“Dear PoPville,

At 6:30 tonight [Thursday] I was walking my dog coming up Euclid towards 13th. I heard a guy shouting “stop stop!” Then I see a white guy, medium height run across 13th in the middle of traffic and then I see there is a gangly person in a black hoodie and sweats that he is chasing waving a phone at the guy who then shouts “stop stop” again and they continued on Euclid street toward 14th. I called 911 and the police actually said they found a kid who matched my description. They called me back because they couldn’t find the man who was chasing the hooded person. So if one of your readers, male, wearing a navy suit and checked shirt, had their phone stolen near Euclid and 13th, they should contact the MPD if they haven’t yet, because they have my witness statement and they might have a suspect for him to identify.”

“Looks like someone vandalized the Black Lives Matter sign at 16th and Columbia. Literally whitewashed the “black” out.”

We are DC and we know that Black Lives Matter despite petty vandalism. In spite of petty vandalism. In fact I’m glad this opportunity has risen to reaffirm the fact that Black Lives Matter and the movement is real and not going anywhere despite the fractures and hurdles that still must be overcome.

“Dear PoPville,

This one is from Friday 2/10 at 1:28pm near 10th & Spring NW. He seems to be fairly inebriated (stairs are hard!) and misses the pretty obvious fact that we have camera in plain view but thinks ahead enough to wrap the box up in an extra coat to hide it as he walks away. The box contained a present from a family member that was largely sentimental and not really of significant monetary value so that’s tough news since we know the chances of recovery are super slim. I’ve reported it to MPD via the online reporting form anyhow and thought I’d send it your way, too….”
