D.C. Police Chief Attacks Reporter on WTOP

Washington D.C. Chief of Police Cathy Lanier has lashed out at TWT Senior Op-ed writer Emily Miller for insisting that she picks good-news crime stats to hide the crime spike in Washington.

“First of all any reporter who doesn’t understand UCR by now and reports that way, I’m sorry, they just shouldn’t be a reporter,” Lanier told WTOP.

So Miller did what you’d expect — she wrote about it, saying, “the police chief attacked me viciously.” Miller told FishbowlDC, “I fully understand the difference between UCR and DC crime stats. If Chief Lanier saw something incorrect in our paper,  I think she’d ask for a correction. She did not. Instead she attacked my professionalism and intelligence on WTOP!”
