I think this DC Police Alert from this afternoon almost leaves me speechless. An armed gunman committed a robbery this afternoon at 1:43 p.m. at 16th & K NW, which is exactly 0.4 miles north of The White House.
Questions for the DC City Council: My family visits next month from Illinois. If they ask me, “Is downtown DC safe?” what would you like me to tell them? Should I say, “Don’t go near The White House in broad daylight, you might get robbed by an armed gunman”?
