“On Sunday January 8, 2017 at 4 pm at Michigan Park Christian Church, 1600 Taylor Street, NE (the corner of S. Dakota and Taylor, NE) leaders of the Interfaith community will come together to affirm “Love Over Hate: A Season of Resistance.” This service and rally is in direct response to the divisiveness and rancor that has been offered in the current political climate in the nation. The Clergy leading this call to resistance are clear that it doesn’t have to do with a candidate winning or losing, but the fact that a sacred social covenant has been broken where those who are considered “Other” have been castigated, threatened, and endangered.

“Dear PoPville,

Michigan Park/Fort Totten residents: beware of the screaming fox and protect your small dogs!
I live in North Michigan Park just behind the Fort Totten Metro. Apparently we have a neighborhood fox, a screaming fox, that frequents my block. A few nights ago around 1:00 am, my husband and I heard what we thought was a woman screaming, and looked out the window to see a red fox chasing a small dog down the sidewalk. My husband ran outside to find the fox standing a few feet from the small dog who was desperately trying to get back into his yard under the fence. My husband yelled and charged at the fox and it ran off, but the dog did appear a little roughed up. The dog’s owner eventually came outside due to the dog’s yelping, and we explained what we saw.

I thought that incident would teach the neighbor not to let her dog out late at night by itself, but again, last night at 2:00 am, I was woken up by the screaming noise of the fox followed by a small dog crying. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I came home from work today to find the attached flyer stuck in my mailbox. Looks like the shots I (and at least one other commenter) heard were not at 8th and Emerson, but around the corner on the 700 block of Delafield, NE.

Sad that there was damage, and terrifying that the bullets entered people’s homes. When someone asked about the 8th and Emerson shooting on the 4D listserv, an officer said that they responded and found nothing. Seems they were looking on the wrong block.

I hope that the person who made the flyer sees this and knows that some of us did call, and I hope MPD figures out what’s going on and arrests whomever is behind it.”

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve lived on the 5000 block of 8th St NE (near South Dakota, not far from Fort Totten) for 2.5 years. The first two years were very quiet, but recently there’s been something going on near 8th and Emerson. After a 5 pm assault/ armed robbery and then some nighttime gunfire a few months ago, I was told that the people responsible had been arrested and the issues should stop. Then, on Friday night, I was awakened by several bursts of gunfire again. I called 911, cops canvassed and found nothing.

I’ve lived and worked and volunteered in DC since 1993, much of it in neighborhoods on or just beyond the edge of gentrification. I’ve coped with the attendant crime by not walking around after dark, being nice to my neighbors, and hanging out on my porch a lot so people know me. I’ve had bikes stolen, and cars, and two burglaries. I’ve called 911 dozens and dozens of times. (more…)
