While Y’All Gossip On A Friday Night A Person Made Dead By Some Jurisdiction Has Still Not Been Named

by Travis Mateer

While matters of serious importance occur and get NOT reported because the authorities are NOT saying anything to any media about a dead person made dead by a bullet somewhere west of town, near the airport, some out there in positions of influence are interested in other things.

For example, I think it’s pretty relevant, on a breaking-their-information-blackout sort of way, to know the building where someone was shot on August 27th by an officer of some kind, although not much else is known.

To give you, dear reader, a better idea of where this building is located, here is a graphic for context:

How did I know this was the building? I asked around. Well, the first person I asked actually told me, a guy at the National Weather Service building. He confirmed my hunch that the wood on the door was a result of whatever happened inside.

Did I mention this weather service man used the word “barricade”?

What else did this guy tell me that might be helpful? That no one in authority, as far as he knows, has come by to take any statements? Is this lack of interest in what people working out there might have seen seem strange at all?

I’m writing this on a Friday night, so maybe I’m allowing my perspective to be skewed by the things OTHER people are interested in, which always seems to get more personal the closer I get to exposing something significant.

Anyway, thanks for reading!

    When possible, always get corroboration from a second, independent source, if a first source isn’t willing to be named, unless the first source has repeatedly and consistently provided reliable information in the past. Good shoeleather work!!

    Delaying the release of info could be for many reasons: Police are worried about copy cats, police are worried about revenge for killed person, but probably there highest priority is that the police are worried trust in law enforcement might be broken if a ‘good’ narrative isn’t cooked up first.

    Thanks for staying on it. It’s looking more interesting as time progresses.

    • I would consider those types of scenarios plausible if it wasn’t for the SWAT incident four days later and all the weirdness surrounding that “unfounded” incident. I spoke with an editor yesterday who confirmed they are still getting NO information about this incident and that it’s both unusual, and frustrating.

      Tomorrow I’ll be posting the first-hand account of what transpired at the Reserve Street camps on Thursday. The contrast of that incident to these other incidents should be thought-provoking.
