Apologies for me not posting this when it happened, so it’s not news to many: but all charges have been dropped against the DC9 employees that were accused of aggravated assault in relation to the death of Ali Ahmed Mohammed. This looks pretty bad for MPD, in my mind, they shouldn’t have charged anyone with anything until more details came out. Of course, MPD says this doesn’t mean that the (now former) employees won’t be charged again once the Medical Examiner report comes out.
Also, there were some rumors via their Facebook page that they would reopen this weekend: however, as I reported on DCist: it’s not so. They just did a bad job being clear on their page – they were promoting the opening of Red Palace on H Street NE (same owners).
