A passenger on United 328 took this video of flames shooting out from the engine. Some people told me they said prayers and held their loved ones' hands as they looked out the window. Flight was on its way to Hawaii from Denver. Glad everyone onboard is safe #9News
Every passenger I've talked to on United 328 wanted to thank the pilots and crew who safely landed the plane. Without them today could've looked a lot different.

Listen to the pilot make the mayday call: "Just experienced an engine failure. Need to return immediately" #9News
Passengers on United 328 describe a harrowing experience as they looked out windows and saw an engine on fire.

"My daughter was sitting on the window. I was like, don’t look. Let’s close it up. Let’s just pray. So that’s what we did. We held hands and said some prayers" #9News

NEW: @RepDianaDeGette, speaking on House floor, “This man (President Trump) is dangerous... he has invited sedition.” @RepBoebert speaks next beginning her remarks with “Glory to God.” Boebert is yelling. #copolitics #9News
Boebert: “I call bull crap when I hear Democrats calling for unity. They are only united in hate.”
DeGette’s larger point was that the President did not learn and change his behavior after his first impeachment. Boebert’s larger point was difficult to grasp. Something about how a Democrat who didn’t condemn looting over the summer is responsible for the Capitol insurrection.

NEW: Colorado tech CEO bragged about the storming of the US Capitol after posting about anticipated violence in DC. Chad Burmeister of Littleton promoted Three Percenter militia and QAnon claims, writing, “We will vote with our voices and ultimately guns.” #9News #copolitics
Burmeister, CEO of ScaleX, went to DC anticipating violence, sharing a QAnon-linked post on Facebook earlier this week, writing, “things could get ugly this week.” His posts repeatedly mention “The Storm,” QAnon shorthand for the day President Trump will execute his opponents.
Burmeister’s Wednesday Facebook post captioned “First guy to storm the capital today.” was edited Thursday morning to read, “Peaceful march to the capital.” Burmesister told me he never breached the Capitol building himself and said I could not use his photo.

NEW: The head of the Parker Republicans is doxxing public health workers in retaliation for COVID-19 restrictions, publishing their home addresses, promising, “Patriots are going to show you the errors of your ways.” #9News #copolitics 9news.com/article/news/l…
This is the second doxxing attack by a GOP leader in Douglas County this month after Rep. @PatrickForCO published a @denverpost reporter’s home address in retaliation for an article detailing how he funneled campaign donations to a family business.
It appears Parker Republicans leader Mark Hall has deleted his doxxing page targeting health care workers. He briefly posted, then removed, this apology.

This may sound like an embarrassing failure but remember the last recall effort still raised tens of thousands of dollars and was last seen spending those donations at a ham radio shop.
The Colorado Secretary of State's website notes that no recall petition signatures were turned in while the "Dethrone Polis" recall page announces that "Signature Collection is Complete"

I'd like to walk you through the process we've gone through for our investigation #PRONE

To review, we have found at least 107 deaths of people who died shortly after being held facedown and handcuffed.

Here are 100 of their faces.

Like many investigations, this one started with another.

Last year, I started looking into the 2018 death of David Baker.

Baker, a Navy veteran, died shortly after several Aurora police officers pinned him to the ground after a violent confrontation.

2/ Image
According to the coroner's report, Baker died of "restraint asphyxia"

He died, in essence, because he couldn't breathe enough air in and out of his body.
