    Chief Brown and the liberal members of my Town Council in Leesburg continues to say that the gangs are only an “issue” as they are blinded. After watching a lengthy video last year, from an hour long meeting at the Leesburg Police Station highlighting the status of local NoVa gangs, I’m at least glad to know that Sheriff Chapman and the Northern Virginia Regional Gang Task Force are taking matters very seriously due to the rapid increase in membership and serious criminality. If we could only get our primary leaders (McAuliffe and Obama or whomever the next President will be) to take matters more seriously, perhaps this type of situation will be minimized. Sadly, my Town has no proactive approach towards combating gangs, illegal aliens (most Latino members are reported to be), etc.; however, there is a resource officer in the high schools, which is a start, but relatively ineffective as the gangs start recruiting younger.
