As a fellow brother I hope and pray he has not passed away but I do have to say the hopes of finding him alive are slim at this point. This goes to show just how hard our police and fire train to keep people out of harms way. Lets hope for the best.

This is old news now and should be surpressed for the sake of the family until there is something new to report. After 20 hours it is no longer a search and rescue it is a search and recover. I hope that police department has someone other than that non english speaking buffoon PIO officer to break any bad news to the family. ICE should look into his pedagree and determine if he is one of Gerry Connolly's hide-aways.

First my thoughts and prayers go to the family and his Police offericers. This is not old news and those of us who live in Lorton are concerned and want to know what is happening. We all pray and hope everyday that there is no news. I realize that it has been too long but there is always hope and prayer for the family that can go on.

Your story regarding the missing Fairfax County Police Officer is pathetic to say the least. After almost 48 hours there is alot more information to pass on than this poor version of a 'short story'. Fairfax County plays a major role in this Metropolitan area. I look to the news agencies to give me as much information as possible and believe me, I know there is more out there than this.

For now, I will continue to seek my online information from Fox News.

Why was between $100,000.00 and $250,000.00 or even more being spent on this type of training for police officers? There is something more here than meets the eye. This training should be for members of the fire & rescue personnel and not bumbling policemen. If this training was for a legitimate purpose it would have been give to rescue folks. In a real event or emergency that the county says this training simulated, who would you want saving you soggy butt; a trained paramedic or rescue professional or some cop with powdered sugar all over his face. But then consider that supposedly they have gathered the finest and costliest instructors giving this course on saving people who fall overboard, and immediately after the class is over, what the heck happens: Someone falls(sic) overboard, or that's what the county says happened. And surrounded by the areas experts and it finest water rescue personnel, both instructors and students, what the fu** happens. It appears that all of the instructors and the students were graduates or near graduates of the Fairfax County Public School System. I hope since the FBI appeared on the scene (so very strange they were in the area for this Fairfax County training class) that they conducted alcohol and drug testing on all of the instructors and students. I know the county police never conducted those usual test on their Off. Amanda Perry when she killed an innocent human being with her vehicle. That is a coverup we will never forget. So I wonder how much this fiasco is costing the taxpayers especially when you consider the loss of this unfortunate police officer. How much is the life of a twenty year veteran of the police force woth to you Gerry Connolly. My sympathies to the officers family. So sorry for your loss.
