Elk Shot by Off Duty Officer

Decision is suppose to be Friday at the earliest…

Since it happened in Boulder Colorado the hippies want an eye for an eye. Personally I think they should fine him for poaching a trophy animal ($11,500 Fine) and let him keep his job.

Oh, Boulder, I miss you sometimes.

You’re right, though, they will swarm over something like this. It’s symptomatic of having money and very few important things to do.

He probably won’t keep his job as he broke several DOW regulations along with internal department rules also.

He lacks common sense. The department is better off without him.

We had something similar to that in my hometown with a officer shooting a deer on a federal reserve.

Heh heh.
Just another trigger-happy cop.

It’s SOOO easy to judge from behind your keyboard isn’t it?

We don’t know all the facts. Maybe the elk was going for a concealed weapon.

Well it was raining and he was acting suspicious. Bet it wasn’t an albino elk.

Never Forget, Elk.

I think most of the people in Boulder have seen Dances with Wolves too many times. In the end it’s still a wild animal, just ask Roy Horn.

I can’t believe I just read that. I literally went back to the top of the page to see if I was reading The Onion. Good grief.

Beat me to it.

If the elk had not made that sudden movement, he would still be alive.

reading some of the comments on those links makes my head hurt.

Text between the officers on 2nd page.

Apparently formal charges have been set for tomorrow but who knows at this point.

If the cops are acquitted, the elk population will go buck wild.

They city of Boulder will burn.
