Jane Usher Blvd. Healing The Wounds
Wed, May 17, 2017

And while that murder remains unsolved, the wounds caused to Lalin's friends and family also remain unhealed.  The 19 year old - who was not known as a gang member - was killed, possibly because he ventured into hostile territory not far from his home.  Today, Williams told us that community healing takes time…

ACP Chester Williams - Commander, Southside Police
"The area is still tense, people are still hurt, we know that overcoming anger is not an easy thing but we're trying to see how best we can get the help that they need in terms of counselling for those who need counselling to be able to assist them to overcome the hate that they are currently feeling because if we do not assist them to overcome the hate and anger resulting from the death of the young man then more than likely the problem with persist. We went into the area numerous times and we're going back in the area everyday checking with the people to ensure that they are on the right track and whenever we get any information that these is something about to happen, we normally step in and I must say that I am happy that we have developed that relationship that if one side feel threatened by the other they would normally call and we step in before anything would occur."
