Rep. Beyer reaction to Fairfax County Police Department’s release of video showing US Park Police shooting of Bijan Ghaisar:

“I’m glad the Fairfax County Police Department released their video of the shooting of Bijan Ghaisar by US Park Police. This is an important step towards the kind of transparency which is essential in getting the truth of what happened.

I have been in close contact with Bijan Ghaisar’s family and also with the FBI, and will continue to press authorities conducting an ongoing investigation to reveal the facts of this case in a timely manner. The police video raises further questions about the decision to use lethal force, and law enforcement authorities owe it to Mr. Ghaisar’s family and the community they serve to answer those questions.”
