DC Police Chief: We Have Too Many Guns in Our City

‘The justice system we have right now is not functional’
By Grabien Staff


CONTEE: “But what happened out here last night, I was out here last night, some of you live here, some of you may have just been out here, but that was unacceptable. It’s unacceptable in any community. The reality is we have situations that happen like this in our city all across our city. It has been happening for a long time. Last year we had over 922 people shot in our city, last year; 198 people murdered in our city last year. This should be shocking to the conscience of every person in our city. I don’t care where you live, it has the attention that it is gotten now because it happened where it happened, because we had an incident at the national state level. But this issue -- this issue that is crossing our city, there are too many guns in our city in Washington, D.C..”
