Police State in the District of Columbia

From the (washington) examiner:

"D.C. police will seal off entire neighborhoods, set up checkpoints and kick out strangers under a new program that D.C. officials hope will help them rescue the city from its out-of-control violence."

A DC Councilman said "that he worried about D.C. “moving towards a police state.”" Well, at least DC is being granted some sort of state status.

UPDATE: [06.13.2008] Apparently D.C. police have given up on this idea. (the raw story)
