  • Oh DC and your liberal loitering laws. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked down that stretch at night and been threatened by a group of dudes just hanging out on the street.

    Ya, there is a ton of booze infused arguments but most of the trouble happens from people who never patronize a single establishment

  • NBC4 reported this morning that it happened on the grounds of Marie Reed Rec center? True?

    • The NBC4 report I saw around 8 am said near Marie Reed, not on the grounds. So, maybe they got different info later?

  • Marie Reed is in the 2200 block and the MPD statement said the victims were found inside an establishment.

  • So, what place was this?

    • 2300 18th Street is The Madrid apartment building. Don’t know if that means it happened in an apartment, the lobby, or in some other business in that general area.
