From MPD:

“On 8/12/11, at 1947 hours a complainant filed a bias motivated threats report with the 1st district CCN# 117-425.

The complainant was in the 1300 blk of D St NE washing the front porch of his residence when the suspect exited her residence and yelled a hate slur. The suspect is the complainant’s neighbor.

On 08/20/11, First District Officers received a radio run for a second sighting, The suspect was stopped by MPD and arrested on a second sighting for Felony Threats.”


“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch have announced that an arrest has been made in the fatal shooting of 27 year-old Rashid Paul and 28 year-old D’Angelo Thompson.

On Sunday, January 23, 2011, at approximately 7:00 pm, units from the Fourth District responded to the 6000 block of New Hampshire Avenue, NE, for the sounds of gunshots. Upon their arrival, officers canvassed the area and located two victims inside a vehicle in the 100 block of Peabody Street, NE. Personnel from DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and determined neither victim had any signs consistent with life. Subsequently, both victims were pronounced dead by a member of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. A crime scene was located in the 200 block of Peabody Street, NE.

On Monday, August 22, 2011, members from the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested 24 year-old Sergio Waynes of Silver Spring Maryland, pursuant to a DC Superior Court warrant charging him with Carrying a Pistol without a License (CPWL) in an unrelated case. Subsequently, at 4:45 am, he was charged by the Homicide Branch for First Degree Murder while Armed in the double homicide.”

  • Oh no, not hate speech!

    Why do you do this to us POP?

  • what exactly are “felony threats”?

  • Obviously, there are details we’re missing, but is it now against the law to be mean?
    (Disregard this comment is there was indeed some kind of threat of physical violence made!)

  • Did you guys grow up in the woods? Felony threats are things like “I’m going to kill you”.

    If someone said that to me, I’d assume the person was serious and shoot the person before they had a chance to kill me when I was distracted or defenseless.

    So having a “police force”, here in America, means that I don’t have to go and actually kill someone to protect myself.

    • Well, things would be better in the libertarian paradise that is Somalia, fer shur.

      • You need to learn the difference between “libertarian paradise” and anarchy. Somalia is nothing short of anarchy.

        Fortunately for you, ignorant speech is protected (just like hate speech).

        • I’m pretty sure Somalia / Afghanistan / Hati / Antarctica are in fact “libertarian paradises”. The slogan on their website says; “Maximum Freedom, Minimum Government”.

          • I hope this is a joke; if not, then you clearly have a lot to learn about those countries and even more about libertarianism.

            There’s a difference between minimal government that goes no further than protecting citizens’ rights and property (AKA “libertarian paradise”) and a country with no government where people are murdered or their property is destroyed (AKA anarchy).

            Somalia has no government and is stuck in anarchy where the group with the biggest guns does whatever they want. No one in their right mind associates Afghanistan with freedom and minimal government. Their oppression of women is just one example of how anti-libertarian they are. Haiti is a great example of how corrupt government can ruin a society, and in no way does it it represent a libertarian government. Antarctica has no government and is just a block of territories claimed by different nations.

            You’re welcome to be anti-freedom, but don’t make baseless claims about the opposing viewpoint.

          • Agreed, Libertarianism = Anarchy. I wish more people would see this. I do not take Libertarianism seriously as a philosophy and see it as the biggest political danger to the country. See the sovereign citizen “movement”

          • haha everyone who disagrees with libertarianism is anti-freedom!!!

    • Seems like what the complainant said is that the individual yelled a racial slur (ie, “was mean to me”).
      That it became “Felony Threats” once they had arrested the person is the logic leap that’s got me scratching my head.

      So, what are the missing details, is my question?

      • Maybe it was something like, “Die, you f***ing ******!”?

        I agree that it’s not clear how the hate slur and the felony threat are connected, or if they’re the same thing.

      • Could be racial, could be gender-based, could be sexuality-based, could be psychotic-episode-having-neighbor-based.

    • andy

      trust me, there is hate speech if you grow up in the woods.


      dude who grew up in the woods.

  • So, in the future, would be nice if people from Silver Springs could do their dirty work somewhere other than DC. If you gotta kill two people, how about do it somewhere else. For instance, Silver Springs might be more convenient for you.

  • Nice job closing the Peabody St. homicides. That violence was unusual for the neighborhood. Not surprised the perpetrator was from someplace else.
