Police carA person was stabbed yesterday near the King Greenleaf Recreation Center in Southwest.

The stabbing occurred on the 200 block of M Street SW a little after 5 p.m. yesterday, according to a spokesperson for D.C. Fire and EMS. The victim was hospitalized with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

There were also two robberies reported in the Capitol Hill area last night.

Around 8 p.m., there was a robbery near the intersection of 13th and H streets NE, according to a tweet from police. The thief was not armed.

The second robbery occurred in Hill East about 8:30 on the 700 block of 12th Street SE, according to a tweet from police. Police said the thief used force and violence but could not immediately provide additional details on the incident.

This post will be updated as more information on these crimes becomes available.

    I am getting so tired of this. The city needs to get serious about cracking down on crime and institute serious penalties and deterrence mechanisms. We should not have to live in daily fear like this. A stabbing, shooting, etc. should result in life in prison, and violent robberies, robberies with threat of force, etc. should result in several (i.e., 10+) years imprisonment. A man shoots a boy in the chest and receives only five years? https://www.hillnow.com/2015/10/19/man-sentenced-to-five-years-in-prison-for-hill-east-shooting/

    Enough is enough. I am so tired of the bleeding hearts in our city and elsewhere claiming that sad and impoverished adults in their twenties and late teens are victims of their own dispositions or their own situations and, therefore, somehow are not responsible for their cruel and evil acts against others. The vast majority of people raised in impoverished and/or broken homes in this country do not grow up to be murderers, rapists, or violent thieves. So why do we offer such leniency to those who do? Lock them up and throw away the key — the alternative is to sit back and permit them to continue to rob, injure, and kill innocent people.
