"19-year-old Hailu Brook was shot and killed by Fairfax County police after he allegedly robbed a bank and crossed the county line. Officers fired 25 shots into his body, and the Arlington County Police Department conducted an official investigation into the actions of the Fairfax officers."
"The case is closed, but the Arlington police chief is refusing to release the document to the public or even the father of the slain teenager.”Transparency wouldn't kill anybody," the father told investigative reporter Michael Lee Pope, who reported the story as part of a partnership between WAMU 88.5 News and the State Integrity Investigation."

Now the police will not even offer closure to the family? What is going on here? From what I read, the police made a mistake which resulted in a murder of a teenager and are now trying to cover it up.

The best quote I have ever read came from the vicim's father: "Transparency wouldn't kill anybody. It is only when we have transparency that we will find accountability."

Only the bad guys hide behind the law, according to the police.
