A new 80-page report purports to educate Black parents on how best to protect their children from violence in the wake of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin and the recent acquittal of George Zimmerman, his admitted killer.

Kenneth Love, a former police officer, prison and juvenile correctional officer, U. S. Army sergeant, and former regional director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, said he used his diverse experience to create the report, which is the latest of several safety and security reports he has published for children and females.

“In addition to my work in law enforcement, as a father myself, I readily understand what parents and, particularly, African-American parents are currently experiencing, in terms of safety, security, the well-being of their children, and where to turn next, so to speak, as a result of the tragic situation of Trayvon Martin,” Love said in a statement. “This situation could not have hit closer to home for parents of teenage boys. And, I am confident that this report will provide an enormous amount of advice, tips, and suggestions most parents, who have not been involved in law enforcement or the penal system, will appreciate.”

The report, Save Our Black/African American Children, provides information on how to best protect African-American children from potential killers and abductors.

It also contains a number of safety and security informational websites, contact numbers, and numerous articles by guest authors. It also includes bonus safety and self-protection articles specifically for African-American females as well as a link to a brief video on child abduction and kidnapping.

“Make NO mistake…our Black/African American children are being targeted directly and are at serious risk,” Love said on his promotional website about his reasons for writing the report. “Not at risk of being hurt or killed by some foreign terrorists in a faraway unfamiliar land, but by individuals who are supposed to be their fellow citizens…the domestic terrorists who reside in their own country.”
