  Four members of the Independent News Hour attended the Town of Wyoming monthy meeting in Wyoming Delaware on Monday June 3 at 7:30 p.m. EST at the Wyoming town hall annex located on railroad avenue in Wyoming Delaware. 

  We were there to support Wyoming resident Sherene Lindo. Ms. Lindo served honorably in the United States Air Force, is a registered nurse, and is currently also studying to be a paralegal. 

  Since 2004 there has been a stream of complaints involving her next door neighbor apparently racially motivated. On Sunday June 19, 2012 her neighbor shot her dog, "Hemi" who had somehow gotten out of the fenced back yard with two other dogs and allegedly attacked a cat. 

   Title 9 of the Delaware State Code is fairly specific about the circumstances a dog may be shot under and a cat isn't justification to shoot a dog. There is also the question of how the three dogs got out of the yard, the Independent News Hour team went on site and inspected the fence, it was solid and the gates in excellent condition. 

  So far no charges have been filed against the neighbor, even though this is but one incident in a nine year period of harassment the mayor insists this isn't a 'town matter'. We tend to disagree. 

  Do we have 1963 style disparity in 2013 Delaware? That may be the case. Join us for a compelling discussion. Call in's welcome.
