There was a shooting at Florida and Orren just after midnight. The victim was shot in the stomach. I do not have further information on the condition of the victim. This is in the Trinidad neighborhood.

I asked an MPD officer about the African American men that are driving up to people who are walking and robbing them with guns. He told me he would not let his wife walk their dog after dark in cap hill.

I feel safe on the Hill. I'll look at my ipad while walking late at night on the Hill. Trinidad. Nope

I'm going gout on a bit of limb here and say that it's probably not the best idea to look at your iPad while walking at night anywhere in the District. Sure, you probably won't get mugged...but why take that risk?

When people around you have nothing. I think its self absorbed to just wave a $600.00 toy around in public. Not saying we all have to dress like beggars or ride the bike share , but some common sense and sensitivity would improve us all

Nothing??? lol, no one in this country has nothing. Half the homeless people even got cell phones.

Also, most handguns cost as much as, if not more, than an iPhone. You also generally can't get the cost of you gun rolled into your monthly cell phone plan either. So these assholes apparently can find several hundred bucks for a gun. They also probably have a roof over their heads, clothes on their back, and food in their stomachs. They so called poor in this city are in fact more well off than 90% of the population of the world. To pretend as if that's still not enough that people shouldn't be expected to tolerate the site of someone else's property without running over to kill them and steal it is ludicrous.

You have lost the script anon1049. You low expectations for your fellow human beings are insulting. Fuck these thieves.

I second that 12:27. We shouldn't have to put up with this monkey business. That 57 year old latino wasn't putting up with it on the X2. Why should we have to walk around without arms?

@4:37 Because we are decent human beings. I dont want to hurt or kill anyone that is why we have the military and police. The animals robbing and hurting people in DC are not humans. They should all have a hole in their face and left to lie in the gutter like Michael Brown.
I think 12:27 is just a loud mouth know it all that sits home curses at the TV.
You want positive change you have to make it happen and don't let the garbage from Ferguson create anarchy in the streets while the Police stand back aka Baltimore

Our taxes pay for their food, clothes, and housing for life, sometimes they want our iPhones too. One of the biggest forms of child abuse in this city is instilling in children that living with your hand out your whole life and not working is ok. Stop relying on others and better yourself. People in much worse do it everyday.
