Capitol Police gets its appropriations directly from Congress.

Congress grilled Chief Dine about how he handled some events last year. For instance, the loony woman with the child in the car who was shot dead ramming the Capitol Hill steps. Some moron asked him why didn't they shoot out the tires. That member got scorned instead.

The article is flawed.

Capitol Police =/= Metro Police.

Capitol Police are federalized officers protecting designated area's within the Capitol. They are not the same as your local police department, which is what the whole 535 mayors comment is trying to convey.
