Pigs Get Away With Murder… Again

Last month, Kenneth Yeager was murdered by the Evans po-lice, after he allegedly pointed a gun out of his car window, during a “standoff” outside of the Double Clutch Cafe. Four pigs fired a barrage at Yeager, hitting him three times. The fatal bullet struck Yeager in the face/head, as the confrontation came to an end around 6 a.m.

Today, those murderin’ pigs were (unsurprisingly) cleared of any wrongdoing and will face no punishment whatsoever. When they murdered Yeager, the po-lice were apparently under the impression that “their lives were in danger.” If the pigs felt fear for their lives, imagine how Mr. Yeager must have felt, given that there were pigs from at least seven departments, including Weld County Sheriffs and a SWAT team.  What strikes me as surprising, however, is that Yeager was shot in the head. Now, I don’t know bout yall, but I can’t imagine having the time to place such a precise shot in the morning twilight, if I felt like my life was actually threatened. I suppose shooting Yeager in the head may have been unintentional but it seems much more likely that the trained murderers had Yeager in their sights for hours and finally got the chance to exercise their itchy trigger fingers. Deadly force is the norm, not the exception.

Another civilian dead at the hands of the po-lice, another day in the streets, the struggle continues…

Victim of CSPD Shooting Identified

27 year old Gregory Taylor Burns was the victim of the CSPD shooting last Friday.  “Greg was born and lived in Colorado Springs. Greg was a skilled cook. He was fun-loving and playful. He wanted and succeeded in making people feel better. Greg is survived by a daughter and a son. He was a wonderful father who loved his children dearly.”  So it took a few days and more information was finally released, but there are still many questions around this murder.  The po-lice allege that they attempted to contact Mr. Burns and he fled on foot and at the conclusion of the chase he “pointed a gun at officers”.

Why did it take so long for this information to be released?  It would seem that if this would have been information immediately released in order to justify the use of deadly force.  Now we do not know exactly what happened, and probably never will, and this is further muddled by that fact that police routinely do anything, yes including illegal things, to cover each others’ asses.  As anyone who has been through the U.S. Injustice system knows, pigs lie.  There is still a pending investigation and the Officer that killed Greg has yet to be named, however it seems that narrative has already been constructed and the outcomes decided.

Greg did have a troubled past, but that does not justify his death in anyway.  He was a convicted felon who had recently lost his job due to his past.  It is hard enough for anyone to find a job in this depression, let alone a felon.  Greg’s life and untimely death brings up questions not only about the po-lice, but also about our so called justice system itself.  How are people supposed to be able to come back and live a normal life in society when they are stigmatized for life and lose the right to vote?  How does locking people up and dehumanizing them help them in anyway?  How can we trust a system that is increasingly privatized to actually attempt to help people when it is in their best interest, as well as their stock holders, to have repeat offenders?

It is criminal the way the system and the Colorado Springs Po-lice treated Greg, and we can hope for justice, yet we all know from that past that there is rarely justice when a pig murders a civilian.  Our hearts go out to and we send our deepest condolences to Greg’s family and friends.

Fuck the Fort Collins PD, Right on Tim Masters

The name Tim Masters is known throughout Colorado, however what few people realize is that the horrors Mr. Masters’ endured are a result of a piece of shit police department and District Attorney’s office, whose crimes are so egregious that if there was true justice in this country Lt. Jim Broderick and Judges Gilmore and Blair would be shunned from their professions and communities, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and as Masters’ attorney David Lane states, “hopefully get the same justice that was denied Tim Masters.”  Masters, through the powerhouse Denver based law firm Killmer, Lane, & Newman LLP, have settled suits with both the city of Fort Collins and Larimer County, totaling 10 million dollars.  Good fucking riddance, however clearly money can not replace the severe damage inflicted on Mr. Masters by these power abusing bastards.

In 1987 a thirty-seven year old Peggy Hettrick’s sexually mutilated body was found in a field next to fifteen year old Masters’ trailer.  What then ensued was such a shit storm that in 1999, twelve years after the sexual homicide occurred, Masters was convicted to first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.  Lt. Jim Broderick and the County Prosecutors, Blair and Gilmore, conspired to convict Masters on fabricated, falsified, and counterfeit evidence, while at the same time failing to disclose exculpatory evidence that would prove that Mr. Masters had nothing to do with the murder.

Tim Masters only true crime was that he was a poor kid growing up in a city and country that doesn’t give two shits about those who ain’t got.  You think Masters would have had to endure this had he lived in a McMansion.  No, in fact the most probable suspect, Richard Hammond, who committed suicide after it was discovered that he had been video tapping his wife, daughter, and other females vagina’s through a hidden camera he installed in his house did reside in a McMansion right next to where her body was discovered.  Hammond was an eye surgeon and experts believe that precision cutting was required in extracting the  labia and nipple of Ms. Hettrick , skills which Hammond clearly had and Masters clearly did not.  Upon discovering the voyeuristic and despicable habits of Hammond, the Fort Collins PD and Larimer County DA office destroyed an entire storage units worth of video tapes and pornographic material that may have contained the very footage of Ms. Hettrick’s murder.

I realize that this case differs from what West Denver CopWatch usually reports on, however the violations that Mr. Masters has endured by the hands of the Fort Collins Police Department and Larimer County District Attorney’s office are so horrific that they belong in the annals of police criminal history.  Usually brutal police just beat the shit out of people, which obviously is terrible in and of itself, however in this case they went out of their way to ruin a person’s life to the point that he had to serve ten years in the DOC.  Congratulations to Mr. Masters on his settlement.  Fuck the Fort Collins PD, you don’t need their apologies, they are scum.

Denver’s Police State to Expand, Privatize, and Spy on Our Youth

According to The Denver Post, there are currently 80 high tech video cameras throughout Denver’s financial districts documenting folks’ every move. H.A.L.O. surveillance cameras, (High Activity Location Observation) are so enjoyed by the business sector that several corporations have decided to donate a total of 33 more cameras to the Denver Police Department.

Now, if this doesn’t prove that the Police’s main function is to ensure the protection of the wealthy, I do not know what does. Instead of attempting to address the inadequacies and brutality of Denver’s-so-called-Finest the public and private sectors are pouring money to a Department that is being both privatized and egregiously violating our rights to privacy and “expression in public spaces.”

Most disturbing is the fact that “Target Corp. is donating $100,000 for police surveillance cameras at George Washington, Kennedy and North high schools. Police already have installed cameras at East, Lincoln, Manual and Montbello high schools, and they monitor video feeds from a separate Denver Public Schools system.” Why the fuck aren’t cameras being installed at Cherry Creek or Columbine? The fact that the state, through the financial backing of a Fortune 50 Company like Target, is spying on our children and documenting their every move reeks of corporatism, big brother antics, and further demonstrates the continuously expanding Police State.

Womyn Handcuffed to Shop

“I’m not a denver native so I can’t tell you where this is but it was last night probably at midnight or so… She said she had been there two hours and when I walked past again ten mins later she was still there. An officer approached me and asked to see my id after I took the pic. I asked why and he said that I had a legal obligation to show id. I did and he took down my info and told me that while it is not illegal to do what I did that it may be embarrassing to the womyn and I shouldn’t do it anymore. I had asked permission of the womyn.”

West Denver Copwatch received this picture and the text in an email dated June 3rd.  Thank you to the sender of this documentation of po-lice abuse.  Remember anyone with a camera on their cell phone can Copwatch anywhere anytime, please report any abuses you observe.  The streets are watchin!!!!
