Sen. Warner calls for re-examination of company's contracts after Inova inmate escape

Virginia WJLA - ABC 7 News, Joce Sterman - Sat, 18 Apr 2015 14:30:49 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) - Virginia Senator Mark Warner is calling for a reevaluation of contracts issued to the contractor involved in the escape of a prisoner from Inova Fairfax Hospital. The call comes after a Seven On Your Side I-Team investigation discovered leaders advertised as working with Allied Protection Services said they had no ties to the company.

The U.S. Marshals Service is already investigating Allied and the company's contract in Virginia has been pulled. But there's motivation now to take further action to cut off two other federal contracts issued to the company after Seven on Your Side spoke with two of the three men listed as leaders of the company. Kevin LaChapelle, listed previously on Allied's website as Director of Education and Training, said he never worked for the company.

As a result of that story, Warner said, "I think in light of what happened in Virginia, and the concerns with the company's leadership, the Marshals Service and the Department of Justice should re-examine whether those other two contracts should move forward."

Allied is being paid millions of dollars through three federal contracts obtained without any competition. The company received the contracts with help from the Small Business Administration, through a program for small, disadvantaged businesses. The agency says it did not evaluate the company's website when it was certified for the program back in 2006. But an SBA spokesman said the findings of the Seven On Your Side team could be handed over to the Inspector General or disbarring officials.

As the investigation into the escape of prisoner Wossen Asaye continues, Warner expressed the federal government isn't taking this situation seriously or urgently enough, calling the matter of public safety.

The Seven On Your Side team reached out to Leon Brooks, owner of Allied Protection for reaction to this story. We did not hear back.

Fairfax Co. Police officer facing child porn charges gets supervised release

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press, Mike Conneen, Jeff Goldberg, ABC 7 News - Thu, 16 Apr 2015 18:16:41 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA/AP) - A Fairfax County Police spokesman charged with possession of child pornography was granted supervised release on Friday.

William "Bud" Walker posted bond and left jail just before noon Friday, one day after he was arraigned on two counts of child pornography possession.

He was arrested earlier this week at police headquarters and had been relieved of duty the prior week when word of an investigation became public.

Police began their probe earlier this month after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that child pornography had been uploaded from a home in Fairfax County.

Investigator's said that home turned out to be Walker's residence.

Walker has been a police officer in Fairfax County since 1999.

He worked most recently as a public information officer for the department: he was also a school resource officer in South County High School from 2006 through 2009.

Walker and his attorney had no comment on the case as he was being released Friday.

Residents worried about potential plans to develop Reston National Golf Course

Virginia WJLA - Jeff Goldberg - Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:56:53 EST

RESTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: A battle is taking shape over potential new development in Reston, and residents are mobilizing for a fight.

The owners of Reston National Golf Course, RN Golf Management&mdash:made up of a group of investors including Northwestern Mutual&mdash:are taking steps towards new development that have locals worried. On Wednesday, the Fairfax County Board of Zoning Appeals ruled that the owners do not have to amend the land use plan to develop. The company says no plans are currently on the table. But with the new Silver Line Metro station now within walking distance of the course, golfers also fear developers will cash in with new construction.

&ldquo:It&rsquo:s a terrible idea,&rdquo: said resident David Colvin. &ldquo:I hope that somehow we will mobilize enough resistance to keep it from happening.&rdquo:

Connie Hartke is with a group called Rescue Reston, which has already gathered more than 6,000 signatures opposing the possibility of new homes being built on the golf course.

&ldquo:We&rsquo:ll lose being the gem of Fairfax County,&rdquo: she said.

Hartke says the traffic and congestion would be a significant burden.

&ldquo:Reston cannot handle it. No one has ever considered that this golf course space would be developed,&rdquo: she said.

ABC7 spoke with the attorney representing the owners of the golf course, Frank McDermott with Hunton &: Williams. He says currently there is no plan to build, and that taking action with the zoning board had one goal.

&ldquo:All we are doing is confirming our property rights,&rdquo: he said.

Virginia becomes first state to implement ABLE Act, helping families with special needs children

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - Jeff Goldberg - Tue, 14 Apr 2015 23:36:13 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Virginia is leading the way in an effort to help children with special needs, and their families could not be more proud.

On Tuesday in Arlington, Governor Terry McAuliffe joined families for the signing of the ABLE Act, which is short for &ldquo:Achieving a Better Life Experience.&rdquo: This past session the Virginia General Assembly followed the federal government&rsquo:s lead to pass the ABLE Act. Beginning July 1, the legislation will allow individuals with special needs and their families to set up tax exempt accounts, like 529s, so they can save money for future living expenses like housing and transportation.

Steve Laganke and his family drove from Richmond for the event. Laganke&rsquo:s 6-year-old son Nicolas has Down syndrome.

&ldquo:The biggest thing you worry about is what happens when you&rsquo:re not around, how do you give him financial independence? This, hopefully, will help them live a little better, a little more financial independence,&rdquo: he said.

Laganke&rsquo:s wife, Traci, says she has waited for this day for a long time.

&ldquo:It&rsquo:s a deep, rooted emotion that I don&rsquo:t think anyone can quite put into words,&rdquo: she said.

Gov. McAuliffe, a strong supporter of the bill, was beaming during Tuesday&rsquo:s signing ceremony. He is proud this bill can help families.

&ldquo:Many of them are stretched financially, distressed every day. This lightens the burden a bit and if you can do that, that&rsquo:s what we ought to be doing,&rdquo: he said.

The bill was championed by Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn of Fairfax County. She represents the 41st District, where the effort to create the legislation first began.

The ABLE Act is named after Stephen Beck, a father from Burke whose daughter Natalie has Down syndrome. Beck worked hard for 10 years to help pass this legislation. Beck recently died unexpectedly. His wife, Catherine, attended Tuesday&rsquo:s event.

&ldquo:It&rsquo:s so wonderful and also bittersweet, because it makes us realize we miss him every second of the day,&rdquo: she said.

Virginia is the first state to implement the ABLE Act since the federal legislation passed last December. Gov. McAuliffe says other states are now calling the Commonwealth looking for guidance on how to move forward on the issue.

Restrained Schizophrenic Black Woman Tazed To Death In Virginia Prison

The Young Turks - The Young Turks - 2015-04-14T01:26:19.000Z

Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) host of The Young Turks discusses a mentally ill woman in Virginia who was shackled and tasered leading to her ultimate demise. "A mentally ill woman, Natasha McKenna, has died in police custody in Fairfax, Virginia after receiving four taser blasts to her back. McKenna was in police custody for two days before she was shackled and left unattended. She was finally ready to be moved when her deteriorating mental state caused her to begin resisting police and screaming, whereas the police responded by six Sheriff's deputies putting on full biohazard suits and attempted to place her into a restrained wheel chair. When she wouldn't bend her knees to sit in the chair McKenna was tasered, allowing her to be restrained in the chair. Within minutes of being shocked McKenna stopped breathing and CPR efforts were fruitless in attempting to revive her. She was revived three times in an ambulance before finally being pronounced deceased. Officials are awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine the actual cause of her death. The manufacture of the TASER device warns against using the stungun on persons with 'excited delirium'." Could this death have been avoided? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Leadership problems exposed with contractor in Fairfax hospital prisoner escape

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Joce Sterman - Thu, 09 Apr 2015 17:25:10 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: The 7 On Your Side I-Team has uncovered stunning details about the contractor paid to handle the prisoner who escaped last week from Inova Fairfax Hospital.

Following the escape, our team wanted answers from Allied Protection Services, the California company paid by your tax dollars to handle transport. But we discovered two of the three men advertised as leaders of Allied claim they have no ties to the company.

As police officers combed the Fairfax area last Tuesday for missing prisoner Wossen Assaye, the 7 On Your Side I-Team went searching for answers about the company that employs the guards paid to watch him. One of our first calls was to a businessman living more than 2,000 miles from the scene, Kevin LaChappelle.

":First I thought it was a wrong number,": LaChapelle told ABC7, ":and then she began giving me what the biography said and I knew it was me.":

We captured images of LaChapelle's full biography on the website for Allied Protection Services. It listed him as the director of education and training for the company, which is contracted by the U.S. Marshals Service. There's even an email address to contact him. But the problem is LaChappelle says he's never worked for Allied Protection, saying ":I've never received any compensation from them. Never been employed by them. Never contracted. Nothing whatsoever.":

LaChappelle, who runs his own business, Power Mentor, was unaware Allied Protection Services had apparently been trading on his good name for years. And he's not the only one. Ronald Paschall, previously listed on Allied's website as director of operations, also tells the 7 On Your Side I-Team he's got no ties to the company. Both say they threatened legal action last week following the escape and demanded their information be removed. Within days, the company's website&mdash:which had been up since 2006&mdash:disappeared.

It was a stunning revelation for LaChapelle, who wants to send letters to any government agency that may be using Allied Protection. The work the company is doing is costly to the taxpayer. The 7 On Your Side I-Team found two contracts for more than $2 million were awarded to Allied Protection last year by the U.S. Marshals Service, including the one that put its guards in charge at Inova Fairfax Hospital last week. One press officer indicated the agency indicated it was not aware of the discrepancies we pointed out regarding the website. The U.S. Marshals Service says a required review of Allied Protection was performed as part of the big process and APS was found to be a responsible contractor. Additionally, the business is registered with the Small Business Administration and provided a certificate of competency. The USMS said it had no information about Allied&rsquo:s website and couldn&rsquo:t say whether our findings would warrant a second look at the contract.

":My concern is hoping that whatever agency is overseeing them gives a closer look to find out and make sure things are being done properly, because this is very troubling,": LaChapelle said.

The voicemail for Allied Protection Services was full, but we did reach the company's owner, Leon Brooks, by cell phone. He said it was a test website and that errors were not made with any malice. Repeated emails to multiple email addresses for Brooks went unanswered over the course of several days.

Fairfax County teachers protest budget cuts, fight for promised raises

ABC 7 WJLA Education - Jay Korff - Thu, 09 Apr 2015 00:29:19 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Fairfax County touts its public school system as one of the best in the country. But some of its teachers say their compensation is substandard.

On Wednesday night, frustrated Fairfax County school teachers rallied outside a Board of Supervisors public hearing, fearing they won&rsquo:t get what they believe are much-needed pay raises.

Teacher Jennifer Stark Beasely said, &ldquo:I could not recommend in good faith that a teacher move to this county for work, because I have a clear vision of this county&rsquo:s puny commitments to the teachers&rsquo: futures.&rdquo:

As it stands right now, the county&rsquo:s proposed budget falls $14 million short of what the school board asked for. School officials say if that gap isn&rsquo:t filled teachers may not get promised raises.

McLean English teacher Lori Wagoner said, &ldquo:I succeeded, but you have failed to honor your obligation. You promised me security with which I could plan my life, but now you have breached that trust.&rdquo:

Wagoner says she and her family can&rsquo:t afford to stay in the area, due to a salary that she says can&rsquo:t keep up with the region&rsquo:s high cost of living.

&ldquo:I&rsquo:m a good educator. You can&rsquo:t afford to lose me. But I can no longer afford to stay here,&rdquo: she said.

A clearly emotional Wagoner told ABC7 after her remarks that, despite her abiding commitment to students, this will be her last year in Fairfax County. She and her family are moving out of state.

Other teachers say too many of their colleagues are leaving for better-paying jobs in nearby Arlington and Montgomery counties.

Teacher Bridget Kraft said, &ldquo:I have a master&rsquo:s degree. I&rsquo:ve been working for Fairfax County Public Schools for nine years and I make $58,000 a year, and it embarrasses me.&rdquo:

The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote on the budget April 28.

Fairfax County residents displaced after 110-foot tree falls on home

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Mon, 06 Apr 2015 09:32:26 EST

SPRINGFIELD, Va. (AP) - A Fairfax County fire official said a 110-foot tree fell onto a home in northern Virginia over the weekend.

Deputy Chief Reginald Johnson said that the massive tree fell on the home in Springfield on Saturday evening, displacing two residents. The residents were reportedly inside the basement at the time the tree fell, though Johnson was unable to confirm that.

Johnson said no one was hurt or trapped after the tree fell amid strong winds and soil that was wet from rain the previous day.

Johnson said the home sustained significant damage and that a county building inspector condemned it, forcing the residents out.

Expelled George Mason student says rough sex was role-play, not rape

ABC 7 WJLA Education - - Mon, 06 Apr 2015 11:19:12 EST

McLEAN, Va. (AP) A student expelled from George Mason University for violating its sexual misconduct policy is suing in federal court to clear his name, arguing that an encounter with a girlfriend was sadomasochistic role-playing, not sexual assault.

In response, the university is demanding that the ex-student identify himself publicly if he wants to pursue his claims.

The expelled student, who sued under a pseudonym to protect his privacy, should have no fear of embarrassment, because the lifestyle has been recently glamorized in commercially successful film and books, i.e. Fifty Shades of Grey, Assistant Attorney General David Drummey wrote on behalf of the university.

Drummey also waved off arguments that exposing the man could also identify a victim of sexual assault, saying that there was no evidence she could face retaliatory harm. Her small risk of exposure cannot outweigh the publics First Amendment right to have open access to our courts judicial proceedings, Drummey wrote.

The universitys motion seeks to reverse a judges decision allowing the student to sue anonymously.

The student says he had been in a longstanding relationship with the woman, and that they frequently engaged in sadomasochistic role-playing that involved announcing a safe word if one or the other wanted to stop.

Colleges nationwide are under increased pressure to respond forcefully to allegations of sexual assault. The University of Virginia recently implemented changes in its sexual misconduct policy after a now-discredited Rolling Stone article alleged that school officials were indifferent to allegations that a student had been raped at a fraternity party.

The allegations at George Mason stem from an October 2013 encounter the couple shared in the male students Fairfax campus dorm room. At one point, according to the lawsuit, she pushed him away but didnt invoke her safe word. Later that night, the two engaged in a second sex act, in which the male student asked her if she was interested, and she replied, I dont know.

According to the lawsuit, the couple remained romantically involved for several months, but broke up after she found he had been cheating on her: only then did she file a complaint against him.

A university panel cleared him of any wrongdoing in September after a 10-hour hearing to determine whether the universitys code of conduct was violated, according to the suit. But the woman appealed, and Assistant Dean of Students Brent Ericson overruled the three-person panel, expelling the student.

The lawsuit says his expulsion was the result of gender bias and violated his right to engage in constitutionally protected sexual activity. He wants the violation removed from his student record, and hes seeking $3 million in damages.

The only explanation for such a rash, unreasoned, and unsupported decision is Mr. Ericsons desire to help a complaining female when the system had found a respondent male not responsible, the students lawyers wrote. If Jane Roe (the pseudonym for the unidentified female student) were not a female complaining of sexual assault, her testimony would not have been credited over John Does given the evidence corroborating John Does explanation of their BDSM relationship and the material concessions Jane Roe made at the hearing.

A GMU spokeswoman declined comment on the lawsuit.
