Boulder to Ferguson protesters

No Charges for Boulder Killer Cops


As to be expected Boulder DA Stan Garnett did not bring charges against the two Boulder Police officers involved in the shooting of CU student Sam Forgy. Garnett and Boulder police have been silent since the night of the shooting in July. This is usually an indication that the DA will back the Police.

Forgys mother was in shock over the announcement and disappointed.  Garnett did reveal that an assault team of 4 officers entered the apartment complex where Forgy was standing naked on a balcony , screaming, high on acid holding a hammer. The officer had shields and enough power to overwhelm Forgy but decided instead to shoot him dead.

A high level police official told Boulder Channel 1 News “that the officer was new, inexperienced  and he panicked.”

A prominent Boulder Criminal defense lawyer to us, that ” it is typical for the DA to back the police officers in his jurisdiction. He has to work with them. He has to give them the benefit of the doubt. He hopes no one will call him out  on it. If he charged the officers , his career as DA and his political career would be over. This was a political decision not a moral one ”

A local police chief told us; ” police commit a lot of bad shootings. This is one and it should not be swept under the rug… but it has been.”

Another lawyer told us…. “This is a classic wrongful death case “… The family could sue the city of Boulder, the county, the police officers and the DA.  This is a high dollar case too. In the millions of dollars.  The attorneys will sue in civil court and the truth about what happened that night will come out. The lawyers will put the officers and the DA on the stand. It won’t be pretty. I would say the city will have to settle this for 5 to 15 million dollars before it goes to court.” The city and county do not want a case like this in court.”

Boulder Channel 1 news has learned “that a team of high profile attorneys and investigators have been working on this case at the behest of the family since the day after the shooting.”

BPD: Chief Beckner moving on


  Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner today announced his retirement effective April 1 after 36 years as a Boulder police officer.   Beckner joined the department in 1978 as a patrol officer, became a detective, sergeant, hostage negotiator, commander, including commander of the SWAT team, and, in 1998, was selected as Boulder’s police chief.

“Throughout Chief Beckner’s career, he has served with honor and integrity,” said City Manager Jane Brautigam.  “His commitment helped to define the culture of the Boulder Police Department and what our community expects from its public servants. I am very grateful to have had Mark’s counsel and experience as we dealt with community emergencies from wildfires to last year’s enormous flood, and as we worked to make Boulder a safer community. Through his leadership, we have built a strong police department that will continue to serve and protect the community for years to come.”

During Beckner’s tenure as chief, the Police Department opened the Communications Center, implemented the motorcycle traffic unit, received Colorado Accreditation through the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police, created the Major Crimes Unit, oversaw the planning and construction of the police training center and firearms range, brought Animal Control Services and Code Enforcement under the department, and worked with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation to create, fund, and staff a CBI DNA lab in the Boulder Police Department.

“It has been a privilege and an honor to serve Boulder,” said Beckner. “Over the past 36 years, we’ve covered a lot of ground from riots to Presidential visits, but what I will treasure most is the interactions and support from the community as we faced tragedies and celebrated successes together.   “Boulder has been a very rewarding career,” he said. “I am very appreciative to have served with so many fine men and women who helped build a strong, honorable department. And while it’s difficult to close this final chapter of a long and exciting career in law enforcement, I know that the department is in very capable hands, and I’m looking forward to new opportunities in my future.”

Over the next few weeks, Brautigam will be working with the police and city human resources departments to develop a search process for Boulder’s next police chief.

Mark Beckner: Fleet White not involved in JonBenets Murder…..mmm—kay



The Whites

For the third time in 15 years Boulder Police have repeatedly said Fleet White was not involved in JonBenets murder. Why do they keep bringing up Fleet White  then ?? And why now ? Why after reporter Charlie Brennan got the DA to release the Grand Jury findings which say John and Patsy Ramsey did it ?? White was in the house  the day of the murder, but why do the police keep going back to him ?? Are they setting a trap?? And for whom? Jon Ramsey ? These are the actions of a trap setter. Why are the police bringing this case back to life by retelling the whole saga of Fleet White and John Ramsey ??

The Ramseys

jonbenet 3

JonBenet at 6 in 1996. She’d be 24 in 2014.

The Saga is in short John Ramsey and Fleet white were best friends. They entertained together. JonBenet was friends with Whites daughter. White was with John Ramsey when he found JonBenets Body. But when John Ramsey and his wife Patsy went to Atlanta and went on CNN to claim their innocence… white and Ramsey had a huge falling out. Some say almost deadly and there were reports of a fight over a handgun on a couch.  White became a prime witness for the prosecution but in the meanwhile a California woman came forward and claimed white and his father had abused her. The tabloids and and some attorneys got a hold of the story and it blew up into a tawdry scandal. This case and story was laced with inappropriate sexuality concerning children  and the pageant industry.

Fleet White again wants the police to clear his name. Fine. But, Until John Ramsey is arrested and convicted by Boulder Police , DA and Boulder Jury there will be no peace for anyone involved.  The Ghost of JonBenet can be heard still to this day, screaming in the Boulder midnight January howling winds ” mommy why did you kill me??” listen carefully at night Boulder, you can hear here little voice.

Mark Beckner wants this case solved before he retires.

To correct past inaccurate statements and speculation appearing in the media, and at the request of Fleet and Priscilla White, the Boulder Police Department releases the following statement:
Since December 26, 1996, the homicide of JonBenet Ramsey has been the subject of widespread news reports and speculation by the media. A great deal of that reporting and speculation targeted innocent community members whose only connection to the crime was as cooperating witnesses. This includes the Fleet White, Jr. family of Boulder who suffered embarrassment and damage to their reputations. The Boulder Police Department recognizes the suffering the Whites have endured as a result of the accusations made against the White family during the course of the investigation.
The Boulder Police Department investigators have always considered the White family to only be witnesses in this case. The Boulder Police Department has never considered the White family to be suspects in the case. In 2000, the police department did investigate allegations made by a California woman to District Attorney Alex Hunter, as reported in the press, that were intended to cast suspicion on the White family. The department found no evidence to support the unfounded allegations. There has never been any evidence to link the White family to the JonBenet Ramsey homicide.
We wish to express our gratitude for the White family’s cooperation and contributions in regard to the investigation of JonBenet’s death.
Mark R. Beckner
Chief of Police


Scammers failing in Xcel ruse, so far



Boulder police have received three complaints from local business owners who say scammers pretending to be Xcel Energy employees have targeted their businesses.


The complainants have shared similar stories with investigators that begin with a phone call claiming that the customer’s utility account is past due and is about to be disconnected within the next few hours. The victims are then told to pay the bill immediately via a wire service like Western Union or a prepaid debit card like MoneyPak. In one case, the phone scammer wanted to meet the potential victim to get the money in person.


Scammers demanding "late" payments. So far, it isn't working.

Scammers demanding “late” payments. So far, it isn’t working.

The three businesses which were targeted received calls on Jan. 15, Jan. 17, and Jan. 20. In each case, the victims contacted police and Xcel to check that their accounts were in good standing.


So far, no one has fallen for the scheme and Boulder police would like to make sure that area residents and business owners are aware of the scam.


People should be wary of giving personal information like bank account numbers or social security numbers over the phone. It’s also a red flag if telemarketers use high-pressure tactics such as saying “you must pay now or lose your service.”


Anyone who has questions about their Xcel account may contact Xcel’s customer service center at 800-895-4999, or


Anyone who believes they may have been the victim of a phone scam may report it to the Boulder Police Department at 303-441-3333.

Suspect in nearly a dozen robberies arrested




Boulder police have arrested the suspect investigators believe is responsible for a string of robberies in the city and in Boulder County. Alishan Yapoujian (DOB 11/23/1988) is in the Boulder County Jail after being arrested on a charge of Aggravated Robbery.


Boulder detectives have been working with other law enforcement agencies during the investigations. On New Year’s Eve, the Colorado State Patrol located the black Chevy Blazer that Boulder police were looking for in connection with a robbery at the Conoco gas station, located at 4742 Table Mesa Drive, and another gas station located in the county, which occurred on Dec. 29, 2013. The vehicle was located in Niwot, CO.

Detectives identified a male they believed was the getaway driver of the Blazer in the Conoco robbery. He was cooperative with police and investigators were able to obtain information about the robbery suspect, Alishan Yapoujian. Police are not identifying the suspected getaway driver at this time.


On Dec. 31, 2013, Boulder police partnered with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office to execute a search warrant of Yapoujian’s residence, along with a warrant for his arrest, in the 6300 block of Arapahoe.


Police believe Yapoujian is responsible for 10 robberies in the city of Boulder, as well as two other robberies in Boulder County. Those cases are still being investigated. The Boulder Police Department has been working closely with the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office, and it’s likely that more charges will be filed against Yapoujian. We also anticipate further arrests in this series of robberies.


Boulder police are grateful for the assistance of the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, the Colorado State Patrol, the Lafayette Police Department and the Longmont Police Department.


Detective Kurt Foster is the lead investigator in the robbery cases. Anyone with information may contact him at 303-441-4329. Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776. Tips can also be submitted through the Crime Stoppers website at Those submitting tips through Crime Stoppers that lead to the arrest and filing of charges on a suspect(s) may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 from Crime Stoppers.
