Thursday, Jan 1, 2009 at 12:55 a.m. in Baltimore City a 31-year old African American man is shot at a bar by another African-American male. That 31-year old male did not even get to start the New Year as others because he later died at a Baltimore City hospital. Crime in America has become as traditional as American Cherry Pie. The prevalence of violence has become so systematic, endemic, epidemic, and pandemic. For this reason, many perpetrators are immune and impugn to the collateral damages that outweigh the resolve to solve the culture of self-annihilation and self genocide. {{more}}This short article serves a dual purpose: it highlights, respectfully, that the criminal justice does not and can not stop crimes, drugs, and violent behavior without the input of children, youth and families of both the victims and the perpetrator, and it serves as a basis to advocate, to design, to develop, and to implement the empiricism of the ex-offender population, who have changed their thinking, their behavior, and their life style as a result of learning the core elements addressed within “The Psychology and Sociology of Criminology and Cognitive Restructuring”. Saturday, February 14, 2009 a 30-year old African American man became involved in a dispute at a local Baltimore bar and was shot in the head by another African-American male and died. This was the ninth murder in this Baltimore District this year. It seems as though everyone knows what is needed in order to confront the issue of violence and crime. Although, many believe that crime is best addressed through a combination of programs, services, employment opportunities, substance abuse treatment, and other hard skills needed via assessment tools, these models alone have failed. However, experience is the best teacher which has shown us as ex-offenders that our soft skills and needs must be met to ensure a long-term behavioral modification skill set to deter and decrease recidivism.Most of the violent crimes are committed by repeated offenders. Moreover, in many cases, many of the victims of these crimes, via to the participation in the drug culture, have prior records. These records indicate that they are repeated offenders. Henceforth, the realities to promote habilitation as a core element of re-integration is as fundamental to successful re-entry as food, air, and water are essential to life. Moreover agencies such as law enforcement, courts, and corrections via the criminal justice system, by its very philosophical nature, are an adversary system within and of itself. The outcomes of those being released indicate that what has been supposedly working is not really working at all to decrease recidivism.Tuesday, February 10th, 2009 at 7 a.m. a body was found floating along a river in Baltimore City. This was the body of a 26-year old African-American man, whom had been abducted on Feb. 1, 2009. On February 17th, 2008 a 29-year old African-American male was sentenced to 33 years for the murder of his younger brother during an argument about their living quarters. Consequently, we ask the questions, what is the reason why so many black males are chronic offenders? What is the reason why the victims of these black males are other black males, whom are also chronic offenders? How can our communities collectively challenge the few individuals who live to die as oppose to dying to live. They are dying to live a violent-free, crime-free, and drug-free lifestyle. The biggest most important question, however, is where are the blacks to derail this genocide brutality versus promoting a crime-free lifestyle?You may view more information about FOXO’s activities by entering Fraternal Order of X-Offenders on the google.com search engine.Orders for DVDs, requests for seminar presentations or training, direct all questions, comments and concerns to: Brother Ellsworth Johnson-Bey Founder/PresidentFraternal Order of X-Offenders, Inc Proper Education Always Corrects Error P.O.
