DENVER — The recent decision‍ by the Colorado Supreme Court to remove​ former President Donald Trump from the state’s presidential primary ballot has sparked controversy and raised concerns for the ⁤safety ⁤of the ‍justices involved.

Following the court’s decision, ⁢the Denver Police Department has reported investigating incidents directed at the Colorado Supreme Court justices and has increased patrols around their homes in Denver.

While the police department has declined to provide specific ‌details about the investigations, citing safety and privacy considerations, ‍they have ​assured‍ the public that⁤ they⁣ are working with local, state,‍ and federal law ​enforcement partners to thoroughly investigate‌ any reports of threats or harassment.

One incident, in particular, led officers to respond⁣ to the ⁣home of one justice ​on Thursday⁢ evening,⁣ although it was later determined⁤ to ⁣be ‌a “hoax report.” This case is still under investigation.

The ⁢FBI has also become involved in‌ the matter, emphasizing their commitment‍ to‌ vigorously‍ pursue investigations ​of any‍ threat or use of​ violence committed by individuals who use extremist views to⁣ justify their ‌actions.

The decision by the Colorado ⁤Supreme Court, ⁤which was ⁣made in a 4-3 ruling,⁣ overturned a previous ruling from a district court judge regarding Trump’s⁢ involvement in the​ January 6, 2021, attack ‍on the Capitol. The court’s decision has⁢ been met with​ both ⁢support and opposition, further intensifying the ‍situation.

As the state’s highest court has stayed its decision until Jan.⁣ 4, or until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the case, the ​issue remains unresolved. Colorado‌ officials have emphasized the urgency of‍ settling ‌the matter by Jan. 5, the deadline for ⁤the state to print its presidential primary ballots.

The ‍safety and security⁢ of the​ justices involved in this case are of utmost importance, and ​the authorities are ‍taking necessary measures⁤ to ensure their protection during‌ this challenging time.
