    The thugs are working overtime this month… maybe we won’t beat last year’s homicide count after all. Sigh.

      did someone forget to tell them it’s MONDAY?

    • Pretty confident we’ll beat last year’s homicide count of 132. We’re currently at 108 with only 11 days left in the year, so unless we have a sudden outbreak of violence not seen in DC in a few years we’ll come in around 110-115 for the year.

  • Merry Christmas you filthy animal

    I’m surprised about this. I ride through this area all the time. It’s pretty quiet residential.

    From MPD:

    “Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating the fatal shooting which occurred in the 1000 block of Taylor Street, NE.

    On Monday, December 19, 2011, at approximately 5:54 pm units from the Fourth District responded to a call for a shooting in the 1000 block of Taylor Street, NE. Upon arrival, they located the victim, an adult male, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel responded to the scene and transported the victim to local area hospital. The victim later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

    The decedent is identified as 19-year-old Derrick Ragland of Northwest, Washington DC.”

  • Is it just me, or have there been more shootings/stabbings this side of the Anacostia than across it?

      Admittedly, I don’t cover crime as much on that side of the river. I need to do a better job. This also happened last night:

      “7D is working a double shooting in the 3400blk of 22nd St. SE, 2 juveniles, avoid the area no lookout information // 5020”
