    Take the rest of Friday off Chief/Mayor, start your weekend early your job is done. Don’t worry, we residents can’t walk the street without being victims, but you have all the protection you need.
    The threat of being robbed or a victim is ours…..not yours. Why don’t you send your protective detail home for the evening and walk H street about 11:30 tonight (you can’t ride the non-functioning street cars, that would be cheating). Heck…take a friend if you like. We have to walk the streets alone looking over our shoulders now….why don’t you come out and experience that for yourself.
