Cop ERPO Red Flagged By Mother of Man He Killed In 2017 Colorado Police Shooting; Mother Claims They Have Child Together

Fort Collins, CO-(Ammoland.com)- The Larimer County Sheriff Department arrested the women who tried to use Colorado’s new red flag law to disarm a police officer that shot and killed her son in a violent confrontation.

As AmmoLand reported earlier, Susan Holmes filed an extreme risk protection order (ERPO) against Corporal Phil Morris of the Colorado State University Police Department on January 9. Officer Morris and another officer encountered 19-year-old Jeremy Holmes acting erratically with a large hunting knife. After a brief standoff, Jeremy Holmes charged the officers and forced the police to shoot him.

The investigation of the shooting cleared Officer Morris of any wrongdoing and ruled that he defended himself against Jeremy Holmes. By using the officer’s bodycam footage, investigators determined that Jeremy Holmes committed suicide by cop by charging the police forcing them to shoot. Susan Holmes claimed that Morris murdered her son in cold blood. The investigation highlights the fact that the police ordered Jeremy Holmes to drop the knife 36 times during the encounter.

Holmes claimed that she and Morris had a child in common. She said she interpreted the on the ERPO form to mean any relationship to a child and not just biological allows a person to take out an ERPO against the other person. The ERPO forced officer Morris to appear in court to defend himself against the charges, or he would have lost his firearm rights.

Second Amendment advocates point to this case as to how red flag laws violate the citizen’s rights. They claim that the laws run contrary to the due process clause of the US Constitution. They also believe that the law also violates the Second Amendment.

The judge denied Susan Holmes’ petition on January 16. He pointed out that Morris and Holmes did not have a child together. The judge didn’t believe that Holmes misunderstood the question about having a child in common on the form that she filled out to start the ERPO process. He believed she filed the ERPO out of malice.

The courts determined that Holmes committed perjury by lying on the form. Like much of the country, in Colorado, perjury is a felony. Holmes refused to turn herself into the police. They made multiple attempts to apprehend Holmes

Larimer County Sheriff Department finally arrested Holmes on Tuesday at her home. She streamed the arrest live to YouTube. Holmes refused to open the door to the police, causing them to break down the door to take her into custody. Viewers could hear Holmes resisting arrest.

“You’re breaking my arm! You’re breaking my arm! You’re breaking my arm! Stop breaking my arm,” Holmes could be heard screaming in the live stream video.

Holmes talked about how she does not support the extreme risk protection orders that are now law in Colorado. She states that she believes that red flag laws are unconstitutional. She filed for the ERPO because, according to her, she believes that the law should apply evenly to police and citizens.

Holmes stated that she is a Second Amendment supporter, and people shouldn’t give up their guns. The host of the live stream, Tim, who goes by username Timmybnm, stated that Holmes is a Constitutionalist.

Police are holding Holmes on a $5,000 bond.

It’s too bad perjury charges aren’t upheld against those who violate their oath of office.


IT WILL GET WORSE. As with restraining orders, judges will not risk their reputation or job (just look at the FISA Court)! Judges will ALWAYS play it safe and sign off on these and let the “system” straighten it out. Implied guilt first…. it is just what they will do so get ready–whatever that means…


It WILL get worse. Until Americans stop it or kneel.

Will Flatt

Wrong, kneeling wont fix shit. It will make it worse.

Yesterday I called the White House comment line (202-456-1111) to leave feedback for President Trump. I used this case, and the impeachment (coup) attempt to say “I hope President Trump has learned his lesson about Due Process.” Based on those comments, I encouraged him to vocalize opposition to Red Flag Laws as they violate the 1,2,4,5,6,&14th Amendments. The call taker was very pleasant and thanked me for calling. If more of us spent a few minutes to call law makers and the person who signs bills into law (both State and Federal) we can make our voices heard. Of all… Read more »


Here is my thing….who was the dumb ass judge who ALLOWED this Red Flag????

Deplorable Bill

Yup, I watched the body cam footage. The cop had no choice except to shoot. He did mention he was going to taze the bad guy and that is when the bad guy charged him with a knife. The cop had retreated and was still doing so when the bad guy charged. I think I would have shot also given the same circumstances, just not so many times. The woman had censored part of the video and put it out in the public to bring vengeance on the cop and then had him red flagged. Red flag laws are clearly… Read more »


She was trying to say the audio had been tampered with. It wouldn’t matter….open your eyes woman….he CHARGED the officer with a weapon!! You can see he tried backing up (way more than i would have!)


@P1500 – From the video it appears that the “victim” was attempting suicide by cop. When cop said he was going to try taser – “victim” realized he might fail, so stepped up his threat status. In the end he succeeded in his goal. I think the woman should be paying restitution to the officer for the emotional anguish of having to deal with having shot someone. No matter how justified, taking a human being takes a bit of one’s humanity.

Deplorable Bill

Finn, yup, the cop gave the kid every opportunity to stand down. If the kid had just put that knife down, he may be alive today. The kid kept saying his life was over. Clearly this is suicide by cop. Yes, there should be some restitution from the woman (she aint no lady) to the cop. She will also get to spend the rest of her life wondering how she could have raised that kid better. I have not read one word about the kid’s dad, why is that?

Arm up, carry on.


This is part of why America is turning to shit. You got lousy parents turning out lousy kids of no regard in life. It therefore is only natural that a brat kid becomes an adult who’s a thug that does something untoward in society that pays the ultimate price for it, and immediately the parents are all, “Who the EF is you to hold my child accountable, when even I never did?!?”

The same thing came to light with both Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. After all, even Ted Bundy and Jeffery Dahmer had parents.


Two take always – 1) if Homes would not have claimed child in common, no perjury, no arrest, it is what it is, the Officer is just out his time and cost to defend, and 2) noticeable by its absence is any mention the officers firearm(s) were ever confiscated prior to the hearing – no compelled voluntary surrender, no knock warrants issued, no 0500 raid!

Maybe Homes is right …. the ERPO is prejudice towards the citizenry, not applying (in part anyway) towards public servants!


Did they issue a red flag order against Holmes? Why not?


There will always be people like this among us. Problem is, they never wave a white flag.


This incident is further proof that democrats are suffering from a mental disease. They should 1. Not be allowed to hold public office, (look pig-losi, schiff, nadler and many others) 2. never own a firearm since 99.9% of shootings are committed by democrats or arabs, 3. shall be required to register with the same rules as sex offenders because both are a menace to society.


Actually, communist democrats demand the communist America they envision.
YOU must be disarmed. Democrats will not allow their slaves to remain armed.
Yet, the American people remain sedentary and silent.

The Tree of Liberty has stopped being refreshed since 1888. If you will not stand up for freedom and your Rights, do not be surprised when they are taken.


Isnt it funny how the people who complain about a lack of blood refreshing the Tree of liberty don’t seem to be so eager to go out and take action themselves? But boy oh boy, they sure will tell you how sedentary you are even as they do nothing. Beware of instigators urging you into committing violence. They do not follow their own advice, and they are hoping for some idiot to come along and be emboldened.

We all know how parched the tree of liberty is. The founders would be ashamed of us as they would be stacking bodies right fucking now if they were here with us today. Yeah there’s an overabundance of keyboard commandos spouting bellicose bullshit ever since the internet was invented. But that doesn’t negate 2 facts: 1) WE NEED TO WATER THAT TREE WITH THE BLOOD OF TYRANTS RFN, 2) NOBODY WANTS TO BE THE POOR SOB THAT IS THE FIRST TO TAKE A BULLET TO THE FACE, OR BE THE SOLE SACRIFICE BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WOULD FOLLOW. So shit… Read more »


@wjd Flatt The problem is that we have two types of people to consider when we talk about Jefferson’s quote. The first are people like Tetejaun. Instigators and anarchists. They talk a big game, but like you said, are too cowardly to step up and be the first. But the problem is deeper than that. They don’t actually follow through on living the constitution as it is written. They will gladly cry for revolution, but the way they want to fulfill it with blood wont fix the problem. Their revolution is the revolution of France. These are the Robespierre’s The… Read more »


Looks like I upset tetejaun again. A downvote with no response, no evidence against anything I said. Just a keyboard commando with hurt feelings.

Will Flatt, when you get a chance to read what I wrote I hope you will take a moment to reread it once or twice more and contemplate on it, whether you intend to reply or not. Hope your weekend is going well.

Will Flatt

Weekend is 5×5 now that my old injuries aren’t hurting at present. I grok what you’re saying 110%. But I think that given our current circumstance and how we’ve procrastinated in watering the Liberty Tree (it requires actual blood, not mere vigilance), the founders would see that the elimination of all these TRAITORS would be just, necessary, and proper. That’s the context I use in regards to “stacking bodies”.


@wjd Flatt Then you know that the time is coming. If we are going to do this the right way, we need people to understand the difference between the two types of individuals I explained, and we need to not take action at the Instigators urgings until the time is right. Virginia is on the edge, and other states in the country are not far behind. If we are going to get this country back to where it belongs we cannot afford to have people flying off the handle before hand and ruin everything. Remember, the left has a media… Read more »

Oh I agree 100%, and in fact the MSM is already working overtime to legitimize left-wing street violence and targeted assaults or assassinations now that Trump has beat them at their own sham impeachment and is on a path to winning in November. After Nov. 3, I truly and fully expect the Left to totally lose their shit and go LA Riots on EVERYONE from coast to coast! I’m telling the majority of people I know to prepare for full-on civil war on one hand, and on the other hands I’m trying to instill patience & the virtue of strategic… Read more »

@OV – Sometimes I lapse into old lingo. 🙂


“They also believe that the law also violates the Second Amendment.” First of all, it’s not just belief. We have pointed out and quoted Language in the Constitution showing that it is a violation of not just the second amendment, but several other parts of the Bill of Rights as well. Second, Constitutionalists don’t violate constitutional principles. Holmes seems to be more the “Sovereign Citizen” type, willing to say or do whatever she has to trying to get support from people when she causes problems. Unfortunately we live in a world where some people will try to use any case… Read more »


And it is a cop. THAT will get someone after you. An average citizen? Not so much.
