Kentucky governor Matt Bevin intends to address the high murder rate in Louisville with prayer. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Ben Mankiewicz, and Gina Graduate, the hosts of The Young Turks, inform you their method. Tell us exactly what you assume in the remark section below.

" LOUISVILLE, Ky.– Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin contacted the "power of petition" to assist battle Louisville's increasing murder price as he urged people to form prayer teams to stroll high-crime areas.

His plan, detailed at an area conference, was consulted with a mix of assistance and also derision. Bevin advised volunteers to create groups of 3-10 people that choose the very same block to walk at the same time of day, a minimum of two or three times a week. He urged individuals making a yearlong commitment.

" Walk around the block, time out on each edge, wish individuals there, relocate to the following edge," Bevin said later on in explaining his plan to reporters at a city park. "And over the course of the year, right here's what's mosting likely to happen – they're getting to recognize the people on the block."

Bevin, a socially conservative Republican, said it's a possibility for "people of faith to put their confidence to function." He hopes locals from the communities walk with people living elsewhere.

" Pretty unsophisticated. Pretty uncomplicated. Pretty standard," Bevin stated. "Yet I really think we're visiting a distinction in our city. I directly count on the power of prayer."

    This will literally solve nothing.

      Superior Octopus They are going to get those ministers shot or robbed.

    • Posted by Lyric Translator, at Reply

      It can cause a type of community building where people get to know neighbors they never knew before but I don’t think the prayer will affect anything :/

    • Posted by Jordan Gallant, at Reply

      icykid thats the only problem I got wrong with this idea of fear of something happening like this and bringing even more negativity to these poorer areas.

    • Posted by Nerd Life Crisis, at Reply

      Potentially, it could actually make matters worse. Put more targets in the line of fire. Also, given the love between conservative Christians & guns, how many prayer warriors will be armed while they pray?

    I know a certified way to significantly lessen murder rate. End the drug war. Oh also regulate guns.

    • Posted by cne08, at Reply

      That makes to much sense to religious fundamentalists like Matt Bevin.

    • Posted by Harmony Alexandria, at Reply

      It’s a territory, not a drug, thing. Groups of homicidal children decide that xxx block(s) belong to them, and set themselves up as “strong men”, challange their athority(or disrespect them if you are feeling suicidal) they shoot your stupid arse, or worse.

    The community talking won’t prevent the people in our city form continuing to be shot plus Matt faith without works is dead, you want to stop all the gun deaths maybe get the guns out of the neighborhoods.

    • Posted by sesshoumaru3st, at Reply

      Jackson Urwin No that’s a bad idea mate. We can’t get the guns out totally, we have to restrict access to bullits and some high powered weapons, regulate gun trafficing, instead of taking out the customers, eliminate the producers. A lot of criminals are within, so the government should do serious investigations from within. If we over regulate guns and they become scarce , the gangs,and criminal organizations will feed on that opportunity and it will get even worst.

    I live in Louisville, and this is the second year in a row he’s declared it the year of the Bible here in Kentucky. He’s also made it so that official State documents must begin with, wait for it, “In the year of our Lord”.

    By the way, being Christian doesn’t automatically put people on the right.

    • Posted by Snakeye808, at Reply

      Christians lean heavily Republican. It’s annoying when someone tries to take a stand against a general statement such as pointing out that not every Christian is a republican, as if everyone didn’t already know that. There are exceptions to every generality.

      Plus Christianity pressures people to be Republican with respect to issues like abortion and gay marriage, and by constantly telling Christians they are war with Democrats who want to destroy their religion (e.g. The war on Christmas that Fox talks about every year haha).

      of course it does. If you are a self respecting human being who doesn’t pander for virtue signaling – you are on the right.

      If you are white in any way and not constantly preaching about how horrible you are – you are on the right.

      If you are Christian – you are on the right.

      Because the left only cares about who you are, what identity they can label you since they don’t operate on ideas or facts they operate on identity.

    • Posted by Snakeye808, at Reply

      af dadE, so you’re saying that if you’re filled with hate for everyone who doesn’t precisely follow your interpretation of your religion and subscribe to your bigoted beliefs, then you’re a Republican. Sounds about right. You’re absolutely correct when you say the left only cares about who you are and they judge people based on their behavior, actions and character; not what religion you belong to, or what sex you’re attracted to, or what color your skin is, etc.

      Not many murders happen in streets, but okay.

    • Posted by Koen Diepen, at Reply

      Gang murders uselessly do

    • Posted by Smaakjeks K, at Reply

      +Koen
      Like I said, not many murders. Most people are killed by themselves, by friends, acquaintances, loved ones, or relatives. Most homicides happen in someone’s home.

      But still, having someone walking the streets to keep watch might mitigate crime. It may not be the best use of one’s time, though.

    • Posted by ting280, at Reply

      crime will also go down if one of these prayer warriors gets hit in a shooting intended for someone else and it becomes a big political issue that right wingers can spin out of control, necessitating overwhelming police response.

    • Posted by benjamin Lanham, at Reply

      Smaakjeks K though we have a massive gang problem here and the cops aren’t doing much in the west end of louisville to solve it.

    separation of church and state is dead in republican states. they are just as bad as right wing Muslims who want sharia law

      Dave Z no basis in reality? not sure where you went to school, but when I was in school, we had history classes. And they taught us all about the last time christians had real governmental authority. Non believers tortured and burnt. theifs, hands chopped off. heathen tax, check. submit to christian authority or die or be driven out? check. For a thousand years, christian religious rule did this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_and_state_in_medieval_Europe

      …oh, one more thing….
      Why do you think Uganda started this anti-gay crusade? Ever hear of a group of religious fanatics called “the family”. They visited Uganda before this happened. Look them up, they are very interesting, to say the least.
      Sen. John Ensign, Rep. Bart Stupak and Rep. Joe Pitts.
      The common factor among these political players is their involvement
      with the Family, a secretive fellowship of powerful Christian
      politicians that centers on a Washington, D.C., townhouse. Investigative
      journalist Jeff Sharlet has written extensively about the influential
      group in his book The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power.

    • Posted by Conservative Slayer, at Reply

      Dave Z
      Here’s the thing, there are almost no Christian nations. If you’re referring to the west they are all secular democracies. So you really can’t compare Christian countries to muslim countries since there are no Christian countries. And were there are Christian countries like Uganda than there is killing of gays. They were gonna make it law to kill gays until the west threatened them. But just because it’s not law doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.

      Not to mention Christian nations for most of it’s existence did do all those things you complain about Muslims doing. It’s only after the west ditched Christianity that those things stopped happening.

      Snigdha M Well, part of “conversion therapy” they will sometimes use times use electro-shock “therapy” among other brutal, inhumane psychological and at times physical abuse. This is promoted by some right wing religious groups, Mike pence actually has signaled his support for conversion therapy in the past.

    • Posted by bdawggification, at Reply

      Snigdha M It sure isn’t a popular practice, thankfully. Its concerning though that there are people with such high power in government that would support this.
