    POS Ex-Cop leads police on ANOTHER high speed chase...this time he kills two.

    This is un-fucking-believable. Some might ask why this guy was even out on the streets? The cops here in CO know that this situation is not uncommon. Fuck this piece of shit.

    CLIFTON - A Wheat Ridge man with a previous record has been charged with the murder of two teens after he crashed into their car on Interstate 70 while trying to escape state troopers.


    According to the Colorado State Patrol, 42-year-old Patrick Strawmatt was driving erratically Thursday night along I-70 in Clifton. After receiving a report of this, police responded. Strawmatt then gestured inappropriately to the responding officers and fled, reaching speeds of 120 miles per hour.

    At the same time, two 19-year-olds were driving along I-70 in a Saturn. Strawmatt's 4 Runner hit the teens' vehicle from behind forcing it to roll several times. Both teens were ejected.

    The two teens, Jennifer Kois of Brighton and Jacob Brock of Eagle, were taken to St. Mary's Hospital where they were both pronounced dead.

    Officers say it took the help of fire crews and over 30 minutes for Strawmatt to be pulled from his vehicle. He was also taken to St. Mary's Hospital where he was treated for what appeared to moderate injuries.

    Strawmatt has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, four counts of vehicular homicide, driving under the influence and several other charges.

    Kois' family released a statement on Friday afternoon:

    "First and foremost the Kois/VonFeldt family would like to express their deepest condolences to the Brock family on their tragic loss. We understand your pain and we are here for you," said the statement from Peter and Liane VonFeldt.

    "Jennifer and Jake were a special couple. Even though they dated just a short time, you could see the love they had for each other in their eyes. These were two special kids who enjoyed spending their time together, with friends and family. They will both be truly, truly missed."

    "We believe that this was not an accident, but a deliberate act of violence in the senseless deaths of two innocent young people."

    "With the history of Patrick Strawmatt's criminal past, we can only hope and pray that he is punished to the fullest extent of the law, keeping him off the streets and not endangering other innocent people."

    9Wants To Know has learned that Strawmatt was involved in another high speed chase last month where he was allegedly drunk.

    Park County Sherrif Fred Wegener tells 9NEWS that on February 15 he encountered Strawmatt in an altercation after a high speed chase.

    Wegener says Strawmatt led deputies on the chase where he appeared to be drunk. Wegener tried to pull him over.

    Strawatt would not stop and Wegener pulled in front of him in an effort to stop him. He says Strawmatt then drove his car into the sheriff's car causing $2,000 worth of damage.

    As deputies were trying to get Strawmatt out of his car, Wegener says Strawmatt punched him in the face.

    "I went into unlock the car, reached in to unseat belt Mr. Strawmatt when he punched me in the face," Wegener told 9NEWS.

    In that case, the Park County District Attorney charged Strawmatt with eluding police, second degree assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, driving without a license and DUI.

    "It sounds like in this episode that Mr. Strawmatt again, when he saw the lights and siren refused to pull over. It sounds like he had all sorts of opportunity's to pull over and refused," said Wegener about Thursday night's crash.

    According to the Lafayette Police Department, Strawmatt is a former officer. He worked there from January 1987 to November 1994.

    Kois' family also said: "She was a great girl who loved children. She was going to Mesa State College to be a child psychologist. She loved her family and friends very much and they loved her. She was a friend to all. This should have never happened to such a great girl. She will be missed very much. Our statement to each other has always been and will always be I love you FAD, which means Forever and A Day."

    All I will say is I can't understand how someone who used to be an officer, turned into such an uncaring ass.

    He's the sort of person who probably joined for all the wrong reasons.

    Does anyone know why he left ?

    Also as a point of law in that state it appears from the story that the defendant has been charged with the two murders and four counts of vehicular homicide how does that work?

    The ones who join for all the wrong reasons are the ones who make the news.

    Everyone, civilian and LEO alike, suffer from those fools.

    What I don't get is people who can't see beyond the fools. One of many things I like about LEF is the lack of blinders. This is the first place I saw this story.

    Oh, wait.. the story wouldn't be complete unless we took a shot at the police before we finish it...

    it seems every state experiences the same shit. Keep arresting these dirt bags and keep letting them out. This guy, cop or no cop, should have been in jail for a long time for the first time he eluded and punched the sheriff. As long as we have lawyers dirt bags will continue to walk among us to commit crimes. All we can hope for is a good out come and knowing what we did was right.
