Looky looky what the Democrats have done for (to) Prince William county.

Between the far left democrats, the socialist, and the illegal alien supporting representatives it won’t be much longer till the county catches up to socialist California. Just sayin


The crime rates for PWC 20-25 years ago when the county was mostly white are higher than they are today. How does it feel to be ignorant? Just sayin.


20-25 years ago when the county was predominantly white, the crime rate was higher than today. Any other baseless hate you want to continue to spread? Just sayin.


Crime rates are misleading because of the growth in population and change in demographics. It has nothing to do with ethnicity nor race and everything to do with socioeconomic status.


Crime rates are a ratio of number of crimes to size of population. The county has grown, is more diverse, and crime rates are down. What’s misleading about that?
