I live in a really dull neighborhood--32 years here and no excitement like this at all. Funny thing about the article--no mention of the ethnicity of the party's attendees and no pictures. Now, why could that be?? Maybe all the film got lost.

They looked at the film and it was too dark to use.

DC is my second home, worked there for more than 40 years. Just retired a few months ago after being laid off. I have to go to Dupont Circle for a dentist appointment soon and I can’t believe I’m nervous to go into my beloved city.

A few years back, we had a thing across the street involving two deputy sheriffs and three drunk people in a car with a dog. I think they eventually decided that there wasn’t anything to be done, since the car was on the curb and the dog was obviously having fun.

” ... outdoor cookout that drew hundreds of people.”

Masks? I’m guessing those rules don’t apply.

Beloved? What exactly is there to “love” about the swamp?

Newsflash:
Anyone knowing DC knows that SE is primarily black. Just sayin’.
___________
From da mayor:
‘“Sadly, several people who have no regard for human life open fire at what had been ... people together enjoying themselves,” Bowser said.

The mayor said the gathering was illegal on a number of levels.

“It is illegal to drink on the street in the District of Columbia; it is illegal to smoke marijuana on the street in the District of Columbia. It is illegal to be in a gathering of more than 50 – all of those things are not good,” she said. “And, sadly, when you put illegal guns in the hands of people willing to use them, it means some person could lose her life or some people could lose their lives.”’
____________
This is pathetic. She is pathetic. Either she is a puppet or incompetent. She could have stopped this street festival or heavily controlled it through the police. Instead, she hides behind “the law”.

In the video police were doing CPR on a woman in a dress. Might have been the officer, off duty or undercover? I wonder if the officer was the target as she was the only one killed.

How does she know the gun was illegal? And who is the “you” that put the gun in someone’s hands?
