  1. Thank you for reporting this information.

    My feeling is crime in the Bailey's Crossroads area has recently been rising both in number and the level of violence. I increasingly feel more needs to be done by the Fairfax County Police and by Fairfax County elected officials to ensure the safety of the residents of and visitors to Bailey's Crossroads.

    Step one is the arrest and incarceration of the perpetrators of these two most recent armed robberies and the recent murder. Step two is more open and public dialogue with Fairfax County Police and elected officials on what must and will be done to protect the safety of the people who call Bailey's Crossroads their home.

    Enough of the simplistic inane comments suggesting the answer to violent crime can be found at the U.S. Postal Service.

    1. As a retired US Postal Service employee I find your comment offensive. Sure we had a few shootings but things are better there than the Mason District.

    2. Gee, get a life!!! You need to be "returned to sender" for not paying attention. Glad you are retired so you have nothing better to do than misunderstand people's comments and express outrage. Geesh!

  2. crime is on the rise in the mason district there is no doubt. there are many reasons but a lot of this has to land at the feet of Penny Gross whose leadership has been failing us. she is too busy cutting deals with developers for things that only add to the problems and no time actually worrying about the citizens in the community and what she can do to help with crime, traffic, overcrowding and things that matter to us.

    1. Completely agree. Isn't she about at retirement age?

      However, cutting deals to developers while turning a blind eye to situated citizens could be the work of ANY politician.

  3. I say return the bumps to sender, better yet put them on a ship, sail it to the middle east and sink it.

    I agree, Mason is out of control, many nuisance crimes. More protection here for the criminals and the illegals than the people who pay taxes and want their local government leaders to take their safety seriously!

    2. Sadly, that is true, there is more protection around here for illegals and criminals. The taxpayer taking the shaft as usual. But let's build more schools so they can have more kids they can't afford while giving the Mr/Mrs. Taxpayer the finger.

  4. You're intuition is correct and cold, hard facts prove it. I fear Mason District has been abandoned by conservatives and overrun by progressives.

    1. AMEN! There needs to be a complete change in leadership and philosophy around here. The culmore model doesn't work and contributes greatly to the overcrowding of schools and hinders overall development. The Mason District has become the dumping ground and this is what you get. Does anybody honestly believe the crime rate in this area will subside without change. The writing is on the wall.

  5. the best thing to do is call the mason district office and complain and let them know you want your voice to be heard. they are tone deaf as no one tells them what is really going on out there!

  8. I've noticed more MS-13 gang graffiti in the area. I have taken pictures of some of them. Sad.
