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.

Fifa is investigating alleged homophobic chants by Mexico fans during the 1-0 World Cup win over defending champions Germany on Sunday. Sunday´s chants seemed to be directed at Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) was fined nine times for supporters´ homophobic chanting during the qualifying campaign. It has repeatedly asked fans to refrain from using the slurs. Javier Ruiz Galindo, head of the National House of Mexico for fans in Moscow, said the chant could be perceived in "many ways". "It´s not necessarily meant to insult somebody," he said.

Conservative political newcomer Ivan Duque has been elected president of Colombia. With nearly all votes counted. Mr Duque has 54% with his rival Gustavo Petro on 41.8%. The result raises questions about the future of a historic but controversial peace deal with Farc rebels. Mr Duque, who is supported by former President Alvaro Uribe, has said he will overhaul the 2016 agreement which gave the rebels places in Congress. The orthodox economist also says he will revisit crimes allegedly committed by the rebels during the brutal five-decade conflict with the government. Mr Duque is viewed as the business-friendly

Maybe you think of yourself as a person who really, really loves candy. Maybe there is even a particular kind or brand of candy that stimulates your dopamine receptors most of all, throwing you into sheer sugared bliss and delight. But is there a candy you love so much that you would name your child after it? Eric and Renee Cupp of Elizabethtown, North Carolina, said that yes, in fact, there is. With the last name "Cupp," Eric and Renee deliberately chose their daughter´s name, Reese Eve, after their favorite peanut butter and chocolate treat. And now, the family has won $10,000 in the Reese's Outrageous Fan contest in tribute to that

Most of what happens inside Apple Park, the iPhone company´s stunning new headquarters, is top secret. But Apple CEO Tim Cook recently disclosed one new detail about the work environment: Everyone gets a standing desk. "We have given all of our employees, 100%, standing desks. If you can stand for a while, then sit, and so on and so forth, it´s much better for your lifestyle," Cook said in a recent interview with The Carlyle Group´s David Rubenstein published on Wednesday. He then encouraged the billionaire financier to stand with him — just like a prominent feature on the Apple Watch. Cook has previously cited

People receiving government food assistance from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program are making less nutritious choices than people not receiving assistance, according to a new study. Published Friday in the journal JAMA Network, the study examined dietary patterns of people who participate in the SNAP program, people with incomes that qualify them for SNAP but do not to receive benefits and people whose income is too high to qualify for the program. It comes as the administration of President Donald Trump has proposed revamping the SNAP program and cutting costs dramatically by, among other things,

Jeannine Lee Lake decided to run for Congress after Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election because she wanted to show her teenage daughter that she was willing to take a stand against Trump’s pejorative comments about women and minorities. Lake, a 48-year-old black woman, said she ran for her daughter, and for her nieces and nephews. (snip) Democratic leaders have repeatedly declared that African American women are “the backbone” of the party. But when some of those same women run and win their primary bids for Congress, they haven’t had so much as a phone call from establishment leaders.

Gov. Jerry Brown signs law to end
underreporting of hate crimes in California

Following a state audit that faulted law enforcement agencies including the Los Angeles Police Department for underreporting hate crimes, Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a measure that seeks to improve the investigation and tracking of incidents based on race, gender and sexual orientation, officials said Thursday. The new law, which takes effect in January, sets minimum standards for how local law enforcement agencies investigate and report hate crimes, and addresses issues in a May 31 state audit that found hate crimes are underreported by 14% in California. “We can’t stop the problem unless we know how big it is,” said

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power.

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved?

While speaking to a group of activists in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton stressed that gun control is a “political necessity” and part of “taking back” the country. Clinton ran gun control as a candidate in the 2016 election and lost. President Trump ran as pro-gun and LMT Online reports that Clinton is now criticizing him for standing with gun rights organizations. She said Trump “did everything he could to ingratiate himself with the gun lobby, and is now doing everything he can to gut existing laws.” Despite losing the election, Clinton claimed that “the vast majority of Americans” support the gun control position, adding,

The floats at the Boise Pride Festival have changed drastically over nearly three decades. Dallas Chase knows this well. Chase, 71, attended the first festival in Boise, an informal gathering in 1989. She was part of the team that built the first "float." It consisted of a borrowed wagon from her neighbor decorated with painted cardboard. "It was done in secret in my garage," Chase said. In those days, Chase said festivalgoers wore masks to avoid having their identities revealed. Anti-gay protesters would line the streets, dressed in black and holding aggressive, defamatory signs, said Robert Franklin, who was also

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came.
