DC Mayor Declares Public Emergency as Juvenile Crime Spikes 10%

Washington, DC, Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser declared a public emergency in the nation’s capital this week after the opioid fatalities spiked and juvenile crime soared ten percent from 2022’s alarming rate.

The order will enhance the activation, implementation, and coordination of aid agreements between the District, federal, and local authorities to allegedly reduce crime.

Crime soared in 2022 after U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Matthew Graves refused to prosecute 67 percent of those arrested. In turn, 222 criminal homicides occurred in 2023, a 35 percent increase from the same period in 2022, according to police statistics. The district eclipsed 200 killings on August 12, the earliest point since the late 1990s.

D.C. currently ranks 173 in safety on a list of 182 American cities, sinking from 168 last year, according to a study released in October by WalletHub.

Some District residents told Breitbart News the crime there resembles a “war zone.” In the first nine months of 2023, police data shows:

  • 458 juveniles arrested for robbery, carjacking, homicide, assault
  • 151 juveniles arrested for carjackings
  • Juveniles account for 66 percent of the carjacking arrests
  • 863 carjackings reported so far in 2023.

District officials also say that juvenile fatalities are far too high:

  • 97 juveniles have been shot — 15 fatally — in the last five weeks
  • 5 children died on court-ordered electronic monitoring alone

“This number alone tells us that we have to provide more intervention for kids who are in trouble,” Bowser realized during a press conference on Monday.

“To that end, this public emergency will allow us to increase capacity more quickly and efficiently across the continuum of placements for kids that are ordered by judges into care.”

Bowser also will use the public emergency to combat the opioid crisis plaguing the capital city:

  • Fatal opioid-related overdoses then doubled from 213 to 461 from 2018 to 2022
  • 96 percent of fatal opioid-related overdoses originated from fentanyl

Former President Donald Trump vowed to restore law and order to D.C. if reelected. Sharing on Truth Social an exclusive Breitbart News report in October titled “D.C. Residents Fear Crime Surge Turning Area into U.S. War Zone,” the former president called the town run by Democrats a “dirty, crime ridden death trap.” He pledged that reforms would be a part of his reelection platform.

“Washington (D.C.) has become a dirty, crime ridden death trap, that must be taken over and properly run by the Federal Government,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “It is, and will be, part of my Election Platform. We will clean it, renovate and rebuild it — and, most importantly, MAKE IT SAFE.”

    That’s including FBI, CIA, MILITARY COMMANDERS.
    WAKE UP.

  • The CDC lied when they blamed Pharmacists & RX Meds = it's ALWAYS been the illegal drugs!! Cartels are paying the Biden Syndicate says:

    NEWS FLASH – the CDC has lied to all Americans since the Obama era. It NEVER was Opioid Deaths due to Prescription Narcotics, Pill Mills, Rogue Pharmacies (hint: Legit Pharmacies have a brick bdlg with open/close hours and a Pharmacist wearing a white coat – NOT on the street corner). The CDC lied 100% about the Deaths from Prescription Medications – – – the CDC admitted to their “math error” back in 2019. The CDC put into place some stringent Opioid Guidelines that stripped Legitimate Pain Patients of their Medications – Veterans who returned home from War, those with cancer, sickle cell anemia or chronic pain syndrome = 50 Million legitimate Citizens who NEVER broke a law had their meds, that gave them the ability to cope & function w/chronic pain – STRIPPED from them – – 50 MILLION Americans in 2015. Every year since then, the Overdose rate went up substantially! It NEVER was legitimate Prescription Medications that have been given to legitimate patients for valid disorders for 50+ years. It has ALWAYS been the illegal street drugs.

    The CDC finally admitted their error – – – AFTER they killed thousands by suicide because they couldn’t tolerate the pain anymore. Imagine that, the CDC lying to Americans. They did it to 50 Million and got away with it and no one said squat; except the legit patients who battled them and they admitted their grave mistake.

    Therefore, they knew they could get away with the COVID scam less than 5 years later and they did AGAIN. IF any Govt Agency deserves to be blown up to pieces = it is the CDC. Their ONLY role is to provide “Guidance” and yet Biden & Obama empowered them and they run like Dictators!

    We gotta get every Democrat and RINO out of every position from the Dog Catcher, School Board, City Council, Union Directors, Trucking Union Director, every Govt Agency ……keep going all the way to the White House. WE MUST strip every Elected Official out of Office.

    NO MORE INCUMBENTS. What have the Incumbents done for us – – except a good group in the House of Representatives and those like Matt Gaetz, MTG and crew who were willing to BOOT Kevin McCarthy out. McCarthy made promises and didn’t keep ANY of them – – time to go!

    I hope 80% of all politicians currently in office are given the Kevin McCarthy treatment – because they deserve it. Fauci should be behind bars and all of his assets seized – Rochelle Walensky of the CDC should be behind bars with all of her assets seized – then Joe Biden, Christopher Wray, Merrick Garland and that’s a good start! They all need to be in GITMO and every red cent seized from every single bank account in the USA and overseas!

    In 2025, we begin to tear down what is left standing after we vote them ALL out – and rebuild it back the way it was intended. Taking Obama’s 100 Million and his 6 Mansions will be a great start to paying off the National Debt. He was born in Kenya and illegally was elected = SEIZE all of the Assets!

    How about DC start prosecuting criminals and then they don’t repeat the behavior? IF you are going to continue to cut them loose, they are going to continue to live their life of crime – – – it’s not rocket science. You don’t reward BAD behavior and BLM has been doing that, along with the Democrats for far too long! Drop off the criminals in the Elected “Elite” neighborhoods and then maybe they’ll take it serious.

  • Grant says:

    Just defund all police and let all criminals walk, save the city some money! Problem solved! But make it legal for me to murder anyone who tries to rob or commit any criminal act against me personally, I can blow you to fu kingdom come with fear of ever being prosecuted for it! Lets make this the Wild West again shall we? Anarchy is healthy for a strong thriving society, at least that’s what all the Democrat run cities have bought in to and it’s been working very well!!! I say keep voting Democrat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Watcher says:

    DC is a solid Democrat city! This is what they voted for and exactly what they deserve. The absurdity that they want to make it a state would be the destruction of the country. Our Marxist media has turned away from reality.
