Teen shot at D.C. elementary school

By Washington Post editors

An 18-year-old was shot in broad daylight Thursday in the parking lot of Raymond Elementary School at Spring and Rock Creek Church roads in Northwest Washington, Fox 5 reports.

The school is a site for the summer jobs program. It has a recreation center and a playground. Police say the unidentified teenager was in the program at a nearby site and had come looking for his girlfriend and sister during a lunch break. Then a fight broke out.

My humble opinion is the agency that runs this DC Summer Jobs program (DC Dept of Employment Services or DOES) doesn't have the right person on the job managing the agency. He can't make it work. He has to go. But don't take my opinion, see for yourself if these are the kinds of RESULTS that you want representing you:

He just can't make it work. He's got to go. Residents and businesses of the District of Columbia - We can do better! We need open government, and the people need to be informed at every opportunity about what's going on with their government.

Under the Fenty administration, it gets worse and worse. What's next?

I thought the jobs program was supposed to help keep the kids out of trouble. We're told that without this make-work project, we'll have things like kids getting shot. How does this happen? Someone needs to answer. I'm not a supporter of Fenty, but this program has been a patronage disaster under every mayor.
Next thing we'll probably find out is that the kid lives in PG County, but is in the DC jobs program. That would not be surprising at all.
