Thoughts on my Walk Home From the Metro

Have you seen the cop car that has been parked outside the metro for a while around 6 o’clock on New Hampshire Ave. (By the by, the car was gone by 7:15 tonight.) I guess it is in response to the recent criminal activity. So, my concern is that the cops are just sitting in the car. They are certainly visible. But wouldn’t it be better if the car was parked there but they got out of the car and walked up and down New Hampshire. They two cops sitting in the car looked bored out of their minds. As I imagine I would be too. Is the car parked outside the metro in and of itself enough of a deterrent to hinder crime up and down New Hampshire Ave.? I feel like people complained and the powers that be said “alright, park a car outside the metro.” Do you think this is simply pandering? Does it make you feel safer?
