‘VAMPIRE’ SERIAL CHILD KILLER WHO ESCAPED FROM PRISON IS BEATEN TO DEATH BY VIGILANTES

From MSN.com

"...The statement described some of the alleged murders in horrifying detail, saying Wanjala “squeezed dear life out of the innocent children.” In one case, where the victim was identified as 12-year-old Purity Maweu, police wrote: “The young girl was kidnapped from Kiima Kimwe in Machakos and her blood sucked by the killer, before being left for dead.”

Authorities said that Wanjala’s victims, all aged between 12 and 13 years old, were “stupefied using a white substance in powder and liquid form, which [they] were either forced to drink or sprayed with before being executed.” The statement also claimed that Wanjala informed detectives that he “derived a lot of pleasure from..." Jamie Ross for The Daily Beast

WHY A BLOG, NAMED CAPICOSTIA?

By Edgar Miraculous Dyer

Capitol Hill + Anacostia = Capicostia?!

In the past, I've described living here, in Southeast's Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor (region between historic Anacostia and Capitol Hill - Penn Branch, Fairfax Village, Greenway, Westover, Twining, Hillcrest, the Randall Highlands, etc), ..as feeling different, than living in other parts of Wards Seven and Eight - known here, as 'East o'the River'.

The snootiest (most bougzey) of us express feeling unfairly characterized, as less intellectually sophisticated and less cultured (appreciative of history and the arts), than our Capitol Hill neighbors. Others, less pretentious, like myself, understand that we have shared the same civic struggles, as have bordering neighborhoods, whose crime and drug problems regularly dominate local newcasts. However, ..we also feel that Downtown (DC Government) and the Media unfairly lumps us in, with those troubled communities.


There is a culture-angst in the air, here, that only we can understand. Bougzy or populist, we do appreciate the distinction ..of being recognized, as our own singular, unique thing, apart from Anacostia or Capitol Hill. When D.C. Government's Great Streets Initiative christened us 'the Pennsylvania Avenue Southeast Corridor', though no one, here, calls it that, in conversation, ..we accepted it.

So, why a blog, named 'Capicostia'? Less letters to type.

What is the symbolic meaning of Marvel Comics' Incredible Hulk wrestling hedonistic Wonder Woman of the Eternals, Sersi the Terrible, two titans-in-green, ..locked in cataclysmic, urban conflict?! Absolutely nothing.

Capicostia...less letters to type. That's it. The End.

A SMARTER, MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS WAY, OFF 295...HOME TO EAST O'THE RIVER!

by Edgar Miraculous Dyer

Ward Seven and the Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor (region between Capitol Hill and Anacostia) needs an off-ramp, from 295 South onto East Capitol Street - East.

Presently, folks travelling on 295 South, heading (or returning) to our Corridor neighborhoods, have TWO wasteful, environmentally destructive options. One: get off 295 and take pothole-ridden East Capitol, over the Anacostia River, a mile around RFK Stadium and back over the river, to get to a tiny loop that spits you out, a block from Minnesota Avenue, ..in Fort Dupont. The other: stay on 295 South and ride it [God help you, in rush hour traffic!], all the way, nearly two, potholey miles, ..down to Pennsylvania Ave. The resulting air pollution, clutter of traffic, wasted time, commuter stress and wear and tear on East Capitol Street (East and West) and that mile-plus on 295 South ..is utterly ridiculous.

It's an environmentally wasteful, mile-plus haul on 295, from East Capitol South, down to our Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor.

Still another option, ..which I consider a non-option, if only because it's so literally backward and insane: take a ramp off 295 and onto a backstreet (the very, very back) of East River Park ..and wiggle and troubleshoot through several quiet, narrow, nondescript streets, until you accidentally come out onto Benning Road, near the PEPCO plant, ..after which you cross a decrepit, potholey bridge, over a railroad ..and down into so-called [Are you serious?] ..Downtown Ward Seven, which is a mess. The resulting noise, traffic and wear and tear on East River Park is entirely disruptive, socially unjust (if we have to go there) ..and just plain wrong - a non-option, when a little smart planning, from District Department of Transportation (DDOT) can make this, so much better.

Hard-working, hump-busting East River Park - Southeast, folks - deserves its well-earned peace and quiet. Nobody came to East River Park, from a country club ..or wearing a tiara. East River Park folks work! They deserve better.

We can do better, than this. We can do so much better ..and smarter.

One smart loop from 295 onto East Capitol Street revolutionizes our brutal, fossil fuel-burning, traffic jam-causing commute to the Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor ('Capicostia') ..and surrounding Penn Branch, Hillcrest, Fort Dupont, Fairfax Village, Twining City, Dupont Park, Pope Creek and Greenway. Yes - that is half the Corridor! As I said, "Revolutionary!" Furthermore, a 295-to-East Capitol loop displaces no area wildlife. [Join the discussion, on Twitter.]

Let me tell you ..I am a proud Brancher. We of Penn Branch, Dupont Park and Hillcrest ..LOVE our opossum, deer, groundhogs, hawk, rabbits, coyote, fox, bobcat and (not so much) seasonal mountain lion, ..all hopping in and out of our yards, all hours of the day and night! We wouldn't advocate something that would further displace or harm our wildlife, from their natural habitats, ..for all the money in the world.

Without this ramp, from from 295 South onto East Capitol Street - East, ..the so-called Downtown Ward Seven, with its one way in and one way out, ..is a joke and an insult to our intelligence. We need this, and the District Department of Transportation can make it happen. Go, DDOT!

Champ the Ramp, my friends!

Southeast Planet Fitness And Hillcrest Shoppers, Rocked By Murder At Penn Branch Center

by Edgar Miraculous Dyer

A woman was murdered, in front of  Planet Fitness, on the lower level of the Southeast Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor's newly renovated Penn Branch Center. This happened, right here, in Seven Bee. It happened, right here, in what the people, Downtown, call our Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor. This happened, in our home.

Shouldn't that mean something to us?

Penn Branch...heart of Southeast's Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor. Nikeisha Thomas was killed, on the lower level.

Someone looked at our calm, tree-lined streets - our newly, renovated Penn Branch Center - and felt safe, as we all have, ..for a while. Filled with hope for better health and new possibilities for herself, someone was inspired to join our Planet Fitness, on the lower level of Penn Branch Center. I think about that, about how safe and assured we all feel, here, in Penn Branch, most of the time, ..and I feel connected to her, in some small way...

Like a neighbor.

That doesn't make much sense - I know - but, it means something to me.

Our prayers and good will go with the family of Ms. Thomas and to her loved ones, wherever they are. May my God, in His infinite mercy, bless and comfort them, ..wherever they go.

God bless you, too, Capicostia.

Nikiesha Thomas shot in head, killed in Planet Fitness parking lot in Southeast DC (msn.com)
