The idea of a government program run amok and the nefarious characters it engenders lies squarely with the Social Security Administration. Deborah Vaughn, from Smyrna, Delaware, defrauded the United States Government in the total of at least $200,000 after she failed to report the passing of her mother-in-law and collected the monthly deposits. According to Delaware Online, Vaughn received a sentence of a year and a half in prison. And for what? Did she figure that she wouldn’t get caught? The Social Security Administration can make monsters like Vaughn. But the whole program can be undone.
With the spate of mass shootings in the United States over the past decade, the First State got a false alarm that seemed all too real to staff and students. The Delaware State University campus received a lock down notice after text messages proclaiming that a shooter or shooters would be on the premises. Multiple police agencies swept the campus in search of a gunman but found no weapons, reported no injuries or fatalities, or anything suspicious. What all this spells is that fear is still a token of lowlifes.
As Wilmington police investigate what looks like yet another shooting in the city sometimes called “Killmington, Hellaware,” it is easy to say that the firearm discharges are due to a spat, turf war, or drug deal gone wrong. The root of all of this madness is irrationalism. Unthinking factions roam the streets, filled with emotion and armed to the teeth. With just a minor exchange of words in a disagreement or maybe a misunderstanding, the guns are drawn. Only in a city as small as Wilmington, in a state as small as Delaware are these cases amplified due to the relatively low number of citizens who occupy the First State in the Union, and the “Place to be Somebody.”
Millsoboro, Delaware is not without its bizarre cases. Levi D. Stilwell felt the metal bracelets of the law for driving under the influence. The tip came that he became tipsy through a call from a McDonald’s restaurant. Stilwell berated a patron at the fast food establishment. His “multiple signs of impairment,” the police said allowed them to determine that Stilwell could incur his seventh DUI. The idea of yelling at someone who might’ve been trying to get the buy-one-get-one for a dollar deal from Mickey D’s is horrendous. In these United States of America, you ought to be able to enter into a specific establishment and order anything that you want, regardless of what other customers might say to you.
Mystery swirls around the city of Smyrna, Delaware. The uncertainty concerns the remains of a young child discovered on Little Lass Fields, adjacent to Smyrna Middle School. The discovery has rattled the community that has a few answers, but still other questions abound. If the child came from another location and was left in the fields, or if he or she wandered to their final resting place are but a few details that the Smyrna Police department would like to make clear.
The tiny First State has big problems. While Delaware Online reports that the number of shootings and victims and deaths has been down since the year 2017, it is still a major concern for law enforcement officials. One woman and three men received rounds just before the weekend in the State of Delaware. There are no suspects in any of the cases. This is why snitching is so crucial. Somebody knows something. There is no way that exactly zero individuals saw nothing. The power of snitching should lead these people to aid the police in doing a job that entails the most legitimacy. They’re not concerned with drugs. They’re not concerned with violating rights-respecting individuals. The police are trying to do their job that is completely in line with rights.
