- I have to say since I moved here about 18 months ago, I'm seeing fewer and fewer patrols in our neck of the woods, too (19th & H Sts NE). We seem to have a gang hanging out on the 800 block of 18th Street doing the same type of drivebys. I witnessed a fight there a couple of weeks ago as I was driving home. I called 311, but since I can't see that area from my house I have no idea if anyone ever showed up.I guess they've moved all our officers over to Adams Morgan to keep the MD and VA residents safe while they're clubbing it up in the richer wards...

So as far as I'm concerned we don't have ANY patrol. It's sad! I
truly believe that an innocent, tax paying, law abiding citizen will
have to become a victim of a senseless crime in order for 5D to
patrol the mean streets of Eckington.

- Note: Correction, the second paragraph is what I wrote, not the first or third paragraph. "Vincent Orange says drug dealers have rights..." that was my statement not the other 2. Thanks...GwenIn a message dated 1/31/2006 12:11:51 PM Eastern Standard Time, tvehunt@... writes:

It is obvious that Vincent Orange is just like most polictians they
want your vote just to maintain their upper class life style but,
yet once they are voted in office, they do not do the job for which

like V. Orange fell to realize that the same people that voted him
in office can very well vote his ass out of his political office. I
have called his office a few times for the same type of issues like
everyone else and he does absolutely NOTHING!!! Remember what
happen to K. Chavous, S. Allen and H. Brazil they took citizens
votes for granted. As for Orange, I always knew that he was not cut
out to be a ward counsilman in the first place, he not even from DC,
he is from California and that should tell you all right there that
he is clueless about the ways of this city. I myself have never
voted for him in ward 5 NOT AT ALL!!
