EDITORIAL: BY JANN SCOTT PUBLISHER
It’s on everybodys mind but no one wants to talk about it in writing. The Daily Camera wrote a pretty harsh inditement of the CU students behavior on the hill Friday night when Todd Walker was murdered. The Chancellor of the University of Colorado released a document laying out proper protocol when being robber: DON’T FIGHT BACK.
There are some big questions that may never be answered. Or maybe they will when the murder trial begins. Surely part of the defense will be that:
Elizabeth Roach was drunk, aggressive and itching for a fight. Todd Walker posed a huge football player threat. There was fighting in the streets. People were throwing bottles and rocks. Kevin McGregor was just trying to get away. And as he did he stumbled into Walker and Roach who didn’t like the way this working class skin head looked. They curse at him pushed him shoved him hit him. McGregor thought Walker was going to kill him so he reached into his back pants crack, pulled out a pistol and fired a warning shot. But Walker and Roach kept at him. Walker had him by the throat, So Mcgregor shot again and killed Walker. Roach let go of McGregor and McGregor ran. The riot crowd who were watching McGregor get beaten dispersed. Then McGregor came back as witness’s told Boulder Channel 1 news. But the crowd was hostile McGregor so he left not sure what to do? He really didn’t was to shoot at all. It was self defense!
You don’t think this will be the defense??? Hell it might even be true.
And what was the environment on the hill when Todd Walker was killed?? The conservative Daily Camera called it a Riot with 500 students chanting FUCK THE POLICE. Cops were getting pelted. Where were Roach and Walker in all of this?
Were they fighting. Was roach drunk and out of control. When McGregor tried to Rob them, did she not see the gun? Did she attack him? Did she keep on fighting even after McGregor fired a warning shot.? Was Walker trying to Keep Roach under control , away from McGregor so he wouldn’t shoot them. Maybe he wasn’t trying to protect her as much as to get her to cut it the fuck out. Did she get Todd Walker killed. In the end perhaps we will find this out at the trial. If there is a trial. Or was McGregor a crazed lone gunman caught up in the juice of a college drunken riot ? Was this his chance to finally use that gun he always carried. I suspect a combination of both.
Are the riots and murder connected. Did the drinking crazed student riots create the energy for this terrible murder to happen.? Is it not the college culture of drinking , disrespect and violence that led to this.? Is this not just the escalation of violence in general in our community. And now this!! A hand gun Murder!. We are all to blame for this is my take. I’d like to really know what happened up there.
