While there are certainly self-defense arguments that could be made here on behalf of Dolloff—and I’ve outlined many of those in the blog posts linked above—there would seem little doubt that Denver DA McCann has more than enough evidence in these photographs alone to amount to the probable cause needed to take Dolloff to trial on that initial charge of second-degree murder, if not some lesser-included charge such as manslaughter.

Instead, DA McCann has chosen not to try Dolloff on any charge whatever, with respect to his shooting dead of Keltner.

Prosecutors in America are given enormous discretion in deciding what cases to take to trial, and what cases to pass on.  Ideally, such decisions are based on the actual legal merits of the case.  Too often, such decisions are based on the political inclinations of the prosecutor.

  1. Did Denver Shooter of Right-Wing Protester Just Get Away With Murder?

    Murder? Maybe, maybe not.

    Manslaughter? Yes, I believe so.

    The naked partisanship is on full display in the “justice” system. Cops can’t shoot Antifa rioters who attack them with actual deadly weapons or they’ll be hung out to dry. MAGA protesters, OTOH, are fair game, deadly weapon or not.

    Prepare accordingly.

  2. Things like this will just encourage people to say “fuck the system” and go back to doing it the old fashioned vendetta way.

    Of course, Antifa is all about “fuck the system”, but I expect there may be a sudden change of heart at dark o’clock with a gun muzzle upside the back of their head.

    I rather expect black-bloc cosplay will lose it’s appeal when that starts happening.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
