2. There's something about this story that doesn't add up

Here's an account of the incident from Unicorn Riot, the collective that's been live-streaming some of the protests around the country. This guy was not a sovereign citizen type. He'd been involved with Occupy Denver. And it seems like he was neither mentally unstable nor set on confronting the police. So why did they follow him into his house after posting the eviction notice? And what really happened at that point?


Martin was also involved with the Colorado Foreclosure Resistance Coalition and would help out others in need. CFRC released a statement on their facebook page today following the news of his death.

“Martin took extraordinary efforts in the past several years to shed light on and bring an end to the mass of unjust foreclosures that have ruined the lives of so many. He worked on actions to help others stay in their homes, filed federal and state lawsuits, and even ran for Colorado State Senate, earning 25% of his districts votes all in an effort to expose the prevalence of unjust and fraudulent foreclosures.

"The Colorado Bureau of Investigation stated that Martin had turned and reentered his home, and after officers quickly followed him in the shootings took place. Although it is not clear what exactly took place inside the home, a friend of Martin’s who had spoken with him recently, has stated that knowing authorities would be serving an eviction notice soon, he intended to go back into the house to avoid any confrontation as the officers posted the notice on his door.” . . .

“Andrea Merida, co-chair of the Green Party of Colorado, said she had known Wirth for years and did not find him to be unstable. What I can tell you is he is absolutely a victim of the foreclosure crisis in America,” she said in an interview."
