You could always just drive like responsibleRead More people and keep your speed safe, there are thousands of people missing limbs or worse wishing they never were involved in a crash by either there own fault or the result of some balloon knot, Thanks for keeping us safe officers

Vincent Careatti, I see your posts and they are either about I-66 or Route 7. it seems you get offRead More the I-66 to get onto local roads when I-66 backs up. Does that make you want to use cut through and speed? Sounds like it to me. I want the police to keep an eye on you. Because of your cut through driving, you make it very unsafe for my neighbors children, the elderly and myself. Stay on your I-66 commuter traffic route and stay the heck out of places you don't belong. You are making things worst being there. You are the traffic many people don't want driving in their neighborhoods. You don't live there, don't visit or do business there, so you just don't belong there.

Part of the problem is the length of the traffic cycles. Miss the light and one can end up waiting 5Read More minutes to get going again, and in some cases have to go through multiple cycles to get through the intersection. In our society of impatience, people start doing other things like texting and reading email, then continue to finish up what they are doing once the traffic moves again. I see that every morning that I drive to work.

All this is simply proof that the regions police departments are not doing their jobs. All policeRead More officers are responsible to traffic duty when on duty. Most have an attitude to justify not doing this responsibly. Yet the death toll and injury toll is rising in every region across the nation. The last year's death toll was over 43,000. With serious injury's in the hundreds of thousands! And Fairfax is no exception. Most police officers think that they are supposed to get paid overtime on what is called 'auxilary' traffic duty assignments on $overtime$. And the dispatch offices are in on it as well. They get thousands of calls daily with traffic complaints directly involving improper Motor Vehicle Operator driving in any given area thru out Fairfax and most go ignored. Yet someone will call in a redundant call by comparison and the patrolling officers on duty will respond to it instead of the thousands involving even reckless driving reports! Bottom line? It is such gross negligence it is simply criminal in and upon itself! Emails. Written letters. Phone call reports about same being received about Motor Vehicle Operator small and big infractions and what is being done about it? A patrol officer will be sent out to investigate a kitty cat being stuck in a tree instead by dispatch, backed up by the on duty officer of the shift? And what is the departments sworn duty and oat to office and position? "To Serve and Protect". And what major subject issue is killing and injuring people more than any other? The Motor Vehicle Operator.

Yeah, your title could use re-wording.

So if he "Allegedly" did this, why would you then call the individual that was taken toRead More the hospital the "Victim". Say perhaps the person whom was hurt (and friends), "Allegedly" were attempting to assault Mr. Keihn and he was protecting himself, and wounded the Alleged "Victim". I have heard from a pretty good source the aggression came from the 21 year old and his friends, rather than what has been reported. Common sense leads ME to believe that the individual whom started this altercation by blocking traffic then went to inform his friends. Then confronted Mr. Kiehn as a group. I find this much easier to believe than one individual attacking someone with a whole group of friends around them. Especially a 40 year old man. We all know a group of 21 year olds whom have been drinking are far more likely to resort to fisticuffs than a 40 year old man by himself. This is my opinion, based on what I've been told. I would just like to point out the article is very biased. As you say allegedly then call the second party a victim. My point is if the second party was the aggressor than he can't be the victim. These things will all come out in the wash and we as they say "Shall See".

There are two stories to everything. If you choose to pick a side you must be friends with the 40Read More gentleman. Either party is wrong. The kids should have kept their mouth shut. I would think the 40 gentleman would know better than to just walk away from the situation and realize they are a bunch of drunk disrespectful kids no need to waist time or words on them. In the end the kids should know and show more respect and the gentleman should have never bashed the kid in the face sending him to icu. With this being said he should of just walked/drove away from the disrespectful kids instead of taking action.

12 deaths in Boulder, CO last year due to Heroine overdose...Colorado has a drug problem not a gunRead More problem...But this is what the CommieCRats zeroed in on last year...Passing some of the stupidest, demeaning, unenforceable, frivolous gun laws ever to disgrace this once great state of Colorado...I swear those Senators were all high on drugs when they presented this anti-gun legislation to Gov. (C)hickenpooper who signed these bills into law without even reading them...A common trait amongst Democrats now days!

@ oldgringo, where is the relevance to the content of this article? I guess a common trait amongstRead More Republicans is to try and connect gun rights to just about everything. Take a class in anger management!

Um, wait... What? Did he just blame the victims and not the punks who commit the crime?Read More "Metro Transit Police Chief Ron Pavlik told the station he believes the increase is because more people are standing on station platforms or aboard trains transfixed by their smartphones."

If this is a pedophile let's put him down. Only ONE way to handle a pedophile and that is toRead More terminate him. Otherwise, when he is released he'll wait for another opportunity. They are not human.
