let’s get something straight here, in Washington County all mexicans are listed as white males, and Aloha is mexican occupied territory, also white males don’t use knives, mexicans do. I looked at the photos close up and he looks like an Hispanic male, not an white male.
as a matter of fact there is a surplus store nearby that has a sign that says Machettes 5.99
