CRIME: Mayor Says Kids Are After Your Car

Mayor Anthony Williams has issued a special crime alert for the city that will mobilize the city's police to target juvelines who are stealing cars at unprecedented levels.

"These aren't just kids out for a joy ride," Williams tells The Washington Post. "These are acts of reckless, senseless violence. These are crimes."

Neighbors in some of the hardest hit areas in Northeast and Southeast say that many kids steal cars to play a rendition of "cops and robbers" where the maverick driving kids drive in an erratic fashion on city streets.
