For many people this is a time for joy and celebration. However, with the shorter days and with people doing their holiday shopping, it is also the time of year that the likelihood of women being assaulted or rob increases. This year a Durham NC minister is doing something about it.
Community activist, Minister Paul Scott founder of the Messianic Afrikan Nation ministry is calling on men to become part of the "Protect -a -Sista Service." Scott is asking that the men in Durham "deputize" themselves to make sure that women at the mall, parking lots, on the bus, etc get to their destinations safely.
"We must do about job of protecting our women than the secret service does protecting President Obama," says Scott.
Scott also says that in the wake of police shootings, such as that of Michael Brown in Ferguson MO, the African American community must begin to patrol their own communities and protect women from police brutality as well.
"Our women must be protected, whether the person is wearing a bandanna or a badge," says Scott
