    Amazing – somebody stabbed and no comments — it has gotten to be the “new normal”.

    Nothing good happens on U street after midnight. Better to go home and avoid the trip to the hospital.

      “new normal”?
      what are you talking about? the “new normal” is that more and more crimes get reported. that’s the new normal. used to be that no news source would even touch an early morning stabbing in dc.
      and that there were arrests?thankfully, that’s becoming a new normal also.
      but when there’s no context, and little info, whats to comment on?

      and i pretty certain POP doesn’t get a slew of comments of the weekend.
      reserve your judgement.

        “New normal”? There it’s exactly nothing new about stabbings and shootings occurring in this immediate area. I used to live a block from here but quickly realized I was cutting a couple decades off my life expectancy and moved.

      most readers of this blog are probably home for the holidays at the moment. weekend posts rarely get comments anyway. that said, agree that the east part of u street can be dangerous late at night.
