“Makes me wonder…”

Two police officers were conducting traffic at 10th and Franklin this (last Friday) morning because last night’s storm caused a power outage in that traffic light. As I walked past one of the officers, he said “Those fools are always saying ‘Hey, baby’ or ‘Hey, cutie’ to every woman that walks by.” I didn’t get to hear the rest of the conversation because I continued to walk, but that makes me wonder if the police are aware of the rampant street harassment in DC and if they’re doing anything about it. That officer had a tone of annoyance with these men and concern for the women in his voice, from the bit of conversation I heard. I hope he is one of those who is actually doing something about stopping harassment.
