Examiner Reports on “Transit Stop Safety Zone”


The Examiner’s Michael Neibauer reports, D.C. Council proposes transit stop ‘safety zone’:

“Citing rising crime in and around District transit stops, D.C. Council members have proposed a new 50-foot “safety zone” where virtually any crime committed would carry extra jail time and civil penalties.

The measure seeks to deter crimes “where we know people are proven to be targets,” said Ward 5 Councilman Harry Thomas Jr., who co-introduced the bill Tuesday with at-large Councilman Michael Brown. Criminals “prey on these persons who go back and forth using our public transportation system,” he said.”

Think this would help deter crime?
