Was at Horsetooth yesterday getting ready to ride when the police/rangers/SWAT came charging into the Soderberg TH and asked everyone to leave. We were not allowed to ride Horsetooth and went to Blue Sky. While going up the trail from Soderberg to Bluesky we noticed rangers blockading the road and guys in cammo with assault rifles. We asked multiple authority figures what was going on without any answers. Didn't see anything on the news. Anyone know what was going on?

I think it was about 10:30 am when they rushed in to the lot. No pics, they were very adamant about us leaving and quickly. The guys in cammo had assault rifles with scopes.

Um. Police departments are paramilitary groups. None of this is shocking. It's been, at least, a 13 year long build up. Did they roll up in their APCs?

From the SO FB page:

Larimer County Sheriff's Office Joyce, We had a subject making suicidal statements and trying to avoid law enforcement in the area, but we were able to take the person into protective custody and stabilize the situation. There was no danger to the public.

Sure, that's what they want you to believe.

Weird stuff. Plenty of interesting commotion just for one suicide watch.
