Colorado killing spree preceded by violent rhetoric

"Active shooter in Belmar. Hear the choppers?”

That text from my friend Ian Silverii, who lives a couple blocks away from me in Lakewood, was the first I heard about the shooting spree that killed five people and left several others seriously wounded last Monday.

Locked in isolation with a Christmas case of COVID and accustomed to the helicopters that regularly fly over my house on the way to St. Anthony’s hospital, I had not noticed anything different before then.

I immediately began scanning local news. It was both scary and nauseating.
