Colorado shooting: Details emerge
about suspect Matthew Riehl

CBS News and Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/1/2018 12:23:19 PM

DENVER -- Authorities in suburban Denver were investigating what led a 37-year-old man to fire more than 100 rounds in his apartment on sheriff´s deputies, killing one and injuring four others. Two civilians were also injured. The Douglas County coroner identified the suspect as Matthew Riehl. A YouTube user named Matthew Riehl posted a YouTube video Dec. 13, saying he wanted to replace Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock and railing against the sheriff and other officers in profane, highly personal terms. (Snip) Spurlock said deputies came under fire almost immediately and were shot "very, very quickly" after entering the apartment

Comments:
Shooter had a bizarre fixation on local Sheriff´s department which they knew about. Perhaps they should have smoked him out instead of entering the apartment.

SeeBS - they just can´t help themselves. What the heck was the point of that last sentence in the article? None, other than keeping their bias consistent.

Have to agree with OP. Why in the world would they walk into that apartment?

#2, if you read the article you would know that he is dead.

Nutcase with a fixation on the sheriff´s, and his friend/roomate (unclear) said he was ´having a nervous breakdown´, so apparently entirely irrational.

As to "Why in the world would they walk into the apartment?"....because they are law enforcement, and that is their job. It is a very difficult and dangerous job, and we need to understand when occasionally they make errors in the middle of a confusing, violent encounter. Sometimes their errors cost them their lives, other times they may shoot an innocent person. Not excusing obvious, clear errors, there are too many of them, but we need to appreciate that sometimes things are too fast moving and complex to be certain in a fraction of a second exactly what is happening. They deal with the insane violent people, so we don´t have to.

RIP Deputy.

Please excuse me if I overlooked text in this article which I skimmed. The Cheyenne paper reported today that the killer served in the Wyoming Guard, was deployed to Iraq in 2009, and honorably discharged in 2012. It is also reported that he graduated with a law degree from the U of Wyoming in 2010.

Good info #4. Wonder if he was having some mental issues related to combat? Of course, large number of troops who deploy are not ever in actual firefights, so impossible to know even approximately what he went through unless someone with person knowledge of his service comes forward.
The roommate/friend said he was "having a nervous breakdown". Some fixation on the county sheriff, apparently.

Thank you #3 for those comments. Officers cannot know what awaits them behind a closed door. We use available information, our senses, and our training to assess and manage the risk, making the best decision we can; then go in. Sometimes, as here, it goes from zero to suck in the blink of an eye.
I´ve just been sick over the loss of this officer, father, and husband. It´s just gut-wrenching.

LONDON — For more than a year, Finland has been testing the proposition that the best way to lift economic fortunes may be the simplest: Hand out money without rules or restrictions on how people use it. The experiment with so-called universal basic income has captured global attention as a potentially promising way to restore economic security at a time of worry about inequality and automation. Now, the experiment is ending. The Finnish government has opted not to continue financing it past this year, a reflection of public discomfort with the idea of dispensing government largess free of requirements that

YORK, Pa. -- One of five black women golfers who were told to leave a Pennsylvania club said Tuesday it felt like they were playing "with targets on our backs." Representatives of the Grandview Golf Club in York told the group at the second hole they were playing too slowly Saturday, said Sandra Harrison. After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave. Harrison said she and two other women left because they were so rattled by the treatment. "It was like we were playing

Seattle´s proposed tax to fight
homelessness may hit Amazon hardest

Seattle has a thriving economy and booming housing market, and is home to successful businesses like Amazon and Starbucks. But it also has a homeless crisis and an affordable housing problem. To help alleviate both, the Seattle City Council is weighing a proposal to impose a new tax on big businesses. The proposed tax amounts to 26 cents per working hour per employee in Seattle. That works out to roughly $540 a year for every full-time employee. Only businesses that generate at least $20 million of annual revenue in Seattle itself would be subject to the tax. The legislation would

MANHATTAN, New York -- A program bill that would ban all single-use, plastic carryout bags at any point of sale in New York State was introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo Monday. The action follows the release of the New York State Plastic Bags Task Force report in January, which outlined the environmental impact of plastic bags, single-use bag reduction measures, and proposed actions that the state could take to reduce pollution and protect New York´s natural resources, including a ban on single-use plastic bags. ´´The blight of plastic bags takes a devastating toll on our streets, our water and our

A Fresno State University professor who blasted former First Lady Barbara Bush as an "amazing racist" following her death was applauded at a weekend literary festival. Randa Jarrar was scheduled to headline Fresno City College´s LitHop on Saturday, but she declined to attend amid the uproar following her controversial tweets. Mention of her name in various LitHop speeches garnered heavy applause from the 100-person audience, according to the Fresno Bee. "I support Randa Jarrar´s free speech and I also denounce any violence against her or threats of violence against anyone else," LitHop founder Lee Herrick said to the crowd. Jarrar,

Members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity rallied at a Starbucks in Philadelphia on Sunday after their fraternity brother, Rashon Nelson, was arrested there earlier this month in an incident the city’s mayor called an example of racial profiling. More than 100 fraternity members and supporters attended the “Rally Against Racial Injustice” on Sunday afternoon, held near the downtown Philadelphia Starbucks where Nelson and his friend, Donte Robinson, were arrested on April 12 after the store’s manager asked them to leave because they hadn’t purchased anything. Starbucks apologized to the men in a statement last week, saying it was learning

BERKELEY - A coffee shop in Berkeley, the Elmwood Cafe, has closed overnight without warning. The abrupt closure comes after a famous comedian alleged that a racist incident happened to him at the cafe similar to the recent arrest of two black men in a Philadelphia Starbucks. On Monday, famous East Bay comedian W. Kamau Bell recalled on CNN how he says he experienced racism there. “In 2015, I was kicked out of the Elmwood Cafe because they thought I was harassing my wife and my 13-week old baby,” Bell said. Following the interview, online reviews roasted the shop for

US Winter Olympians who competed in PyeongChang are heading to the White House this week, but some of the most notable names are skipping the prestigious event. The 2018 Winter Olympics were, at times, used by athletes to vocalize their dissatisfaction with the Trump administration. Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy have all spoke out against the administration. They are among a large swath of about 60 Olympians who will not attend the White House reception this year.

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day. [Snip] Among allegedly conservative Republicans, Trump approval has climbed into the mid-80 percent range. All this despite continued stormy allegations by a

WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) urged Congress not to legalize marijuana, breaking with other members of his party such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is set to announce a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one,” The Washington Post reports. The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American. Sanders´s office has yet to release the details of the plan´s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.

NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton excoriated President Donald Trump for his treatment of the media, saying in remarks on Sunday that press rights and free speech are “under open assault” in the current administration, which she compared to an authoritarian regime. “We are living through an all-out war on truth, facts and reason,” Clinton said at the PEN America World Voices Festival, in Manhattan. “When leaders deny things we can see with our own eyes, like the size of a crowd at the inauguration, when they refuse to accept settled science when it comes to urgent challenges like climate change
