DC government just doesn't care


WILACarjackers put a gun to 73-year-old Doug Nelson’s head as he arrived home a little after midnight. The Vietnam veteran and grandfather of 11 had just finished his usual late shift at the U.S. Postal Service.

It would be days before police recovered the only vehicle that Doug and Nancy Nelson owned and relied upon.

And when they got it back, it would be returned with something extra.

“Over $2,000 worth of fines. Yes. Over $2,000 worth of fines,” Nancy Nelson said as we sat in their living room looking over a folder of paperwork and a pile of speeding tickets.

The DC government didn't back off their demand for payment until they realized a local news program was investigating.
