elk poaching

so if I'd been a cop, I could have shot this fellow (attached pic) off my doorstep.. one broken tine..

offhand could think of 3 different laws I'd have broken by shooting him..

the candlelit vigil had to be boulder, a small town entirely surrounded by reality..

I hope the DOW does the right thing here!!As well as the Police Dept. There has been instances where they sweep some stuff under the carpet!! They could hit him with a bunch of violations! Wonder if the DOW is getting any pressure from the Police dept? I know the community is really putting the heat on!!

My humble opinion is this,

My humble opinion is this, PROSECUTE!! If it were any one of us that did this we would surely be getting prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law... What makes them any better, cuz they wear a badge??? It is poaching regardless in my opinion.. Thanks for your time

Hang him in the courtyard so others can see what happens when they think they are above the law!

I've been wondering what is

I've been wondering what is holding up the Boulder PD from releasing their report on the incident. From what I heard it was suppose to of been done last week. Now the Colorado Parks and Wildlife said that their report would take about 3 weeks so it is getting close.

Even though I was in LE for

Even though I was in LE for 30+ years and know how things work, I have to tell you what should be a very simple investigation in this matter is taking WAY to long!!!  If he isn't at least reprimanded by his agency and prosecuted by the DOW for that offense, then something is rotten in Denmark!

As a bare minimum he should

As a bare minimum he should have to pay all fines to the max. Also, I hope the meat went to the poor.
