"And I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel

Blackfoot Police Department did not reveal a lot of information about the home invasion/robbery that took place about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 21.
"We are being very careful what information we are releasing," said Blackfoot Police Capt. Kurt Asmus. "There is certain information that only the victims, police and suspect would know."
The burglary was on Fullmer Lane.
The suspect made contact with the family as they returned home, the police report stated. The couple and their pre-school children were ordered into a room at gunpoint and the suspect demanded money.
At the Bingham Crisis Center there is a wall filled with photos, coined "The wall of shame" by the Center staff. It features grim faces of those found guilty of sexual and domestic abuse stare unkindly from unblinking eyes. There are far too many faces than necessary for Bingham County and a stark reminder that Idaho is not exempt from the chilling statistics.
