Gang-Related Crime Falls in Fairfax

According to this article from Saturday's Metro section, gang crimes dropped more than 32 percent from 2005 to 2006. Local officials say that the news shows that a pro-active approach to combating gangs is working. Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerald E. Connolly (D) said the decline is evidence that the county's approach to crime and illegal immigration is the correct one; to focus on illegal behavior rather than on attempts to enforce federal immigration laws.
