A slew of new traffic cameras expected to begin issuing tickets on Monday to drivers in the District will not go live as planned, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Two similar attacks on women in the District have prompted concern that the Internet-fueled youth violence phenomenon called the "knockout" game has taken hold in the city — but criminologists say the history of such attacks stretch back years and happen less frequently than perceived.
The D.C. police department has released information about how to re-register firearms in the city — two years after the original deadline.
Mark Witaschek, a successful financial adviser with no criminal record, is facing two years in prison for possession of unregistered ammunition after D.C. police raided his house looking for guns. Mr. Witaschek has never had a firearm in the city, but he is being prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The trial starts on Nov. 4.
The District of Columbia is the only place in the country that refuses to abide by the constitutional mandate that individuals have the right to bear arms. The city is a playground for criminals because they know the law-abiding aren’t armed. This week, however, one bad guy picked the wrong woman.
Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier seems to think that gun-control laws don’t apply to the liberal elite. She helped Sen. Dianne Feinstein acquire “assault weapons,” which are illegal to possess in the District, for a news conference early this year to promote a ban on these firearms, then tried to cover up the police involvement.
Washington Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier seems to think that gun-control laws don’t apply to the liberal elite. The police chief helped Sen. Dianne Feinstein acquire “assault weapons,” which are illegal to possess in the District, for a news conference early this year to promote a ban on these firearms, then tried to cover up the police involvement. However, a recent response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request reveals Chief Lanier’s shocking willingness to bend the rules for partisan and ideological purposes.

An off-duty D.C. police officer fired on a man who pointed an assault rifle at him Wednesday night in Southeast, authorities said.
A D.C. Superior Court judge has upheld an administrative board's ruling that puts the Metropolitan Police Department on the hook for millions of dollars in back pay and raises questions about the continued use of Chief Cathy L. Lanier's signature crime-fighting initiative.
As Chief Lanier has always held that she maintains the ultimate personnel authority to impose discipline, Ms. Crump said, there is not expected to be any increase in the number of cases with which the chief disagrees.
"The overarching issue in each case was that we did not feel that the OPC investigation had established sufficient cause to impose discipline — in one case, OPC reached a legal conclusion that was different than two separate prosecutors and two separate judges who had themselves reviewed aspects of the case," D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump wrote in response to questions about the opinion.
