      Under our current County Attorney (the progressive Soros funded Biberaj) he will be let out on the minimum bond, never tried as an adult and she will claim he is just a poor misunderstood child who meant no harm. Besides she is too busy prosecuting parents who protest the school board to focus on crime. Even Phyliss Randall (no right winger) has accused Biberaj of being totally tone deaf to victims of domestic abuse.

    We desperately need more gun laws.
    Especially one to prevent attempted murder. And to keep minors from possessing firearms.

    I cannot wait for Buta “Never prepared for court” Biberaj to hand this violent criminal a gift basket full of lollipops and teddy bears.

    Notice how criminals don’t pay much attention to gun laws? Now we can only hope Ms. Biberaj remembers that attempted murder is a crime. Perhaps her docket won’t be crowded with really important trespass cases and she can give this matter proper attention. Loudoun used to be a safe place but something has happened in the last few years.
