I used to live in the Trinidad neighborhood long, long ago. Those apartments and houses were OLD WITH CRUMBLING FOUNDATIONS then. One can only imagine the deterioration NOW! Why do people continue to live in those rat infested roach laden ghettos. In a couple more weeks they can look forward to some real encourgement; an African-American President. Maybe that will help them to take the high road and better themselves. STOP THE KILLING YOU MORONS, GET YOUR EDUCATION, LEARN TO READ AND WRITE AND BECOME SOMEBODY INSTEAD OF A GANGSTER. WHAT A WASTE!

Iraq is safer than D.C. Keep voting for the democrats who run D.C. D.C. corruption and violence is the "change" that Obama so desperately wants to bring to the rest of the country. Just look at the South side of Chicago and the work that Obama did there to see how bad he can make things. Obama certainly has a record of failure.

Primates on the warpath. They ought to call the Trinidad area the National Zoo Primate House East Annex!

Who is raising all of these criminals and future felons? Why do they tolerate this sort of behavior? Have any of these thugs ever had any discipline in their whole lives? Why do the teachers and administrators in DC or any public school system tolerate this kind of behavior? The government cannot fix this problem (unless they quit paying promiscuous garden implements to breed more children they don't take care of). Too many people in the community are not raising their children and the govt. and community demands nothing of parents.

The primates over at the National Zoo are once again offended by being compared to the worthless thugs in DC and the surrounding areas. After all they have never robbed or assaulted or raped or murdered anyone and yet they are the ones behind bars.

My heart goes out to the Shannon family. This is such a tradgedy! They need to incorporate "Anger Management" classes in all public schools-to begin in kindergarten.

I can't believe that in the year 2008 people are still as ignorant as they where back in slavery and after. Beth,Thug Hater,Bankrupted By Taxes,Disgusted,JAM your ignorant thinking/speaking is why we can't progress as a human race. Not only do you not understand others situation, you waste time commenting so negatively about someone being murdered. If you really gave a hoot, you would come from the burbs, run for office and help the ones that need it... everyway. Until you come up with postitve solution... let folks who really care about what happens to "all people" try their hardest to find a way to help them.

I agree!! White people consist mostly of pedophiles, child molesters, kiddie porn watchers, child predators and OMG their nasty women teachers love to have sex with their students. Oh and don't forget the mass murders they commit. Bunch of perverts and murderers!!!

It's so easy for you racist em effers to laugh at a situation like this. No politician can do much to stop this type of violence in White or Black ghettos.

Criminals, thugs, and gangsters are often very intelligent. That's why crime and violence flourishes. Those who suffer from violence are often violent to others.

You must have parental guidance and/or self-efficacy to climb out the ghetto. This is NOT the responsibility of the police or the National Guard! You people are stupid!

On the other hand, racism is learned from one's parents, which is hysterical in itself. A product of poor breeding; ignorance and being close minded.

It's terrible, isn't it? However - re. your suggestion that the police crack down on crime; the minute they try to do that, then people start fussing about a "police state," "violation of rights," and all that. Remember the outcry when the police set up the checkpoints a while back? More police presence MIGHT help, but one thing that needs to be done is when criminals are arrested, they need to be put in jail and KEPT there, not put back on the streets. Failing that, if it comes to it, I also believe the National Guard should be brought in. That our Nations' Capital should be a battle zone is completely inexcuseable.

You're absolutely correct. But what amazes me is that these posters always and I mean always inject racism into their chats when a black person commits a crime. You never hear from them when it's a crime committed by whites such as mass murders, white-collar robberies, child molesters, etc. Simply amazing!

Agreed!! You can tell from these forums that poor breeding,ignorance, and closed minds seem to be one thing the racists of all colors have in common.

What a funny post!!! "let folks who really care about what happens to "all people" try their hardest to find a way to help them. " The democrats who run D.C. could care less about people. That's why it is one of the most violent cities in the U.S. More violent than Iraq, even. People who care HAVE run for office and have been soundly rejected for the same old democrat, crack cocaine using, liberals. They get what they vote for. You can't force idiots (democrats, as a matter of fact and census) to vote for good government.

One does not "progress" the human race by implementing the same old socialist systems that have failed EVERY time they have been tried, in every society that they have been tried.

I agree that there is no place for racism from anybody on these forums. But as to "not hearing from them when it's a crime committed by whites," well, I'm white and, yes, I DO post comments about white criminals. Crime is crime, murder is murder, no matter WHAT the racial/national/religious backgrounds of the criminal or victim.

RGB --- I didn't say "democrats", who care, I said "folks who really care". That means anyone - you, Me. Stop your sterotyping and don't turn my words into your own.
