I was at the Columbia Heights metro the other day and witnessed a few guys sitting out in the open clearly drinking liquor and beer right outside the busy metro in broad daylight. The more shocking thing is that there were police officers standing no more than 30 feet away. This occurs with more frequency and an apparent lack of fear for consequences all along fairly busy sections of Georgia Avenue outside liquor stores and sometimes just steps from the police sub-station on Park Road. They don’t even feel the need to use a Solo Cup (which is a joke but is a mild attempt to hide it).
I completely understand the challenges and ‘real’ crimes that the police have to deal with, but it seems that this low level of enforcement just breads larger problems where folks don’t think twice about breaking the law. Am I missing something here?”
