Aurora leaders hold counter-insurgency meeting

23 Mar

Take note of the ongoing operations by which our enemies intend to prevent an uprising in Aurora while the cops murder people left and right. These are the people who work together to keep peace in the streets while class society continues to rule: Cops, religious leaders, activists, volunteer cops called “peacekeepers.”


Below is from the Denver Post, slightly edited to reduce misinformation:

Aurora officials convened a meeting of volunteers, police and the U.S. Department of Justice office that helps prevent racial tensions in the wake of recent shootings in which four people have been killed by police and two others wounded by police bullets.

Barbara Shannon-Banister, chief of the city’s community-relations division, said her office has not heard reports of unrest from the community and that Monday’s meeting was standard procedure after a major incident such as an officer-involved shooting.

Among those in attendance were members of the city’s Key Community Response Team, a group of volunteers who meet regularly and respond in times of civil disorder, as well as the city’s human-relations commission and representatives of the local faith community.

Also participating was a representative of the Department of Justice’s Community Relations Service, which is described on its website as the department’s “peacekeeper” for community conflict and tension arising from differences of race, color and national origin.

Shannon-Banister said the representative is a regular attendee of such meetings and a member of the Key Community Response Team.

Aurora officers have killed four individuals since Feb 10, three of them in the past week. The first two murdered individuals were both Latino. Police and the coroner’s office have not released the identities of the two others killed in the most recent shootings. Continue reading

Third officer-involved shooting this week in Aurora

21 Mar

The Aurora pigs have shot 5 people this week, killing 3 of them. All of the people tried to defend themselves, and some shot back.

Looks like it’s that time and place


Hurry to play, comrade, before the media convinces you that the actions of the police are somehow ‘justified’.

No peace in the streets with police in the streets!

 

AURORA — A man is dead, two others were injured and a police officer also received injuries in a late-night shooting in Aurora.

This marks the third time in the past week that an officer was injured and a suspect killed in an officer-involved shooting in Aurora.

It happened shortly before midnight, in the 400 block of North Laredo Street when Aurora police officers encountered three male suspects in an industrial area, according to a news release from Aurora Police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson.

The shooting happened inside a fenced-in car storage lot behind the Automotive Service Center, a group of three buildings where auto repair and collision businesses — many of which are family-owned — rent space.

Police were responding to a possible car theft in progress when they found the three men in a back lot.

That’s when, Carlson said, the suspects hopped into a truck and tried to drive off.

Carlson said shots were fired.

Two of the three people in the truck were hit by gunfire. One man died at a hospital. A second man who was shot is being treated at a hospital, while the third man is being treated for injuries believed to have been sustained in an ensuing, post-shooting crash.

One officer received an injury to his head and was taken to a local hospital. It was unclear how he was hurt. Police said he is expected to be released this morning.

Carlson said police are investigating whether the driver drove at an officer and hit him with the truck.

The names and conditions of the people involved weren’t released.

Investigators are still determining who shot at whom and a sequence of events.

The officers who fired their weapons have been placed on standard, paid administrative leave pending an internal review of the shooting. Their names were not released.

Aurora cop shot; suspect killed after barricade

19 Mar

AURORA – Police killed a man accused of wounding an Aurora Police officer Thursday night and then engaged in a shoot out with police.

Around 8:15 p.m., an Aurora officer attempted a traffic stop near Colfax Avenue & Elmira Street, but the man ran off.

The chase went into a nearby courtyard where the suspect fired at the officer, according to Aurora Police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson.

The officer returned fire.

Police say the officer suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.

Initially it was believe the officer was shot multiple times, however, doctors now say the officer was struck by multiple bullet fragments, not multiple bullets. He was been treated and released from a local hospital.

Police set up a perimeter and began a manhunt for the suspect. During this effort, officers were able to contact the suspect who told them he still had a weapon, ammunition and planned to “go out shooting,” according to Carlson.

She says officers were able to determine the man had fled to an apartment complex at Colfax Avenue and Emporia Street and called in the SWAT team.

The SWAT team was able to establish communication with the suspect again.

Carlson says efforts to talk the man into surrendering were unsuccessful. Shortly after 7 a.m. Friday the SWAT team decided to try to force the man out using gas. The man tried to escape through a window. He was still carrying a gun, according to Aurora Police. Officers opened fire, killing the suspect. The man has not been identified.
