“I am alone in the midst of these happy, reasonable voices. All these creatures spend their time explaining, realizing happily that they agree with each other. In Heaven’s name, why is it so important to think the same things all together.”
― Jean-Paul Sartre

A resident wrote on the Hill East Listserv:

“Anyone know what happened on the 700-800 block of Kentucky Ave SE last night around 9 pm?

There were between 4 and 7 cruisers parked for over an hour, plain clothes detectives showed up, and they were searching down the street and even in some people’s yards.”

Another resident responded: “Uber was carjacked.”

MPD confirmed the carjacking: “Armed carjacking occured…there were no injuries.”
