Good morning, Netizens...
We have an officer-involved shooting in the Spokane Valley this morning. The only problem they might have, in this case, is the police shot Wayne Creach, a 74 year-old Baptist Minister, an upstanding and well-respected member of the community and owner of the business where police were looking for a prowler.
From very sketchy reports this morning, the encounter between Creach and the Spokane Valley Police Department began approximately 11:15 PM last evening. Creach got out of bed to investigate a prowler next door at his business, Plant Farm with Country Charm, a local nursery. His wife heard a yell and three shots and that was it.
All we truly know right now is a good man and well-respected business owner has been shot dead by the Police. The Spokane Police Department and the Washington State Patrol, neither of which are particularly well-trusted in my opinion, are now in charge of the investigation due to the involvement of a Spokane Valley Police Department officer being involved.
It will be interesting to see how the spin-moguls manage to make it sound like Pastor Creach is at fault for his own death.
