Biker Attacks Getting Noticed

It seems that the pattern of attacks on bikers has not gone unnoticed. Councilmember Graham finally took notice after the City Paper wrote about the incidents, which both we and DCist have been reporting for a while. A snippet of MPD's response from Councilmember Graham's site:

I will instruct PSA 304 officers to give this location speciall attention during these hours. Housing Police agreed to do the same. The Housing Police office/post telephone number adjacent to the area is 202-673-7355, officer Brooks works the 1430-2300 tour of duty Sun - Thur. Sgt. Jeter

This blog was going well then you let it die for about a 5 to 6 weeks. No wonder no one posts. Probably thought you killed it.

Brillant observation. I'm just glad it's back and that we have people in our community who care enough to keep it going.

It's been great since its "return" - you may have missed all the listserve announcments and notifications that it's back online.

Unfortunately, one of the original regular contributors became discouraged by the constant negative feedback and comments left by trolls posting anoymously, and she stopped posting. By the time we got around to picking the ball back up, I fear that a lot of our readers thought it had simply been abandoned, as you said.

We've seen a slow increase in readership since then, so hopefully word of mouth has begun to spread that the blog is up and running again.
