2 black protestors arrested in Boulder during Saturday demonstrations

0

Joe Harris the black protestor who cursed out Boulder PD two weeks ago landed himself in jail this time for spitting on a motorist and becoming combative during march.

Police arrested two protestors this afternoon during a planned march in Boulder.
The first protester was arrested after a motorist complained to police that the protestor spit on the motorist’s car. The protestor did not have any identification on him and gave the police officer his name and date of birth. The initial clearance indicated he was wanted on several warrants.

An officer arrested the protestor in the 2700 block of Pearl St. and attempted to transport him to the Boulder County Jail, but was surrounded by dozens of people involved in the planned march who blocked the officer from leaving the area.

At this time, another protestor, Joseph Virgil Harris Tolbert (DOB 11/23/1983), became combative with police and refused to cooperate with orders to clear the area around the police car which had been surrounded. Tolbert sat on the hood of the patrol car, preventing the police officer from leaving the area to go to the Boulder County Jail.

Tolbert fought with several officers as he was being arrested and continued to be combative in his efforts to resist being taken into custody. Tolbert was transported to the Boulder County Jail and faces charges of Resisting Arrest and Obstructing a Peace Officer.

Police have released the first protestor who had been arrested on the warrants. There was a miscommunication regarding his social security number and the warrants do not apply to him. He was cooperative during the investigation.

Tolbert has been released from jail on a personal recognizance bond.

The case number is 14-15862. No further information is available and nothing further will be released this weekend.

Boulder CU welcome ! Hands Up Don’t Shoot! Cops

0

Boulder is a pretty safe place; if you are rich and white. It gets less safe if you are Latino or African American. As long as you look, talk and walk white you should be fine here. But the cops are going to watch you.

If you look hip hop and all gangster, all eyes will be on you where ever you go.
If you are Asian, you are less suspect. Try to look like a nerd . If you are middle eastern try to look as American as you can. Many of you are rich, hang together, don’t drink and are fashionable. That goes a long way here. Goes without saying don’t wear hodgie clothes not matter if some white people do. They’re stupid and they don’t understand the implications… but the police do and Afgan and Iraqi war veterans who you will be going to school with don’t think hodgie clothes are cool. It makes them nervous and you suspect.

Most Strict sharia Muslims were thrown out of Boulder after 911. They FBI came to CU and revoked everyone’s passports. So don’t go grocery shopping at 1:00 am with your wife following behind you in a Birka. Dropped the Birka and any of that child or woman repressive civil rights stuff while you are in Boulder.

In all my years with my involvement with Police and  law enforcement one thought comes to mind. They do have the power, training, wherewithal and the guns to kill you at the drop of a hat. Like an explosive offensive lineman in football cops are like wild beasts ready to strike without warning. So you have to be mindful of that. You are not dealing with an ordinary person. You are always dealing with someone who can knock you to the ground, handcuff you and take away your freedom or your life. They are a gang of trained killers who live in a closed society. They are the military except on American soil. Our Military only operates on foreign soil  where the host country fears for their lives. Cops are color blind. They only see blue. They are a brotherhood of men and women who rule the streets.  They have rules of engagement which are less strict than our US Marine Corps.

That means if you frighten them them they can and will shoot to kill you.  They do not have much of an in between.

So I always approach cops with this in mind. I am not stupid.  I don’t ever do things to antagonize them. I never fight with them or argue with then.

They have the gun on their holster. They have the badge of authority and the entire police department, district attorneys office and local government behind them.

Cops are the wrong people to fuck with always.  Many of them are stressed and overworked. They spend much of the day dealing with scumbag wife beaters, child abusers, drug addicts and alcoholics, thieves etc.

So when they run up on you in a traffic stop just know you have a wilkd lion coming up to your car and you don’t want to piss him or her off.

What to do in a traffic stop.

1. Pull over to the right immediately and stop.

2. Don’t get out of the car.

3. Put your hands up on the steering wheel and keep them there.

4. If it is night , turn your overhead light on so the officer can see your hands.

5. Don’t go fishing around for your license or registration in the glove  box.

6. Sit still and wait for the cop to come to your window and wait for instructions.

7. Cops get nervous when you go to the glove box or start fishing around.  They worry that you might have a gun or someone in the car has a gun .

8. Be polite. Yes sir no sir goes a long way.  Don’t argue with him.

9 I have found that being polite to a police officer always helps….. If I have done something wrong  in the vehicle I just admit it or say i didn’t realize and apologize. That approach will get you less point on a ticket or a warning.  I almost never get stopped and when I do it is usually with a warning.

10. I am serious. I could have driven over the guys mother and he’ll give me a warning. Why. because I pose no threat.

12. Now of course I am white, middle aged and look like Rush Limbaugh so that helps… a lot. I am usually well dressed and well spoken. I don’t give off attitude.

13 I have no idea what to say to those of you who are black, Latino, or wear gangster clothes.  I would take my hat off and do your best Eddie Murphy impression.

14. when I was a long haired hippie and on drugs and wearing weird clothes… believe it or not I was the guy who was cool calm and collected around cops.  I was often the spokesperson. ” Yes sir. No problem here sir.  thank you sir . no sir yes sir. did you want to fuck one of the girls sir cause that one there thinks your cute.” I mean , I will do anything to keep the heat off and make sure the cops are feeling non threatened. I just try to be nice to them. Cause nobody else has been all day and they appreciate it.. And that means they will go find somebody else to eat.

15. If you have somebody with you who is being agro toward the cops, you tell that person to “shut the fuck up” in no uncertain terms. You tell the cop .. “You will have no problem with us sir, I am sorry for my disrespectful friend he was smoking crack before you so caringly stopped us ” and then you make sure a friend sits on that guy or girl.

16. Now you people of color, try to dress as white as you can. And talk as white as you can.  Wear Kakis and a blue oxford shirt and a red and blue stripped  tie. Talk about how you love the police and hope to be a police officer next year. Smile like Chris Rock and mention church. 

sorry that is how it goes.  This is a white mans world. White businessmen do rule…Next come our white women and our white children. If you are rich like me and live in a rich white city like Boulder you get treated like a Lord by the cops. Then again I don’t fuck up. I am not out dealing drugs, shooting people, robbing, stealing rapping or walking the streets. I am scared shitless.  But I get more points than you.

If you are black, Latino or homeless you will always be stopped by the cops in rich white Boulder or any affluent white neighborhood in America.

So how you carry yourself, what you wear and how you speak in the presence of law enforcement officers will make the difference of whether you live or die tonight.

Boulder police arrest sexually violent predator in assault, attempted vehicle theft

 

Boulder police arrested Sean Christopher Jackson (DOB 10/12/1985) on the evening of Dec. 26, 2013 after an investigation revealed that Jackson was likely responsible for assaulting an adult female and attempting to steal her vehicle.

 

At 6:03 p.m., Boulder police dispatch received a call reporting an assault in the 1500 block of Easy Rider Lane (near the 1400 block of Lee Hill Road). A 44-year-old woman who lives in the neighborhood had parked her car on the street and gotten out to retrieve some belongings from the passenger side of the car. At that point, a male approached her from behind and demanded her car keys. He grabbed her coat with one hand and began spraying her with pepper spray with the other hand. The victim struggled with the suspect and was able to run to her home where a roommate called police.

SVP Sean Christopher Jackson

 

The suspect fled on foot.

 

At 6:09 p.m., police dispatch received a call from a man saying that he’d been cut and needed help. The caller refused to give any other details to dispatchers. The man, Sean Christopher Jackson, was found in the area of the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express, located at 4777 N. Broadway (Lee Hill Road and Broadway). Jackson was bleeding profusely from at least one of his hands. Although officers tried to help him, he became aggressive and threatening toward the officers, who took him into protective custody.

 

The area where Jackson was found is approximately two blocks from the neighborhood where the assault and attempted car theft occurred.

 

Police responding to Jackson’s location on N. Broadway noticed a blood trail, which they were able to follow back to the 1500 block of Easy Rider Lane.

 

AMR transported Jackson to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of his wounds. One of his hands suffered serious lacerations, which needed stitching. He was later taken to the police department for questioning, then to the Boulder County Jail after his arrest.

 

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for exposure to pepper spray, and later released.

 

Jackson was uncooperative with investigators. He faces charges of First Degree Assault, Attempted Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft, Robbery, Criminal Attempt – Aggravated Robbery and Criminal Attempt – Aggravated Motor Vehicle Theft.

Jackson recently moved to Boulder, where he registered as a sex offender. Jackson is considered a sexually violent predator and the Boulder Police Department notified the public earlier this week, as required by state statute.

Boulder police: More info on officer-involved shooting

0

The suspect was wearing paint-ball type body armor, camouflage clothes and Uggs furry boots. He reportedly carried a large knife when approaching officers. 

The Boulder Police Department today is releasing additional details about an officer-involved fatal shooting that occurred on Sunday, November 24th at approximately 12:46 pm.

On 11/24/2013 at approximately 7:30 am, officers were dispatched to a potential domestic situation at 3009 Madison, apartment J208, Boulder, Colorado.  Upon arrival, officers contacted the victim, 41 year old Kirsten Stenseng, outside of the apartment.  It was the victim’s mother who had called police, concerned over the welfare of her daughter.  However, Stenseng advised the officers that nothing had happened between her and her boyfriend (suspect).  Officers attempted to contact the suspect, but no one would answer the door to the apartment.  Stenseng stated that she was leaving and officers observed her drive from the scene.  Other than a restraining order violation, officers did not have probable cause to believe any other crime had occurred.   The suspect could be charged with the restraining order violation at a later time.

At one time, the suspect had two hunting. assault style knives.

At one time, the suspect had two hunting. assault style knives.

On the same date at approximately 12:30 pm, the department received a call from a neighbor claiming the suspect had been yelling and throwing things outside the apartment.  The caller also observed the suspect with a large knife stabbing a wooden post outside the apartment.  The manner in which the suspect was yelling led the caller to believe the victim was in the apartment.  He was therefore concerned for her safety.

Officers were dispatched to the scene.  Upon arrival, responding officers were unable to locate anyone outside the apartment.  They could not find the victim, but did locate her vehicle, a gold Cadillac, which was back in the parking lot outside the apartment.  Based on information from the caller, and the fact that victim’s car was in the parking lot, the officers had reason to believe the victim was in the apartment and may be in danger.

Officers put together an entry team of four officers and attempted to make contact at the apartment.  After several tries and not getting a response, the decision was made to forcibly open the door to check on persons inside.  Soon after getting the door opened, but prior to getting inside, officers observed the male suspect start to run toward the door with a knife in each hand.  Several commands to “get down” and possibly “drop the knife” were given to the suspect.  The suspect quickly ran toward the officers while holding the knives in a high position.  One officer had to deflect the suspect with a ballistic shield as he ran past him and toward Officer Vincent Gallerani.  Officer Gallerani was unable to retreat before the suspect was upon him.  Thinking the first officer had been injured and he was about to be stabbed, Officer Gallerani fired three shots at very close range, striking the suspect at least two times.  The suspect immediately fell while still holding the knives.  The first officer then kicked the knives out of the suspect’s hands.  See attached photos.

After the shooting, it was learned that Stenseng was safe in a nearby apartment with another resident.  No one else was located in the suspect’s apartment.

The rifle used in the shooting was a Heckler and Kock (HK), model 416, .223 caliber rifle.  It is a department owned SWAT issued rifle.

During the follow-up investigation, threatening comments directed at Stenseng were found posted on social media by the suspect.  One comment indicated that he would kill Stenseng.

The suspect was a 42 year old white male wearing a black t-shirt, khaki pants, and body armor, the type one might wear for dirt bike riding or paint ball games.  He had shoulder pads and a breast pad, elbow pads, and shin guards on.  He was also wearing furry Ugg boots.  Suspect was later pronounced dead at the hospital.  We are withholding the suspect’s name until released by the Coroner’s office.

“It is always unfortunate when an officer has to use deadly force and it is a very emotional experience for any officer who is put in this situation,” stated Police Chief Mark Beckner.  “We are very thankful none of our officers were injured by this attack.  Additionally, our condolences go out to the suspect’s family for their loss.  From what we know right now, it appears as though the officers took reasonable measures to protect everyone’s safety, but were forced into a very difficult and life threatening situation.”

The officer who fired the shots is Officer Vincent Gallerani, a 14 year veteran of the department.  Officer Gallerani is a team leader on the department’s SWAT team and well trained in officer safety and entry techniques.  Officer Gallerani received a Chief’s Commendation earlier this year for his role in successfully handling an incident at the police department involving an individual who appeared might have an explosive device.

The officer who used a shield to defend himself from attack is Officer Nick Smetzer, a 12 year veteran and also a member of the SWAT team.  Other officers in the immediate area at the time of the shooting were Officer Ryan Lord, a 13 year veteran, and Officer Jenny Paddock, also a 17 year veteran of the department.

The Boulder County Investigative Team is continuing the investigation and will present its results to the Boulder County District Attorney once completed.  Officer Gallerani will remain on paid leave pending the completion of the investigation.

Boulder police: Conoco clerk robbed at gunpoint

0

Police are looking for a male suspect associated with an attempted armed robbery that occurred at the Conoco Gas Station, 3375 28th Street at 2:41 a.m. yesterday morning, Nov. 20, 2013.

A clerk reported the male entered the store armed with a small silver semi-automatic style handgun, placed the muzzle of the gun at the clerk’s head and demanded cash. The victim believes the suspect was then startled by a car approaching the gas station which prompted him to exit the store.

Boulder County: Updated transportation maps and a roads hotline available

0

  

ROADS HOTLINE

In addition to keeping an updated map and chart of Boulder County road closures, Boulder County has established a “Roads Hotline” at 303-441-3928 (staffed from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday). Residents and visitors with questions about county roads, culverts and bridges damaged by the flood can call this number for information.

 

GPS & MAPPING

The unprecedented destruction of roads and private property in Boulder County, especially in the central foothills and mountain areas, has rendered many roads impassable to public traffic. GPS devices and online mapping services may not be keeping up with road closures on a “real time” basis. The safest bet to ensure an accurate picture of open roadways in Boulder County is to check the Road Closures page on www.BoulderCountyFlood.org.

 

PUBLIC SAFETY & ROAD MAINTENANCE

Boulder County officials have made it an immediate priority to repair and reconstruct county roads and bridges damaged in the flood. Mountain residents are asked to minimize trips into and out of damaged areas to allow road crews to do repairs. Additionally, visitors and plains residents are requested to curtail recreation in the mountain areasbetween these points:

 

  • U.S. 36 (Foothills Hwy) and Hwy 72/Hwy 7 (Peak to Peak) (central west and northwest Boulder County)
  • Hwy 93/Hwy 7 and Hwy 72/Hwy 119 (southwest Boulder County)
  • p2pmap

 

Travel is permissible along the Peak to Peak Highway, north to south. Visitors can access the Towns of Nederland and Allenspark in Boulder County and Estes Park in Larimer County along Peak to Peak Highway (SH 72/119/7).

 

“It is incredibly difficult to rebuild roads with people on them, so please avoid the damaged mountain roads unless absolutely necessary, and minimize even residential trips to keep roads clear for heavy equipment and emergency vehicles,” said George Gerstle, Boulder County Transportation Director. “It is difficult and takes much longer for the crews to fix a road with traffic on it. The fewer people using the road, the faster we can get the work done.”

 

COUNTY ROAD REPAIRS

Boulder County Transportation is receiving many questions about when county roads in the unincorporated areas will be repaired and permanently restored. Recognizing that restoring all damaged facilities to pre-flood condition is an enormous task, the county is currently conducting a comprehensive damage assessment that will help establish long-term priorities and plans for infrastructure restoration.

 

County Transportation is currently working on several parallel tracks to restore immediate access, ensure public safety, and develop long term priorities and plans for infrastructure restoration:

 

  • Residential Mountain Access: County road crews are working to restore minimal safe access to areas that are currently inaccessible. This activity is taking place largely in the mountain areas so that residents can inspect homes and utilities can be restored. The county will continue working to maintain minimal safe access to mountain areas through the winter.
  • Damage Assessment: The County has completed damage assessments for approximately 67% of its road and bridge facilities. Most of the facilities still to be assessed for damage are in mountain areas that remain inaccessible. County road crews are constructing 4 wheel drive/ATV accesses to these areas so that the county can assess current conditions and flood damage.
  • Road and Bridge Restoration: For road and bridge facilities where damage is known, the County is developing cost estimates in order to design and construct permanent repair and replacement facilities. Right now this primarily involves roads and bridges on the plains in eastern Boulder County. Due to the impending winter season, construction will take place predominantly in the spring. However, if there is construction activity that can be undertaken during the winter effectively and appropriate, the county will pursue this possibility.
  • Stabilizing Bridges: There are several bridges and roads that sustained damage due to creeks leaving their pre-flood channels. The County is working to realign and restore creeks in select places where doing so presents further damage and allows existing bridges to function as they were intended.

 

SNOW REMOVAL

As winter approaches, crews will plow roads and keep roads open to the best extent possible. However, there may be a need for new and additional closures, should snowfall be heavy. In the mountains, residents will need to be extremely cautious as roads, particularly those that now provide minimal safe access, may be subject to wash-out conditions and require frequent repairs.

 

For public safety reasons and in order to allow crews to do their work, Boulder County’s Road Maintenance Division is requesting motorists to please be aware of the following issues.

 

  • Drive slowly and carefully; hazards that previously could be seen and avoided may be hidden after a snowfall.
  • Many roads are only one lane in places which will require extra diligence and courtesy on every driver’s part.
  • Give the right of way to oncoming snow removal equipment, it will be much easier for a car or pickup to find a location to stop or pull over than it will be for our large snow removal equipment.
  • Be aware that county roads that are not affected by damage may experience minor delays for snow removal due to diverted resources.
  • Allow extra time for travel in those areas affected by the flood rough roads, steep shoulder drop offs, single lane roads, visibility and other hazards will require everyone’s attention and vigilance.
