Do you remember John Geer?

In August 2013, a man who committed no crime - his hands above his head and placed on his front doorjamb - was shot through the chest by a Fairfax County, VA officer during a lengthy discussion. Officer "John Doe" claimed that Geer had moved his hand - to ear length. Geer had had his hands up for an estimated 45 minutes ... And this is what the media referred to as a "stand-off."

Apparently, this precipitated the need for SWAT boys with an MRAP to push through the house - and take with them an amount of unreturned belongings. After nearly an hour of doing who-knows-what during this process, but certainly not calling an ambulance, they discovered what you probably already guessed - John was lying dead on the floor. Five-and-a-half hours later, he remained sprawled on the floor.
