Crime Report: That Was Then... - The DOJ may think that crime continues its boom-era decline, but its data is from 2002, and we here in DC feel differently about the current situation. While I don't have precise numbers, Washington D.C. has got to be the large city with the highest number of law enforcement officers. Just look at the number of agencies with cops we have -- D.C. Metro, the U.S. Park Service, the Capitol Police, the Secret Service, plus all the branches of the heretofore mentioned Department of Justice. Given our level of crime, I guess that makes them among the most incompetent forces in the country as well. I'm not holding out too much hope that our new neighbor the Congressman will bring a lot more protection our way.
