Checking in with Isiah Johnson, Change takes time

This is a disorder I have now of being paranoid. I’m paranoid. When it gets nighttime I get paranoid, only in Milwaukee though.”

24 year old Isiah Johnson survived two shootings in one year. He asked his church, All Peoples Church, for help. Then the parishioners there formed a men’s group for the purpose of keeping Isiah safe. This group has been meeting regularly. This week we check in with him to see how it’s going.
