Since taking office, Mr. Descano has trampled victims’ rights and emboldened criminals. This effort is not about politics, it is about human dignity.

From your FCPA board:

On March 29, 2021, Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Richard E. Gardiner issued a written ruling in response to a defense motion filed in the matter of Commonwealth v. Harwinder Sangha, MI 2020-565. At issue was the Court’s authority to hear certain misdemeanor matters where the Commonwealth’s Attorney elects not to participate. Judge Gardiner ruled in favor of the defense and stated… “the court is bound by the law and cannot jump into the breach created by the absence of the Commonwealth Attorney and take on the role of the executive... The court is thus compelled to dismiss the charge against Defendant.” While Judge Gardiner’s ruling is not binding on the Court as a whole, it is his legal opinion that misdemeanor cases cannot proceed before the court absent the Commonwealth’s Attorney.
The FCPA respectfully disagrees with the conclusion reached by Judge Gardiner, but the equation is better solved by restoring the participation of the Commonwealth’s Attorney. While the Commonwealth’s Attorney in several other Virginia jurisdictions have removed themselves from traffic related misdemeanors, Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano has withdrawn his Office from serious, victim-based misdemeanor cases that include assaults, indecent exposure, peeping, and unlawful entry. It is time for our great community to stand up and demand that Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano represent the interest of crime victims in all criminal matters. He cannot continue to balance his budget on their backs.

Attached to this post is the opinion from The Honorable Judge Gardiner of the Fairfax County Circuit Court.

UPDATE: Update: Suspect in Shooting of Sheriff’s Deputy and Two Civilians Arrested on 11 Felony Charges https://bit.ly/2MuAPrd

ORIGINAL POST:
A suspect is in custody after a Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputy and two civilians were injured when shots were fired by the suspect while he was being taken into custody for a larceny at the Dulles Crossing Plaza late this afternoon.

The suspect was initially confronted by two civilian loss prevention officers at the Walmart, who reportedly observed him stealing items from the store. As two deputies responded to take the individual into custody, the suspect began to struggle with them and pulled out a firearm. The suspect then discharged multiple rounds striking one deputy and the two store employees.

The suspect fled the store as another deputy gave chase. The deputy and the suspect exchanged fire. The suspect, who was struck, was able to flee the area in a vehicle he stole from a nearby parking lot.

All three of the victims were taken to a local hospital and are being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

A lookout was posted for the stolen vehicle and members of the Fairfax County Police Department (FCPD) located the suspect vehicle traveling southbound on Route 28. FCPD Officers followed the suspect vehicle which ended up crashing in the area of Presgraves Court. He was later taken into custody by the Fairfax County Police Department on Pennsboro Drive. He was taken to an area hospital. Charges are pending.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Fairfax County Police Department and the Virginia State Police for their assistance.

In the recent months we have heard an AMAZING amount of input from employees from all over the department. This past week your voices were heard from our Fairfax County leaders.

We just wanted to highlight some of the inspiring words that we have heard recently from our police officers and employees.

"All I want is my pride back"

"Remember why you started this job"

"Tough times don't last, tough people do"

As you go out there each and every shift, please keep in mind why you decided to put on that badge. There is no doubt that our officers go out everyday with the best of intentions. Being PROUD of that work is something that drives us through these challenging times in society and builds relationships in our community.

Please continue to take of each other and don't forget why you decided to pin on that badge.

Press Conference: Sheriff Villanueva Discusses Ambush Shooting of Two Deputies in Compton

Our thoughts go out to the men and woman of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department during these difficult times.

It's senseless acts like this that remind us how important it is to come together as a community and as a nation.

We hope that our political and civic leaders as well as our police administrators consider these types of events as they make policy and legislative decisions.

As we take the time to remember the attacks of September 11th, may we be reminded of how Americans came together in the days to follow to triumph over evil.

This tragedy will always be a solemn reminder of what we are capable of when we come together as a community and as a country united.

A Labor Day message from the FCPA President:

As I sat over a cup of coffee this Labor Day morning, my thoughts focused on the many brave men and women who preceded us in service with the Fairfax County Police Department. After all, it was their sacrifices that brought this department to the pinnacle of law enforcement in the country. How sad they must be today to see the fruits of their labor laid to waste. Naturally, my thoughts turned to the causality of our plunge to this unprecedented low and the same question paced my mind- Chief Roessler, where are you?

Our elected officials in Richmond are currently debating and voting on the most anti-police legislation of our lifetime. Amongst the many misguided bills are efforts to eliminate our qualified immunity. This week, a veteran insurance broker told me, “our legislators think they are throwing a pebble into a pond when they are actually dropping a bolder into a bathtub.” Numerous police chiefs from around the Commonwealth have descended on Richmond to meet legislators and make their voices heard. Chief Roessler, where are you?

Commonwealth’s Attorney Steven Descano’s policies have set back victim’s rights in Fairfax County by two decades. We have witnessed his office engage in numerous violations of the Virginia Crime Victim and Witness Rights Act. Violent offenders walk free or receive a slap on the wrist while victims are retraumatized in their disbelief of an offender-centric system. Our officers have been left alone to battle defense attorneys in heinous misdemeanor cases like animal cruelty, indecent exposure, assaults and child abuse. Chief Roessler, where are you?

Nationwide unrest has led to violent clashes with police across our great country. Our profession is being unfairly and inaccurately represented in the media and demonized by special interest groups. Assaults on our officers are becoming more and more routine and at every turn they have a cellphone camera shoved into their face. None of our leaders have publicly defended our officers’ sacrifice and dedication. Chief Roessler, where are you?

In July, the Department released use of force statistics to the public with no accompanying contextual statistics. These contextual statistics show unequivocally that the Fairfax County Police Department does not engage in biased based policing. After I challenged Chief Roessler at the August command staff meeting, he advised that those contextual statistics would be produced and the record would be corrected. It’s September and we have yet to see any correction of the record. Chief Roessler, where are you?

In years past, our officers receiving training at regional criminal justice academies were often approached by other students who admired the Fairfax County Police. Now when our officers visit other academies, students approach them and openly mock our department. Our detectives are experiencing this same thing when meeting with federal law enforcement partners and our local neighboring departments. In the span of a year, the Fairfax County Police Department has turned from an industry leader to the punchline for jokes. Chief Roessler, where are you?

On June 6th, Chief Roessler held a press conference during which he demonized our entire profession and defamed one of his own employees. Three months later, we remain frozen in the worst crisis of morale in our history. Our leadership’s silence is metaphorically deafening. No justification for gross violations of well-established protocols, no explanation for criminal charges being brought before an investigation even commenced, no apology for violating an employee’s due process rights, no commitment to correct course in the future. Chief Roessler, where are you?

Though I could continue with many more paragraphs, the point has been made. We have been abandoned. So, let me humbly ask again- Chief Roessler, WHERE ARE YOU?
