Why Did Keith A. Washington Still Have a Gun?!

innocent appraiser
Keith “I’ll Kill Ya” Washington

I cannot believe this! Keith A. Washington, the guy who shot two Marlo Furniture movers, killing Brandon D. Clark, did it again. He whipped out his police issued pistol and threatened a innocent home appraiser who knocked on his door last week.

Can we get a big “WTF!”? Why does this man still have a gun? A PG Country police issued gun no less!

Why does he have any gun on his person after the Marlo movers shooting? The guy is a crazed lunatic, a real a-hole and shouldn’t be in possession of a police issued anything, except a prison jumpsuit.

And yet here he is getting charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and use of a handgun during a violent crime with said government gun. Oh wait, not the first gun but a second gun. From the WashPost article:

Investigators confiscated Washington’s service weapon when he was placed on administrative leave after the January shooting. At some point, under standard police practices, he was issued another weapon. A source, who requested anonymity because the case is ongoing, said investigators think the gun involved Thursday was the newly issued service weapon.

Giving a guy under investigation for a double shooting & one death with a gun, a second gun, is “standard police practice” in PG Country? Will Police Chief Melvin C. High yet again give Washington his gun and badge back even after he took them and Washington’s police powers because of this second action?

Keith A. Washington is nuts & should be allowed a water pistol, much less an actual lethal weapon. I don’t even live near PG Country and I totally agree with the still shocked appraiser:

“Considering what happened to the guys from Marlo Furniture, I felt both terrified and grateful that I wasn’t killed,” King said.

Damn straight, Mr. King. And if you’re wondering just how f**ked up the scene was for Keith A. Washington to pull a gun, check out the account published in the Post after the jump.

The incident that triggered Washington’s arrest occurred when Kevin King, a real estate appraiser for ONCE Appraisals in the District, pulled up to Washington’s house in the 1500 block of Shellford Lane about 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

In a charging document filed with Prince George’s authorities, King said he was sitting in his vehicle, which bore his company’s name on the tailgate, when Washington pulled into his driveway. King said he noticed the car immediately because Washington almost hit his mailbox as he parked.

“He exited his car and looked at me. I waved at him to say ‘Hi,’ ” King said in the charging document.
King said Washington then let himself into the house through the front door. Moments later, King noticed Washington behind his vehicle. Washington next went to the back of his house.

King finished his paperwork, walked to the center of the street, took photos of the home and shot two more street-view photos. He then knocked on the front door. When Washington answered, he immediately became irate, King said.

“He produced a handgun at one point with the barrel facing me in a threatening and deadly manner. I began to walk backwards toward the street, explaining I was an appraiser. I showed him the appraisal order form, but he continued to threaten me,” King said.

Realizing he was at the wrong house, King said he got into his car as Washington “continued to scream and threaten” him. King drove up the street, stopped at the correct address and called 911, according to the documents.

    Yeah, this guy is a certifiable nut job. My brother was a cop for a number of years and when he shot someone he had to surrender his weapon and later was reissued the same or a different one. However, it was ruled a clean shooting, likely because he did not shoot a furniture delivery person, but some whack job waving a gun around.

    I don’t get this. I bet Washington gets sliced from crotch to sternum in the prison shower and they find a giant tumor on his amygdala, like Charles Whitman had.

    I can’t believe what a complete freak Washington is. To lethally threaten an appraiser, in marked car, in broad daylight, with the appraisal request in his hand, is going way, Waaay, WAAAAAY over the top.

    It appears that all were too quick to judge Mr. Washington……It appears that Mr. King is not certified or licensed to do Home Appraisal it is speculated by authorities that he was merely trying to portray himself as a victim and colluded with others to sue Mr. Washington, It also appears that the whole thing was fabricated by Mr. King……The attorney General of Md posted on their website the following information about Mr. King…..


    Mr. King has at least 5 civil suits pending and many creditors and citizens after him for alleged fraudulent dealings….It amazing how a man posing an appraiser who doesn’t have an appraisers license can get a warrant for an innocent man’s arrest and claim he was at the wrong man’s house trying to do an appraisal…It also appears that Mr. White (alleged Marlo furniture guy) has several burglaries and is a register sex offender and had a assault with intent to murder charge previous to his encounter with Mr. Washington….It looks like Mr. Washington was justified in defending his home against these crooks and con men….All I can say is that the crooks are out trying to make a dollar

    Your links and information is quite suspect, “Concerned Citizen”. You link to some random King who was denied a firearm permit – no one or thing associated with this case.

    Yet, I link to multiple sources who say both that Washington was going nuts on innocent delivery guys (no matter if one had an old record – so does Washington) and that the appraiser was real & really threatened.

    Next time you wanna be concerned, do ti right, with substance. Until then, I stand by my post – Keith A. Washington shouldn’t be in possession of a police issued anything, except a prison jumpsuit.

    Concerned Citizen posted the same comment on two other sites. Here’s the first:


    here’s the second site:


    On the second link, “Susan” posts a comment in support of Concerned Citizen/Dave, and the moderator points out both Dave’s and Susan’s comments are from the same IP address, lol Take a look and tell me if you don’t agree this guy Dave is full of shit.
