Loudoun County does not have police.

We have a Sheriff's Office, and the officers are deputies.

It's sad to hear that a once safe neighborhood has become violent. I was a resident of Sterling Park for 30 years, lived two street away from the accident and I remember when we didn't have to lock our doors and we knew everyone. I moved my family because we no longer felt safe and we embrassed by the up keep of our neighbors. They didn't speak english so we could tell them to mow their grass or not to park their cars on the front lawn...

The town has gone down hill and I am not sure why or who to blame. You could point the finger at immigrants, but why did they target Sterling and not other areas of Loudoun. Herndon has always had issues with violence but nothing like this... SAD!! Drive by shootings in a town 45 minutes away from a major city!!

I believe this makes 6 shootings in Sterling in as many days and I'd be willing to bet that's more than any 10 year period before the illegal aliens came.

I remember when Sterling Park was built. In fact, it was my first job in Northern Virginia. I helped build houses near the Safeway. Hard, very hard to believe this area which still had the barns and farm buildings standing when they started building is now a major eyesore and violence spawned by the federal government's lust to serve the cheap labor gang at the expense of American civilization. The people have to take back the government from those who want to destablize the country by importing violence and gangs so the ruling class can weaken democracy in order to maintain and drive down anyone who stands up against their dictatorship. Round up the illegals and I am sure a lot of disorder in our once peaceful communties will abate. Some people think a roundup cannot happen. The British invented the concentration camp in South Africa to imprison the Dutch farmers and their families. Barbed wire enclosures may be the only answer to increasing violence by illegals and gangs roaming the country.

I agree with you, but we need to hold the people with power accountable first. The illegals are a symptom.
Loudon county is the canary inthe mine. The country is seriosly ill.

More proof that "diversity" is not a strength. If you don't agree with me please submit proof (you can't because there is none -- it is just a slogan).

Like I have said before you could have all the thugs and ghetto dwellers switch places with the citizens of Potomac and nothing would change -- at least for the vermin -- the citizens of Potomac would clean up the ghetto area and turn it into a desirable place to live. The neighborhood is not to blame, it is the people that live there.

Ah yes!! I remember when S.P. was a quiet place,used live there myself when I was a young kid. Now? Forget it! It's the people that need to straighten up. For year and years the so-called leaders have ignored the growing menace,now look! It has turned around and bit them in the a&&!!

As far as I'm concerned, these "aliens" are in fact invading our nation while everyone just sits back and watches. Do something about it. Stop believing everything you see on TV about them. They are pussies. Confront any of them and they cower. Stand up, be a man and defend your country. Our troops are doing it for you overseas. We are responsible for holding down the fort over here. Either fight back or leave. Go to Canada with all the Frenchies if you're too scared to take a real stand.

I have to agree with you JAM. Some people move and rent their house to 10 or more illegals, which ruins the neighborhood for those who stay behind. What can we do?

What you can do is hop on the bandwagon and move your azz out when the neighborhood starts to go down. If you have to worry about shootings and folks breaking into your house on a daily basis then it is time to move.

You CAN have diversity with decent hard working citizens. Now when you try to diversify trailer park trash, ghetto folk and latino losers you come up with scum. Its not about black, white and latino. It is about good decent hardworking folk opposed to welfare, section 8, get what I can get for nothing folk. There is the difference.

Sterling has been going down hill for quite some time. It has become a melting pot for minorities. Crime cannot survive in the city so it is coming out to the suburbs and us hard working CITIZENS in Loudoun county now have to deal with the trash that comes our way.

Sterling has been going down hill for awhile. There is a lot of section 8 , latino trash in sterling. Thats where all of the gang activity happens. There are some hard working families there, but since they work so much no one has time to supervise and be home with the kids, therefore they find gangs and the cycle continues.

Giving up the neighborhood is how much of this started. When DC let Blacks move in; all the Whites moved to the suburbs. Now DC is changing - moving out the poor - and the Whites are moving back in.

People moved to Sterling because of how beautiful and remote the area is. Now, it's not the Blacks they're running from, it's the illegals. The answer to "what should we do?" is to get a backbone and figure out how to rid the neighborhood of the undesirables.

People need to hold their elected officials feet to the fire and demand that they do something about this mess. This means people need to get off their collected azzzzzz and call and write letters and generally make a pest of themselves to the powers that be. This includes the Fed's, state and local officials. You need to demand that they enforce current immigration laws among other things.

Excuse me! "Let the blacks move in" I'm sorry but we belong here also. I pay my taxes and work hard like you do, I hope. Brought a home in Sterling 12 years ago. Some of us are made up of your descendants also. All races can be dangerous if their heart is evil. Charles Mansion and Bk killer werent black. Evil has no race choice!
