Calamity Jane heard about this story several days ago….. It is now getting national attention.
The Boulder Police Department has launched an internal investigation after an encounter between a group of officers and a black man was captured on video and circulated online.
“The officer detained the man to investigate further and made a request over the radio for additional assistance to respond, indicating that the person was uncooperative and unwilling to put down a blunt object.”
“Officers ultimately determined that the man had a legal right to be on the property and returned the man’s school identification card…………All officers left the area and no further action was taken.”
“This is a very concerning issue, and one we’re taking very seriously………….All aspects of this incident, specifically the actions of the initial officer, are being investigated.”
