Furthermore, there has been speculation over the last week that the rank and file of the DPD is taking part in an organized work slow down.

Finally, following October 22, the International Day Against Police Brutality, there is a sense of urgency and momentum in the air.

We must be diligent, cautious, and courageous.
Big up to Queen City Antifa, West Denver Copwatch, Comite Defensa Del Pueblo, Aurora Copwatch, and all of the folks that took part in any or all of the weekends festivities. Keeping it real.
