Christmas came a few days early for the many people seeking answers in the death of 46-year-old John Geer. On Monday, the Fairfax County Police Department was ordered to release information about why the unarmed man was shot and killed by one of its officers on August 29, 2013.
What is already known is that police officers were dispatched to Geer’s townhouse in Springfield, Virginia, after his partner, Maura Harrington, called 911 reporting that he was throwing her belongings out of their residence. After 24 years and two daughters, Harrington was moving out, and Geer was understandably upset at the prospect. Harrington says, “He needed help. He didn’t need the situation worse by having guns pointed at him.” She also denies reports that he had been drinking that day.
After the police arrived, Geer stood behind the storm door of his house, speaking with the officers for 50 minutes. Geer’s father and best friend, Jeff Stewart, were both on the scene during the incident. According to Stewart, Geer spoke calmly with the officers, saying ‘I’m not coming out, you’re not coming in.’ Harrington added, “He told them he didn’t have to come out. He has every right to stay in his own house, and they’re not welcome to come in.”
What is not known is why four police officers continued to keep their guns drawn and trained on an unarmed man who was alone in his house and had no history of violence, for the entire 50 minutes that they chatted with him, and why one of them shot him without provocation. Stewart recounts what he saw happen that day, “He’s got his hands on the top of the storm door, and it’s open about six inches. All of a sudden he starts lowering his hands. His hands move down the door, level with his face, and the cops shot him once in the chest.”

Virginia Cop Block’s involvement will include making posts on our Facebook page concerning recent examples of Jury Nullification as well as individuals volunteering their time to hand out Jury Rights information outside of local court houses in the Richmond area.
The Fully Informed Jury Association’s National Press Release about this can be found here.
As many of you readers already know and understand, Virginia Cop Block is more than just a (decentralized) organization that aims to help hold Law Enforcement and the “Justice” System accountable; we also have a very heavy focus on educating individuals on their civil rights, which is why we created and launched the “Liberty Empowerment Project” a couple of years ago and raised money to print 10,000 “Liberty Empowerment Packets” which included information on the project itself, Virginia Cop Block, Individual Rights, Your rights when dealing with the police, Jury Rights and Helpful information when having to deal with going to court and handling various charges. Volunteers went person to person and door to door in local Richmond Communities handing out this information. The Project was a great success and we just so happen to currently be raising more funds to reprint all of that material. In addition to that project, we also leased out (short lease) two digital billboards in the RVA area that promoted the message of Police Accountability and Jury Nullification.
If you are interested in joining in on the outreach or for more information on the September 5th outreach see the Facebook Event.
There will be a major push this coming legislative session to get a Jury Nullification Bill passed, like New Hampshire recently did.

FROM THE FULL COURT PRESS: We all remember Paul Ebert from the Lorena Bobbit “penis removal” case where she was acquitted of severing her “then” husband, John Wayne Bobbit’s, penis off while he was sleeping.
To summarize, Lorena took “the penis” with her while she got into her vehicle and drove away, throwing it along side of the road. PWC Police found “the penis” and placed it on ice. John Wayne had the penis reattached in a lengthy surgery. John Wayne has since divorced Lorena and touts professions such as “Porn Star” and “Car Washer” since that horrendous debacle.
In the prosecution of Lorena Bobbit, Paul Ebert, failed to get a conviction and subsequently Lorena walked free for such a crime and de-masculating gruesome act of torture.
The Full Court Press(“TFCP”) FROM THE FULL COURT PRESS – wrote about a Family Court Judge in Winchester Virginia previously on June 27th ,2014 – regarding a Man who was jailed by Judge Beth Kellas Burton.
Rand Cadmus caught Judge Burton acting-out on her Bench and illegitimately threatening him in her Family courtroom. Cadmus notified the Court that he had recorded his own proceeding and Judge Burton literally hit the roof.
In an effort to cover-up her misdeeds and horrible behavior, she arguably, committed a crime. Burton used the Bailiff’s in the courtroom and not only conspired with them but through force, took the recording device and attempted to erase her own courtroom antics that Cadmus “caught on tape” after she incarcerated him.
A young lady who had been caught in the Winchester “Litigation Vortex” had her cases continued for nearly “one year” to no fault of her own. Though, the docket states that she had initiated at least one continuance, the fact was that the Court failed to properly appoint legal counsel to the young lady.
TFCP sat in all of the hearings beginning January 3rd 2014 and watched the Commonwealth Attorney’s office frivolously continue the case “knowing”….. THE WHOLE STORY HERE
FROM THE FULL COURT PRESS – In early 2014, The Frederick County Sheriff, Robert T. Williamson was sued in Frederick County General District Court for failing to respond to a simple FOIA request.
The Plaintiff, Rand Cadmus, had been attempting to extract information out of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Dept for (4) months. Email after email back and forth until the Frederick County Sheriff’s Doug Lang ended with “We will not repond to your emails[sic]).
FROM: THE FULL COURT PRESS – On August 26, 2013, Rand Cadmus appeared in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court regarding an illegitimate protective order that Deputy Doug Nicholson issued towards him as well as assault charges. All of the charges were immediately dropped.
During this shenanigan facilitated by the Frederick County Sheriff’s Department and Deputy Doug Nicholson – Cadmus’s mother died after he had an emergency welfare check done on his mother. FCSD refused to have her admitted for evaluation.

I was due in Hanover Court on Monday June 23rd at 9:30 in regards to a Civil Lawsuit where Virginia State Trooper Melanie McKenney was/ is trying to sue me for “Defamation”. The small claims court room was in the basement of the General District Court. Virginia State Police Employee, Melanie McKenney failed to show up. My case was the first called, we told the Judge we would wait around for 15 minutes. After waiting with no appearance by McKenney, the Judge dismissed the case.
Now Today, June 26th, 2015 I receive mail from McKenney, that was a copy of a letter she sent to the Judge the day after our Court Date, apologizing for her absence and requesting/ submitting a motion to reopen the case. See pictures below. Read more
