Rollin Oliver, the man accused of killing a Denver police officer, claimed to be a member of the Park Hill Bloods street gang when he was booked into jail, according to documents obtained by The Denver Post.
Oliver, 21, is accused of shooting Officer Celena Hollis in the head as she attempted to help break up a fight between two groups of people during the City Park Jazz concert Sunday night.
Hollis, a 32-year-old single mother of a 12-year-old daughter, was working off-duty as part of a security detail at the concert when she was shot. She was in uniform.

Martinez said his department, which includes the police, sheriff's and fire departments, now releases more information about gang activity than it has in the past.
At a briefing Monday for news media, Police Chief Robert White said investigators didn't know whether Oliver was a gang member. He did acknowledge that investigating officers had been told that the confrontation that led to the shooting was sparked by gang tensions

The "good White folks" at Ugly America have no idea how much their antics are merely a mirror image of what is seen among the Progressive-Fundamentalists - regardless of race. Their latest bag of tricks reminds me of the "Rep Gifford shooting" in Arizona and how their progressive adversaries were quick to stitch together a narrative" against their political adversaries.
I think that all of us would agree that if a person moved next door to you who looked like Jared Lee Loughner, you would:
