WATCH: Colorado Man is Killed by Deputies after Calling them for Help

Christian Glass sounded very paranoid when he called a 911 dispatcher in June, asking her to send sheriff’s deputies to help him after he ran his car off the road.

The 22-year-old man told the Clear Creek County sheriff’s dispatcher that people were after him as well as skin-walkers, which are evil witches in Navajo culture.

When the dispatcher asked if he had any weapons, he told her he had a couple of knives, a hammer and a mallet, geology tools he was using to collect rocks which was his hobby. But he assured her he would throw the items out the window to ease the fears of deputies.

“I will throw them out the window as soon as officers get here,” he told the dispatcher. “I’m not dangerous. I will keep my hands completely visible. I understand this is a dodgy situation.”

But when he made the same offer to Clear Creek sheriff’s deputy Andrew Buen, who was one of the initial respondents, the deputy told him not to do that, apparently fearing for his life.

That same deputy would end up shooting him to death about an hour later when Glass lifted the knife from the driver’s seat and pointed it towards another deputy who was standing outside his front car door.

Buen claimed he was trying to protect the other deputy from being stabbed but that deputy did not appear to be afraid because the car window was closed as it had been for the entire time they were trying to get him to step out of his car.

Also, another deputy who was standing on the hood of the car with his gun drawn – and had a clear overhead view of Glass inside the car – refrained from firing. Instead, he reacted in shock to the shooting.

“Oh, my God! What did we do?” the deputy said. “F*ck!”

The deputies then had to shatter the front car window with a baton to pull Glass out who was pronounced dead on the scene.

The incident took place on June 11 but body camera video was released Wednesday, displaying a much different scenario described by the sheriff’s office in June.

The initial narrative from the sheriff’s office accused Glass of being “argumentative and uncooperative” and claimed he had “armed himself with a knife” before trying to stab a deputy.

But the video shows Glass was afraid to step out of the car and never threatened the deputies with his knives until they started shooting him with bean bag rounds and tasers which was when it sounded like he said, “I’m going to kill every one of you” as he screamed out in pain.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
