If You Want to Rob a Bank...

Today's your day.

If you're the type whose lifelong dream is to wreak some mayhem on the streets of DC, your best odds are right now. Police Chief Lanier's "All Hands on Deck" nonsense has resulted in such exorbiant overtime payouts that the city is currently being underserved by the MPD to cut costs.

Fewer than half the number of officers needed to patrol some neighborhoods are available to work the second half of this week. Some officers are estimating the entire police force is down by about a third right now.


Hopefully this will buy you some time when you rob that bank.

I know I should give it more of a chance, but "All Hands on Deck" has been a catastrophic failure. The extra police presence hasn't prevented any crime. And now we have a severe police shortage. That won't prevent any crime either. I get the feeling that if crime drops in the city it will be despite Chief Lanier instead of because of it.

But, hey, at least she hasn't been stealing from DC's coffers. Small victories!

  6. gay for beckhamAugust 10, 2007

    Its true. He really does look better in person. At one point during the match he was shirtless. (although for a brief moment) All the gays in attendance were standing there with our mouths open. David Beckham is the very definition of a good looking man. It was raining. He was wet and sweaty. I almost had to excuse myself to the nearest restroom for a few minutes if you know what I mean. The tickets cost me $200. I do not know how I am going to pay rent this month but in my opinion it was definitely well worth it. I would do it again in a heartbeat. :) :) :)

    Rusty, on 8/3 you said that the DC Metro is considerably cheaper that New York and Boston's.

    Huh?

    You can go anywhere you want on New York's for two bucks. It practically costs that to go one fucking stop here. What's your logic?

    So where are all these cops hanging out at?!

    " was walking home on Rhode Island Av., in front of the Catholic Charities Center for the Homeless, in a well lit area, and with a knife on my chest so I gave him all my money, then he made me empty my pockets and demanded only the cash; then, he said "go." As I got on to the corner of 6 St. and Rhode Island, and turned left I was shocked and froze to hear the same phrase, and I turned to look on the corner of my eye I saw that he was mugging to another guy in the very same spot were he intercepted me"
