ehind the gleaming
monuments of our nation's capitol lies a darker Washington, DC, a place where people's
lives take ominous turns, where those outside the circles of politics and power face the
even more powerful demons of life.
D.C. DarkSide examines this darkness in a
frank, often brutal, way. The stories you find here are true, the facts
verified as best we can. In some cases, people allow us to use their names.
In others, they don't. It's their choice..
