This is an idea whose time has definitely come — again. It’s been a brutal summer in DC. We just passed 100 homicides for 2015 — way beyond the number at this point last year. The cops aren’t offering much insight, other than there being too many guns on the street, which is not a new situation. There are some new, crazy, synthetic drugs on the street, too, which might explain some of these murders. The only silver lining, if there can be one, is that (to my knowledge) the MPD is not responsible for any of the killings. In America today, that’s saying something.
