Yesterday the body of a ten year old girl, Sheila was discovered in a plastic bag in San Miguel and the locals went ballistic, throwing stones and attacking the police, some of whom had to withdraw from the area.
It transpires today that the main suspects are her aunt and aunt's husband (not the uncle who was temporarily detained due to his distraught condition) who confessed to having been on drugs and alcohol the night before and don't know what happened. They can't remember, they said.
But my question is, is right to attack the police in this way, who do an unenviable job in these very poor areas?
Should the police be blamed for the little girl's death?
