Unlicensed “security guard” who shot, killed a Navy vet was involved in far-left activism


The man who posed as a “security guard” and fatally shot a Navy veteran at a rally in Denver reportedly had far-left leanings, according to news sources.

Matthew Dolloff, who recently found himself in legal hot water after he engaged Lee Keltner on Saturday afternoon outside of Denver’s Civic Center, was once an active participant in the Denver variant of Occupy Wall Street.

Dolloff (center in black) is seen participating in a rally in Denver in 2012 in a photo on his Facebook page.

As part of the Colorado-based Occupy Denver, Dolloff reportedly spent two years protesting against capitalism and perceived economic inequality.

The information was provided by the man’s ex-girlfriend, who told the Daily Mail that she dated him from 2010 to 2013.

The former Occupy member claimed to be a security guard during the Patriot Muster rally last weekend, and was acting on behalf of 9News, a local Denver TV station frequently criticized by local Coloradans for having a left-wing slant.

An investigation revealed, however, that Dolloff was not a licensed security officer.

9News claimed that Dolloff had been subcontracted through the Pinkerton security firm.

Despite the incident and his political leanings, Dolloff’s ex-girlfriend claims he’s not a bad guy.

“I can’t really speak on who he is today, but if he’s anything like the Matt I remember, he really is a good guy who would go out of his way to help someone in need. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I can’t defend his actions on Saturday, but he’s not a bad guy,” she said.

Dolloff, who is now married, runs a beekeeping business in the town of Elizabeth, called Lavender Moon Farm.
