Metro says that Metrobuses traveling in parts of Southeast Washington are being pelted with rocks. As part of a campaign to discourage this, police are distributing a flier reminding people not to throw rocks at buses or cars. The Metro Transit Police and Metropolitan Police Department have been distributing the flier, which features a reminder that throwing rocks at vehicles is a crime.

And to think that the savages near DC have to be reminded that throwing rocks at vehicles is illegal? And if the Metro did cancel night bus service to the area, you know the ACLU would sue.

Better rocks than 9mm bullets, I suppose.

Maybe the answer is to arm buses like B17 bombers with turret guns, waist guns, tail guns, etc.

I am sure that this stern warning and reminder will not go unheeded by the pond scum throwing rocks! Perhaps some harsh language sould be in order too...

Only in DC could there be a campaign calling for rock control.

#4 is pretty close in his description of what lives in southeastern Washington. I am surprised any cars or buses drive throught there at all. Accidentally drove into that area one day and even though I was locked tight in my car, I was definitely afraid. Those people stared at me with death in their eyes.

Most amusing! Wonder how long before we start seeing ´ASBO´s in the US? For the uninformed, an ´ASBO´ is an ´Anti-Social-Behavior-Order´, which a friend in Britain tells me is now ´standard procedure´ when dealing with juvenile crime...a stern shaking of the finger followed by a stern paper shaking of the finger...

My friend also informs me that frequently the police handing ´em out - are beaten up in the process.

I´m sure that´s followed by a ´more stern´ finger shaking.

Interesting planet we got going on here. As far as I´m concerned - throwing a rock at a moving vehicle is tantamount to assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill - and should be handled as such.

I hope this program works ---think of the savings.

No more police departments! Just a printing press in the basement of city hall.

---Please do not stand on street corners exchanging money for dangerous drugs.

---Please do not enter banks wearing ski masks and carrying banned weapons.

---Please do not drive thru neighborhoods at high rates of speed, while discharging "assault weapons".

1. Only gov´t can be this stoopit.
2. Shut down all transit service through such areas.
3. OK, except for decoy buses. Full of cops with shotguns. And plenty of shells. Hey -- with Stinky cutting back on the military, the DC cops ought to be able to get a good buy on a couple Apache helicopter gunships. Hmmm....

Americans can no longer be allowed to visit Rock Creek Park in DC.

Obviously it is the source of an unlimited supply of these hurled missiles.

We cannot visit or drill for oil in ANWR (Alaska National Wildlife Reserve).
This protects the fragile ecosystem and the animals there.

So shut down also Rock Creek Park.
The fragile transit system is at risk, so are the animals... er, sorry... peeps...
there in the District.

Turnabout is fair play.

The flyers would have to be done as pictograms, seeing how the prehistoric rock hurlers likely are illiterate. Even then they would only laugh.

Halt all bus service to the area, prevent them from traveling to commit their crimes. Think of the savings.

People act like this is something new.
When I was but a wee lad, I lived two blocks from my elementary school. I had the great privilege to get on a bus with all of the others in my neighborhood, and rise the six miles to a different school in another neighborhood, that had it´s young residents bused back to my school.
At least three times a week, when we left to go home, our bus was pelted with rocks and bottles by the friendly youths.

That was 40 years ago.

The rock throwers have anger issues. Only more free stuff paid for by the labor of others will satisfy them. That fix is only a temporary high.Think of this as a ´free stuff ´ habit. Think of the democrat party as their pusher.

Angered by Georgia´s pending expansion of concealed carry laws within state lines, liberal radio host Mike Malloy said he´d like to invite an NRA board member to come meet him, then shoot the board member and claim "Stand Your Ground" in defense. The Georgia bill--the Safe Carry Protection Act--has passed the state House and Senate but still awaits the governor´s signature. It would expand concealed carry into schools, bars, churches, and the portions of airports that are outside the security parameter.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru
