Not only does POMC help survivors deal with their acute grief, but with the criminal justice system as well. The staff of the National Headquarters of POMC will assist any survivor and, if possible, link that survivor with others in the same vicinity who have survived their loved one's murder. In addition, the staff is available to provide individual assistance, support and advocacy. The staff will also help interested parents or immediate family members form a chapter of POMC in their community.

Parents Against Corruption and Cover-up (PACC)

We created this web site as a repository of information related to Tommy's murder and the cover up by the FBI and Fairfax Co. VA police; as a gallery of squares and stories represented in The Coverup Quilt (a family memorial to victims of covered up murder), and as an online home for our newsletter, The Bulldog ........ Tom Burkett & Beth George"
The site also has Suggestions for those who have lost a loved one due to violence, which outlines things to do to assure accuracy of the police investigation.
