Another Dangerous Criminal Taken Off The Streets By Ravenwood
Another dangerous criminal was caught in the act by Washington D.C.’s finest. The city may have one of the highest murder rates in the country, but that doesn’t stop them from issuing $5 jaywalking tickets to the mortally injured.
Charles Atherton, a former secretary of the U.S. Commission on Fine Arts that advises the government on architecture and design in official Washington, was hit Thursday while crossing busy Connecticut Avenue. He died Saturday night at George Washington University Hospital.
Although witnesses said he was badly injured and unresponsive at the scene, police issued him the ticket. His family found it with his belongings when they went to the hospital.
He’s guaranteed not to re-offend.
