We shouldn’t be worried about stray bullets and random actions of violence. Yes, DC is a large city. But we could do a better job of protecting our neighbors. To do this, we need to make sure our police are not only fully funded but also fully supported. We need to make sure the police force is at capacity. And we need our police officers to not only be from DC but also willing to work with the community to solve our most difficult problems. What better way to protect our community than by having members of the community protect it. We can do better. We must do better.
