  1. Why are you pointing out he worked as a truck driver, as if working as a truck driver is a red flag?
    What other jobs are on his record? Why did you not mention other occupations he had?

      • Ask media why race is SO important, not people here. Race is all that matters to media, the supporters of the BLM sham and others who tell us race is just a social construct. The hilarity eludes them/you.

      • It’s just why we been taught to think. Not nobodies fault. Most of us just don’t know any better than to just follow what we are told.

    • I’ll be honest, I’m curious about his race too, but there are many good reasons for not showing his photo. Regardless of his motives, he could be seen as a hero and martyr to some people, and his photo could be used to elevate him in social media. Also, why assume he is black or white? He could have been many other races. At this point any assumptions about his race is really just counterproductive.

    • That much we know. But was the shooting of Johnny justified? No detailed information on that AT ALL. Is that really how police work? I don’t think so .

  2. THE POLICE SHOT MR. HURLEY. HURLEY SHOT THE BAD GUY. THE BAD GUY SHOT THE OFFICER. THE ARVADA POLICE DEPARTMENT IS HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE WORST TRAINED DEPARTMENTS IN COLORADO. THEY HAVE SHOT MORE CIVILLIANS THAN CIVILLIANS IN THE LAST FEW YEARS. MOST OF WHICH WERE NOT ARMED WITH FIREARMS. I AM ONLY BASING MY FACTS ON WHAT I HAVE SEEN COME THROUGH THE FUNERAL HOME I WORKED FOR WHILE LIVING THERE. THIS ISNT POLITICAL. ITS A TERRIBLE TRAGIDY THAT ENDED POORLY. NOW THE TAXPAYERS IN THAT CITY GET TO PAY FOR THAT DEPARTMENTS NEGLAGENCE

    • OSOPENGU – I am sure you would of been running like a scared baby if you were there. Arvada police officers are well trained. Maybe you need to review your facts on what you saw…. Police officer have to make split decisions in seconds, that no amount of training can prepare your for. No one can say anything unless they have been in that situation. This is a terrible tragedy. Maybe you should join a police force so we can see how you change the world…

    • I believe it but they great at public relations which covers all these mistakes up. Today there is a. Ike ride to honor the dead cop. You going? Nothing on how Johnny got shot a month later or more than 10 or 13 things to know about cop killer. Again might not know their target when they fire but they do know who to keep happy afterwards. The public. So ya got to give them credit somewhere sometimes.

  3. If anybody living near Gilpin County can visit the courthouse and get the case documents for Troyke’s criminal assault case, that will assuredly have his race on them. I pulled his federal bankruptcy docs up on PACER but there is no race information available there.

    • The video footage released earlier looked like a white boomer with long gray hair. Some records show his birthday is in April 1962, can’t find much else.

      • I’ve seen the footage and I’m inclined to agree about his race; if I had to bet I’d say he was white, although there’s still a slight chance that he’s lightskinned of another race. The footage is too low quality to tell for certain. The Troyke surname is also not one you’d commonly see with another race so I’d still bet on white.

        I don’t think that’s his hair though, that’s the back of his face mask. You can tell by the way it flutters as he’s walking past the parked cars after he shot the officer, it doesn’t move like hair does.
