Three robberies this afternoon… two in Borderstan and one in Adams Morgan. Both robberies in Borderstan were with a gun and in the same area as a number of other armed robberies the past two weeks. The times were around 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

“Yeesh” is about all I can say.

    I can’t remember a spate of gun robberies in the neighborhood like this. Maybe worst of all, a lot of them seem to be taking place pretty well in broad day light or during busy times of the evening on streets I don’t associate with problems. I sincerely hope the MPD knows the danger here and is doing something about it. If someone is getting stuck up 4 or 5 times a week, it’s only a matter of time until someone else gets shot.

    Jeff – I think that is what everyone fears.

    Shall we become vigilantes? Seriously. This is getting really out of control. I’m remember back in 1995 when crime was raging around Meridian Hill Park, the Washington Post reported that neighbors began walking around with large sticks and poles when went outside. Not making this up.

    I love how these items say “Do not take action call 911.” No one has ever come in the few instances that I’ve called 911. Are they insane?
