    Hope the victim makes a full recovery.

    Blade violence in Loudoun is a massive problem, it’s a shame that there isn’t a “sensible” solution, other than punishing the criminals.

    I wonder how soft Loudoun’s CA will go with plea. We know from the past year and a half that she has no interest in aggressively prosecuting violent crime.

    If they’re known to each other it should be a short investigation.
