Washington DC; (Reform Sasscer) – Two male teenagers from Prince George’s County have been arrested in connection with a series of recent robberies, car thefts and carjackings in the District, the D.C. police said Friday.
A 15-year-old was charged in a total of 17 offenses, including seven armed carjackings and six armed robberies in which cars were taken, the police said.
Another 15-year old was charged in the same six robberies and four of the carjackings, D.C. police said.
Both youths were charged in the two thefts, police said. In those cases, vehicles were unoccupied when taken, according to the police
The crimes were reported between Jan. 13 and Feb. 5, most of them in Southeast and Northeast, according to police.
These incidents come during a period of rising crime in the District and in Maryland.
DC Attorney General Karl Racine came out swinging Wednesday against Mayor Bowser in an interview with the press.
The mayor seemed to blame Racine for rampant carjackings, urging the public to pay attention to the prosecution decisions of Racine’s officer adding, “know that the executive [Bowser] doesn’t prosecute. The District’s Attorney General [Racine] is solely responsible for the prosecution of juvenile offenders.”
At least 10 juveniles were killed last year in Prince George’s County, Maryland which was the worst year for teen violence in the county since 2008.
County Executive Alsobrooks engaged in crimes herself has recently implored the community to come together to “disrupt the cycle of violence that is growing again.”
According to Alsobrooks, for example, there have been 162 carjackings in Prince George’s County. She acknowledged on or around January 11th that, juveniles are responsible for 96 of them.
“And so this tells us a lot about where we’re headed. And we must do something right now to disrupt it,” Alsobrooks said.
Dr. Monica Goldson a CEO for PGCPS who was selected through public corruption has never spoken publicly about the out of control fights and public corruption sweeping quietly through the school system. These willful violations include closing down schools ready for real estate option, paying off lawyers, siphoning money off to friends and family etc. Prince George’s county citizens must raise up and demand answers without delay. These out of control fights and other purposeful disregard are not fair to county residents, their families and United States.
More and more violent behavior from students these days, the students need help and they are NOT getting it! More needs to be done to safe lives. To be effective, violence prevention programs require community-wide collaborative efforts led by school system leader that include students, families, teachers, administrators, staff, social and mental health professionals, law enforcement, emergency response personnel, security professionals, school board members, parents and the businesses. The school system leader takes an active role to effect change and not hide in the closet and wish these problems away. Dr. Monica Goldson “Goldson” has failed to provide proper leadership style for sometime! It’s time to advance changes without fear.
