When thinking of Washington DC, grand monuments and museums might come to mind, however, in recent years, America’s capital has become more renowned for its growing homeless population and rising crime.
“Crime here has exploded, people do not feel safe,” Isaac Smith, an Emergency Medical Technician in DC, told The Telegraph for a documentary film about the capital.
“I have a bullet hole through my living room,” Mr Smith continued.
“I hear gunshots frequently and I live right next to an elementary school. There’s a bullet hole in one of the [school’s] windows.”
Violent crime in DC has risen by 10% since 2022, which includes a 15% increase in homicides.
Mr Smith blames the Democrats, who have dominated the city’s local politics for decades, for the rise in violence.
“At the end of the day, they don’t believe that people have agency. They don’t believe that people have free will. So people do not act, they are acted upon.”
Muriel Bowser, the Democratic mayor of the city, will be hosting a Public Safety Summit on Wednesday to engage with locals on how to tackle the increase in crime.
