Outrage articulated properly

I was very happy to see in this morning's Post a terrific column by Marc Fisher about the PG county officer who shot the furniture movers. As we know one of the movers recently died from his wounds. I understand the investigation is currently ongoing but Fisher does a terrific job articulating my concerns. Mr. Washington is the officer who shot the movers. Fisher writes:

"Whatever happened last month, the long list of allegations about Washington's aggressive, in-your-face behavior raises powerful questions about just what he is doing in a position of authority in county government."

That's all I was trying to say. This is a good example of why we need professional journalists. I had the outrage but couldn't express it properly nor did I have time to do the investigative work done by Mr. Fisher. Please check out the link if you are at all interested. Kudos to Mr. Fisher for capturing the concerns that I and many others have towards this case.
