Video: Post reporter sees Christopher Lucki’s hate crime against anti-discrimination official
(Denver Westword Blog)
Christopher Lucki’s moniker definitely doesn’t apply to his current problems with the law.
Not only has he been accused of a bias-motivated crime, but the victim of his alleged actions is an official charged with fighting discrimination. And to make matters even worse from his perspective, aDenver Post reporter saw him do it and shot a video afterward of him admitting it — although when asked to identify himself, he declared, “Motherfucker’s my name.” See the clip and get details below.
At about 1:40 p.m. on August 28, the report says Sunila Tomas-George was sitting on a wall outside the Sheridan Hotel on the 16th Street Mall when she suddenly felt a blow to her head that knocked her to one side. She also heard a man, later identified as Lucki, screaming and yelling that she was a terrorist and an “Afghan” who was “out to get us.”
The affidavit identifies one witness as “Jonathan Bunch” — but he’s better known as Joey Bunch, a longtime reporter for the Denver Post, whose headquarters building is only steps away from the Sheraton. As noted in the report, as well as the Post article about Lucki (it’s written by Austin Briggs, which makes sense given Bunch’s personal involvement), he followed the suspect from the scene and captured an exchange on cell-phone video.
“Hey dude, why’d you just hit that woman?” Bunch can be heard asking. He adds, “We saw you do it.”
After a few quasi-intelligible syllables, Lucki can be heard responding, “She’s a terrorist, dude. She’s been stalking me for 145 days, dude. How would you like a terrorist stalking you?”
“I don’t know,” Bunch replies. “What’s your name?”
“Motherfucker’s my name,” Lucki answers.
“Well, the cops are coming and we’ve got you on video,” Bunch says. “You’ll be pretty easy to find.” The reporter can then be heard talking to a companion; among his remarks is, “Tell them where to find this asshole.”
