Black Leader Says Justice Served in Ferguson, Brown Not ‘Raised Properly,’

    A prominent black Christian leader who works with youth states that he believes justice was served by the grand jury in Ferguson yesterday, asserting that teenager Michael Brown had “not been raised properly” and was headed down a dangerous life of crime. He is warning that if parents do not train their children in the ways of the Lord, more incidents like Ferguson will occur in cities across America.

    Jesse Lee Peterson, a California pastor, president of the organization BOND (the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny), and leader of the BOND Leadership Academy for youth issued a statement Monday night applauding the jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

    “The decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson proves that our justice system works,” he stated. “The outcome shows that justice prevailed despite a concerted effort by rabble rousers, corrupt civil rights ‘leaders,’ Attorney General Eric Holder, and even President Barack Obama, who attempted to tip the scales of justice and convict the officer without due process.”

    “Emboldened by irresponsible public statements made by race baiters like Al Sharpton, and Eric Holder, the professional community organizers have been planning to create havoc in Ferguson for months. Some are looking for an excuse to loot and riot,” Peterson continued, his statement issued just as protesters turned violent Monday night, burning down businesses and police cars, and smashing storefronts while stealing goods and liquor.

    Peterson told Christian News Network that he believes at the heart of the issue, the responsibility lies with parents to train their children to live uprightly.

    That's funny, I've been watching MSNBC and they didn't interview him.

    God has commanded His children to overcome evil with good?

    How can we do that when our pastors are telling us to obey the evil doers?

    See Romans 13 for more information.
