"Colorado cop who pulled gun on man picking up trash outside his home resigns"


' Atkinson, who is black and said after the incident that he felt he was racially profiled, showed Smyly, who is white, his student identification card, but the officer said he needed needed further proof.

On body-camera footage the city released Thursday, Atkinson can be heard saying, “I’m a student, I live here ... I’m doing my job.”

As Atkinson attempted to continue to pick up trash, Smyly told him, “You’re probably going to get tased,” and eventually pulled out his gun, claiming Atkinson’s trash grabber could be used as a weapon. '

That’s just like that scene in John Wick 3 where Wick does a backflip and uses a katana to chop off the arm of the grandmother in the Rascal scooter when she comes up behind him with a pooper scooper.

Or was that John Wick 2?

Boulder is not a "progressive" city. It's a bunch of very rich white environmentalists who take proactive steps to make sure nobody else feels welcome there, or can afford it.

The officer who resigned will probably be working for another town within a couple months. Wonder what his future interactions will be like?

this definitely qualifies for top billing in the "police state" category

Smyly should be assigned to a precinct where ALL the citizens are black; as a Karmic lesson.

Better yet, he should get a job picking up trash in an all black community for minimum wage.
