Judge orders Fairfax Co. Police to release details in Geer?s death

ABC 7 WJLA News - ABC 7 News - Mon, 22 Dec 2014 17:05:12 EST

SPRINGFIELD, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: A judge has ordered the Fairfax County Police Department to release details in the death of an unarmed Springfield man who was killed by an officer.

Since John Geer was killed in August 2013, almost no information on the case has been made public. The news comes as a relief to his family, who has been waiting for answers.

A Fairfax County Circuit Court judge has ruled that police have 30 days to release information about the 46-year-old&rsquo:s death.

Geer was shot and killed in the doorway of his townhome. Police were called to the house after reports of a domestic dispute between him and his longtime partner. Someone reported Geer had weapons, although an investigation revealed he was not armed. He was killed moments after a cell phone picture showed him in the doorway of his house with his hands in the air.

According to Ben DiMuro, the Geer family&rsquo:s lawyer, police are expected to release forensic evidence, interview notes and, most notably, the name of the officer who killed Geer.

A new hearing for the case is scheduled for Feb. 6.

“When I hired Karen in 2005,” former Superintendent of Houston Independent School District (HISD) Dr. Abelardo Saavedra said, “the position of chief academic officer had been open several months. I went looking for her. I’d never met her but I’d heard about her. There is a big difference between a mid-sized district and a larger one: the dynamics are completely different. I was taking a risk because she came from a mid-sized one of about 40,000 in Corpus Christi, and ours was much bigger. She adjusted very quickly.”

ABC 7 News crew kicked out of public meeting to discuss student who threatened to ?shoot up? Lee High

ABC 7 WJLA Education - Jennifer Donelan, Kevin Lewis - Thu, 18 Dec 2014 00:15:45 EST

SPRINGFIELD, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Several Robert E. Lee High students were nervous about going to school Wednesday, following a series of recent fights and threats.

&ldquo:It was more like getting to be like a war at this school,&rdquo: said senior Christine Duley.

Students and parents told 7 On Your Side there was serious concern after fights broke out both on and off school property Tuesday. One student allegedly claimed he was going to &ldquo:shoot up&rdquo: the school on Wednesday.

&ldquo:I did hear that,&rdquo: said senior Peter Block. &ldquo:It was a little frightening, &lsquo:cause, you know, you think about it, you&rsquo:re like, whoah, what could possibly go on to make you so mad that you wanna shoot up a school?&rdquo:

Parent Aliza Taylor said, &ldquo:I just couldn&rsquo:t believe it. We&rsquo:ve been living here for eight years and never had any problems.&rdquo:

Student Sadiq Abdelghany added, &ldquo:This happens all the time at Lee &hellip: most of the time people go around saying these stuff like a joke, so I don&rsquo:t really take them seriously.&rdquo:

However, school administration and Fairfax County Police did take the threat seriously, with the principal sending emails home to parents, informing them police and security were present when school opened Wednesday morning. Officers will remain in place for the remainder of the week, though the school is not on lockdown.

Block says the increased police presence made him feel safer.

One parent and two students told 7 On Your Side that they witnessed a student being walked out of the school in handcuffs on Wednesday.

A PTSA meeting was held at the school Wednesday night to address the recent fights and threats. Just moments after the ABC 7 News crew arrived, they were told to leave.

Fairfax, Prince George's counties competing fiercely for new FBI headquarters

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - - Wed, 17 Dec 2014 19:29:40 EST

WASHINGTON (AP/Washington Post) - The battle between Fairfax and Prince George's counties over which will build a new FBI headquarters is being fought inch by inch through the long, tedious process of vetting sites and proposals.

Then there is the behind-the-scenes politicking, and on that point Virginia officials think last month's elections gave the commonwealth a level playing field.

While two veteran Virginia lawmakers will step down when the new Congress begins in January, it is Democratic Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski of Maryland's loss of control of the powerful Appropriations Committee that may help the commonwealth land the largest federal campus since the CIA's Langley headquarters was completed in 1961.

"I think the recent election bodes well for Virginia," Fairfax County Supervisor Jeff McKay (D) said. "I wish it didn't, but in the real world I think it does, at least when it comes to the FBI."

At issue is an attempted swap by the General Services Administration of the J. Edgar Hoover Building, one of the most valuable development sites to become available in downtown Washington in decades, for a new 2.1 million-square-foot campus that will consolidate 11,000 FBI workers from 20 locations around the region.

While the GSA has initiated several such swaps to get around congressional spending restrictions, this one takes place on an unprecedented scale and under the scrutiny of local lawmakers. Three sites have been chosen by the GSA as finalists: Springfield in Fairfax and Greenbelt and Landover, both in Prince George's.

Virginians claim that Maryland lawmakers in general and Mikulski in particular have exerted political pressure for the headquarters to be moved to their state. Although the decision rests with the executive branch, Mikulski, as appropriations chairwoman, may have had particular influence in the case of a swap that did not cover the full cost of the new building.

"They want everyone at GSA to know that if they pick Virginia there's going to be pain later," one Virginia Democratic staffer said.

Now Mikulski will hand over her gavel to a Republican, and nearly the entire Maryland delegation will sit in the minority. Virginians hope that shift will blunt the argument from state and local officials that Prince George's deserves this project after being repeatedly passed over by the federal government. But Maryland lawmakers also say the Greenbelt site should win on its merits.

"I personally advocate for Maryland," said Mikulski, but "I don't think it's about Democrats or Republicans. I think it's about the FBI."

Likewise, Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (D-Md.) said "the politics always cuts multiple ways," and he is confident Prince George's will prevail thanks to "the best location," not clout.

Despite Mikulski's diminished role, Maryland's chances are probably improved by a more organized, concerted effort from Prince George's officials than was ever assembled under previous county executive Jack B. Johnson, incarcerated after a corruption conviction.

Working closely with state officials, Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) has put together a subsidy package that could be worth as much as $190 million to support the Greenbelt proposal.

County officials say they are arranging similar support for a bid to bring the FBI to the former Landover Mall, and they are confident that the FBI would boost the economy.

A report commissioned by the county's partner in Greenbelt, Renard Development, and produced by Towson University's Regional Economic Studies Institute, determined that the FBI headquarters could produce $1.1 billion in economic output. And if Renard adds 2 million square feet of offices, housing, hotels and retail, it could bring the total to $3.5 billion and 21,000 jobs.

Fairfax has not done an economic assessment for the site, as Prince George's has, maybe in part because the FBI, unlike Defense Department units, does not attract a lot of private contractors and the associated property taxes. Aside from a poorly received joke about crime in Prince George's, Fairfax Economic Development Authority chief Gerald Gordon has not been prominent in the FBI effort.

"The EDA fills office buildings: they don't really do land-use stuff," McKay said. Should the Springfield location be chosen, he said, the EDA's role "traditionally would be to work with the private-sector land around the site."

Virginians have expressed concern in the past that a classified CIA facility on the Springfield property will scuttle their bid. Officials say it's an added financial concern, not an insurmountable obstacle.

"There's costs involved with the current tenants," Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) said.

Maryland lawmakers have said that a plurality of FBI employees live in their state, relying on a report from their own economic development department. But those numbers are extrapolated from general census data: the FBI has refused to say where its employees reside. Virginia officials argue that FBI workers would rather be close to Quantico, where their training academy is located.

Once two Maryland sites were named, politicking between the two developers that control them picked up steam. Lerner Enterprises, the company led by Washington Nationals owner Theodore N. Lerner, and its co-owners of the Landover Mall property have spent $143,000 this year with Dickstein Shapiro to employ a pair of former Maryland members of Congress, Sen. Joseph Tydings and Rep. Albert Wynn, to lobby on GSA issues, according to OpenSecrets.org.

Locally, the Lerners have also enlisted the help of Del. Jolene Ivey (D-Prince George's), the former candidate for lieutenant governor. Renard has employed Manis Canning & Associates to win support.

To get the complex built, the GSA has initiated two overlapping competitions: one for the best piece of land and the other for the best development deal it can get in exchange for the Hoover building, which is crumbling and dated but sits on 6.7 acres of highly valuable land.

All three finalists, chosen after more than a year of vetting and consultation, have different forms of ownership. The GSA owns the Springfield site, Metro owns the site in Greenbelt but has partnered with a private developer, and Lerner Enterprises and other private parties own the Landover site.

Next month, the GSA will begin seeking developers interested in building an FBI headquarters on any of the sites in exchange for the Hoover building. In a best-case scenario for the GSA, competition for the Hoover building will be so intense that it will be able to complete a straight swap. In that case, Norman Dong, commissioner of the GSA's Public Buildings Service, said he may not need Congress to act.

Major pitfalls remain, however. House Republicans have questioned whether the GSA's proposed swap is appropriate, and real estate professionals who are closely studying the proposal say the GSA is unlikely to reap enough money from Hoover to pay for a new FBI campus. One executive closely tracking the deal estimated that a new FBI campus could cost $1.2 billion while the Hoover building could fetch about $500 million, leaving a $700 million funding gap.

Senator, activists demand answers in death of unarmed Springfield man killed by police officer

ABC 7 WJLA News - Tom Roussey - Tue, 16 Dec 2014 23:04:48 EST

SPRINGFIELD, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: From a powerful U.S. Senator to activists organizing a protest, pressure is mounting on Fairfax County over its handling of the case of a man shot and killed by county police.

John Geer of Springfield was killed by a still unnamed Fairfax County Police officer in August 2013. He was unarmed and witnesses say his hands were above his shoulders.

Police had been called to his home by the mother of his children after a domestic dispute. A letter provided to ABC 7 News says Geer had thrown her suitcase down the stairs after a disagreement.

On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Charles Grassley's office released the letter, which Grassley sent to Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Raymond Morrogh.

Among other things, the letter questions why Morrogh recused himself from the case and then asked federal&mdash:and not state&mdash:authorities to investigate instead.

":Usually, a U.S. Attorney gets in after the state has done their investigation,": Grassley said in an interview inside his Hart Building office. ":And any criminal charges would probably be brought under state law, not federal law.":

":You waited five months to turn it over to the U.S. Attorney,": Grassley added. ":Why would it take five months to determine there's a conflict of interest, if there is a conflict of interest?":

Grassley&mdash:who is the incoming chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee&mdash:also questioned why it's taking so long to find out basic information, such as the name of the officer who fired the shot. He says Geer's family deserves answers.

":Look at Ferguson, look at Staten Island,": Grassley said. ":Within two or three months, you have a lot of information. What is there special about this that the same amount of information might not be out?":

To read Grassley's full letter, click here or see below.

Also on Tuesday, local police accountability activists announced they are planning a protest Jan. 8 at 10 a.m. outside Fairfax County's judicial center.

The protest was announced on a Facebook page called Justice For John Geer.

Air bag thefts on the rise in Fairfax County

ABC 7 WJLA News - Roz Plater - Sat, 13 Dec 2014 00:51:01 EST

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Fairfax County Police are warning of highly skilled criminals stealing residents&rsquo: air bags.

On Friday morning, Brenda Slingerland got quite the shock: she discovered the passenger window of her 2014 Nissan Sentra had been smashed. It turns out the thieves climbed through that window to steal her driver&rsquo:s side air bag&mdash:and nothing else.

&ldquo:They just professionally took it out,&rdquo: she said. &ldquo:Even the wires were just unhooked and not clipped.&rdquo:

Slingerland added, &ldquo:The insurance adjuster said he was absolutely amazed at what a clean way that they did take it out: there&rsquo:s no other damage other than the air bag missing. His words were, &lsquo:They&rsquo:ve done this many times.&rsquo:&rdquo:

Slingerland is not alone. Fairfax County Police say that in the past week, air bag thieves have hit as many as 20 cars in the North Shore and Fox Mill areas of the county. Neighbors there think they should have at least been put on notice.

&ldquo:We did not receive any warning,&rdquo: said Robert Guzman. &ldquo:We did not receive anything from the police station saying, &lsquo:Hey, be careful of this.&rsquo:&rdquo:

Slingerland is putting up with the inconvenience, but says being targeted like this still stings.
