      Drug addicts and the mentally ill should be removed from society and stripped of civil liberties until they are proven to clean or stable on meds and be monitored. Only simpletons bleat about gun control laws as the end all to violence.

      • Emmanuel Goldstein

        It’s a shame that METRO is full of the mentally ill.

        • Chuck Morningwood

          It’s a shame that, as a country, we don’t provide enough care for our mentally ill.

          • TrollHuner

            It’s a shame that people continue to feed the geese which frequent Reston’s lakes, it encourages them to return and it just pollutes the water with their endless poo.

            It’s a shame people continue to feed the trolls which frequent Reston’s local news blog. it encourages them to return and it just pollutes the comments with their endless poo.

          • Chuck Morningwood

            Troll much?

      • The Donald

        Totally agree with Sheik we should remove 1 of 4, or however many crazies are out there. Enfact, prolly n33d to quadruple the size of DHS and also, create another higher level of government to watch the watchers cuz you never know. And hey, if we have some aggressives ones, by all means let’s send them to the Coca Cola Brigade we have trained and ready to go in Syria. Ad for the.meds, let’s turn that state of Colorado into a sanctuary and let them have their automatic rifles. Hold on, final thought, oh yeah, we need a wall. And when you get a chance take your pencils and mark X, ere.

    From the Silver Line you can make your way to the Twinbrook Metro station on the Red, or Gallery Place/Chinatown on the Yellow… Then walk to Hooters.

  • Headless Ned Stark

    Jon Snow may be gone, but Jon Targaryen may rise.
