“It’s not enough to say ‘enough is enough” Faith Leaders gather in response to community violence . . .

“Last week, some of Milwaukee’s faith leaders gathered to say “enough is enough” — after 13-month-old Bill Thao lost his life. A bullet fired into a home near 73rd and Mill took the baby boy’s life. No one is in custody. Now, just over one week after his death, we’re learning more about an “adopt a block” program faith leaders hope will help to put an end to the violence.

In front of Tabernacle Community Baptist Church last Tuesday night, December 30th faith leaders and elected officials announced a plan to combat the violence — churches will “adopt a block.”

“Each church will be responsible for a block. You will get to know your block — everybody on your block — all the landlords and homeowners. We want the bad landlords and the criminal activity out of the community,” Milwaukee Alderman Russell Stamper said.”
