A message on the PSA 105 Yahoo Group
, posted by Ofc. Marvin Williams of MPD, says that there will be a "Fightback" on August 11 at 10 am, staged at 900 First Street SE (which would be in front of the Nexus Gold Club). What's a Fightback? Quoting: "There will be several other DC agencies on hand checking abandoned buildings, cars, fire hazards, business licenses for the businesses that are left, etc......we will also issue out any fines for businesses not in compliance." For folks who don't know about the PSAs, they are "Police Service Areas
", and PSA 105's boundaries include the western half of Near Southeast, from 6th Street to South Capitol and from the Freeway to the River. (PSA 105 also extends north of the Freeway as well.) The eastern part of Near Southeast is part of PSA 106.
