GNN -- BETAZED. A city-wide protest turned into a massive scale riot this morning as feelings of rage and terror ran rampant through the city of Dalaria. City authorities have called on the local police to quell the riots, however their extra efforts to do so have only served to anger the public even more. As of early in the afternoon, eighty-two Betazoids have been killed and hundreds more have been wounded or severely injured from street rioting. Local governmental officials have called upon Starfleet to provide additional assistance in calming the riots. According to leaders within Starfleet operations, with the already stretched thin forces protecting the planet itself from possible attack, it is unlikely that much more assistance can be given to local Betazoidan police without severely hindering planetary defense measures.
