    These things cannot be allowed in our neighborhood.
    I understand there was a basketball game that got out of control. Why are there not MANY more police at these sorts of gatherings.

    I hope MPD is paying attention.

    Let me guess…..Park Morton at its best

    So what are we as a community going to do about it? Kent — any meeting planned with MPD, DPR?

  4. Pworth Says:

    This was extremely tragic and distressing. I am still unclear on the connection between the basketball tournament and the shooting. If they were connected in any way I would hope that we could either force DPR to move the event to a different venue, or at least press for much tighter security and an afternoon time slot.

    Agree if this was connected to the tournament then that needs to be addressed, I am also concerned at how late the tournament goes on throughout the summer for several nights a week.

      Yes, when did the decision get made to allow the tournament to end at 10pm (actually, it’s often later)? Why not have it during daylight hours? Even Saturday/Sunday afternoons? Kent, have you walked the streets on tournament nights? There’s a lot of spill over into the neighboring blocks. Partying, blocking traffic, drinking, etc.

      Now, someone else’s son had died. Should we add his name to the tournament?

    So it’s been almost a week, and there’s no response from either Kent or the DC Police on this homicide…? I’ve never lived in a neighborhood that seemed so blase about violence.
