Commuters should be given the option to risk the gunfire before closing the road.

Oh of course they should. But before they're let through, they should sign a waiver saying they won't sue when they get their crazy butts shot off.

Ah, the youth of DC are just misunderstood.

They don't need more lead in the drinking water, just more lead in the head.

This couldn't have been a shooting in DC. Guns are illegal there. Maybe it was 2 cops shooting at each other.
