    It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,

    A beautiful day for a neighbor,

    Would you be mine?

    Could you be mine?

    Won’t you be my neighbor?

    But, but, but …where’s the information about the race of the victims?

    • Not_White

      Chuck, I’ll give you one guess…

  • MJay

    Which businesses were robbed? Did you ask?

    • Karen Goff

      FCPD almost never releases that info. Only the block and street.

        Well, let’s see, 2900 block of Centreville Rd, I’m guessing it was the Exxon station, and in Clocktower there are probably only a few places open at 11pm. A journalist doing journalisty things could call and ask. There may even be a human interest story in there somewhere…


      There is also a place at Clocktower that is basically a bar but has pool tables and karaoke. Point being, open late. These two incidents took place near or after midnight. A real reporter would go over to the neighborhood and ask around.


    That area of Herndon is like a barrio along the Texas border. Day laborers clogging parking lots, hanging out. It is not safe over there. Oh yea, we are a Sanctuary County.

      It’s horrible. Between that & South Reston it’s like a 3rd world Country

    I begin each day hoping the comments section will become a place for civil and constructive discussion.

    So let’s see, apparently the definition of “ignorant and small brained” is “those who notice and comment upon obvious truths”. And far from being the self-evident purpose of a community forum to comment upon obvious truths that profoundly affect the community, it is somehow “sad” and “uncivil” and “unconstructive” to do so.
