Seems to be a disturbing trend. 99% of all Robbery's and Burglary's in Manassas seem to be comitted by Mexicans. Is anyone checking on their immigration status after their arrest? Or is that now considered Raciest? Criminals are Criminals! Personally, I don't speak spanish, but I do know one word and I am LEGALLY armed. If you are found milling around inside my house in the middle of the night, the last thing you will hear is "Adios!"
