Louisiana leaders discuss cycle of violence


SHREVEPORT, La. — A community leader who says change starts with a conversation but being proactive is the key.

“Much of what we see in our community. When I grew up you win or lose you live to fight another day now it’s the last man standing, and we are burying the loser of the fight. That’s not just a church conversation. That’s not just a school conversation and those conversations are not happening at home,” said Theron Jackson.

Jackson has a son who is around the age of many of this year’s victims and he pastors a church in the 71109 zip code that’s considered the deadliest in the city. So, he said he’s very invested in finding solutions.
