Flat screen TVs targeted in Fairfax

By Washington Post editors

Fairfax County police are battling a rash of thefts of flat screen televisions, WUSA 9 reports.

Burglars have hit 17 homes near the Kingstowne apartments in the last two months. The thieves have thrown blankets over the sets -- like moving men -- and walked out of the homes with items.

Police say they've also taken Xbox and Wii gaming systems and a couple of semi-automatic handguns.

You could have said semi-manual handguns ... or just handguns. Was the "semi-automatic" really necessary?

Yet another reason to keep my "ancient" 5-year old, heavy, round-tubed TV...

Why in the world do these people have "a couple semi-automatic handguns" in a location blatant enough that someone stealing a TV just picks it up and walks out with it! They should be locked in a gun safe.

According to some, crime don't happen in Fairfax, Virginia, but only in the District of Columbia.

Duh, crime is everywhere in this country.
