Thanks again, DC Policy Center (@DCPolicyCenter) for using one of my photographs to illustrate another excellent analysis.

I didn’t realize how the legacy of Washington, DC’s past is now shaping its presence with regard to public safety. The photograph was taken shortly after a 23-year old graduate student from American University was killed by a stray bullet in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC, which, along with several other shootings in the area, resulted in a significant police presence in the neighborhood.
