DC Blogs Noted


If you thought that the MPD Detective who brought a gun to a snowball fight painted the department in a less than flattering light, reading about the case of unarmed Larry Rice, Jr. getting shot in a warrantless drug raid, the subsequent police investigation that cleared the officers involved, and the actions of DC Attorney General, Peter Nickles, to shield the public from the truth in the lawsuit, will give even greater pause.  Thank you, City Desk for your reporting on this.
