I hope nativeva1 still lives in Virginia. Maybe his racism and xenophobia plays better across the river than here in MoCo!

Hey nativeva1, hate to burst your bubble, but the assailant was actually a well-educated middle aged white man suffering from mental issues who had recently hitchhiked to DC from Seattle.

You mean it was Bill Gates from Seattle and not Homey or Julio?

The WaPo refuses to give a description of the suspect, so assume they're not white nor asian.

I do not reside in Maryland, but often notice how the local media and Wash Post communicates where crime happens. Today, it was:

"2 stabbed at Rockville Metro station"

"Two people were stabbed Saturday at the Rockville Metro station, authorities said."

*******************************************
Had this happened in Greenbelt, would have communicated:

""2 stabbed at PG County Metro station"

"Two people were stabbed Saturday at a PG County station, authorities said."
