If I were at a protest and I saw just one person with a gun on their hip I'm straight the fuck gone outta there bye felicia.
Which is very strange because there were other protesters in attendance who barely flinched even after the gun was fired and Keltner was executed.
They are obviously trying to get out of civil liability.
Dolloff was said to have been hired by a subcontractor who defends the execution.Video indicates slain protester was upset about being filmed by 9News producer
Isborn Security Services, the subcontractor that provided Matthew Dolloff as a security guard to 9News, says his actions were "strictly defensive in nature."
Matt Isborn, the owner of Isborn Security Services, said Wednesday that his company had hired Dolloff to work for KUSA-TV. He said the information released so far shows that Dolloff’s actions were “strictly defensive in nature” and his quick reaction may have saved the producer’s life.
KUSA-TV said it has hired private security guards for months to accompany its journalists at protests and that Dolloff was hired through the Pinkerton security company. The station said it had asked for guards that were not armed.
Denver officials have said Dolloff did not have a license to work as a security guard in the city. Companies that employ unlicensed guards can have their company licenses suspended or revoked or be ordered to pay fines. The city attorney’s office said Dolloff, Pinkerton and KUSA-TV could also face civil or criminal action.
Isborn’s statement did not address the licensing issue and he did not return a telephone call seeking further comment. In his statement, he said he has hired Dolloff as a contractor for assignments for over a year and he has “demonstrated professionalism and exceptional character.”
Yes, Dolloff defended himself after the guy with the Black Guns Matter was able to escalate the situation and provoke a reaction from Keltner. Actually, if you watch the video, Dolloff put his hands on Keltner's chest (assault) and then got bitch-slapped by Keltner, so Dolloff was the one who actually intitiated the physical confrontation.
The agitator's name is Jeremiah Elliot, and he and 9News producer, Zack Newman who accompanied the shooter were detained and questioned by the police.Newman is named in the affidavit
, but doesn't seem to be mentioned in any other reports.
The rest of the news outlets refer to him as "an investigative journalist," or "the producer." They appear to all be colluding to keep his name out of the out of their stories. I wonder if they are doing that because maybe their own news producers are also engaging in this same kind of activity? Prodicers seem to be the cause of a lot of problems in media because they are the ones in charge of the final product.
This is him admitting that he was at the rally, and in context, it appeared he showed up either with or at least around the same time that the Antifa/BLM terrorists showed up to meet the Patriot Muster. He seemed to have been going there looking for trouble or at best, to be able to get photos in order to make the Patriot Muster look bad so they could write their white supremacist conspiracy theory news stories.archivedarchived
In this video you can see Newman and Dollof clearly singling Keltner out and stalking him.
There was a third individual from 9News, photographer Helen H. Richardson. She was captured on video asking police "I just want to know where they are taking my guy." She has since deleted her Twitter account.
All of this looks very bad on 9News. At best, you could say that they, as a pro-Antifa, far left sympathizing media outlet, went to the rally with the intention to make right wing patriot types look bad and to be able to create sensational, Charlottesville-styled news content.
At worst, you can say that they intentionally showed up with Antifa and other agitators to instigate a violent reaction from right wing patriot types look bad so that they could be able to create sensational, Charlottesville-styled news content.
This looks so bad that I am surprised that the FBI has gone down there to cover things up.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, after gathering with Benghazi Marine hero John "Tig" Tiegen at Civic Center Plaza in Denver to show pride in America, hundreds of citizens departed a peaceful "Patriot Muster" feeling inspired. They filed out of the park bedecked in Old Glory, Thin Blue Line flags, and MAGA hats. Some came in wheelchairs and walkers. Students, parents, and grandparents all rallied. Military veterans turned out in force.
Tiegen's men came trained and prepared to defend their supporters. Denver police and Arapahoe County sheriff's deputies kept better order.
Remember: Three months ago, the "Back the Blue" rally that I attended with hundreds of others at the very same Civic Center Plaza was shut down by violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter vigilantes.
Remember: The Denver police union president, Nick Rogers, blew the whistle on how top brass (led by a police chief who marched arm-in-arm with BLM protesters this summer) issued a retreat order while the mob trampled our constitutional rights to free speech and peaceable assembly.
In July, the thugs wielded metal rods, skateboards, and megaphones to threaten and assault law-abiding citizens. Organizer Ron MacLachlan was beaten bloody just feet from me on stage. Republican statehouse candidate Laurel Imer was shoved down the stage steps by Black Lives Matter rioters. Conservative activist Lori Woods was allegedly assaulted by a crazed Antifa agitator and repeat arrestee Caryn Sodaro -- the only violent mob operative charged with a crime.
This time, Tiegen's event went more smoothly. Barriers kept rioters from invading the plaza. Casper Stockham, a black Republican congressional candidate who had also attended the "Back the Blue" fiasco, told me one prominent black militant agitator called him a "house n---a" and challenged him to a fight. The provocateur wore a "Black Guns Matter" T-shirt to deceive the conservative, pro-Second Amendment crowd. The same cretin later threatened to rape female attendees.
"It was disgusting, but those types of things don't stop me," Stockham told me. The "Patriot Muster" almost went off without a single hitch. Almost.
One man who answered the call to "stand up and show up" didn't make it home. From my close analysis of footage and interviews with witnesses, it appears the tragedy was engineered.
As the last group of "Patriot Muster" attendees walked to their cars, the same agitator who accosted Stockham and others also initiated a verbal altercation with 49-year-old Lee Keltner. A cheerful cowboy hat maker, veteran, and father of two from Brighton, Colo., his mission was "keeping the West alive, one hat at a time." While Keltner was trailed by the militant black agitator, a Trump-hating Occupy Denver radical named Matthew Dolloff and a local NBC affiliate investigative producer for Denver's 9News named Zack Newman conferred with each other nearby. At some point, Dolloff handed his cellphone to Newman.
Minutes later, photographers and videographers filmed the agitator aggressively daring Keltner to deploy a can of bear spray he was holding to protect himself as Dolloff and Newman stood by. Keltner resisted engaging in any physical brawl as the agitator escalated the situation. Mere seconds later, he walked away from the agitator only to walk right into what appears to be a deadly ambush with Dolloff. In an instant, Dolloff appeared to grab for something on Keltner's chest (his holstered weapon?) while Keltner slapped at his face. Dolloff then whipped out a gun and blew off Keltner's face as the veteran backed away, spraying his repellant in self-defense.
Newman gawked at the entire melee with two phones in his hand. But photos showed him, bizarrely, not filming the shooting despite being there on assignment for 9News.
Dolloff has been detained under investigation for first-degree murder. Newman was held, and then released.
Here's where it gets weirder and darker.
9News initially identified Dolloff as an armed private security guard contracted through Pinkerton security services. Turns out that he was unlicensed and operating as a security guard illegally in Denver. Pinkerton denied Dolloff was an employee and refuses to name the company, if one exists, that subcontracted Dolloff out. Newman did not respond to my questions about the exact nature of his relationship with Dolloff or how many previous times Dolloff had been his "security guard" at left-wing protests and riots over the past year.
Unanswered questions are piling up:
What did Newman and Dolloff discuss as they shadowed Keltner and the agitator?
Did they have beef with Keltner?
Did Newman or Dolloff know the agitator?
Was Newman, who works for a station that has demonized conservatives all year long while whitewashing the left-wing trashing of downtown Denver, aware of Dolloff's extensive social media footprint calling Donald Trump supporters racist fascists and posting "Rise Up" communist revolutionary propaganda?
What happened to Colorado patriot Lee Keltner should be a national outrage. It was, in my view, a brazen and cold-blooded media-political assassination. Casper Stockham agrees.
"Imagine if this shooting had been the other way around," Stockham said. "There would be nonstop, 24-hour coverage of it."
But because Keltner was part of the "Patriot Muster," and not part of the "Mob Muster" or "Liberal Media Muster," you'll hear nothing but crickets from American Pravda. Their silence is violence.
