Why is the NAACP Investigating Creflo Dollar’s Arrest and Law Enforcement?
This is very interesting. We can’t believe the NAACP is in on trying to make sure Creflo Dollar was treated fairly in the arrest last week over the alleged abuse against his 15 year old daughter. We are wondering what is the GA State Conference and Fayette County NAACP really want to accomplish here? Are they really concerned about this megachurch minister or is there a sizable donation for the ‘black’ cause what they are really interested in? Are they looking for a big minister in GA to endorse same sex marriage like many others are doing? Food for thought.
Read below the statements made by them and tell us what you think:
The Georgia State Conference and the Fayette County Branch of the NAACP are launching a probe into the arrest of Atlanta megachurch Pastor Creflo Dollar, who was charged with simple battery last week following an altercation with his 15-year-old daughter.
“Today, many parents in any household have vivid recollections of being firmly disciplined during childhood and can directly reflect on how that discipline made them better adults. In order to ensure fairness, the NAACP wants to make sure that first responders to alleged domestic parent-child dispute calls are skillfully trained to clearly distinguish discipline from child abuse,” said in a statement from the NAACP Georgia State Conference.
The State Conference is seeking information about how Dollar was handled by law enforcement during the arrest to ensure community members aren’t unfairly arrested for disciplining their children.
Fayette County’s NAACP President John E. Jones said in a statement:
“We simply want to make sure that Pastor Dollar is allowed to be a responsible parent and discipline his children.” “Parenting children in this day and time can be very challenging because many children believe that they can call the police at any time to stop any unwanted discipline. Little do they know that this can subject their parent or them to an arrest. Conversely, unruly or undisciplined children could get physically hurt or suffer worse punishment when they act out and come in contact with law enforcement. African-American children suffer the most in this situation.” Source
We will be looking into what result comes to surface on this issue. Stay tuned.
