This story is extremely powerful. God is good.
As Jameel McGee was buying milk and groceries for his brand new baby boy, an Officer steps in to change and tie their lives forever.
A true story of racial reconciliation and radical forgiveness. A crooked cop, an innocent man, and an unlikely journey of forgiveness and friendship. Racial tensions had long simmered in Benton Harbor, a small city on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan, before the day a white narcotics officer, more focused on arrests than justice, set his sights on an innocent black man. But when Officer Andrew Collins framed Jameel McGee for possession of crack cocaine, the surprising result was not a race riot, but a transformative journey for both men.
