I wondered why I couldn’t find Washington on the list preliminary 2007 crime stats for big cities. The Examiner made the smart call to find out why: DC police are still finishing the implementation of a new computerized data system, a tool they purchased after a big snafu over the 2006 data dump to the FBI.

Actually, the Examiner is really all over it this a.m., which another scoop on DC police manning checkpoints without training.
