Update: Fort Collins Man Killed by Fort Collins PD

Raymond Frederick Ault, of Fort Collins was killed by the Fort Collins PD on Wednesday night.   Mr. Ault died from several gunshot wounds to the torso.  Three officers involved have been put on paid Admin-Leave pending the investigation.  Apparently, outside of Denver, it is common practice to place officers involved in shooting deaths on leave.

The murderers are  Sgt. Jon Holsten, a 15-year veteran of the department; Officer Adam Ruehlen, an 11-year veteran, and Officer Josh Goldschmidt, who has been a Fort Collins officer for a year.  Denver Post

The common formula of vilifying the victim has already began.  They are claiming that Mr. Ault was a longtime criminal and charged at the officers.  But we at WDCW are hip to these shenanigans.

Our deepest condolences to the family.
