8/4/21 Ford Fischer on the Death of Johnny Hurley, the Concealed Carrier Who Stopped a Mass Shooting

Independent journalist Ford Fischer tells the story of Johnny Hurley, a Colorado man who was killed by police after he stopped a mass shooting. Hurley came out of a store after seeing the shooter kill a police officer with a shotgun and then go back to his car to retrieve an AR-15. Hurley killed the shooter, preventing any further deaths, but was then shot by police officers, who claimed he had picked up the original shooter’s rifle. Fischer has made a short documentary about these events, and about Hurley’s life and voluntarist activism, hoping that it will raise awareness of what the Arvada Police Department has done, and prompt them to be more transparent about happened. Because the police have refused to release crucial security camera footage, the details of the day’s events remain murky.
