6/6/06: Denver Officials Totally Unconcerned

I can't think of any other rationale for this story having been written but that a reporter was briefed to "write anything about the date" Or is the author accusing city officials of complacency?

"666" sense: Date marked with caution
While some say June 6, 2006, is a day to fear for its biblical significance, officials see little to dread.

With June 6, 2006, rapidly approaching, authorities
in Colorado and elsewhere are carefully watching to
see if that date - 6/6/06 - spurs demonstrations or

violent activity.

They are aware that 666 signifies the Mark of the Beast or the
Antichrist to some organizations and believe June 6 is a date
that could trigger problems.

"It's been a conscious question among some of our folks, so
they've been on the lookout for something," said
Lance Clem, spokesman for the Colorado Department of
Public Safety. "But they haven't seen anything."

Even so, some local police are being vigilant.

"The bottom line is that our intelligence unit is
familiar with 666 and its significance, but we
don't have any information about anything taking
place in Colorado Springs," said Lt. Rafael Cintron
of the Colorado Springs Police Department.
"However, we are certainly keeping our feelers
out to see if anything is happening."

Some dates and anniversaries can be calls to action
for white supremacists, racists, and conspiracy and
prophecy theorists.

April 19, for example, is the anniversary of the raid
on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas;
the Oklahoma City bombing; and the raid on white
separatist Randy Weaver's home at Ruby Ridge, Idaho.

The Number of the Beast, 666, is mentioned in the
Bible's book of Revelation and is believed by some to
be when the Antichrist will exercise power over Earth.

The Internet is full of websites that predict
terrible things could happen June 6.

One website warns that the "Bible Code says
2006 A.D. is the Year of the Beast" and predicts
that the Antichrist will reveal himself. It also says
there may be a holy war against Israel and that
the United States and Russia would be drawn into
a dangerous conflict as a result.

Several major law enforcement agencies in the
Denver metro area have seen no signs of trouble
and aren't planning to beef up manpower.

Since 1970, there have been 60 terrorist attacks
on June 6, with just one in the U.S., according to
the Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism
in Oklahoma City.

Do you think the Denver Post article might
have been used to "create evidence?" Note the
last paragraph in the piece below:

6/6/6 – a devil of a day

Those who look over their shoulders with trepidation every Friday the 13th might want to stay in bed on June 6, otherwise known as 6/6/06 - or 666, the Biblical number of the Beast.

Hellish things are supposed to happen on this most auspiciously evil day: expect comets, earthquakes, war - well, more war - and the appearance of the Antichrist himself.

Hokum? Certainly. But some people are taking it seriously. In the UK, according to, some expectant mothers whose babies are due on June 6 have asked for caesareans and inductions beforehand.

In America, authorities are aware of the potential of public disorder. "We are keeping our feelers out to see if anything is happening," said Lt Rafael Cintron of the Colorado Springs Police Department in The Denver Post.
