Chief update about Aug 8 protest 1

Chief Swoboda here –

Thank you to everyone who has provided information about the unacceptable violence that occurred last Saturday during demonstrations in Fort Collins. With your help, we’ve been able to identify additional people who were prominently involved in this incident. We'll update once arrests have been made. This investigation is still active, so please continue to send tips. We want any parties who engaged in violence to be held accountable.

People representing a number of different ideologies showed up at the demonstration armed with various weapons, body armor, and a clear desire to incite violence. We have indications that a number these agitators were not from Fort Collins but had traveled here from other communities around the region.

We have a number of community organizers who have worked very hard to plan powerful, non-violent movements here in Fort Collins. We respect those constructive efforts and will continue to work with our residents to create a safe, inclusive community. The people who showed up looking for a fight last Saturday are not representative of those working to create positive change here in our city.

People should be able to exercise their right to peacefully assemble without fear. To those wishing to cause harm under the guise of any group, we don't want your false support, divisive tactics, or violent agenda. Unless you stand for the safety of all, Fort Collins does not want you here.
