    The Hill ^ | April 22, 2004 | Albert Eisele and Jeff Dufour
    Police told a group of conservatives affiliated with to cease a mock bake sale they held in front of John Kerry’s D.C. campaign headquarters last weekend. The small, pro-Bush rally was held to counter’s “Bake Back the White House” bake sale last weekend, which the liberal organization claims brought in $250,000 from 1,000 bake sales around the country. The proceeds will help fund anti-Bush ads. Kristinn Taylor, who helped organize the FreeRepublic gathering, said since the law prohibits a group like MoveOn from “co-ordinating” with the Kerry effort, it couldn’t hold a bake sale in front of headquarters....

    D.C police officers making routine stops are prohibited from asking people about their immigration status, Metropolitan Police officials said yesterday in a restatement of department policy. "We will leave that to the federal officials," Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey said at a briefing to announce new training procedures and a public information campaign about the policy. Chief Ramsey also said that illegal immigrants need to know that reporting a crime does not mean a trip back to their native coutnry and that officers will deliver fair and equal police services to every person within the District. D.C. police officers cannot...

    (June 6th, 2002 -- 11:18 PM EDT //Un-&%$^#@* believable. Despite giving them a hard time now and then I've always resisted the idea that the DC cops were really fundamentally incompetent, that the seeming inscrutability of Chandra Levy's disappearance and murder might simply be the result of ridiculously inept police work. Now I've changed my mind. As you no doubt know, Levy's remains were found recently in an isolated section of DC's Rock Creek park. But a couple days ago a fellow Chandra-phile and I were watching Greta Van Susteren's show when she and a couple guests -- a renowned...

    It's now been a week and a day since The Patriots Rally for America, and Gore_ War_ Vet's truck is still MIA somewhere in our nations capital; thanks to some unknown tow truck driver on the city of DC payroll. Gore_ War_ Vet and I had unloaded all our rally supplies from our vehicles at the rally site on Constitution Avenue at 7:30am last Saturday, April 20th, and we then headed off to find parking. Parking on Constitution Avenue is usually allowed, but the street was marked with "Emergency - No Parking" signs because the radical left's pro-intifada demonstration was...
