Police Shoot Man “Wielding” Hammer

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.

  1. Mr. Hoffman,

    What am I missing in this story? The suspect attacked the cop with a hammer and the cop shot him. Why do you say the police are out of control ?

  2. Mr. Hoffman,

    Okay then don’t answer my question. Unless there is more to this story, why wouldn’t the cop shoot a guy attacking him with a hammer? Besides, wasn’t a goal of the Obama stimulus bill to keep Police on the job ?

    You know a cop might just save your life one day. Then again, maybe he won’t. 🙂

    • It’s gotten to the point where cops now shoot first and ask questions later. They’re just looking for a reason to shoot somebody.

      • So, are you saying that you think the guy wasn’t attacking the cop with a hammer or are you saying that even if the man was attacking the cop with a hammer, the use of force was unjustified?

      • I’m saying the police too often overreact. They’ve murdered unarmed people for frivolous reasons and are rarely punished for their actions.

  3. So, was this particular incident an over-reaction or are you just making a general comment rather than one specific to this incident?
