FYI: he is not the owner. Kristina Bouweri is the owner of Reston Limousine. And Reston Limousine isRead More actually located in Loudoun.

Reston Mom July 23, 2014 at 11:51 am
The headline is correct but the very first sentence of the article is misleading; it reads as ifRead More this man owns Reston Limosine which is not correct. As owner of Reston Limosine, Kristina Bouweri has been an upstanding community member who makes many in-kind donations to good causes. Please consider revising the beginning of the article to clarify.

So when a women post of a nude so called "revenge porn" pic of a man, it will be dismissedRead More as a mistake of clicking the wrong button and nothing happens....

Did the girlfriend knowingly pose in the photograph?
Laurie McCabe July 22, 2014 at 12:23 pm
The law stipulates that it does NOT MATTER how the photograph is obtained once it is being used toRead More cause emotional distress. In other words, a piece-of-shit man is a piece-of-shit man.

Kinda makes you wonder just how many people have knock off there kids and pets this way.

This just proves that people are actually jealous of Justin Harris and that is why he is beingRead More attacked in the media. It is better jealously. The people of Georgia support you Justin Harris! Do not give up in the face of these lies!

How is this going to reduce the number of crashes? Call it what it is a money grab thanks to theRead More phony republicans who voted for the biggest tax increase in Virginia history, you know Tag Greason and the good old boys!
Bill Zaccagnino July 11, 2014 at 01:56 pm
The article mentions 600 crashes involving these vehicles. What is the statistic within the 600Read More that clarifies who is at fault in the crashes? Too often 4-wheel vehicles drive carelessly and don't take 2-wheel motor vehicles into account or treat them as if they have less right to be on the road than 4-wheel motor vehicles. I ride a motorcycle and I know I need to be extra careful when doing so. The unfortunate truth is that whether I am at fault or not, I will be the loser in a crash.

Anybody can put those names in the from field. Check the headers of the email. That's a better wayRead More to verify. Bottom line, people should never respond to emails claiming non-payment. Always call to verify for sure.

Someone asked me this week to help them renew their passport. When they saw how long it would take,Read More they said they could go to a local place and get it the same day for $300. I asked the name, and she said "something Spanish." I told her it was probably a fraud and criminal. I wish I had gotten more info, but it was a place in Alexandria. I should call and ask if she got one!
Marie July 2, 2014 at 08:49 am
This is great. We get to shelter, feed, and keep healthy this guy for 12 years before we releaseRead More him. He's getting off easy. Think about how much damage this guy has caused: FAKE social security numbers - for getting government handouts???; identification cards - for VOTING illegally? There's no telling how much these fake documents have impacted us.
Special K July 2, 2014 at 10:02 am
Too bad deportation doesn't precede incarceration. a coslly way of dealing with illegally residentRead More culprits guilty of aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Afterthought: Don't quite know what to do about similarly culpable chief executives and members of Congress.

With Obama gathering our phone info and listening to our conversations, why can't the governmentRead More find these people? Also - if people are here LEGALLY, they wouldn't have to worry about deportation threats.

Marie. The government does not care. They consider them more democrat voters.

The IRS is an abusive, criminal beast; it needs to be abolished, period. Replace it with a flat tax.
Latest tragedy reveals another danger of leaving children unattended in cars.

It's called rear view mirrors and windows. I don't buy the story. I think criminal charges should beRead More in order.
Sandra Bishop June 20, 2014 at 11:31 am
I could see putting the child in the car, while it's running, for a/c, while unloading packages inRead More the trunk...and then returning the cart to the cart parking area. That would take a few minutes, not negligent or criminal. That said, was the child in a car seat? Shouldn't be able to reach the power window switch while in a car seat. Also should lock the power windows from the driver's panel, so kids in back can't open them.

I have roll up by hand windows. Always have!

At Great Falls, don't you check in if you're going to Kayak? Or is that just for rock climbers? IRead More would think he would have stopped by to inform someone there that he was okay but lost his equipment.
El June 16, 2014 at 11:36 am
He should be charged the full cost of the futile search. What a waste of time and funds!

Kids are using this stuff like candy. I had a teen stay with us that I was trying to help do itRead More right in my own home...after countless times catching him, I kicked him out and I'm sure he's still doing it. He wouldn't get help, he refused to stop...I had to stop enabling him. We need help in this area!!! We need resources for these kids, safe resources that they won't feel threatened
Ex SF wife June 7, 2014 at 12:19 pm
Tracey Rosenberg, please ignore Joe Brewer. Some people only post to see it appear ~ not to giveRead More advice or encouragement. Please concentrate your efforts and energy on yourself and your daughter where it's effective and appreciated. My prayers are with you, your family and especially your daughter for a successful recovery. Hugs!

I have seen this in many young persons lately. If you don't get the crowd into rehab, those that getRead More into rehab just start over again once they reattach to their group. If you can keep them away from those that use it, it is a start. However most addicts will seek it out. No matter how many times they go through rehab.
