There were helicopters overhead, multiple sheriffs vehicles on Summerwood Circle and Ashburn FarmRead MoreP arkway, and deputies on foot with automatic weapons on Summerwood Circle. I also saw 3 suspects stopped and their car was being searched. Allegedly, the sheriffs office was looking for a "hispanic male in a hoodie who had attempted to rob someone at knifepoint" last night in the area of Summerwood according to one of my neighbors and one of the deputies on the scence (I do not know this for a fact). I am really upset that the Sheriffs Dept. has not issued ANY press releases about what happened last night and in addition, no Loudoun alerts were issued. I called the non emergency number Sheriffs Dept number last night and all they would say was that it was an active investigation and to stay indoors. Don't you think that type of investigation warranted a Loudoun Alert????

I know. I was close with her. And no one knows anything. Not even her family

Horrible situation. Give the family privacy and be patient as law enforcement does their job.

This article is really deceiving and many parts are outright false. The 2011 bill SB 924 was anRead Moreamen ded bill that only had to do with improving policies related to infection prevention, disaster preparedness, and facility security of places like hospitals and nursing homes, not abortion clinics. But Delegate May DID vote for HB 1428 in 2011 and for HB 393 in 2010 which were bills that targeted abortion clinics, requiring them to meet standards of hospitals or full blown surgery centers. And many of those “standards” were construction related, such as making hallways wide enough for wheel chairs. The Virginia Health Department did NOT support this kind of legislation, but was bullied by then- Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who told the Board that his office would not defend them if they were ever sued. This new law made it impossible for many of the abortion clinics is to afford the required construction changes, so it effectively forced them to go out of business. So let’s not play games here and pretend that these bills were all about “health standards.” It was just a back-door way for the Republicans to close abortion clinics, and Joe May went along with it.

It really was a back door way of closing sub-standard abortion clinics. If you can't adhere to theRead Morer ules and regulations then the dumps should have been shut down furthermore they should never of been allowed to open. Why is it construed that it's bullying someone if you tell them you break the law of the land and we won't defend you, seems reasonable to me they could have waited until they were in need of legal help but Cuccinelli gave them a heads up, nice of him don't you agree?

The clinics were not sub-standard and they were already abiding by the Health Department’sRead Morerul es, and had been for years. The Virginia Assembly imposed NEW rules that they knew the clinics could not comply with, mostly construction-related.
