A Denver police officer shot a hammer-wielding man who allegedly tried to attack the officer this afternoon behind a south Denver Kmart, authorities report.
The patrolman, whose name has not been released, was parked behind the store doing paperwork around 1:30 p.m.
The suspect was taken to Denver Health in critical condition.
“The suspect was wielding a hammer. The officer fired his duty weapon striking the suspect,” Ferrari said.
The police in Denver are out of control. They work for the government (us) and are members of unions, but there seems to be no accountability for their actions. We are becoming a police state where attacks on citizens are becoming more and more frequent. There are very few deadly attacks on police yet murders committed by police have become a regular occurrence and few are ever punished. It’s rare that an officer will even be docked pay for their attacks, many of which are unprovoked.
