On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Violent crime is up in certain sections of D.C. and police are struggling to figure out why. In the meantime the Metropolitan Police Department is flooding some parts of Southeast with officers and their presence is visible. We talk with community members about the reaction to the police show of force, the reasons behind the spike in an area where crime is already high and how the city can help stem the violence.
