A friend of our family, a Clackamas County weighmaster doing commercial carrier enforcement and unarmed, was shot and killed this afternoon when he tried to give a warning to a guy for a improperly loaded truck/trailer.
Ends up the shooter, who is still at large, was wanted on a weapons charge out of the Seattle/Tacoma Wa area and is a bona-fied bad guy that needs to be dead.
Serves as a reminder, you never know who you are dealing with.
He leaves behind a family, his eldest daughter was just married and has a good man for a husband.
Prayers please for this family in their time of grief and that this piece of human waste gets swift justice.
If you see this POS and you are capable take care of him.
