‘Put the guns down’: Local groups meet to end street crime

COLUMBUS, Ga — Two local groups say they are uniting to end violence in the community. The National Joshua Generation Liberation Fraternity and the Nation of Islam announce Thursday they have a cohesive plan to get young men on the right track and off the streets.

The initiative calls for “100 black men to put the guns down and work with no limits to stop the killing and moral decline in our community.”

Minister Antonio Carter says:

“We’re tired of the degregation in our community. Were tired of watching other people kill us. Were tired of watching us kill us, its an epidemic and it’s time for black men to get up and do something for the state of our community and we refuse to be silent.”

He says a key point of action will be to go before the mayor and ask for a comprehensive review on the crime prevention program. He says the review will help them see it the program is being used the right way.
