Can you believe those tree/bunny huggers in Boulder held a vigil for the elk tonight? Fruit cakes!

Yeah, but.... The fruitcake actions got a lot of press, and the outcry will get those cops some more much-unwanted attention. Kinda like the cop who popped the dog on a pole in commerce city. Went from public hero one day, to charged with aggravated animal cruely overnight.....

180 attended the vigil.
There was also a funeral on Thursday with less attendance.

Do they do that when one of them kills a deer with their SUV?


Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you a hunting license and that's pretty close.

A candlelight vigil for an elk? You have got to be freakin' kidding me.


Now some men like the fishing
While some men like the fowling
And some men like to hear the cannon ball roaring
Me, I like sleeping

Our local news this evening showed portions of a meeting the police chief had with the obviously upset public. He was pretty much holding the line of we'll wait and see what the investigation reveals. While he admitted to being embarrassed by the event, it didn't sound like heads were going to roll just yet.

There is a process that has to unfold, or legal action could come back to the dept.

I have a feeling once the investigation is done, jobs will be lost, as they should.

If a chief instantly jumped to prosecute one of his own, he would have none of his own left. He must protect them, first, then see if the head really needs to roll.
Poaching it it, for sure. But the Boulder reaction is priceless. Some comments on the Boulder news sites are phenomenal, I bet they would beat even Kalifornians.

Interesting. I'd wager that if an plain old poor fella in an beat up old pickup did this instead of an LEO he'd be in jail as an suspect awaiting what the investigation turned up and waiting for his court date.

Just plain ol poachers!! Hang their a$$es, scum bags........

Correct me if I'm wrong but since the elk was a 6x6 wouldn't that make it a Samson law issue?

Looks to me like they got in more trouble for lying about and covering up what they did than for any type of game law violations?

Edited to add, if you follow the link and read the charges, they did get charged with game law violations and a Sampson charge, those charges are misdemeanors though.



A wise man is frequently humbled.

As both a police officer and an elk hunter, I am ashamed of their actions.
