PostSubject: Fight Crime By Banning Pizza?   Mon May 25, 2009 8:18 pm

confused DC Ban On Pizza Slices To Fight Crime

A Washington, DC councilman is drafting legislation that would ban the late-night sale of single slices of pizza as a way to combat crime.

Democrat Party councilman Jim Graham says the late-night “Jumbo Slice” pizza shacks operating on the popular Adams Morgan club and bar strip in Ward 1 attract the element that is likely to commit crime.

“Even though it’s a legal business and everything, they have become a nuisance,” Graham said. “Behaving the way they do in terms of music, in terms of letting people hang out and also in terms of tolerating a certain level of violence.”
Graham also blames dead-end streets for violent crime in DC, and has funneled tax dollars into fighting this unruly menace to society.

While a recent hidden camera exposé done by WJLA-TV showed a recent fight that started just outside a pizza joint, its owner feels his business is being unfairly targeted. “We are taxpayers also,” said pizza joint manager Abdul Souada. “Our business is the same as bar business, as the club business, as the other restaurants next door.”

Residents and party-goers scoffed at Councilman Graham’s proposed legislation, which reportedly has the backing of the mayor. “The crowd out here in general is the problem,” said Adams Morgan resident John Sawyko. “The pizza places are a small part of the issue.”


Because surely it's the food's fault. frustated

If they really wanted to down crime they should put patrols in those areas.

I don't know if this is still going on, but at one time weren't pizza places being used to catch criminals by running their names through a police check when they ordered delivery?
