Albert Romero died in an ambulance on the way to Denver Health Medical Center after being tasered by a Denver police officer. Late at night, Romero was allegedly acting wildly, hitting things and then charged an officer when they attempted to restrain him.
The police then shot Romero with a taser gun, handcuffed him and was then sent to the hospital.
Romero's family, however, is not convinced of the police's story. People close to Romero contend that he was a hard worker and abstained from drugs and alcohol and wonder if the police apprehended him accidentally.

Unconventional action is an emerging network looking to complement the work of organizers in Denver and the Twin Cities with regional organizing throughout the rest of the country. Our goal is to build a horizontal, inclusive framework for protests that will disrupt the upcoming Democratic and Republican National Conventions. We are currently organizing meetings, propaganda, and consultas in our communities and encourage those in other regions to do the same.
President Hank Brown has quite predictably recommended that the Regents of the University of Colorado (CU) fire me – not, he claims, because of my constitutionally protected statements about 9/11 but because of my scholarship. However, as hundreds of academics around the country have pointed out, CU’s “investigation” has all along been merely a pretext, transparently catering to the political and financial interests which dictate “educational” policy at CU.

Though Grand Junction has long had a reputation as a conservative town, since its inception in 1882 there has been a minority that have actively dissented against that status quo and agitated for a better more equitable future. From Railroad strikes, to underground newspapers, to Blacklisted Dalton Trumbo and from anti-nuke protests in the Ô60s to antiwar protest in the 1990Õs and the 2000Õs Grand Junction and its surrounding region has a rich history of dissent and citizen activism.

Hours before 24-year-old Emily Rae Rice died at the Denver Jail, she called her mother and complained she was freezing and couldn't feel her feet.
The allegation is one of several Rice's family makes in a lawsuit filed Monday in Denver District Court.
The family claims that on the afternoon of Feb. 18, 2006, a jailhouse nurse told Rice, whom he suspected of being drunk, to "sleep it off." That same nurse told Rice to "stop being dramatic" when she collapsed during a prolonged check-in, the suit says.
June 20, 2007--The Troops Out Now Coalition (TONC) is outraged at the Denver City Council’s June 11th decision not to hear arguments for a proclamation to assure that protesters’ First Amendment rights would be protected during the Democratic National Convention in Denver in late August 2008.
On Saturday and Sunday the 24th and 25th of June, thousands of people attended the Denver Pridefest. Considering it has been ranked as one of the top 10 in the country, it is no surprise. Not only was this a massive gathering, but it took place on the very steps of our government buildings which represented a large step for GLBT acceptance in our community and (at least Sunday) there were no misguided preachers, homophobic protests, or clergy members trying to save souls.
