Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones compares the differing opinions on law enforcement of William Celester (Deputy Superintendent, Boston Police Department) and Reverend Graylan Ellis-Hagler (Church of the United Community). Jones interviews Celester. Celester says that the police are at war with drug addicts and gang members in the neighborhood. Celester says that some of these individuals need to be scared of police. Celester says that police officers are not well equipped to serve as mentors. Jones reports that Ellis-Hagler and others believe that a new approach is necessary. Jones notes that Ellis-Hagler recommends that police academy graduates serve as mentors to community youth. Jones' report includes footage of Hagler talking about his plan on December 15, 1989. Jones notes that Ellis-Hagler and his supporters see prevention as an effective weapon against drugs and violence. Jones' report includes footage of police officers making arrests, footage of Ellis-Hagler with a group of men at the Church of the United Community, and footage of Celester at a community meeting. This tape includes additional footage of Celester and police officers at police headquarters.
