Councilmember Trayon White held a press conference following a video of MPD officers using excessive force in arrests.

On October 15th, Councilmember White received numerous calls from the community about Metropolitan Police Officers (MPD) using excessive force to arrest two residents, who will be referred to as "TJ" and "TC," on Stanton Road, SE.

MPD officers reported to the location following a report of rounds of gunfire. Councilmember White arrived at the scene around 10:45 pm to follow up on a disturbance.

"There is no doubt MPD officers used excessive force to make an arrest. The cell phone footage clearly shows an officer slamming TJ into a fence before throwing him to the ground and kicking him. The video also shows a second individual, TC, being forcibly taken into custody by officers," stated Councilmember White in a press statement.

Councilmember White spoke to the families and held a press conference in front of MPD headquarters located at 300 Indiana Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001.

Councilmember Trayon White had the opportunity to meet the brilliant young minds at Johnson Middle School.

WASHINGTON - Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White ([link removed]) and community activists criticized members of the D.C. Police Department Friday for using what White described as "unacceptable" and "excessive use of force" during an arrest ([link removed]) this week.

The altercation between several officers and a group of men was captured on a cellphone camera ([link removed]) Thursday night in Southeast D.C.

In the video, which has since gone viral on social media, an officer can be seen pushing a man against a short fence. The man’s back bends backward before he's hurled to the ground. Community members can be heard shouting at the officers, accusing them of breaking the man’s back.

As another man grapples with police, a voice can be heard wailing in the background. It’s not clear who was screaming. Police told FOX 5 that the two men involved, and the officers sustained injuries.

A new bill in the D.C. Council would open up the city to multiple mobile sports betting apps, effectively undoing the virtual monopoly currently held by the D.C. Lottery and its widely criticized GambetDC app.

The measure, authored ([link removed]) by Councilmember Elissa Silverman (I-At Large), would also terminate the city’s current sole-source contract with Intralot — the Greek gaming giant that operates the city’s lottery and developed the Gambet app — when it’s up for renewal in 2024, and require that any future lottery and sports betting contract be competitively bid.

Silverman’s bill addresses some of the simmering frustrations with GambetDC and the controversial sole-source contract that the D.C. Council granted Intralot in 2019 to develop the sports betting app ([link removed]) for the D.C. Lottery.
