critical work in the field. But as mentioned recently, I have been wondering for a minute on reactions I notice EVERY TIME I've been to a Passion Conference or heard discussions on human trafficking: -A girl is forced to work in a field or a brothel or sweat shop for labor and the outcry is immense, with rebuke for saying "It is what is" when others say Jesus wants girls to be free and not exploited. -A girl or male is wrongfully accused by corrupt officers and given 15 years or a life sentence and separated from families/forced to do labor...and the resposne is ignoral or dismissal OR being told "They deserve it" or quickness to say #bluelivesmatter...the moment you try to set folks free from that system.
I'm glad for the voices saying "Be glad for the voices of those working to end trafficking abroad in Africa or Asia and at the same time PAY ATTENTION to what happens on Cobb Pkwy." I'm thankful for folks saying we need to pray for GLOBAL work/missions and LOCAL missions as well...the girls trafficked (alongside kids like those in cocoa slave trade) and the young men/women I know who've been fearful to drive at night cause they know others who didn't make it home... And are still asking folks "Please remember me and hear my story" (Hebrews 13). Jesus does not discriminate with compassion and if you see that in church, you can easily begin to wonder "Is Jesus here fully?" But I'm praying for this...#the13th is no joke.

We will never forget our fallen. This year, our fallen's mother will step out into the light and raise money for us all. I can't imagine how this feels for her but it makes me happy to see her publicly embrace her daughter's memory that we all cherish so much.
Please support her and let's get her well over her goal!
I have first hand verified that this is legitimate find raiser and goes directly to Deputy Hollis's mother. (Wright was her maiden name)
I strongly believe the lives' of all Law Enforcement Officer's matter. This is not to say anyone else's life is less valuable. All lives' matter. Black lives. White lives. Asian lives. Latinx lives. Muslim lives. Construction workers lives', nurses, mailmen, fast food workers, department store cashiers, everyone no matter what they do in life. We do need to END this massive hatred of Officers. We need to end the MURDER of Officers and K-9 dogs. A vast majority of cops are GREAT people, and we are serving the community and trying our hardest everyday, 24/7. We have to be strong, kind, respectful, loving, and on alert to protect the people every day. The media needs to show more often the honorable actions of Officers, rather than mostly potential excessive force cases they do show. Yes they happen, yes they are a problem. Police brutality does need to end. When 148 Officers died last year, and 27 K-9 dogs, they gave the ultimate sacrifice. Or the 7 Officers and 1 K9 that have died in 2019. The killing of Officers makes the problem significantly worse. Every day Officers may be killed. Each time they walk up to a car, or to a house, or community event may be their last. Please respect our LEO's. Please show support. We can turn this around. This country does not have to live this way and be so divided. I thank you all, and I love each one of you. May God keep all of our LEO's safe, and all the people in America too. God bless the great country of America!! 💙 #bluelivesmatter#blacklivesmatter#alllivesmatter
CLEVELAND HEIGHTS - The Fox 8 I-Team has learned a Cleveland Heights police officer is recovering after his cruiser was hit by a vehicle.
It happened around 9 Monday night on Cedar Road.
Officer Tyler Freeman had just cleared an unrelated traffic stop and was getting into his cruiser when the crash took place.
Surveillance video shows a black colored vehicle crossing double lines and going straight towards Freeman’s cruiser.
“I was behind the door, the door slammed my arm,” Freeman can be heard telling another officer on his body camera video.
Freeman was taken to the hospital. He was released the next day and is expected back to work next week.
The driver of the Jeep that struck the officer’s cruiser, Tylor Fitch, told officers he was “just sleepy.”
He was issued a citation for several traffic charges, including failure to control. He voluntarily submitted to a blood test. Additional charges could be filed.
“I am just very thankful our officer will be alright and no one else was injured,” said Cleveland Heights Police Chief Annette Mecklenburg.
