Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

On Friday, I was leaving work and walking to my car, parked on V Street NW between 11th and 12th. Typical scene– dog walkers, middle schoolers heading home, and so on. I got into my car and as I leaned out to close the door, one of the middle school girls slammed my door. At first I thought she was trying to show off in front of her friends, but soon those friends started kicking my car and abruptly ran off. I unsuccessfully tried to follow them, and I didn’t get a look at their uniforms to identify what school they were coming from. There was no damage to the car, but I’d really love to know if others in the U Street/Shaw area are experiencing similar situations so that we can open up a discussion on how to address the issue of teenage violence towards adults.”
