Representatives slam Park Police for cancelling meeting

WASHINGTON (AP) - Two Democratic representatives say the executive of the U.S. Park Police is refusing to satisfy with them to speak about police procedures following the deadly taking pictures of a Virginia guy.

U.S. Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton of the District of Columbia say Chief Robert MacLean cancelled their scheduled meeting Tuesday on the remaining minute over his worry it could violate anti-lobbying rules. Beyer and Norton launched a commentary calling MacLean’s reasoning “erroneous.”

Beyer and Norton are pushing for necessary dashboard and frame cameras for all Park Police officials.

Park Police shot and killed Virginia resident Bijan Ghaisar in his automobile on Nov. 17 following a longer chase. The taking pictures used to be captured by way of the dashboard digital camera of a Fairfax County police automobile.
