‘Our Nation’s Capital Has Become a Warzone’

(Patriot.Buzz) – Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies have finally paid off, as they have finally turned America’s capital into a “warzone.”

Republican Representative Mike Collins from Georgia recently revealed that a member of his staff and a friend were robbed at gunpoint in Washington, D.C.’s Navy Yard area.

Collins shared the incident on X (formerly Twitter), stating that it occurred involved three assailants.

According to Collins, one robber stole a watch and another was struck by one of the victims during the encounter.

“Our nation’s capital has become a warzone because of pro-criminal policies peddled by D.C.’s government. Thank the good Lord, after fending off the assailants, both young men are safe,” Collins expressed in his post.

The Metropolitan Police Department confirmed the robbery and mentioned that multiple suspects were involved, one of whom had a firearm.

They fled the scene in a vehicle, with authorities later circulating an image of the car and its license plate online.

January 2024 statistics from the Metropolitan Policе Department indicate a troubling surge in crime within the district.

Violent crime rates rose by 39% in 2023, even though Washington, D.C., has the highest number of policе officers per capita in the United States.

Overall, the crimе rate increased by 26% from the previous year, totaling 34,414 reported instances of violent and property crimes, with property crime alone rising by 24%.

In January 2024, D.C. Councilmember Brookе Pinto introduced the Secure DC Omnibus bill in response to the escalating crime rates.

The legislation seeks to increase penalties for gun crimes, establish new penalties for retail theft, broaden the definition of carjacking, permit DNA collection from felony suspects and designate certain high-crime areas as drug-free zones.

After the bill was enacted on March 5, 2024, Pinto remarked that it “sends the clear message that DC is united in its efforts to make meaningful and sustainable improvements to public safety for residents across the District.”
