The sheriff's officer is seen telling Eslocker the sidewalk is owned by the hotel. Later he is seen pushing Eslocker off the sidewalk into
oncoming traffic, forcing him to the other side of the street.
You learn a few things when you make your living as an engineer and one of those things is how to find parcel ownership information which is used in
right of way acquisitions & boundary restrictions on roadway design.
I searched for the Brown Palace Hotel and found it was located at 321 17TH ST in Denver. I then did a quick Yahoo for +Denver +"Parcel Viewer" and
found a link to Denver's city parcel resource page where I typed in the address. A quick search found the parcel and by chooseing the map options, I
turned on the 2006 color aerial image overlay for the parcel which includes a very clear sidewalk & curb/gutter line for the streets surrounding the
property. (The slight offset between the building & the parcel line is because of the 3/4 perspective used to shoot aerial flyovers combined with the
elevation of the building's roof.)
Unless this man was standing inside one of the three triangulation points (an old holdover from years ago when parcels technically ran to monument
points located in the roadway on angles less than 30 degrees) he was clearly and blatently standing on publically owned, city, county, or state land
paid for by taxpayers and I hope he sues their asses for violating the freedom of the press over this.
