WATCH: THIS WHITE COP SHOWED UP To VIOLENT BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD & Did THIS… WOAH!

VIA| This is an amazing sight to see. A white police officer stood in the middle of an African-American crowd and passionately prayed for racial reconciliation.

Senior HPD Officer Barry Curtis is a department liaison to clergy. He prayed for unity and protection over an area where a recent shooting occured.

“We’re here to protect and serve,” Curtis said. “That’s what our job is, and serving is not just going out and patrolling, but praying for the public as well.”

Prayer will change things! See the story behind this Houston Police Department officer praying for members of the Sunnyside community: http://abc13.co/1Tfddls
