Coverage on Attorney General Visit

By Greg L | 27 October 2006 | 50th HOD District | 6 Comments

The Gainesville Times reports today on the visit by Virginia Attorney General Bob McDonnel to Manassas last week. I guess the AG likes Jackson Miller just a bit:

McDonnell told the audience he strongly supports Miller’s candidacy, adding, “If I could have designed a candidate with a computer, I couldn’t have come up with a better candidate than Jackson Miller.”

I guess you can call that an endorsement. But when you have a candidate who is a 14 year veteran of the county police department, a former Captain in the Army Reserves and a sitting Manassas City Councilman running against a liberal “social justice” activist with no legislative experience whatsoever, it’s not like that choice is a hard one. It shouldn’t, unless you happen to be the Washington Post and enamored with the idea of higher taxes and “marriage equality”.

Jackson Miller’s experience fighting MS-13 makes him a compelling candidate to join the Attorney General’s and Congressman Frank Wolf’s efforts to fight gang violence and sexual predators in Northern Virginia. He knows the enemy.

“They are vicious, brutal predators,” Miller said of gangs such as Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13. The first-term Manassas city councilman reminded the crowd that he was placed on an MS-13 hit list while serving as a police officer in Arlington County.

Jackson Miller is still in this fight, and has been continuously involved in the arrest of sexual predators and gang members in Prince William County. Because the rights of defendants need to be protected, and in some cases these crimes involve minors as victims, the details cannot always be reported. That is terribly unfortunate, as it should be easier to recognize how hard these police officers work to protect our communities. Some police officers, such as Jackson Miller, have the personal satisfaction of knowing they have rescued teenage girls from sexual predators but it would be more satisfying to be able to publicly recognize the results of the dedication and hard work which these officers do on behalf of our families and communities. While bad news is always shouted, sometimes the good news only gets a faint whisper.

We actually do have heroes in our midst, and now the oppportunity to send one more to the House of Delegates.

    I am glad to see that at least one of the local papers reported on this. To bad that most of their readers live outside of the 50th. The Manassas Journal Messenger has been feckless in its reporting as of late. The MJM said NOTHING about Susan Allen and Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) in Manassas to speak women voters. Nothing about the AG’s visit to Manassas to hold a press confrence to discuss ways his office is combatting gang violence. Nothing about Senator Allen’s visit to speak with members of the Old Town business community. Hell, this event was covered by a member of the FRENCH press, and the Houston Chronicle, but not the MJM. Maybe the MJM should change its name to “Everywhere Except Manassas Journal Messenger”, and we could call it the EEMJM. Sometimes their reporting is little better than a church newsletter or a supermarket circular.

    Manassas is at the top of everyone’s list EXCEPT the MJM’s. They’ed rather run fluff pieces about dance schools, tree carvings, haunted tours in Occoquan. I don’t blame the reporters. It is my understanding that they were at every event. I blame the editors. Pathetic, lazy bunch they are.

    If it weren’t for this blog, we wouldn’t get the real story. Even the other blogs (TC, NLS, VV) that discuss NoVA politics have dropped the ball here. Keep up the great work Greg.

    That is because the MJM is a liberal newspaper that aspires to be like the COMpost. They are not going to cover events such as these, because it does not fit their political agenda.

    The stance the MJM has taken on taxes and illegal immigration is pretty pathetic. They don’t mind raising taxes to pay for all the social costs associated with illegal immigration, but they disagree with spending money on law enforcement to combat illegal immigration.

    “heores” (see last paragraph)

    I shudder to think what some people might think this word means! ;-)

    “Some police officers have the personal satisfaction of knowing they have rescued teenage girls from sexual predators, such as Jackson Miller…”

    Greg, you might want change your syntax here. That could be interpreted as linking Jackson Miller with the sexual predators, not with the police officers, since the “such as Jackson Miller” part comes after the “sexual predators” part.

    Just my opinion, take it or leave it.

    Thanks again, this time to Melissa. Trying to knock out a quick post is obviously something I need some more practice on!
