The D.C. National Guard is stationing high-powered lights in the Dupont Circle area this week to brighten dark streets that might have contributed to a rash of robberies and the slaying of a popular waiter at a neighborhood restaurant, officials said yesterday.
Violent crime in D.C. is so bad that they have to call out the National Freaking Guard!
Some of the floodlights -- part of a D.C. National Guard anti-crime program -- are scheduled to be in the Dupont area until Saturday, according to Staff Sgt. Lorenzo Parnell of the D.C. Air National Guard.
For years, the National Guard has deployed the lights throughout the city, mostly in areas known for heavy drug dealing.
(sarcasm)Yeah, because those lights worked soooooooooo well before! We'll just keep trying the same thing until we get better results!(/sarcasm)
How much more evidence do you need? Gun Control DOES NOT WORK! Look at the areas with the strictest gun control, and you will find high violent crime rates without fail! Gun control only turns citizens into victims, while doing NOTHING to prevent criminals from getting guns!
It. Is. That. Simple.
