Birmingham’s chief of police wants:
to get local churches, mosques and temples involved in rebuilding the community by supporting mentoring programs, clean-ups, neighborhood revitalization and programs to help former inmates successfully return to society.
Which is actually a pretty good idea. I am struck, however, by the name: The Nehemiah Project. Didn’t Nehemiah build a wall? Yes, the story mentions it — he built the walls of Jerusalem. Does Chief Nunn see Birmingham as one big gated community now?
