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


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.

Mt. Park search for possible gunman ends peacefully


Early Tuesday morning, police were alerted to reports of a man in camo clothes carrying what appeared to be a rifle wrapped in a blanket in the park above Chautauqua meadows. Park Rangers and a Boulder County SWAT team searched the area and located the individual, who was armed with a .22-caliber pellet gun, in a field on city-owned property in the county. The situation has ended peacefully. Investigators have not released any information about what the individual’s intentions were, but public safety officials are comfortable that there is no threat to public safety.



OSMP rangers are planning to issue the individual a summons for violation of 5-8-4 (possession of a firearm on open space). We understand that this situation caused distress for members of the community, and we greatly appreciate the prompt response of police and our partners in the sheriff’s office.

CU officers deploy non-lethal weapons to make an arrest


At around 11:30 p.m. on April 19, 2013, the University of Colorado Police Department was dispatched to the area of 30th Street and Baseline Road on the report of a possible hit-and-run accident. Officers found the suspect’s vehicle, an older-model van with heavy front-end damage, at the Bear Creek Apartments parking lot. Officers approached the van and saw Jayme Lee McCoy, 32, of Boulder, seated in the second row with his dog, described as a pit bull. McCoy ignored commands to show his hands, muttered incoherent statements and appeared to be under the influence of drugs.


An officer opened the side door of the van and repeatedly shouted at McCoy to show his hands. Officers saw that McCoy was holding a knife. Officers continued to talk to the suspect and ask for his cooperation, but McCoy remained in the vehicle for a few minutes. McCoy then kissed his dog on the head and unleashed it. McCoy emerged from the van with his right hand tucked behind his right leg as if he might be holding a weapon. The suspect came toward officers and continued to ignore commands to show his hands. An officer deployed a Taser stun gun on the suspect, but it proved ineffective. Two other officers deployed a Taser stun gun and multiple PepperBall projectiles. At the same time, the suspect’s dog ran toward officers in an aggressive manner. An officer fired a bean-bag shotgun round at the dog, but it does not appear the dog was struck. The animal quickly fled the scene. McCoy was placed under arrest and transported to Boulder Community Hospital with minor injuries. A knife was recovered near the location where McCoy was arrested.


McCoy was arrested on the following charges:

  • Felony menacing
  • Obstructing a peace officer
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Traffic charges: Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, failing to remain at the scene after damaging another vehicle, driving a vehicle without a driver’s license and recording a second DUI offense.

According to CU-Boulder databases, McCoy is not a CU student or employee. McCoy has an extensive criminal background in multiple states for charges related to resisting arrest, obstructing a peace officer, burglary, weapons violations and drugs.


The Boulder Police Department is investigating the hit-and-run accident near 30th Street and Baseline Road.


The Case Number is 13-1008. The case report will not be available until at least Monday, April 22.

Newtown could happen in Boulder: Editorial


Boulder is not immune to crazy acts of  violence. It only thinks it is the way Sandy Hook did.  Boulder has had a history of extreme acts of violence by very insane people.

In the 1970s A Boulder high girl was raped , shot and murdered as she washed new car at Buckingham park.  A 10 year old girl was brutally murdered in her home . She lived a block from JonBenet Ramsey. The crime occurred 25 years before.

In the 1960′s a janitor ravaged and brutally murdered a female CU music student.  The crime scene was so bloody and cruel it cannot be discussed here.

In the 1980′s Michael Bell shot 5 people at a gun range in Boulder He killed two.  Sid Wells was brutally murdered with a shot gun blast to the head in a dope dealing operation gone bad. Involved was Robert Redford and his daughter. It was a celebrated case.

in the 1990s A Boulder county student held his girl friend Hostage with an AR 15 assault rifle at CSU . He fired rounds all day. A police sniper finally shot and killed him at 200 yards away.

In the 1990s 6 year old JonBenet Ramsey was brutally murdered in Americas most sensational child murder. In the same decade a 19 year old CU female student was abducted off Canyon Blvd and raped by an Asian gang. she was then thrown to the side of the road and left for dead.  CU student Susanah chase was brutally raped and murdered  at 19th and Spruce as she walked home from a night of Pizza and beer in downtown Boulder.

Also in the 1990′s Amanda McDonald was crushed by her boyfriends SUV as she drunkenly car surfed up flagstaff Mt. Boulder also experienced 3 days of alcohol riots in the 90s where scores of police officers were injured. For two years Boulder endured couch fires, firemen being targeted by Motoff cocktails

In 2011 a gunman shot and killed a star football player on the hill.

In 2012 a drunk young petite college girl wondered into the wrong house on the hill and was shot by a panicked psychiatrist aided by his hysterical wife.

1n 2012 Two students attacked their entire CU class by purposely loading brownies with a  potent Marijuana strain sending 5 of them to the hospital and making the entire class sick.  Some brush this of as a prank. but it was still an attack on a classroom.

Oh it goes on in Boulder

The level of violence has steadily increased in this city as it has all across the world.

Gun sales are up at the thriving gun store.

Driven by movies, video games, young men are driven to incredible acts of violence and mass shootings all over the world.
