DANA HOUSTON, LimaI would like to send my condolence to the familyof Tarika Wilson, and my thoughts for the family of the officer involved in the recent shooting.This incident has caused undue stress on our community. We must be patient, and let the legal process take its course. I understand the frustration it has caused.Ive followed the news, and attended the meetings at the church and the Civic Center. And I have come to the concussion this is not a racial issue between community members as a whole. There are frustrations stemming from this incident, and experiences with some members of the local law enforcement agencies. My advice is to dont punish the mass, for the actions of a selected few.Its a sad picture when, as of this writing, we only had a few days until Dr. Martin Luther Kings birthday, and you have black membersand leaders marching like the oldblack revolutionary period in America. What happened to theways of King and the reason he died? If youfeel you need to march, do it his way.We, as African-Americans, have takenmany steps forward, but then it appears we take many steps backward because of the actions of a few.I agree there needs to be changes in the community in some areas. Those who dont live in Lima, andtruly dont know what goes on here, really dont need to be writing, making comments about issuesthey know nothing about.The Rev. Bob Horton is right: There is a group within the black community (and the non-black) rushing to judgment. The only ones that truly know what happen that day, are all the individuals in that home during the raid. For all others, be patient.
