  • Any statement from Manlapaz on WTF is going on in Petworth? Or should we just assume gang / drug related violence until told otherwise.

  • what’s going on here?!?!?!?

    is it the weather? i swear as soon as it started getting nice outside DC alerts started blowing up…

  • It’s just an endless loop in this neighborhood; several weeks of daily report of violence, followed by a few arrests, then quiet a for 2-6 months, repeat. MPD is clearly unwilling or unable to devout the resources necessary to do anything about. It’s very frustrating and makes me have to consider moving out of my house (which I really like and don’t want to leave) in the near future.

    • If your response to violence in your neighborhood is just moving instead of social engagement then you really have shallow roots to the community. If you care about your community call your council member, call your at-large council members, get to know your law enforcement and never let apathy be your default. As DC this city is much safer than it was when i was a kid and by the number as safe as it was in the late 60’s early 70’s.

      • Or perhaps this person has deep roots to their family and doesn’t feel like putting their lives in harms way while we try to solve the gang problem without the help of the police mayor?

        We do not have a council member. And we don’t live in all of DC, just this part. I don’t know about Mike, but I wasn’t alive in the late 60’s or early 70’s. This is the worst its been here in recent memory.
