    Where is this in proximity to the section 8 housing? It appears this is the section of housing near the Safeway in South Reston, correct?

      There is no short, simple answer to your question. “Section 8” is shorthand for a program wherein the federal government pays part of the rent and qualified low income individuals pay a portion. It can be anywhere…apartment buildings, condos, single family homes. And it is not necessarily entire buildings or complexes. In fact, typically it is only a small percentage. The folks next door to you might be receiving Section 8 assistance and you would not know.

      I don’t want to sound preachy, but the only thing that distinguished a Section 8 recipient from you and me is their level of financial resources. Certain types of crime are more typical in low-income areas. Not surprisingly, the victims are often Section 8 recipients. Likewise, the financial advisor who is ripping you off probably does not live there, and is not stealing from them. Those crimes don’t make it to the daily police blotter.

    It’s probably those Indians living over in The Springs.

    There is subsidized housing all around the area, some of it is on the back end of the Reston Town Center. This is not the cause of crime, and I’ve never seen any evidence that the criminals come from these homes. To stereotype is just a reason to hate, and once again xenophobic.
