    I’m sure our Soros funded DA will plead the charges down to an aggressive panhandling fine.

    Another job well done by the LCSO.

    Notice this violent criminal had his finger inside the trigger guard. Zero concern for anyone’s well-being. This could have easily ended in tragedy.

    But for sure, Loudoun’s CA will make nearly all of it go away.

    We deserve better.
