This morning started out as usual. But when I turned on the TV I knew it was going to be unusual. There had been multiple shootings down the mountain. But what was unusual is that one bad ex cop had shot others. The manhunt had now begun. We drove down the hill and an armored vehicle was coming up ? We did what we had to do then stopped to gas up. Several Sheriffs were there in unmarked vehicles and full body armor with assault weapons. Patti ( Spy ) went over with me and introduced herself . They explained that it was rumored that the killer was going to be hiding out on the mountain.
As we began to drive up we had to pass through several check points. The officers assured us that it would all be over in a couple of hours. Well that was eight hours ago and now they are warning people to stay in their homes. They found his truck burned out above a ski slope. Come to find out he had also been Naval Reserve with two tours in Afghanistan. Hummmm , The only Navy personnel that I am aware of over there are US Navy Seals. Now we have something to really concerned about. The Media instead of playing it for all it was worth , suddenly was playing it down.
As of this writing , they have not caught him and mountain visibility is down to five feet.
We expect high winds , blizzard like conditions in the next few hours .
There are over a thousand people up here searching for him. Some house to house , many others on the mountain. Sheriffs , LAPD,FBI,US Marshall’s and a company of Elite US Army Special Forces Alpine Troops called in from Fort Lewis Washington. All searching for one highly trained man on this mountain in a huge snow storm. His online Manifesto stated what he was going to do and that he had planned this for years.
Needless to say when I worked in my garage this afternoon my trusty Dan Wesson .44 magnum was my best friend. It’s bad enough when nuts on drugs go crazy , but a cop killing cops and threatening to kill as many other people as he can is way beyond nuts. IT’S INSANE.
No one up or down the mountain without proof of residency.
