    So, Bowser and Lanier want to change their worthless, no good drug fighting tactics that went after low level dealers for 10 years to now focus on suppliers. Let’s give that 10 years and see it fail. No, it will only take about 10 days. Brilliant Chief Laner consolidated the 7 vice units into 1 bureaucracy that will be effective at sipping Arizona Teas while watching Eastern High School kids break into the nearby condo complex. Can’t wait to see what summer will bring: stolen bikes, belligerent bullies on the Metro, and Bizarro.

    Meanwhile, a heap of homeless folks just OD’d on semi-legal synthetic weed and Bowser wants to RAISE our taxes to provide permanent houses aka projects for them. By the way DC MPD & Lanier, there are about 40 stolen bikes sitting outside the Mitch Snyder Homeless Shelter and Art Center. Maybe, we can have a WABA-sponsored Bike Rodeo. Well, the Homeless Art Center is boarded but that leaves more room when you freak out on smack.

    Your drug fighting tactics didn’t work for 10 years. There are still open air drug markets (NY Avenue, U St., Benning Rd.). Raising taxes doesn’t help a city that is *NOT* cash strapped just incompetently run. It’s sad but I prefer Congress running this town.
