It was pretty scary watching police helicopter, SWAT officers with guns drawn & a police dog march down our street! I was relived to see them take the young man into custody.

Now you don't know if they had anything to do with criminals.

It is unkind to jump to judgement, and to mention her business in this context. If you had a home office wouldn't you want your business to be innocent until the facts were known? Would you want your neighbors to assume that you had done wrong, and that no-one should use your business?

It is cruel to affect her abiliy to work by bringing her business into it on the basis of no facts.

Unless the guy they arrested forced his way into the house, I don't think it is prudent to send kids to a camp at a home where police had to raid.
