Under normal circumstances, Brooks Drive is a relatively narrow and busy street with schools on one side and residences on the other--in this area. The planners of this event are obviously interested in drawing as large a crowd as possible in order to accomplish their purpose. What disaster will it take for someone to realize that this is dangerous for motorists, pedestrians and residents on Brooks Drive? It is even more amazing, that it is sponsored by the police department! Wouldn't citizens be safer if it were held at Suitland High?
