It started with a knock at the door in the middle of the day on Elm Street in Northwest. The two students answered and came face to face with two armed robbers. One had a gun and the other had a taser.

“The suspects had a taser with them and they tasered both the occupants in the premises,” said Inspector Angel Medina of D.C. Police.

Police say the suspects stole laptops, cell phones, shoes and $4,000 in cash stashed in a shoebox in the middle of the living room floor.

This is disturbing on many many levels. Getting tasered. Being robbed at home, etc. But let me throw a PoP PSA out there, and I’m not being glib or insensitive, I’m being completely serious – never keep thousands of dollars of cash in your house. Ever.
