Once nicknamed 'Murderapolis,' the city that became the center of the 'Defund the Police' movement is grappling with heightened violent crime
Marnette Gordon was doing laundry at home in Minneapolis one summer morning last year when a call came from her 36-year-old son. She figured her son, Telly Blair, was checking in to see if she wanted a soda from a gas station down the street, where he often went for fuel and snacks. “Mom, I’ve been shot,” he said. “Call the police!” Marnette, her other son Tamarcus and his 12-year-old daughter rushed to the gas station from their home in the city’s north side, a part of town long beset by violent crime. Blair’s family came upon his blue 1986 Chevy Caprice at pump No.
Wilkinson said he intends to pursue legal action against the Platteville Police Department and all of the officers individually. The officer who parked the vehicle on the tracks has been placed on paid administrative leave while the Colorado Bureau of Investigation looks into the incident.
So far, no charges have been filed against Rios-Gonzalez. Fort Lupton police have referred her case to the Weld County District Attorney.
