  1. This mess is getting too close to home. Time for us to consider living elsewhere. Yeah, I get that crime is everywhere, but there has to be safer neighborhoods to live in.

  2. This is why I left Lexington park area years ago and I don’t even like to go shopping down there this area is becoming another dc

  3. This is definitely getting too close to home. I honestly thought we’d feel safe moving our family here from Waldorf, because DC folk was slowly moving there. But in hindsight I guess we should’ve stayed there and renovated our house…smh…Lesson well learned
