Some of this is out. Some you are hearing here first time. My information coming from law enforcement and other in-the-know sources
Situation: Kevin Peterson, Jr. fired at police in Vancouver and was shot to death. This shooting happened just near a local safe house and my friends heard the firing. They did not see the fight. They did not approach the area.
Law enforcement informed me that the deceased, Kevin Peterson, Jr., is part of an ongoing drug investigation. His cousin, Darry Daquan Smalley, a Hoover gang member, was convicted today in Pierce County in relation to a murder.
According to a law enforcement source, Smalley fled the warrant for murder. Landed in Hawaii where Smalley was found pimping a young woman, apparently in her 20s. Smalley was arrested in Hawaii and extradited back here — and now off to prison.
Gang members and BLM/ANTIFA calling for direct action tonight in Hazel Dell area near shooting. They are making Peterson out to be the normal angel. Let’s wait for facts. (Not that rioters wait for facts.)
These are first reports and we know how those are. That said — take it from a war correspondent — rioters and many others never care about facts. They react on impulse. Thus we follow social media such as Twitter closely during wars/conflicts such as Afghanistan.
My advice: If you are in Portland/Vancouver area, be cautious this weekend. FSR (Flat Screen Riots) expected in the area.
I have a flight scheduled for Washington DC in the morning. I have not cancelled this flight. Monitoring Portland/Vancouver, but at this time still planning to fly.
