If they used the app to find a sketchy neighborhood for the story, it worked better then advertised. Whoever designed the app should be awarded the Nobel prize for technological innovation & it does exist…

You don’t suppose their was a reason that neighborhood was considered “sketchy” do you?
But then liberals want the whole world to be one big ghetto it seems.

Except for where they live. In those enclaves private security with guns, fences, and walls abound. Those areas are also whiter than the driven snow.

Don’t expect too many of us here at IHTM to feel any sympathy for these arrogant f***-sticks.

From the interview its clear they learned NOTHING.
Refusing to state the name of the area because it would imply race…

Years ago there was a race riot in Minneapolis over some damn grievance or another. Of course the media was all over it, exactly where anyone with a brain wouldn’t have been. In one crew the camera man and talking head chick got the shit beat out of them. (Another crew filmed it) I thought that was hilarious and think this DC incident is hilarious. Maybe these arrogant morons will think twice about the “free pass” being media gives them.

That’s one of the reasons the Raiders are looking to leave again.

Hell why is this news? We are all getting robbed by those in DC.

If you are stupid enough to be in parts of the District that everyone tells you it’s not safe. You deserve to get robbed.

Those liberals deserve it. They need to grow a brain. What did they expect to happen in a slum? Getting invites to church services?

Maybe they were hoping for someone to offer them some drugs.
