“People were running after a car ‘aggressively’ made its way toward protesters on I-225. I heard pops, which APD say came from a protester. That protester shot other protesters,” Thomas stated. “I watched as a woman who fell off the interstate was rushed to the hospital.”

The protests began as a call for justice for Elijah McClain, who died after Aurora police officers put him in a chokehold nearly one year ago.

    Skippy is clearly more of a danger to his own people than the driver of the vehicle was. Maybe he should stick to paintball games if he can find anybody who would want him on their team. Doubtful.

  2. “While the protestors were walking on I-225, a vehicle decided to drive through the crowd.” — nonsense!

  3. so someone was close enough to take those pics that appear to be within 6 feet of the “suspect” and yet no one knows who or where he is???? do you think we are that stupid???

  4. mind numbed says:

    sorry that suspect is already on a soros all expense paid trip back home or to another paid gig in another city. if you cannot identify him from those plain as day photos then he is not a colorado resident.
