    So much violent crime in Loudoun, and the (D)s solution is to limit law-abiding residents’ ability to protect themselves and their families.

    And let’s not forget our criminal-first CA, Buta Biberaj, who never stopped being a defense lawyer.

    It’s sad to read about this mugging. Sterling is such a great place to live. It’s awful to think residents might feel unsafe while going about their daily activities. Just one word of caution: I still have concerns about the Sheriff’s Office publicizing the putative ethnicity of a suspect. Many folks are stereotyped as being of a specific ethnicity when they’re not. Unless a suspect is wearing a sweatshirt stating “I am Hispanic” (or there’s a similar definitive reason), it’s best for the Sheriff’s Office to refrain from such speculation. Happy Hanukkah Loudoun!

      You’d prefer no eyewitness or victim information to be provided to the public?

      And just so I understand… if a white person, during the commission of a violent crime, were to wear a “I am Black” sweatshirt, you’d want the description of the perpetrator to be “black?”

      Good grief.
