3 arrested after youth offender ceremony

By Washington Post editors

Police have arrested three women for fighting after an awards ceremony at City Hall where D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty recognized reformed youth offenders.

Police arrested 18-year-old Grace Ebiasah, 20-year-old Anna Ebiasah and 19-year-old Deanna Morris, all of Southeast D.C., for fighting in a public place. They are accused of fighting after Fenty presented awards at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services event Thursday.

Fenty spokeswoman Mafara Hobson says the mayor was concerned about the safety of the young people attending. No one was seriously injured.

You can take the girl out of the ghetto, but not the ghetto out of the girl. Hood rats.

That just goes to show you what "rehabilitation" means at the DC Dept of Youth Rehabilitation Services: not much.

If these are the best and brightest stowed at DYRS, perhaps the agency should add some beds and prolong the stretches at the "New Beginnings" facility after all.

Of course, given their ages now, these three street urchins now get to stay at the DC Jail. I guess it was a graduation ceremony after all....

"…all of Southeast DC." But could you clarify which neighborhoods, please? Southeast isn't all one place, you know.
