Statement from Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj Statement Regarding Graffiti Espousing Hate in South Riding
"Without a doubt, Loudoun County is made better and stronger by the diversity of our residents. This weekend, our community was attacked by individuals who chose to graffiti the South Riding shopping center with vile and hateful markings. This public display of hate speech is sadly another reminder that there are some who will choose to try and divide our community, or worse threaten our safety. The intentional attack on specific, marginalized groups within our county will not be tolerated.
We are a united community of one, and as such we must remain vigilant to protect our values and freedoms as Loudouners. If you have information on this incident and those responsible, please reach out to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1919 and assist us in bringing them to justice. My office is committed to protecting our diverse communities and will continue to fight against racial, ethnic and religious hate wherever it rears its poisonous head."
