Read the story in the Daily Camera. The Homeless Philosopher has long since abandoned hope for this area to be safe and family-friendly, and almost never goes to the Main Library at 1001 Arapahoe or Central Park. I do have friends who work at the library, however, and I was really concerned to learn a few months ago that a decision had been made by the powers-that-be to disarm the private security guards who patrol this facility and its surrounding grounds. Had this nut decided to enter the library itself and start shooting at innocent patrons, nobody there would have been equipped to stop the shooter. Thank goodness a Boulder PD officer did stop him before a real tragedy occurred!
Update from Daily Camera: Man shot by police along Boulder Creek dies.
