    Dear Karl, Please explain how the system failed with respect to Elijah Jeremiah Smith, a serial violent youth offender who was released repeatedly back into our community.

    • Alex

      And Antwon Pitt who committed a rape after being released on other violent charges.

      And the Deanwood murder who in a single year (since turning 18) managed to get arrested on 3 simple assaults, an assault on a police officer, several destruction of property crimes and 2 probation revocation charges.

      The list of questions questions for OAG could be pages and pages long.

      • Kingman Park

    Racine has a clear political agenda. However, moving to the left of Bowser on crime isn’t going to help him. People are fed up with the increase in crime in DC. I believe the AG is a big part of the problem. I support social justice, but it can’t be the only solution.
