    i saw a fight about a week ago right on H st between 6th and 5th. it seems preplanned. i wonder if there’s some ongoing rivalry going on.

    What happened to the increased police presence at the 7th and H St. metro that seemed to occur with some regularity this past fall? It really seemed to disperse the crowds of teenagers and make the neighborhood a little calmer.

    Sad to say, but the police don’t do anything or maintain their presence, because they don’t want to, which leads me to believe that they likewise, don’t give a ‘you know what!’ I JUST walked by 7th & H and it was like a loiterer’s convention. I just don’t get it!

    Last Friday night there were about 50 teens hanging around the 7th and H metro entrance without a single cop in sight. Instead walking south on 7th we saw about a dozen cops across from the Rosa Mexicana, with one guy holding a very large gun… I wish they had a presence where it was needed rather than protecting those eating fresh guac.

    To David’s comment–I see that all the time: cops gathered in groups of 4 or 5 a safe distance from the trouble. One night, after having been yelled at by some teens at the metro, I walked by a bunch of them valiantly guarding the park at 5th and Mass and asked why they didn’t position themselves where all the teens were. They just stared at me blankly. Glad I pay taxes!
