“Dear PoPville,

I was looking at condos on Saturday afternoon in Bloomingdale (near Dunbar) when a car raced past and slammed into a house [1st and Bates St, NW] while trying to make a left turn. Three kids jumped out of the car and went running into the neighborhood. What was really strange was that there were two cop cars following them but the cops stopped before reaching them and then turned away from the direction the kids ran in – and didn’t stop to see if anyone got hurt by the car slamming into the house. Another cop showed up awhile later but it seemed really strange the cops wouldn’t do anything while they were on the scene. Do you have any insight?”
