In every community, there are different problems. The problem that you have encountered, someone somewhere, has encountered it too. So, it is the silence of people that exasperates the situation. If you do not act, many people will continue to face it and so the society will be shaken. When it comes to addressing these issues, the process will be simple and the problems will be fixed if people address the problems in the property and courteous way. In different communities, for example, there are minorities that face police brutality, violence, and other forms of mistreatment. In addressing these problems, they are those that vow to retaliate even in a higher aggressive manner. But history has shown that this mode of response does not bring any better result but it does only exasperate the situation. Those who chose to use this mode have failed and so those who want to try it or planning to respond in this way should also change it. The best course of action is to have a community meeting. In such meetings, you find people from different levels of government institutions such as law enforcement officers, church, other faith-based organizations, education, human rights activists, and so many others. You can be sure that there are no problems that cannot be solved by people in all those services.
In fact, everyone wants people even law enforcement. Their work will be easy if there is no violence in the society. The fear between the police officers and certain minorities is what brings suspension and confrontation between them. In some cases, the police say that certain groups of people behave in a suspicious way. Their ways of life prove them to be criminals. And those groups say that police and other law enforcement personnel use excessive power and sometimes abuse their authorities when dealing with individuals from these minority groups. There are cases of those who were jailed without any justification – they were arrested while walking around and taken in the custody. There are other higher cases or murdering and assassination by police against these minorities. And what’s more, there has never been the investigation and trials as to why those individuals were killed by police. These are some of the problems that minority groups face in different countries. The good news is that through community meetings, people are free to present their injustice problems and express their grief, knowing that something will be done. In those meetings, all individuals will be taught about law and how one should respond to a police officer when being questioned by them. In this way, individuals will learn how law enforcement personnel work and what is their mandate. On the side of the law enforcement personnel, they will learn about the consequences caused by their brutality. In this way, they will correct what is necessary into their service – and remember that they work for the security of the residents but not against them. This is how community problems can be solved in a non-violent manner. Also, in these meetings, you will learn about other opportunities that are available such as education scholarships, etc. You can see whether you or your loved one can apply for these programs and become the beneficiary of them.
