Reader: Every Little Bitch Is Carrying a Gun in Denver Now

We recently posted about the frequency of officer-involved shootings in the metro area.

Indeed, there have been three such incidents in Aurora alone during the month of May to date.

We asked our readers why they think so much police-related gun play is happening and got a variety of answers.

For instance, this writer thinks a lot of the problem can be traced to the number of people who are strapped these days — an opinion he shared with the help of some memorable language.

Christopher D. Ortiz writes:
Every little bitch is carrying a gun, and they know if they kill a cop and get away they won't be caught because it's a town full of strangers. And the cops can't catch a cold.
