The Denver coroner's office has released its list of homicides in Denver during 2012, and the total of forty is down from 47 in 2011. Indeed, 2011 saw forty homicides through the first three-quarters of that year, while 25 took place during the initial nine months of 2012. But that means the last three months of 2012 were its bloodiest quarter, with fifteen homicides taking place -- five of them at Fero's Bar & Grill on a single night in October.

SURELY this IS DUE TO negligent and incompetent Government PAID 311, 911, non-emergency and police! I have a LONG LIST of prejudice, negligence, selective enforcement, deliberate indifference to laws and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION that a COP told me they are ORDERED to NOT TAKE PROOF!
