I’m a resident of Adams Morgan and my fiance is a resident in Columbia Heights so were are particularly aware of the crime that takes place in Ward 1. Reading all of the recent posts on the increased criminal activity, shootings, pipe violence, etc has lead me to think of options outside of just complaining on POP and other list serves. I highly doubt the thugs that are doing these atrocities read POP to see how enraged the communities are. Police presence has done little to combat the issue.
Therefore, I think it’s come a time where there needs to be active community presence via a “Operation Take Back the Streets” or “People of Columbia Heights March for Nonviolence” rally or parade up/down 14th street across to Sherman Ave or Georgia Ave or similar layout. This would be a show of visual nonviolent force that the residents are sick and tired of crime/violence in our community.
Could we post to gauge interest or peoples thoughts?”
