The bar at 2700 Larimer St., a haven for music and art, has a new mural. “Bad Cop vs. Good Cop” recently appeared on the patio in response to violence by and toward police.

“We felt it was important to use this, our platform to speak to some of the social problems going on right now without necessarily taking a side,” Musa Bailey, co-owner and art director at Cold Crush, told 9News.

“This is not just an issue with cops,” he added. “This is an issue in the world in general right now.”

Bonus gem in the 9News story: Jon Shockness, lead singer of Air Dubai, is identified in the story simply as “a passerby.”
