Olde Town Arvada Killer Ronald Troyke Mobile Phone Video

Earlier this month, 1st Judicial District DA Alexis King announced that no charge would be filed against Arvada police officer Kraig Brownlow for killing Johnny Hurley during an attack on Olde Town Arvada on June 21. At the time, prosecutors determined that Brownlow could not have known that Hurley was actually a hero who shot Ronald Troyke down after he killed another officer, Gordon Beesley.

But the Arvada Police Department continues to release material related to the case, including a video recorded by Troyke during a meeting with officers on June 7, two weeks before he terrorized the community and took Beesley’s life.

The previous episode took place at the Olde Town Arvada Library, where a couple of Arvada officers (not Beesley) were in the middle of beating a person with outstanding rulings; they had originally been called to the scene due to an alleged complaint of violation. When the man was remanded in custody, Troyke turned to the police and started barking at them while recording the interaction on his cell phone. He repeatedly referred to the officers as “sovereign citizens”, called them “terrible people”, criticized the department for not requiring body cameras (a policy that will soon change), and suggested that many law enforcers are “brainwashed”.

Here is the clip from 9News.
Troyke clearly had a problem with the Arvada officers. In June, the APD released parts of a document he left behind, which contained the following statements:

• “My goal today is to kill Arvada PD officers”
• “We the people were never your enemy, but we are now”
• “This is what you get, you are the people who can be used”
• “Hundreds of you pigs should be killed daily”
• “Today I want to kill as many Arvada officers as I possibly can”
• “I just hope I do not die without killing any of you pigs”

A more recently released letter excerpt shows that Troyke’s antipathy towards the police extended to further wards. It reads: “I dedicate what I did to the AurorA PD. Especially the officers involved in the murder and mockery of Elijah McClain.”
