Pray Away Crime?

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) unveiled his plan to fight crime in the city of Louisville on Thursday: Volunteer patrols that will not report or stop criminal activity, but pray it away.

Bevin suggested at a community meeting that volunteer groups of between three and 10 people would adopt specific blocks and walk around them while praying, according to WHAS, the Louisville ABC station.

“You know, you walk to a corner, pray for the people, talk to people along the way,” Bevin said, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. “No songs, no singing, no bullhorn, no T-shirts, no chanting. Be pleasant, talk to the people, that’s it.”

Bevin said participants would make year-long commitments, and even suggested specific zip codes for the roving bands of prayer police to patrol.

What's really criminal is a politician who has nothing left to offer his citizens but
prayer. Yes, it's really that criminal. The dude is actually (and probably intentionally)
inspiring more fear and more hate. Like all Republicans, he knows that fear and hate
keeps the masses asses. Pretty sure!
