Ryan Donahue, 33, is charged with felony assault with a weapon and carrying a concealed weapon while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. Donahue, represented by defense attorneys Elisabeth Montoya and Ashley Whipple, appeared in court by video from Colorado and pleaded not guilty to both charges.
According to court documents, Donahue, who lives in Parker, Colorado, was in Bozeman and met a group of people at the Squire House on a Sunday night in November. While at the bar, Donahue told the man he is accused of pulling a gun on that he was employed with the DEA.
The group later decided to go to the Haufbrau, where court documents say they stayed until the bar began to close at about 2 a.m. The man and the
group of people he was with began to leave the bar and, while in the breezeway of the bar, Donahue allegedly pulled a Glock 17 handgun out of the concealed carry holster and pointed it at the manâs neck.
The man told officers that he didnât remember what Donahue was saying at the time, and that he considered trying to disarm him but was afraid he
would get in trouble because Donahue was a federal officer.
Bystanders, a bar manager or employee got the gun away from Donahue before law enforcement responded and arrested him.
FBI Director Wray on "The Cops Who Didn't Come Home"
Baltimore Police Officer Keona Holley, ambushed while alone in her car, died on Christmas Eve. Five days later in Illinois, Wayne County Sheriff's Deputy Sean Riley was killed during a call for assistance. On Dec. 30, also in Illinois, Bradley Police Department Sgt. Marlene Rittmanic was shot while attempting to locate the owner of dogs left in a car. And on New Year's Eve, Cleveland Police Officer Shane Bartek was killed in an attempted carjacking.
These four murders brought the total number of officers feloniously killed in the line of duty in 2021 to 73, the highest annual number since the 9/11 attacks. That's the equivalent of one officer murdered every five days. In a year when homicides and violent crime reached distressing levels, this 20-year high hasn't received the attention it deserves.
Especially troubling is that a record number of officers killed—nearly half—had no engagement with their assailant before the attack.
By the time the bloodbath was over, Remington had discharged nine bullets into Richards' body, mostly into his back, until his bullet-ridden body slumped out of his wheelchair. All were at close range.This atrocity was so egregious, the Tucson Police Department actually decided to immediately fire the officer of its own volition. Since departments usually fight tooth and nail to avoid firing a Killer Cop, this just shows how horrifically trigger-happy Officer Remington was. But simply being off the force is not enough. This man is a danger to society â and he's now a recorded killer.

Traffic stops â which are often motivated by hidden budgetary considerations because of the ticket revenue they generate â are the most common interactions between police officers and the public. Yet the police consider them among the most dangerous things they do.
That presumption of peril has been significantly overstated, but it has become ingrained in police culture and court precedents â contributing to impunity for most officers who use lethal force at vehicle stops.
If the girl in Ohio was attacking me with that knife I would want the cop to shoot her.
On FB I just saw the predictable post by Common who does good work in the community, but am terribly disappointed that he is contributing to the problem. Like clockwork, the picture of the "girl" in pigtails taken 5-10 years ago was posted with the usual rhetoric of this has to stop, this poor little girl, blah, blah, blah. They can disband the police if they want, but at some point the black community is going to have to face their issues.....or not. White people in general are absolutely powerless at this juncture in history other than to prostate themselves for self glory at the cult of victimhood exacerbating the situation, it is ultimately up to the black community.
