It is not easy to go against public opinion or tell elected officials what they do not want to hear. But Chief Deane did just that. He explained to the Prince William officials and crowded Manassas Hearing the expense and impracticality of of their anti-immigrant ordinances. Doug Landau was not alone in his praise and thanks for this courageous and upright law enforcement officer. A line of people started forming quickly around Prince William County police Chief Charlie Deane after the screening of the film “9500 Liberty.” As a former prosecutor, Landau appreciates Chief Deane’s service and courage and he hopes that the Chief is able to serve and guide Prince William County for many years to come.
