DENVER (AP) — The   Colorado State Patrol has agreed to pay more than $1 million to the family of   a man who was shot and killed when he refused to allow troopers into his home   without a warrant.

Mark Silverstein,   director of the American Civil Liberties Union in Colorado, said Monday the   patrol has also agreed to set up training programs to prevent future   tragedies.

According to a   lawsuit, troopers Kirk Firko and Ivan Lawyer were investigating a traffic   accident in 2010 when they knocked on the door of Jason Kemp, who was shot   when he demanded to see a warrant. The two troopers were later fired. Charges   against the two troopers were dismissed.  (Gazette Telegraph – 1/7/13)
