Several businesses in Manassas area targeted in recent months.

How is this a "smash and grab" if no one took anything? This sounds like vandalism.
Greg Hambrick July 23, 2014 at 09:57 am
Thanks for the question, Natassia. Police are investigating the case as an attempted burglary.

The most expensive products (and the most often stolen) are usually the natural hair pieces andRead More wigs. I wonder if Sally's has learned to hide and lock those up at closing so they are not quickly found by would-be thieves.

Bill, how many times a day does someone tell you to pull your head out of your ass?

“HHS pays for and provides all services for the children through its network ofRead More grantees." Really? More than half of the children in my kids school speak a language other than English and two-thirds of the kids get free lunch and breakfast provided. HHS gets their money from tax payers, ergo we are all paying ALREADY. The best way to help is to reinforce the border, stop illegal immigration, change the laws to stop chain immigration and anchor babies by banning those caught here illegally from EVER obtaining citizenship. Then, we need to institute a comprehensive program to establish economic opportunities within the countries from which the people are fleeing. Across our country natural resources are being stretched to the limits. Some areas are running out of water. Every day hundreds of acres of farming are lost to development and landfills are quickly reaching capacity. How long will our environment be able to sustain a growing population that is outpacing the environments capacity to provide water, feed, shelter, and absorb their waste? Is it not better to export our knowledge to their home countries and work with them to solve the original challenges they are facing?

So when a women post of a nude so called "revenge porn" pic of a man, it will be dismissedRead More as a mistake of clicking the wrong button and nothing happens....

Did the girlfriend knowingly pose in the photograph?
Laurie McCabe July 22, 2014 at 12:23 pm
The law stipulates that it does NOT MATTER how the photograph is obtained once it is being used toRead More cause emotional distress. In other words, a piece-of-shit man is a piece-of-shit man.

Cats live at least 15 years. So long as there is no punishment or consequences for the irresponsibleRead More idiots that don't spay/neuter their pets then this problem will only continue to get worse.

Kinda makes you wonder just how many people have knock off there kids and pets this way.

This just proves that people are actually jealous of Justin Harris and that is why he is beingRead More attacked in the media. It is better jealously. The people of Georgia support you Justin Harris! Do not give up in the face of these lies!

Motorists receiving email noting unpaid tolls, but it's a hoax. Provided.
Patrick J July 10, 2014 at 07:30 am
Anybody can put those names in the from field. Check the headers of the email. That's a better wayRead More to verify. Bottom line, people should never respond to emails claiming non-payment. Always call to verify for sure.

Someone asked me this week to help them renew their passport. When they saw how long it would take,Read More they said they could go to a local place and get it the same day for $300. I asked the name, and she said "something Spanish." I told her it was probably a fraud and criminal. I wish I had gotten more info, but it was a place in Alexandria. I should call and ask if she got one!
Marie July 2, 2014 at 08:49 am
This is great. We get to shelter, feed, and keep healthy this guy for 12 years before we releaseRead More him. He's getting off easy. Think about how much damage this guy has caused: FAKE social security numbers - for getting government handouts???; identification cards - for VOTING illegally? There's no telling how much these fake documents have impacted us.
Special K July 2, 2014 at 10:02 am
Too bad deportation doesn't precede incarceration. a coslly way of dealing with illegally residentRead More culprits guilty of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Afterthought: Don't quite know what to do about similarly culpable chief executives and members of Congress.

Latest tragedy reveals another danger of leaving children unattended in cars.

It's called rear view mirrors and windows. I don't buy the story. I think criminal charges should beRead More in order.
Sandra Bishop June 20, 2014 at 11:31 am
I could see putting the child in the car, while it's running, for a/c, while unloading packages inRead More the trunk...and then returning the cart to the cart parking area. That would take a few minutes, not negligent or criminal. That said, was the child in a car seat? Shouldn't be able to reach the power window switch while in a car seat. Also should lock the power windows from the driver's panel, so kids in back can't open them.
Lorraine Terpening July 10, 2014 at 12:23 pm
I have roll up by hand windows. Always have!

Glad to see the outreach to the community. For people who want to sign up for their local emergencyRead More system, go to www.usnear.org. Thousands of US counties have some kind of emergency notification service, so this address (www.usnear.org) is a great way to find one page that can get to them all.

Kids are using this stuff like candy. I had a teen stay with us that I was trying to help do itRead More right in my own home...after countless times catching him, I kicked him out and I'm sure he's still doing it. He wouldn't get help, he refused to stop...I had to stop enabling him. We need help in this area!!! We need resources for these kids, safe resources that they won't feel threatened
Ex SF wife June 7, 2014 at 12:19 pm
Tracey Rosenberg, please ignore Joe Brewer. Some people only post to see it appear ~ not to giveRead More advice or encouragement. Please concentrate your efforts and energy on yourself and your daughter where it's effective and appreciated. My prayers are with you, your family and especially your daughter for a successful recovery. Hugs!
John Strother July 7, 2014 at 02:10 am
I have seen this in many young persons lately. If you don't get the crowd into rehab, those that getRead More into rehab just start over again once they reattach to their group. If you can keep them away from those that use it, it is a start. However most addicts will seek it out. No matter how many times they go through rehab.
