Young: Denver police falsehoods followed by DA’s failure to hold cops accountable

Colorado Newsline: A few days after Denver police officers recklessly injured six innocent bystanders when they fired on a suspect in a crowded downtown area, police Cmdr. Matt Clark stood before cameras and presented the official version of what happened.

The suspect “pulled out a handgun and held it in a manner that the muzzle of the gun was pointed in the direction of the officers,” Clark said, adding that two of the officers feared the suspect was about to shoot them, so they fired at the suspect. A third officer saw that the suspect “was pointing that firearm at the officers” and also fired at the suspect, who was hit six times.

It’s chilling to watch that press conference now, because we have come to learn that Clark’s account was false.
