Re: “Burlington Councilors Press del Pozo on Police Use of Force

In my opinion if any member of the city councilors may have any personal involvements with either the Chief/Mayor first and foremost should be excused.

After viewing the video's, I found them very disgusting to say the least.
There is no need for anyone to be treated that way, ever! It is morally wrong in every possible way.

As for the use of force policy, this information should be have already been available and on the website.
Statistics were quoted for 2018, 2019 is not off to great start. I feel some major changes are needed in the Department starting w/the Chief & Mayor. Inexcusable, people deserve and expect more.

Please explain how a member of law enforcement/officer when placed on administrative
duty are able to receive income? Are there current procedures & protocols in place where a physicians opinion is needed prior to returning to active duty? There should be. This does not seem right ethically or morally, no one else would be given the same fringe benefit. Thank you councilors.

Re: “Burlington Council to Question Mayor, Police Chief About Death Investigation

This articles states the Departments use-of-force policy will be reviewed.

Current bill H.225.

Studies have been researched on the use of CEW's (conducted electrical weapons) and how they
have impacted individuals; both those without a cardiac condition and those with.

How is it determined when to use this non-lethal device?
How would a member of Law Enforcement know if the individual has a cardiac condition prior to use?

Re: “Man Who Died After Fight With Cop Had Broken Jaw, Eye Socket

Articles state that Mr. Kilburn "assaulted Officer Campbell". Articles also mentioned "no injuries were reported" nor did he receive any treatment (Campbell).

I'm curious to know who performed the wellness check on Mr. Kilburn, that information will probably come out at the hearing. Wondering if protocols will be amended now.

There's a lot to be said for transparency, BTown is far from Mayberry and the days of the Andy Griffith show are a thing of the past.

Re: “Cop Involved in Altercation at Hospital Sues to Obtain Bodycam Footage

After this case is reviewed, investigated, tried and when deemed appropriate, the public may or may not be given the opportunity to see the footage. With the investigation ongoing, in my opinion, I feel that the footage should not be accessed/viewed by the public, until after the trial.

In my opinion Mr. Kilburn was wrong for punching the Officer, absolutely.

In my opinion at the moment of time when the Officer made the choice and the decision to raise his fists, he was in the wrong. I also feel the Chief is in the wrong, even as he is commenting.

This truly is a tragedy for all involved. Hopefully the outcome will provide closure and a lesson learned to further prevention of occurrence.

Re: “Man's Death Following Fight With Burlington Cop Ruled Homicide

Homicide vs. murder

Colorado Vehicular Homicide DUI & DUID (under the Influence of any controlled substance)
Law 18-3-106 CRS

Colorado Manslaughter Laws: 18-3-103, 104, 105

Was the deceased carrying a medical card or wearing a medical identification bracelet?
How does the use of a taser affect anyone with a cardiac condition?
