  • It’s a testament to our Constitution and our Cultural Norms. People exercising their right to bear arms, in DC, every week. And seeming total tolerance of the notion that murder is a normal thing to expect, on the streets of DC. Almost murder as liberty, ones’ sacred right. Or perhaps liberty really means you have the right to possess bullets with intent. Whatever way, our glory as “Homicide Streets NE DC” sucks big time.

  • Accidents happen…

    Not surprising. I go through this area all the time on the way home from H St and downtown. Lots of shady looking characters hanging out in front of all three of the convenience stores near that intersection. Probably a drug deal gone sour or something. They probably knew each other.
