“Dear PoPville,

I’m sure that you have read about the deal that Dan Snyder/the NFL is trying to jam through Congress to set up a new Redskins stadium at the RFK location. Charles Allen, Ward 6 Councilman, has started a petition for those who oppose such a move and any DC taxpayer money being used to fund such a stadium. Any chance you would post a link to the petition for those who might also be interested? Just FYI, I’m not affiliated in any way with his office — just a very concerned citizen who might just give up all hope on this city if Mayor Bowser throws away millions of my tax dollars to fund a stadium for possibly the worst franchise in all of American sports.

The text of the petition is below. (more…)

From MPD:

“I just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that last night First District Units assisted the Narcotics and Special Investigations Division, Sixth District, and Helicopter Branch with the pursuit a vehicle wanted in multiple robberies. At approximately 2229 hours, the vehicle came into the First District from the East Capitol Street Bridge before ending up in the 1600 block of Massachusetts Ave SE. All four juvenile suspects fled from the vehicle, but were quickly apprehended. The suspects were arrested for at least six (6) robberies, carjackings, and attempt robberies all of which occurred yesterday in the 4th, 5th, and 6th Districts as well as Prince George’s County. Fortunately, no one was injured and no property was damaged during this pursuit and apprehension. Have a great day.”
