* "The incident began when Poke overpowered several corrections guards Wednesday morning on the hospital's fourth floor, taking two guns. He then fired several shots as he tried to break free of shackles around his legs. Once outside the hospital, Poke carjacked a Toyota Camry after shooting out the car's window and hitting the driver in the head." [WTOP]


* "Levy's mother, Susan Levy, said she welcomes the renewed attention her daughter's death will receive. Most of the investigators originally involved in the case have retired or moved on to other jobs." [The Modesto Bee]

* "An increase in violent crime is by no means good news, but we've said it before and we'll say it again -- it is actually important to remember that this is the fourth year in a row that had fewer than 200 murders.

* "The MPD took 350 firearms off the DC streets this weekend as part of a buyback program, in which people are given between $10 and $100 for their firearms. It's a good way to get rid of your guns, as they'll be melted down by a local foundry, but since they're test-fired by ballistics experts first, you might not want to turn in that murder weapon you've been keeping."
