Evan Ebel's feces-smeared prison records and straw-purchase controversy

Update: Evan Ebel is dead, but the investigation into his suspected murder of pizza-delivery man Nathan Leon and Colorado Department of Corrections boss Tom Clements goes on, and it's making more ripples nationally than at any point since the news broke. As the Colorado Department of Corrections released his prison records -- see them and get startling details below -- the arrest of a woman accused of buying the Clements murder weapon for him casts new light on federal legislation about straw purchases.

First, the prison records. According to a DOC document on view below in its entirety, Ebel was first imprisoned on February 11, 2005 thanks to a three-year sentence, to have been followed by a two-year mandatory parole period, for robbery and menacing in Jefferson County. That June, he received an additional eight years on an assault charge in Adams County, which was to have run concurrently with the Jeffco jolt -- and in 2007, he was handed an additional four years for an assault on a correctional officer in Fremont County.

In all, Ebel served seven years, eleven months and 24 days in prison prior to his release on January 28 of this year -- fewer than two months before he's thought to have killed Leon and dumped his body in an open-space area near a Golden recycling center before shooting Clements in the chest at the front door of his Monument home and fleeing. His run ended on March 21, when he shot a Texas deputy before leading a car chase that ended with his 1991 Cadillac crushed by a semi and a law-enforcement bullet in his head.

During his stay in stir, Ebel racked up 28 penal code violations, including three cases for threats, ten for what's called "advocating facility disruption," two for verbal abuse, four for disobeying a lawful order, three for assault, another pair for damage to state property, and one apiece of "unauthorized possession" and "inappropriate conduct."

This potpourri of offenses is spelled out in separate reports filed contemporaneously. Some examples:

• "Ebel was told to back out of his cell. He turned toward staff and said, 'Or what?' He was given directives to slow down and not pull away. He did not comply with directives."

• "Staff were shaking down [Ebel's] cell. [Ebel] became upset that staff had taken breakfast and said that staff had better leave cuffs on next time or he would assault staff."

• "Offender was walking from shower when staff opened [deleted] cell. Staff looked away, Ebel put his stuff on the ground and ran into [deleted] cell, where he assaulted [deleted]."

• "Offender covered up window, refused to uncover window... OC Spray used. Resisted."

• "Offender verbally threatened staff with bodily injury...."

• "Offender fighting with other offender, struck offender with closed fists."

• "Offender in possession of 33 feet of string with weight and piece of metal in offender's shoes after being searched before going into exercise room."

• "Hit staff in face, cut to nose and finger. Subject slipped out of handcuffs...threatened to kill staff member."

• "Told C/O [deleted] that he would kill her if he ever saw her on the streets and that he would make her beg for her life."

• "Put feces of the cell door of another inmate...." (He repeated this tactic several times.)

• "Kicked his cell door, yelling and encouraged other inmates to do the same."

• "Engaged in a physical altercation with an exchange of blows."

Typical PRISON TORTURE ... drives inmates INSANE ... who then come back to bite society in the ass.

The U$A DESERVES all the Psychotic Homicidal Animals it CREATES!

Reap what ye sow, suckers!

The only part that saddens me is the murdering of Leon . Especially now we are hearing Evan had a 'List' !

You can't tell me Leon was on the list UNLESS he snitched on someone 'ranked' in that stupid f'n gang !

I bet these 'Corruptional' officers will begin thinking TWICE before kicking the living shit out of cuffed & restrained, inmates !

Just sad people are like this. He needed to be locked up forever. But now, he's gone. No great loss.

We don't want people like this back on the street. He should have got an extra year every time he did one of these things!

@Michael 

Ditch the "suspected".

He is not going to trial.

 "Post quoted an anonymous Department of Corrections source [who was not authorized to speak about the case]"

Find the source of the unauthorized leak, and fire them ... or expose the Post as the lying propagandists that they are.

@Nixonlooper: "Although Jack loved his son, he never asked me to intervene on his behalf and I never asked for any special treatment for his son."

Overly defensive much, Hick? Methinks thou protest too much!

@stuka1 ... the Hickster often become noticeably agitated and defensive in interviews, even on inconsequential and trivial topics. He might just be projecting his insecurities and feelings of political inadequacy given his fast rise to governor ... with no substantial prior political experience.

@DonkeyHotay @stuka1  Hotay, you have a point here . His heart's in the right place BUT EXPERIENCE wise ?.......

He's feeling a NON-DESERVANT  guilt . He hired a professional in Clements & HE FAILED to straighten out the prisons . NOT HICKENLOOPER !

@DonkeyHotay  That's NOT what I'm hearing from the men I'm in contact with, which covers most of the facilities .

@Juan_Leg    Rome wasn't built in a day.

The tragic irony of this situation is that Clements was the MOST LIBERAL, Reformist, REHABILITATIVE prison director this state has ever seen. He was against the old abusive punitive tortures that Ebel suffered, and was working to eliminate them.

This will set prison reform back DECADES ... to the detriment and suffering of all inmates.
