Our Nation’s Capitol is so ridden with crime that the Capitol police are being used to address street crime

Hebrews 12:11 “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
Mathew 24:12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.

Important Takeaways:

  • Crime is so bad in DC that Congress is distributing tips to avoid being carjacked in capitol
  • The District of Columbia is currently struggling to contend with increased criminal activity that has many questioning the safety of living in the city at all. Compared to this point in 2022, data from the D.C. Metropolitan Police shows that homicides are up 28% and on pace to reach their highest levels in more than 20 years. Robberies, meanwhile, are up 67%. Residents have testified to increasingly driving for short distances due to fear of going outside.
  • Amid the crime wave, the Mexican consulate in Washington, D.C., has warned its citizens that “The city of Washington, D.C. is experiencing a significant increase in crime in areas previously considered safe. Take precautions. In an emergency, call 911.”
  • It’s so concerning… to think in a city of just over 500,000 people that 5,000 cars have been stolen already this year,” Steil said during a Monday appearance on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show. “[T]hat’s 20 to 25 a day. Seven hundred of those have been the result of carjackings, where people are viciously thrown out of their cars and thrown out into the streets as the criminals drive away.”
  • “It’s unfortunate, but it’s also true that the advice that was given today included telling people to give space between their car and the car in front of them when they pull up to a stop sign or a stoplight so they can make an evasive maneuver if they have to,” he added. “That’s how out of control crime is in Washington, D.C., and it’s not only carjackings, and car thefts, but we’re seeing it with assault with burglary, robbery, murder.”
  • “This crime is so out of control, liberal President Joe Biden was embarrassed into nullifying the D.C. City Council on the D.C. mayor’s bill that would have been soft on crime,” Steil said. “But I think what we need to do is potentially go a step further. Why? Because Capitol Police resources are being used to address street crime rather than their true mission of safeguarding the Capitol… [W]e’re finding out that we’re having to do a lot of the street crime work that the Metropolitan Police Department should do. Why? The direct result of the liberal policies of D.C.’s local city government.”
