Criminal Activity Persists in Ward 1 Over Weekend.

I guess these days its 2 steps forward, 1 step back. Violence and Crime seemed to be throughout Ward 1 this weekend. From the fatal shooting in Adams Morgan at 3 a.m. on Saturday in which two MPD officers were wounded to a  fatal shooting in Columbia Heights and shooting elsewhere in the the city, guns dominated the news this weekend.

Council member Graham, Mayor Fenty, and Chief Lanier have their hands full, and I’m not going to be surprised to see increased police presences throughout the Ward.

Parkview Recreation CenterCloser to home — at least for me — they have also had their hands full with the Park View Recreation Center. Drug deals, loitering, alcohol consumption, and even sex, are all still common activities there each and every Friday/Saturday night. A call to the police this weekend received no response.

Graham, Fenty, Lanier and others have been made aware of this unacceptable response and are now focusing on this den of inequity as well.
