So I joined this sub before my trip to DC, and im very surprised at the level of violent crime that seems to be in the area.

I'm curious and I'd like to make sure that I'm understanding this situation correctly. On Google maps it appears that this happened in like a 10 minute drive from the White House, and there is an FBI building on this street? While I was there, radio stations were warning people about wearing Canada Goose jackets because they were a target for robberies, and im looking around the Capital like what?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding and DC doesn't have a bad issue with violent crime, but if that is in fact correct how in the world is that possible? Seems like the one place in America where all of that would be rooted out thoroughly and for good.
