10 Violent Crimes this week that sum up life in D.C. outside the Biden Capitol Border Wall

/////

WASHINGTON, D.C. – While life inside the compound within the U.S. Capitol Border Wall, a cornerstone of the administration of President Joe Biden is safe and comfortable, life outside the wall is anything but safe. In the past week, the nation’s capitol has been rocked by violence, murders, car jackings and armed robberies.

The violence culminated with a deadly second attack on the nation’s capitol, when a radicalized African American terrorist drove his car through a security checkpoint and killed a U.S. Capitol police officer.

The violence seemingly began earlier in the week when two teenage girls hijacked and murdered an Uber drive outside the Washington National’s baseball stadium.

Here are 10 violent crimes that have rocked the nation’s capitol in the past 7 days.
