  • Per District policy, Mr. Strickland was given a stern warning, $2,000 cash, vouchers for University of Phoenix vocational courses, and a warm hug.

  • Are they pinning all of those listed robberies on the one guy? I want to get on board with the congratulatory nature of the post, but that seems a bit convenient.

    • So, a person that robs one person won’t rob two, three, four, five, six, or even seven? Maybe it’s good police work and it’s for the courts to figure out. But, hey lets just assume the guilt or corruption of the police. Not that this defendant was at-least ID by the victims, or had DNA at the scene, or had other CCTV coverage. Judges dismiss cases when an officer witness a crime, lets out defendants that are caught with guns, and allows people convicted of gun crimes in DC back on the street with probation. But then the next post of a crime on the 800 block of Jefferson or wherever a shooting happens people will complain about the police. Why are the police on trial? Also, whomever this poster is why every major US city can’t find applicants because the police are the enemy now.

      • yea these poor police, harming community members with impunity, continuing to get paid/keep their pensions, deciding whom to arrest based more on their biases than the law, all while getting to play the victim card and be defended by people like you. cry me a river

  • Busy guy if he did all of these
