What a disgrace.
Radical Mayor Bowser doesn’t think carjackings are a violent crime.
The suspect killed another victim, hijacked his car, and engaged in two more carjackings. Police shot and killed him in North Carrollton after he approached police armed.
Gill is currently senior vice president for Capital Markets at the Housing Policy Council. The organization’s website describes it as “a trade association whose members are among the nation’s leading mortgage originators, servicers, insurers & data/settlement service providers.”
