Peacocke gets ready to 'kick a little butt'
A California minister has proposed the formation of neighborhood militias
as a way to fight crime. Dennis Peacocke, head of Strategic Christian
Services, says the $23 billion dollars Congress allocated for the
anti-crime bill should be divided among some 80 million able-bodied
men (women "really don't want to rally to blow people away," he says)
to fight neighborhood crime. Under his plan, each man would receive
$300 a year. "Who is going to commit crime," Peacocke suggests, "if
almost every third American is being paid to patrol the other two?"
"What a deal! Get rid of the bad guys, kick a little butt and receive
a supplementary income of $300 to boot."
"Equipping Christians," says Peacocke, "to rebuild the foundations
of our social order, as we occupy until Christ returns," is the ministry
of Strategic Christian Services. Working with church leaders, Pea-cocke
develops City Action Councils to deal with community problems in cities
throughout the nation.
