It has been confirmed that the Denver shooter who murdered Donald Trump supporter Lee Keltner in cold blood over the weekend is an unlicensed rent-a-cop who appears to have been illicitly hired by local NBC News affiliate 9News for the purpose of guarding reporters during a planned “protest.”
Matthew Dolloff, 30, was “operating without a security guard license in his reported work for 9News,” indicated Denver city spokesman Ryan Luby in a tweet following the deadly incident. “That could include criminal charges and action against Pinkerton,” Luby added, Pinkerton being the company that 9News contracted with to hire Dolloff.
Pinkerton claims that it does not actually employ Dolloff directly, though the company has yet to share the name of the firm for which Dolloff supposedly does work.
Dolloff was arrested on Saturday after he shot a single bullet at Keltner during a confrontation between far-right and far-left extremist groups outside the Denver Art Museum and the city’s main library. Keltner ended up dying from a gunshot wound to the face, and Dolloff is now being held without bail on suspicion of first-degree murder.
At the time of the shooting Dolloff had been in possession of a concealed carry permit that he obtained in June 2018, which was not supposed to expire for another three years, according to Elbert County Sheriff Tim Norton. As of Monday morning, however, Dolloff’s concealed carry permit was suspended.
According to Denver Department of Excise and Licenses marketing and communications manager Eric Escudero, “there is no record” that Dolloff has the necessary license required by the city to act in the private security function for which he was hired by 9News.
City law defines a security guard as “a person employed or engaged by a private security employer to perform security services.” And city investigators have already determined that Dolloff was acting as one at the time when he discharged his weapon at Keltner.
An announcement from the Denver Police Department (DPD) explains that “at the time of the shooting, the suspect was acting in a professional capacity as an armed security guard for a local media outlet and not a protest participant.”
Jack Posobiec says “big, big lawsuits” are coming for 9News
Keltner, a military veteran and hat maker, had reportedly been present at a patriot rally with his 24-year-old son when he was shot by Dolloff. A so-called “BLM-Antifa Soup Drive” was conveniently scheduled at 1:30pm to directly coincide with this patriot gathering, which quickly led to a violent conflict.
While Dolloff has been determined to have “no affiliation with Antifa,” according to DPD, right-wing media outlet Big League Politics has described Dolloff as an “ANTIFA-style thug” who allegedly committed cold-blooded murder.
Photos from the incident, which you can view at this link, reveal the moments before Keltner was shot. Keltner is said to have been standing his ground right before being accosted by Dolloff, prompting Keltner to use bear mace against him for his own protection.
This was apparently not enough to prevent Dolloff from discharging his weapon and taking down Keltner in an alleged executory act, which is now the subject of numerous lawsuits, according to Posobiec.
It is a similar situation to what occurred in Portland several weeks back when 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl, a member of Antifa, shot to death Patriot Prayer supporter Aaron Danielson, also killing him in cold blood.
Reinoehl, who also supported BLM, was clearly identified in video footage of the incident thanks to the black BLM fist tattooed on his neck. Reinoehl is now dead himself after being killed by police officers who had later tried to arrest him.
