Despite immediate declarations from the police and media that Denver shooter Matthew Doloff was a private security guard hired by local NBC news affiliate 9NEWS, evidence of his potential ties to Antifa and other leftists groups is mounting.
The buzz began on social media when photos of the suspect from the scene revealed a wrist tattoo of a "space invader," a symbol used by Doloff's company, Submission, which has released products with space invaders imagery and has supported Black Lives Matter protests in Denver.
The private security hired by 9NEWS, was definitely Antifa if you look at his wrist tattoo.— SlavTrapGod (@slavtrapgod) October 11, 2020

Writing under his tattoo says "Submission", a well known Denver "protest" group linked to another well known "idea". pic.twitter.com/iGxY9Es9PY— SlavTrapGod (@slavtrapgod) October 11, 2020
The Denver shooter who killed a Trump supporter has a space invaders tattoo, which is used and promoted on multiple antifa websites. Also, do “security guards” typically have string bean arms? pic.twitter.com/31niB5CeoC— Manny ( Parler: Manny@skippergreekisl ) lucky 17 (@mannygreekisl) October 11, 2020
Photos from the Getty Images archives place Doloff at a protest by Occupy Denver, a leftist group that back in 2011 occupied parts of Denver for nearly two months. See below.
Pictures found on Facebook show the same thing – Doloff is wearing a Red Sox hat and holding the American flag by the stars.

Also, the "security guard" narrative being pushed stinks to high heaven, and the speed with which the national media has echoed it is very suspicious.
Adding to the mystery is the initial arrest (since released) of the 9NEWS producer who was reportedly wearing a "black guns matter" t-shirt under his blue jacket.
Was the guard hired from a security service agency or did they just ask for volunteers off the street? Did 9NEWS run a background check on this guy before hiring him to protect their crew? Was he even licensed to carry?
So many things don't add up.
Investigators need to take a long, hard at the possibility that an Antifa-linked cell was hired – accidentally or not – by a local news affiliate to "cover the protests."

Man in blue holding the bodyguards phone is Zack Newman. He is the aforementioned producer at 9NEWS. pic.twitter.com/Z3W3tTjqhw— SlavTrapGod (@slavtrapgod) October 11, 2020
And here's a photo of the victim. Don't let them fool you that he was a white supremacist or right-wing racist.
Here is the victim, looks like a horrible racist, doesn't he? pic.twitter.com/S4NK1iWt8i— SlavTrapGod (@slavtrapgod) October 11, 2020
