Lake Anne Shocker: MS-13 Gang Graffiti Migrates North


This is one of several examples of MS-13 graffiti which appeared around Lake Anne over the weekend, this one near Hickory Cluster. Will Sought After North Reston be next?

According to a tipster, the Reston Association has already dispatched people to paint it over. That'll teach those gangs to use spray paint with the clearly unapproved color of "electric blue."


  1. Clever, another reference to DRB color scheme... You need new material.

  2. Makes me very nervous... I live in the Lake Anne area -- never really had any issues... I pray the police are aware and can do something to coral these folks..

  3. I passes this along to the police. Most likely there are some stupid kids who think MS13 is cool.

  4. Maybe it's hip and edgy 'rad art' advertising for the M&S Grill? ;-)

  5. A family walks into a talent agency. It's a father, mother, son, daughter and dog. The father says to the talent agent, "We have a really amazing [DRB color palette]. You should represent us."

    The agent says, "Sorry, I don't represent family acts. They're a little too cute."

    The mother says, "Sir, if you just see our act, we know you would want to represent us."

    The agent says, "OK. OK. I'll take a look."

    Well first off me and my family walk on stage, as naked as the day we were born, we don't hang around and I...


  6. Don't worry Sought After North Reston -- when Stream Restoration moves in, the gang bangers move on. Too much scrutiny. And from what I hear, eventually even North Reston's streams will be rehabbed...

    Maybe they'll move to some community less forward thinking, where they don't restore streams.

    A-HA! I knew the gangs were behind me never getting any hot water anymore in Charter Oak! :-P They're bleeding up over the Toll Road and attacking we peasants in Central Reston now too! The horror! What's next? Will they slash the tires on that little golf cart thingy that the leasing agents joyride around on?! AHHHHH!!!

    Oh, did the locals forget to tell you that we're opening a new franchise in Middle Earth? We call in South Reston del Norte, Gringos.

  9. The crime-copter seems to be in frequent use here in south reston. Will we have to share with the north? Will the north need their own copter?
