Editorial: Post on crime in D.C.
In an editorial today, The Post discusses falling crime rates in The District in 2009 -- and then tackles perhaps the most pressing question: How to handle crime in the city's most violent areas?
From the piece:
As welcome as the plunge is, certain neighborhoods -- among them Shaw, Anacostia and Columbia Heights -- continue to bear the brunt of the violence that persists. The legislation sponsored by D.C. Council members Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) and Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) is aimed squarely at giving the law-abiding residents of violence-racked neighborhoods a chance at peace and safety. The bill should be given a prompt and fair hearing to assess the impact of several provisions.
Read the full editorial -- and then let us know what you think.
