repeat offenders and DC homicides
From the Washpo:
"Repeat violent offenders, according to Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D), are a chief problem. She makes the point that at least 22 homicide suspects were under supervision pending trial or on probation or parole at the time of the crime, and almost half, or 45 percent, had prior gun-related arrests in the District (compared with 27 percent in 2014).
Not to get all existential, but the problem is much deeper than synthetic drugs, high-capacity gun magazines, turf wars, rejiggering police deployment or keeping an eye on repeat violent offenders.
We have on our hands -- in our neighborhoods, on our streets and maybe living next door -- walking disasters: individuals who believe that their lives matter, but not yours or mine. Neither do our laws and institutions."
