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

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.

About 60 students from a Chicago high school used their time during the National School Walkout protest to wreak havoc at a Walmart, witnesses say -- and police are investigating. Walmart shoppers and store employees were stunned by the destruction allegedly inflicted by Simeon Career Academy students Wednesday morning, FOX 32 reported. “These guys jacked up our store pretty good,” one Walmart employee told conservative news site The Red Elephants. “They pounced on cars in the lot, vandalized two of the school buses parked there, threw Gatorade bottles at shoppers, smoke bombs, and we heard gun shots in the parking

Tensions between Whole Foods Market and some of the most important brands it sells in its stores will come to a head on March 19, when they will congregate for a recently announced summit, sources familiar with the situation tell CNBC. The grocer notified certain vendors about the meeting by email last Saturday. It is set to reassure the brands of relations after Whole Foods´ sale to Amazon. It comes after a rocky few months for the grocer, which has been trying to shift from a local orientation to a national one, without sacrificing the selection and relations that set

FORT WORTH, Texas - Maybe it was a ripple. The blue wave many thought could hit Texas this primary election clearly didn´t materialize, but Democrats did turn out to vote, drawing their largest turnout in a non-presidential primary - more than 1 million voters - in decades. (Snip) Many Republicans posted on social media that they were busy working during early voting, but would show up at the polls on Election Day. And they did - in mass. By the time the polls closed, Republicans had cast a total of 1.5 million votes, nearly 700,000 of those on Election Day

You must always check the date on news stories popping up on Facebook. It’s embarrassing to register shock — James Garner dead? Oh no! — only to be informed that he passed away in 2014. So a week ago, when I noticed a CNN report headlined “Nation of Islam leader Farrakhan delivers anti-Semitic speech,” the first thing I did was see whether he delivered the speech in 2012 or 2002. I mean, talk about an evergreen headline, right? Feb. 25, 2018. Nation of Islam Saviours’ Day. In Chicago. Prompting me to then wonder if the local papers covered it. Nope.

An illegal immigrant charged with vehicular homicide in a fiery crash on a Colorado interstate bonded out of jail Saturday, a week after the deadly hit-and-run incident, despite being wanted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda, 26, allegedly fled the scene of the accident on Interstate 70 involving a tractor-trailer that caught on fire last week, leaving the driver to die, according to the Denver Police Department.

WASHINGTON — Bernie Sanders is back in the Senate minority. Hillary Clinton is selling books and playing with grandchildren. And the Democratic Party is still navigating the fallout from their bitter 2016 presidential nominating fight. The latest reminder came this week as party leaders failed to agree on how to reduce the influence of so-called "superdelegates" in picking Democrats´ next White House nominee. That class of party leaders — Democratic National Committee members, elected officials and others — overwhelmingly favored Clinton two years ago, inflaming Sanders backers who accused Democratic power players of stacking the deck.

Over the last three months, job gains have now averaged 242,000 per month. February’s payrolls gain was the largest since July 2016. February marks the fifth-straight month the unemployment rate has been at 4.1%, which is the lowest level since December 2000. Economists had expected the report to show nonfarm payrolls grew by 205,000 during the second month of the year with the unemployment rate falling to 4%.

A driver in New Jersey made a fatal mistake when he ignored a road closed barricade Thursday morning and drove on, only to run over live electrical wires downed by this week´s nor´easter storm. As 6ABC in Philly reports, the driver´s SUV erupted into flames in on Summit Avenue and Route 208 in Franklin Lakes just before 9 a.m., as the vehicle hit those live wires. In fact, the inferno was so bad, the driver had not been positively identified as of last reports. Fire totally gutted the vehicle, and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

A panel on MSNBC cheered the imminent demise of “old, kind of crusty” conservatives who support the Second Amendment and prevent young people from enacting gun control measures. Sunday on “AM Joy,” news anchor Joy Reid described conservatism as a “creepy, weird worldview” that “young people, who are a big, big cohort of the American population, do not share.” She asked her panel: “At some point, does the conservative media run out of viewers?” Kurt Bardella, a columnist for the Huffington Post, responded that there is “credence to the idea” that old conservatives, “through the process of evolution,” will “thankfully

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Trump administration are going about the sanctuary city issue in the right way. The very idea of so-called sanctuary cities is offensive to a lot of law-abiding Americans. Taking action against the liberal politicians who want to give safe harbor to illegal immigrants is a slow, easy pitch from the Democrats, and Republicans everywhere should take advantage. (Snip) Open-border radicals in California and other liberal strongholds must be held accountable. Of course, liberals would have you believe that they are only interested in protecting the poor, the oppressed and the hardworking who have nowhere

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

Sheet happens. Two days after a nasty fall in a hotel bathtub left Hillary Clinton with a broken wrist, the former Secretary of State was spotted making the best of a bad situation while continuing her tour of India. Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired. Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended a review by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility. The referral was based on IG Horowitz interviewing McCabe and identifying McCabe was lying about his instructions to FBI Communication Director Michael Kortan leaking to media on his behalf. Mike Kortan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok then proceeded to leak to Devlin Barrett (WSJ and WaPo), along with other journalists, with approvals from Andrew McCabe. After IG Horowitz referred McCabe’s false statements to the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), the OPR investigated and

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in
