“Dear PoPville,

I was in Georgetown Saturday night in front of Chinese Disco (the former George) and there was a woman who was drunk enough to be incapacitated. There were two police officers present in front of the bar and rather than see if she was okay or call a paramedic (she was literally incapacitated) they had the bouncer call an uber and then had the bouncer carry her lifeless body over his shoulder into the uber and send her “home”. It was incredibly offensive and I felt incredibly ashamed at the police officers for not doing more to care for the girl – she was literally lifeless. Is there anyone in the DCPD that I can report those officers’ conduct to?”

Terminating a lease in the District

“First-time DC renter here, moved from another city (where I rented and owned) so I’m trying to get some clarity.

We started a lease in late December 2013. That term ended on December 31, 2014. Our landlord emailed us to tell us that the lease was now month-to-month and we needed to give 30 days’ notice.

We’ve rented another place. We want to move out on August 15. On July 1, we sent a letter to our landlord telling them we were ending the lease. Landlord responded about two weeks later saying that we couldn’t end the lease in the middle of the month, and that we had to stay until the end of the month. The lease is silent on this point.

DC Tenant Survival Guide and DC Code seem to say all we have to do is give 30 days’ notice; we gave way more than that.

Am I missing something? What remedies do we have?”
