Nation's Capital Declares Crime Emergency
" District of Columbia Police Chief Charles Ramsey declared a crime emergency in the city after Senitt, a volunteer for the potential presidential campaign of former Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner, was killed."
Declaring a crime emergency is only a short-term response.

We need to stop talking, and start doing.
