    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

JEFFERSON COUNTY – The Colorado State Patrol says a man in his 50s was killed Saturday afternoon when a postal worker crashed into him with her truck.

Troopers say the man was riding his bike along West 32nd Avenue, near McIntyre, around 5:30 p.m. when a woman driving a postal truck crossed the yellow line and hit the bicyclist. She then swerved and the postal truck rolled about 40 feet, according to troopers. She was taken to the hospital for treatment. The woman's name and condition were not released.

Investigators have ruled out drugs and alcohol as being factors in the case. They are looking at whether the woman had a medical condition or if the truck malfunctioned.

The bicyclist's name has not been released, although the CSP says he was from Lakewood. He was wearing a helmet.

West 32nd Avenue was closed from McIntyre to the Coors plant in Golden after the incident.

No other information was available Saturday night.
