This makes me sick.
Do we have to look forward to these checkpoints all over the country? This is absolutely ridiculous. Thank you D.C. for showing us how a police state looks.
I did find this quote amusing:
Spitzer notes that homicides are actually relatively flat citywide in recent years, though there's been a big jump this year in that part of Northeast. "The sad answer is that there may be nothing that prevents crime in a crowded urban area in the summertime," he says.Wait ... So this is all for nothing. I see. Do you know why your crime rates are fairly flat and pretty high compared to the national mean? Maybe it's because you won't let the citizens of Washington D.C. defend themselves legally.
Really, it's just a thought.
