Lucy’s back. Board of Supervisors Questions police action and demands less secrecy.

Fairfax County police spokes “woman” Lucy Caldwell. …. you remember Lucy…she was the one who threw a fit with a local reporter when the reporter dared to question citizens reaction to yet another murder by the Fairfax County Police……well, Lucy and her hair trigger temper and contempt for a free press  are back on the job as the police information officer.  Here’s the information Lucy gave out to the media concerning this week’s questionable shooting of a Mount Vernon area citizen.

What is the dead man’s name?

I’m not releasing that information

How many cops were at the scene of the shooting? 

I’m not sure.

How many were inside the residence when the shooting occurred?

I’m not sure.

How many shots were fired?

I can’t say.

What is the victim name?

I’m not going to reveal that information.

Members of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors expressed deep concerns of a second questionable shooting of a citizen by the Fairfax County Police in less than a month and over the lack of transparency by the cops in releasing even the most mundane information about the killing.

Naw…the last part didn’t happen.  Pretty much our elected officials are far too intimidated by the police to actually stand up to them.

We’re on our own.

Now you can’t say you didn’t know…………………

At what point do you think we should have a police oversight board? When the cops pull off another bank robbery? (One of them robbed a bank once, no kidding)

A mass murder? Wholesale looting? What’s the starting point to spark the Board of Supervisors into stopping police misconduct in Fairfax County?

Now you can't say you didn't or you were just following orders. Aside from this, the dark history of the Fairfax County Police working against our community is found on the blog "Fairfax County Police greatest Hits” you can't say you didn't know. In the past 12 months…………………

October 24, 2011 Fairfax Cop arrested for drunk driving.

November 14, 2011, two Fairfax cops accused of beating an unarmed man walking home from work. The man has entered suit against the county, so we'll pay for what the cops do wrong. The cops? Doesn't cost them a dime.

Dec. 3 2011. J. Randolph Babbitt was arrested for driving on the wrong side of the road and driving while intoxicated. Babbitt was forced to surrender his pilot’s license and resigned as head of the Federal Aviation Administration. Judge Ian M. O’Flaherty of Fairfax County General District Court dismissed the charges against J. Randolph Babbitt. Cutting the trial short on Thursday, Judge O’Flaherty said that the police officer who arrested Mr. Babbitt lacked reasonable suspicion for stopping him, Video from the cops dashboard camera showed Mr. Babbitt crossing over double lines and into a northbound lane as he made a left turn, but not driving the wrong way. Babbitt’s blood-alcohol concentration tested below the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent after he was stopped. The lawsuit that will stem from this will cost the county a fortune.

September 2011, Fairfax cop charged with domestic assault

Feb. 2012, several Fairfax County cops accused of beating up teenager in a McDonalds.

Feb. 2012 a cop named Robert M. Bauer arrested a former Prince George's County corrections official named Rose C. Merchant for police Impersonation. A Fairfax County judge wasted no time yesterday dismissing a criminal case against her, finding the charge against her baseless after watching a videotape that showed she did not, as prosecutors alleged, claim to be a sworn officer. “Ma'am, there's no case here," Fairfax General District Court Judge Ian M. O'Flaherty told Assistant Fairfax Commonwealth's Attorney Erin Sylvester. "This case is dismissed." "It is wrong that she has had to endure this ordeal”, Merchant’s lawyer said (Fairfax police) will move on to "business as usual, but what about Dr. Merchant? What about her record, her livelihood, her reputation? Today we are thankful that the first steps were taken to right this wrong. And be sure, there will be other measures taken as well." In other words, the people will have to pay for the cops once again.

March 2012 Police Captain gets a five-figure pay out due to interoffice pissing match

March 2012, a cop who “Resigned from the force for reasons that cannot be released” two years ago, killed himself and teenage daughter with a pistol.

May 2012: Fairfax cop arrested for sexual assault.

And those only the incidents the cops HAD to explain to the public

Now you can’t say you didn’t know…………………Do something. Take control of these punks. Fire Rhorer and bring in blood from outside the state
