According to the Washington Post –
The former Fairfax County police officer who shot and killed an unarmed man in his doorway in 2013 was sentenced to a year in jail Friday for involuntary manslaughter, over the vehement objection of the victim’s mother. Having already served more than 10 months behind bars, the officer will be released next week, Fairfax sheriff’s officials said.
I am totally speechless on this matter, to think someone could be killed in Virginia and only face 1 year,.. sends a strong message to the outstanding citizens whom reside there.
Geer will leave behind a beautiful family forever, and Virginia’s Judicial system thought it was appropriate,. that the cost of ones life was worth only a year that the suffering for the victims of the family to endure,. Should last forever.
In many instances many people don’t pay attention as to just how important accountability truly is, until it has effected someone either close to them and or a loved one.
I’ve said it before and will say it again, It is important to choose wisely when you vote… ” You’re Vote Matters “.
RIP, John Geer our push for accountability will continue.
