Rounds flew once again in the streets of Wilmington, Delaware. A 25-year-old man received medical attention based on his bullet wounds. It is no secret that Wilmington is a tiny hotbed compared to Philadelphia and New York City for these types of cases. It barely registers on the map as a blip. But the just over 70,000 residents have either grown weary or apathetic to the news of yet another shooting in the 21 incidents which have occurred already in 2020.
The madness continues. A man committed an armed robbery of two people and stole their car at gunpoint in Lincoln, Delaware. Where is the rationality? Where is the selfishness? If the suspect had thought through his actions and considered his own short-term and long-term self-interest, then he would’ve never decided to go against the letter of the law an morality.
A Dover, Delaware man has been charged with first degree murder of his child’s mother. A second look at that sentence may not hold enough information but it says a great deal. For a murder in the first degree, that could mean a minimum of twenty-five years in prison or life in Delaware. The irrationalism involved in the case is evident. Emotion before thought led this man to take this woman from her child and other children under her care.
When rappers travel outside of the United States, things can get dicey. Snoop Dogg, for instance, was for a time banned from Heathrow Airport in London. The ban has since been lifted. Now, with Chief Keef’s cuffs locked on wrists in Mexico, it appears that the hip hop star has seen the wheels of justice spin out of his favor.
The coronavirus may be the top story for the coming days and weeks, but that disease shouldn’t overshadow murder cases. Bay Area rapper A-Wax has been charged with homicide for a case that allegedly, and strangely, dates back twenty years ago. Deputy district attorney Jen Tompkins dispelled this as a fallacy and said that the crime took place recently. As investigators prepare an airtight case, A-Wax has been taken into custody where authorities found firearms and plenty of ammunition. This all stemmed from a weapons charge that seems to be unrelated to the homicide.
