    The Youth Act will prevent them from serving any real time.

      And even if it did, Brianne Nadeau would quickly bail them out. Brianne is to safety (a quality of life issue) as Scott Pruitt is to environmental protection. Not even in the same ballpark.

        Agree. Brianne Nadeua literally thinks this was an accident. Or he didn’t know what he was doing. Wonder if the victim would agree? She is soft on crime. Bottom line. Wish someone would challenge her as crime has gotten much worse under her watch in her ward.

    why do people so regularly post such obvious disdain for the youth act, ‘catch and release’ rules, etc., in DC, but do NOTHING about it? seems like there’s a new protest every day for something Trump (or Pence) might have said or did, but NOTHING ever for the terrible things that criminals get away with in our city. that’s a march/protest that might actually illicit change
