The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

The one I won't cover

Regardless of the fact that it's my hometown- there is a current case going on that I won't be covering. Not that I don't have thoughts on it, and not that I'm going out of my way avoiding the chance to express those thoughts... just that I don't see the point in jumping in a boiling pot before the soup has time to cool.

Last Friday night, Lima police raided a home after investigating drug related crimes. 8 people where in the home, including the suspect. The remaining people in the home where a 26 year old woman, and her six children.

During the raid, police shot and killed the woman, Tarika Wilson and also shot and injured a one year old child. The investigation into the shooting continues, and the drug suspect has been arrested, charged and is currently awaiting a hearing.
