Second suspect in Dot. Ave. cop shooting in custody

The Herald reports police found Donta Lewis in a crawl space in his girlfriend's house; he's scheduled for arraignment this afternoon for his alleged role in the incident, in which two BPD officers were shot in the legs and a second suspect was shot to death.

Innocent, etc.

    That picture in the Herald of the officer in what appears to be an urban assault vehicle is just ridiculous. What purpose does it serve but to alienate an already uncooperative populace even more than they already are?

    Call me old fashioned, but two beat cops patrolling a neighborhood and who are known to the residents are more effective than this bullshit show of force, IMHO.

    You're right, but the war may be lost.
