POLICE KILL MAN WIELDING KNIFE AT FIRE SCENE
Denver Police shot and killed a man armed
with a knife in his fire-gutted apartment early Denver police
Friday morning after they said he lunged at them with the knife.
Steven Craig Evilsizer, 35, was dead on arrival at Denver Health Medical Center just before 6 a.m., police said. The incident started with a 3 a.m. fire in Evilsizer's apartment at Baker Tower, 330 Acorns St. Firefighters evacuated the third, fourth and fifth floors of the building and put out the fire in apartment 411 before it spread. Arson investigators determined that the fire started in Evilsizer's bed, Denver Fire Department spokeswoman Linell Galleon said. Evilsizer was not in the apartment when fire-fighters arrived. But as investigators were leaving the building, a resident told them he was in a building stairwell. When an investigator went to talk with him, Evilsizer acted "suspicious" and "paranoid," Galleon said. Evilsizer then bolted from the stairwell and tried to get back into his apartment, which had been sealed, officials said. Evilsizer ran into a neighbor's unit and grabbed a knife, Galleon said. He then climbed across the balcony to get back into his apartment. Meanwhile, investigators had called police. When police arrives, firefighters knocked down the door to Evilsizer's apartment. Three officers and two fire investigators pleaded with Evilsizer to put down the knife, but he wouldn't, said Lt. Frank Conner, Denver Police spokesman. In an attempt to get Evilsizer to comply, one office sprayed him with pepper spray. "It had the opposite effect" Conner said. "It enraged him and he lunged at them with the knife." All three policemen, Karl Roller, James Lucero and Dean Walker, opened fire. The arson investigators, who were armed did not fire. The shooting is being investigated by the homicide until, which will turn over its findings to the district attorney's office. Conner could not say how many times the three officers opened fire, but a fourth-floor resident who asked not to be identified said he heard at least ten shots. "There were a lot of shots," he said, "and I knew he was dead." Evilsizer had been arrested in Denver on drug violations in June and July. He had a Denver arrest record dating back to 1985. Several residents of the 11 story building called 911, Galleon said. Most residents were apparently awakened by either the building's fire alarm or neighbors. "I heard people screaming "FIRE"," said resident Katie McEntire.

POLICE OFFICERS EXONERATED IN AUGUST SHOOTING DEATH
Three Denver police officers have been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in the August shooting death of a 35-year-old catering worker. Assistant Denver District Attorney Chuck Lepley said Thursday that Steven Evilsizer "clearly presented an imminent threat" to the lives of officers Karl Roller, James Lucero and Dean Walker. Officers fired 23 bullets at Evilsizer and killed him Aug. 27 after he refused to drop a knife. Evilsizer, who was legally drunk and had a high level of cocaine in his body, had become involved in a confrontation with officers in his burned-out apartment at 330 Acoma St. Lepley said his decision is based on criminal law standards and does not limit any civil action or administrative action by the Denver Police Department. Evilsizer's father, Marshall, said the investigation was "pretty thorough."
"I talked about it with my family and we have decided we're not going to do anything," he said. "We're going to drop the situation and let it die." At the time of the shooting, fire investigators were probing the cause of the fire, which apparently started in Evilsizer's apartment. Evilsizer returned to the scene and picked up a knife with a 4 3/8-inch blade from his next-door neighbor's apartment when investigators said they wanted to speak with him about the fire. One of the fire investigators drew his service pistol when Evilsizer moved toward him, witnesses said. Then Evilsizer climbed from the neighbor's balcony to his own and went into his apartment. Police were called to help. They entered Evilsizer's darkened apartment, which had fire debris and residual smoke, the investigation showed. The officers and several witnesses said Evilsizer was crouched in the bedroom closet, holding what several people said was a blue Thermos and the knife. When Evilsizer refused several orders from the officers to drop the knife, Officer Darren Ulrich shot a blast of pepper spray into his face. Evilsizer then abruptly moved out of the closet, and the three officers fired at him "almost simultaneously," the DA's report stated. The shots were fired in rapid succession, and the officers stopped shooting at almost the same time, the report said. "These facts are all consistent with an instantaneous reaction to an immediate and significant threat to life," the report stated.

DEADLY FORCE OUT OF HAND
Tuesday, October 5, 1999 Section: DENVER AND THE WEST Page: B-01
Steven Evilsizer didn't have a chance. The 35-year-old catering worker was drunk and high on cocaine the night of Aug. 27 when a fire apparently started in his Acoma Street apartment. When fire investigators encountered him at the scene, they called for police backup. Three Denver police officers arrived, bringing the number of public safety personnel in the apartment to five. All of them were armed with guns. Evilsizer was behaving erratically, according to the police reports, and one of the officers attempted to subdue him with pepper spray. That only enraged him. He lunged at them. The police officers opened fire. The subsequent autopsy report showed 14 bullet wounds, including shots to his head, chest and abdomen. Five of the bullets entered his body from the back. Evilsizer was armed with a steak knife. Police policy stipulates that officers are authorized to defend themselves when it appears they are in imminent danger. Apparently, they determined that this was just such an extreme situation.
In retrospect, that explanation is hard to swallow. If the five officers on the scene, all presumably well trained, alert and working together, had attempted to wrestle the drug-addled Evilsizer to the ground, chances are one of those officers would have received a nasty cut, a superficial knife wound. And even though it probably would have been sufficient force if the officers had jumped him, most of us would believe they were justified in the heat of the moment if one of them had discharged a service weapon and shot Evilsizer in the hand or the leg to disable him. It's just awfully hard to understand why they riddled his body with gunfire, clearly shooting to kill and continuing to fire after he was down, even if his behavior with that steak knife was really, really scary. Denver police and the district attorney are reviewing the case, and this time we shouldn't settle for their all-too-familiar rationalizations for the use of deadly force. Police violence all across the country is growing. As Americans have embraced aggressive efforts to reduce crime, we've averted our eyes to it. Human Rights Watch has found that incidents of police brutality, including shoving, beating and manhandling suspects as well as unjustified shootings, have increased dramatically in 14 major cities over the past five years. While officers usually are vindicated after internal investigations, several victims' families have successfully pursued wrongful-death complaints. Settlements of those claims have cost Denver taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in the last year alone. In Denver, where a videotaped arrest last summer showed officers brutally kicking and beating a suspect; where police indiscriminately gassed a stadium full of college football fans because they looked like they might riot; and where an inebriated man brandishing a steak knife is blown away with 14 bullet wounds, it's time to take a closer look. The same old whitewash won't cut it anymore.

MOM TELLS OF SON'S BITTERSWEET LIFE AND ITS ENDING IN A POLICE SHOOTING
Sunday, November 28, 1999 Section: PERSPECTIVE Page: G-02 BY DEE EVILSIZER
I am the mother of Steven Evilsizer, who was shot and killed by police on Aug. 27. The indescribable heartache of losing our son has prevented me from responding until now, but I feel I owe it to Steven, his wife, his grandparents and his extended family to comment on these articles that have caused so much pain for our family. The media have devoted considerable space to the negative side of our son and how he died. How much space will they allow for his positive side? Regarding the articles:
Immediately after this tragic event, members of the family were inundated with phone calls from the newspapers, radio stations, etc. - each one pressing us for our reaction to the shooting in an obvious attempt to get us to lash out verbally at the police for their actions. (We even received calls and letters from lawyers offering their services for a lawsuit.) In the midst of our emotional anguish, we were trying so very hard to refrain from judgment of the police or making comment until after the investigations were completed. The few comments we did make were taken out of context, and it seemed to us that we were made to sound like cold, uncaring parents - when in fact, the pain and agony of losing our son (especially under such tragic circumstances) interspersed with the inevitable question, What could we have done differently?? were so debilitating. In one article, my husband was made to sound as though he would have recommended "five shots" (when he was trying to make the point that he did not understand why so many shots had to be fired.) At another point, it was stated that I did not condemn the police for their actions, then added almost glibly was my comment, "The police had a job to do." Reporters and media callers admonished us for not being angry enough. (If I were to direct my anger, it would be toward the dealers who reap huge profits from the lives they destroy with the drugs they peddle.)
While they were conducting their investigation, Chuck Lepley of the district attorney's office was very responsive and sensitive to our requests for information. We have now reviewed the investigative reports from the fire investigators and the DA's office and watched the taped interviews of the policemen and the fire investigators involved. As devastating as it is, we cannot deny the fact that Steven's state of mind (altered by the paranoia resulting from high drug/alcohol levels) and his refusal to comply with the policemen's repeated warnings and demands prompted their reactions.
Although we will never understand why the three policemen felt it necessary to fire a total of 23 shots to stop Steven, we are cognizant of the fact that our son's actions placed himself and others in harm's way. We realize he had to be stopped from injuring others with the knife he held in his hand. That's what I meant when I said I understood that the police had a job to do. Did all three policemen overreact? Many seem to think so. The truth is we will never know because we weren't there faced with making those split-second assessments and decisions. And, unlike in the movies, they do not attempt to shoot weapons out of the person's hand or shoot an armed person in the leg, etc.
We thank God that our son's actions did not result in death or injury to the policemen, the firefighters, or the occupants of the apartment building that night.
Additionally, we were horror-struck by two things: First, the horrible "mug shot" photograph that originally appeared on some TV stations and in the newspapers. Is it asking too much for the media to request a decent photograph from the family? Young nieces and nephews were horrified by the photograph because they didn't recognize that person as their Uncle Steve. (The Post and Channel 4 News later substituted another photograph when we pleaded with them to use one provided by the family.)
Second, was it really necessary to include a diagram representing our son's bullet-ridden body in the Oct. 4 article that appeared after the autopsy report was made public?
That depiction was not of a cardboard target for shooting practice - that was our son, for God's sake!! Do you have any idea of the emotional impact that had on the family?
I would like to tell you about the other side of our son. The Steven we knew and loved was sensitive and kind, was deeply touched by the music and lyrics of his favorite songs (he recently expressed to an aunt how the words of the song, "In the Arms of the Angels" by Sarah McLachlan, spoke to him these days). He loved fly fishing, camping, the Colorado mountains, skiing, Eric Clapton songs, airplanes, air shows, cars, Trivial Pursuit, reading, cooking - and his family.
Steven was the first grandchild on both sides and was still called T-Bone, a childhood nickname, by his grandfather.
There was a certain sense of melancholy as he watched his younger brothers go off to college, but he was extremely proud of them: Todd (a pilot) who would call Steve during the good times and ask if he wanted to go flying with him; and Brad (a musician) whose heart ached over the plight of his "big brother" and the call he feared he would receive someday. And did.
Steve's culinary skills (from years in the catering and banquet business) made family holidays very special. He even catered his own wedding! Grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins knew they could count on Steve for always remembering family birthdays and anniversaries and sending meaningful cards and notes to mark the occasion.
Steve derived such joy in doing special things for his friends and family in an attempt make up for some of the anguish he knew he had caused them. He was especially eager to work alongside his dad on various projects.
Recently, while house/pet sitting for a close friend who was out of town, Steve replanted the newly planted tomato plants that had surrendered to a late frost. He cared. It was reported that Steve was recently a banquet captain at the Hyatt Regency when in fact he was assistant director of outlets, had been named Manager of the Month last December, and had recently been promoted to executive steward due to his many achievements and awards at the Hyatt.
That error may seem trivial to you, but it's important to us in that it says so much about Steve's progress and achievements in overcoming his addiction. (Additionally, while at the Denver Athletic Club, he had been named Employee of the Year.)
Steven received tremendous support from the hotel staff during the periods when he appeared to be winning his battle over his alcoholism; and he was so proud of his accomplishments at the hotel. His memorial service was attended by at least 50 employees from the Hyatt, many of whom came forward to express personal thoughts and recollections of Steve. There were those who knew firsthand of the battle Steve fought every day.
And truly it was a daily battle. He used to say, "I fight it every single day. Some days I win; some days I lose."
And what prompted the lack of self-esteem that led to his addiction? As his parents, we ask ourselves that question every day; I wish I had the answer. Why does a young boy with an extremely high IQ turn to drugs? (Steve attended Mission Viejo Elementary, Laredo Middle School, and Smoky Hill High School where he had been active in scouting, sports, etc.) I do know that he still carried the scars caused by the seemingly harmless teasing and harassment by classmates in elementary and middle school (when "acceptance" and "belonging" is everything). Even as a slender adult, he used to say that every time he looked in the mirror he saw that fat kid that the other kids made fun of. If only kids could realize that words even more than actions can cut such deep wounds - wounds that sometimes never heal.
Whatever the cause(s), his addiction caused Steve to lose his feeling of self-worth, his job, his wife and ultimately his life. Seemingly at the top of his game in December, he relapsed in January (for whatever reason) and started the downward spiral from which he could not seem to recover. The cycle was always the same: relapse, followed by unbearable pain, guilt and depression (not to mention the brushes with the law), soothed only by more alcohol or drugs.
The weariness from his insomnia was a constant. He struggled valiantly for a long time and sought help through an extensive drug/alcohol rehab program, AA, one-on-one counseling, etc. Steven knew he had a wife and family that loved and supported him, but even that was not enough. (As parents, we are thankful that he had a loving wife who filled a void in his life no parent can ever fill; but she could no longer endure the emotional and financial/legal consequences of his relapses and blackouts.) He eventually caved in to the debilitating weariness that overcame him. He used to say, "I'm so tired of starting over." While his wife and family struggled to draw the line between "support" and "enabling," he set forth on a path of self-destruction. And our repeated attempts to intercede were in vain. He felt he had lost everything and had simply given up.
In my heart I feel that it was God who decided when Steve would leave this world, not the policemen that night. The man they shot was not the Steven we knew and loved; but he took our Steven with him.
We had "lost" the son we knew before the first shot was ever fired. Perhaps God felt Steven had struggled long enough with the emotional roller coaster caused by the periods of positive recovery shattered by the recurrent relapses.
Now there will only be one set of footprints in the sand. We take comfort in knowing that he is finally at peace - a peace that seems to have eluded him in this life. No more pain, no more struggle.
Our lives have been forever changed; there will always be that void. Neither tears nor unwarranted lawsuits will bring him back.
As we struggle to bring closure and to go on with our lives one day at a time, we are haunted by the events of Aug. 27; but we will not allow them to overshadow the good memories of a beloved son. In our hearts, he will live forever!
