Cell phones used for good

Cell phones, arguably, replace handguns. Some students arrange drug deals through them. Many students, given the opportunity, would prevent crime through cell phones. Students not only may be educated to identify a probable drug deal, but they also may be educated to communicate through a network, much like a prayer list, in a way that will prevent other crimes such as rape…

Are male students more likely than female students to arrange drug deals? As a community, we become stronger by facing our weaknesses with both education and experience; then we act more wisely.

Not only Radio Shack, but also the local amateur radio club may have a cell phone/walkie talkie donation program to prevent rape, to prevent domestic violence and to protect our community as a whole.
