Washington Post: Police struggle to enforce social distancing, mask orders as mass gatherings flout rules. “When a crowd assembled in Oxon Run Park in Southeast Washington for a concert last month, residents accused authorities of ignoring violations of the mayor’s orders restricting mass gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic. A week ago, another gathering in the District brought attention locally and beyond after gunfire erupted and 22 people were shot, one fatally. People again demanded to know why a crowd was allowed to grow into the hundreds, and even the police chief questioned whether his officers should have broken it up.”
