Armed robber attempts to drown police dog

15 Aug

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.—A police dog in Grand Junction is recovering after a suspect allegedly tried to drown the canine.

The German Shepherd named Oldo tracked down 38-year-old Richard Stieb a quarter-mile away from a suspected robbery late Wednesday.

Officers say Oldo bit Stieb and then Stieb grabbed the dog with both hands and they both rolled into an irrigation canal. An officer then jumped on Stieb. A handgun was found near where Stieb had been lying on the ground.

Because of that, Mesa County sheriff’s deputies think Oldo helped keep a bad situation from turning worse.

Oldo suffered bruises to his ears, face and neck. Water and small rocks were found in his stomach.

He’s expected to return to duty Saturday.

Rapist cop done killed himself

LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Authorities say a former Grand Junction police officer accused of sexual assault in Mesa County has been found dead in a hotel room in Jefferson County, more than 200 miles away.

Jefferson County sheriff’s officials said Wednesday that 35-year-old Glenn Coyne had an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The hotel’s housekeeping staff found Coyne’s body Tuesday.

Coyne had recently posted bond in Mesa County after being arrested last week on charges of first-degree sexual assault and first-degree burglary. He was fired after two years as a Grand Junction officer.

Authorities say Coyne was accused of assaulting a woman who called him for follow-up help after Coyne and other officers went to her house on a family matter.

Grand Junction: Fun Liberation Front strikes again

23 Aug

Reclaims streets from stuffiness and boredom

Communique:

It all started this morning.  With a declaration of war between two collective houses:

….We expect to meet you in a splashing good fight. Be Ye There, or Be Ye Square.

It ended in a pitched battle in the roundabout at 7th and Main, that stop traffic, reclaimed our streets for something other then just the same old consumption and capitalism.  A bus-driver stopped his bus in the roundabout and demanded a balloon and threw it into the melee. Traveling kids, collective members and some not-so innocent by-standers, all liberated the stuffy through-fare of commerce for a bit of fun, and some much needed cooling down on this 100 degree day.

The Fun Liberation Front, is everywhere, is no where, is everyone, no one, and any one. Take up this name and liberate your day from wage-slavery, traffic cops, consumption, and boredom. See you in the streets.
