Sharon, you're full of crap
Letters to the Editor
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is committed to justice
Then why hasn’t the board ever spoken out against the cop’s killings or ruining people’s careers and why did it take you almost two years to speak out againstthe latest killing?
Regarding the Jan. 20 editorial “Secrecy takes a hit”:
Fairfax County’s positive relationship between its police department and the community has fostered trust in public safety, a major factor in keeping our crime rate low.
My God Sharon do you see what’s going on around you? If we show you money will you notice? The Fairfax County police department is reviled across the nation, a US Senator from a different state had to step in to get our local government to act in the Geer killing. And the crime rate is low because of the citizens who abide by the law, not because of the cops who work under a quota to arrest people for crimes.
The John Geer case has been painful for everyone involved. Policies for handling police-involved incidents, which served us well for decades, were inadequate in this complicated situation.
There is no way in hell you’re getting away with that one. The polices served the cops and the board of supervisor well Sharon, not the people.
The lengthy delays are unacceptable.
It took you almost two years and federal intervention by the US Senate to make you do something.
The Board of Supervisors called for an independent review to initiate changes to policies and procedures for releasing information and for working with multiple levels of investigative bodies while ensuring that its policies do not jeopardize criminal or civil investigations.
It took you almost two years and federal intervention by the US Senate to make you do something….it also cost the lives of three people and ruined one teacher’s career.
I asked Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring (D) to assist with identifying resources and expertise for this review. I am committed to a quick turnaround and resulting policy changes.
It took you almost two years just to do that much and in doing that you are underlying the point that our local government is so corrupt and self-serving that it can’t and won’t do the right thing on its own.
“Additionally, the Fairfax County Police Department is reviewing its use-of-force and critical incident response policies, training and practices.”
Which means the vampire is guarding the blood bank….Sharon, Sharon, Sharon…you are dumb, but are you so dumb that you actually believe the cops will investigate themselves and find themselves guilty of anything? According to the New York Times, the Fairfax County Cops don’t report the numbers of people they shoot to the FBI and you think those same guys are going to come up with an honest assessment of themselves?
This review, conducted by an outside firm, is led by an oversight board established by the internal auditor to ensure objectivity. The review should be completed in March.
The theme here is secrecy and there you go being secretive. You are a dumb person. Who is doing the review? What’s the firm’s name and back ground? Who is the internal auditor? How did he get that job? What does he know about police practice?
The judicial system’s role is to interpret what happened on the day of the shooting, whether charges should be filed and whether an officer is guilty or innocent of a crime. The Board of Supervisors has taken the steps needed to ensure its policies allow for justice to be fairly and swiftly served.
The board of supervisor has never, not one time, ever, in anyone of the three killing of unarmed citizens by the Fairfax County Police, that the cops were wrong for what they did and that they are out of control….never, not once. You’re a bunch of cowards.
