Early on August 9, 2020, a 17-year-old was killed, while an off-duty police officer received life-threatening injuries in the aftermath of at least 20 people getting shot when a fight kicked off at a cookout with hundreds of people in Southeast Washington.

According to D.C. police, at least three shooters opened fire from different locations around 12:30 a.m. at Dubois Place in the Greenway neighborhood. The incident caused party attendees to flee the scene and look for cover.

The dead teenager was identified as Christopher Brown.

The unidentified off-duty police officer, who was attending the party, received critical injuries and was “fighting for her life,” D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham reported. Law enforcement officials said that the officer was shot in the neck. According to an initial report, 21 people were reportedly shot but it was then determined that one of the victims suffering injuries did not receive a bullet wound.

This party and the subsequent shooting raised tough question about large events that violate Mayor Muriel E. Bowser’s order that prohibits gatherings of groups larger than 50 people.

Over 115 people have been killed in D.C. in 2020, which marks a 17 percent increase during the same timeframe in 2019.

D.C. is one of the most anti-gun jurisdictions and yet gun-related violence continues to occur. In addition, lax policing has contributed to the city’s perennial crime problems.

Local policymakers in urban centers across the nation will have to realize that their policies are making their jurisdictions much less desirable to live in. Unfortunately, progressivism clouds politicians’ better judgment on almost every occasion.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
