    Hip-hop artist the Game urged gang members from across Southern California on Sunday to stop the violence in the midst of the national focus on the recent police shootings of African-American men.

    The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, told the hundreds gathered for a town-hall style meeting at a South Los Angeles community center that he was pushing a positive message because one day, he hopes his daughter will be able to walk the streets “a little safer.”

    “Your life should mean more to you,” he told the crowd. “Your life should mean more to you than what you’re showing.”

    Minister Tony Muhammad, who helped organize the event, said it’s time for the black community to unite for peace.

    In an Instagram post before the meeting, Game extended his invitation “to all CRIPS, BLOODS, ESE's & all other gang members, major figures & GANG LEADERS from every hood in our city as well as the surrounding cities to our meeting,” the rapper wrote in an Instagram post.

    The event, billed “Time To Unite: United Hoods + Gangs Nation,” was supported by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, according to advertisements. It was held at a Church of Scientology center in the Vermont Knolls neighborhood. Rapper Snoop Dogg, who was billed as a co-host of the event, did not attend.

    Maybe they're eyeing the COS billions as an easy takeover heist.
    After all, if a dwarf could pull it off, it won't be that difficult.
    Just position oneself to be in the right place at the right time...
    They would know with certainty that he can't live forever and his billion year contract is a joke.
    If not for the money why else would they be there, for touch assists?

    I want to make something clear. I don't think there is anything wrong with what is described in the OP. Even at my most cynical and critical, I think the idea that the Church of Scientology and/or Nation of Islam are trying to unite the gangs for some nefarious purpose, to create an army, to have enforcers, etc., is paranoid, tinfoil hat, non-falsifiable conspiracy nuttery.

    No, what the Church of Scientology is doing is far more significant, and (at least from the perspective of critics of Scientology) far more dangerous. The Church of Scientology is intelligently playing the long game. (This is similar to what I said in the thread on the Church of Scientology's opposition to Kate's law.) The Church of Scientology is investing in reputational capital, creating goodwill and forging alliances -- in this case not primarily with the gangs or the Nation of Islam (which is already in its pocket), but with the LAPD and elected officials. In addition, the Church of Scientology is getting good press out of this. When is that last time anyone could say that??

    I agree. I don't expect the warm fuzzy feelings to last too long though.

    (And where are the BLM reps?)

    I had hoped for better from LA Sheriff Baca's replacement than mimicking Baca's blind promotion of NOI and Scientology.

    (Beck is not Baca's replacement as CommunicatorIC pointed out in his post below, he is LA City Police Chief not LA County Sheriff.)

    Has Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck taken over Baca's job of being a cult shill for NOI and Scientology?

    There's nothing wrong with groups who seem to have little in common coming together to talk about peace. Seems harmless. Gives brownie points to all. And no doubt DM will stand up at the next meeting and try to give all the credit to the glorious Tek for defusing a volatile situation....whether the cult had anything to do with it other than providing the venue.

    The rapper The Game has a new Instagram post up. It is very significant that the Bloods - Crips 2016 Peace Treaty and Ceasefire Agreement dated July 17, 2016 lists as its sponsors the Church of Scientology, The Way to Happiness Foundation and United in Peace Foundation (a front group of the Way to Happiness front group), as well as the Nation of Islam.

    Seriously, don't kid yourself about the significance of this or try to minimize it to make yourself feel better. This is important.

    Los Angeles City Police Department Chief Charlie Beck is not the replacement for former Los Angeles County Sheriff Baca. The Los Angeles County Sheriff is now Jim McDonnell.

    It's commendable that any gang member would sign a pledge to non-violence and respect. That's awesome. What remains to be seen is how many gang members will sign it. Also what is your take on why/how this is so significant or important?

    Would need more info re: how many will sign and, even IF signed, follow the pledge, and how will that translate to an improvement in gang crime statistics? That remains to be seen.
