D.C. is a hotbed of crime and soft-on-crime policies.

The U.S. attorney’s office in D.C. declined to prosecute 67% of individuals arrested by police last year who would’ve been tried in D.C. Superior Court. The shocking numbers come just one month after the district tried overhauling its criminal code by reducing penalties for major crimes.

This is from The Washington Post:

But even compared to a local prosecutor’s office, a 67 percent declination rate is high. For example, in Wayne County, Mich., which includes Detroit, the prosecutor’s office reported declining 33 percent of its cases last year. Prosecutors in Philadelphia declined 4 percent, and prosecutors in Cook County, Ill., which includes Chicago, declined 14 percent, according to data from those offices.

The suspect, Glynn Neal, 42, has been arrested and charged with Assault with Intent to Kill (Knife) for the incident. Neal has a long and violent rap sheet. In 2011, he received a 12-year sentence.

Last month Congresswoman Craig was assaulted in a D.C. elevator. The congresswoman was the assaulter’s 13th victim. The criminal was released from prison the day before.

The parents of the staffer described their son’s condition in the tweet below. He is expected to make a full recovery.

We need a congress who will straighten out the District of Columbia so that the capital of our nation is a beautiful show place for our country, a place of safety.
It is part of the swamp that needs to be cleaned up.

Another black savage with multiple arrests and convictions released from jail because bleeding heart white people feel sorry for them. You know they were slaves a couple hundred years ago, so they still carry that burden with them. We should give them reparations of 20k and a one way ticket back to jungleville and tell them don’t ever come back. I guess white people will never have the balls to tell these people, either shape up or ship out. It will only get worse.
