A Colorado woman has been convicted of lying on a Red Flag petition, and the worst fears of the 2A lobby have come to fruition.

Susan Holmes, a Fort Collins native, filed an Extreme Risk Protection Order petition back in 2020 against a Colorado State University police officer. On the petition, Holmes claimed that she and Cpl. Phillip Morris had a child together which is something that was not only provably false but completely made up.

A judge caught wind of this and immediately rejected the petition. Outside of the hearing, Holmes told reporters that she did “not feel like [she had] perjured [herself]”

Just last week a court found that she had in fact perjured herself. She would be convicted of perjury and attempting to influence a public servant. The penalties for this are fines up to $500,000 and six years in prison. Holmes will be sentenced on June 1st.

With this getting wrapped up soon, many are wondering why this woman would file the Red Flag petition against a police officer from a local school. This woman’s son was killed in an altercation with this police officer, the officer was cleared of any wrongdoing in the shooting so he was put back into this job.

It was pointed out in Armed American News that the only reason Holmes is facing charges for lying on this document is that the victim of her crime is a police officer. Had this been some nobody on the street like you or I there probably would not have been a case.
