This is Peter Wild from East Boston.
Two months ago he got his 15 minutes of fame when he saw some mice running around an East Boston Dunkin Donuts and shared videos of it on Faceobook, leading to mainstream media coverage because this is news now.
This apparently went to his head and now he thinks he’s some sort of hero that the people never asked for, so he took to Facebook last night to announce he’d be murdering MS-13 gang members before dying via suicide by cop.
I have no idea if he’s serious or not, but when you post shit like that on Facebook, whether or not you’re a drip looking for attention, people should take it seriously. He posted this at 4 AM and the few people who were awake attempted to talk some sense into him, but his hero complex got in the way.
“James Earl Ray day.” Renaming MLK day after the guy who killed him seems like a stable thing to do.
Shout out to Rachael for handling that about as well as a person could handle it. He’s since taken down the post and the thread, probably because his attention seeking, wannabe Batman manifesto didn’t get him the acclaim that he was hoping for. This guy definitely has a little Landon Steele complex going on, constantly bragging about all the great things he’s done, pretending to be buddy’s with the Mayor and the Police Commissioner, and virtue signaling with his American flag.
Part of me feels bad for him because the dude might have some screws loose.
But I don’t really know him, and he could be doing this all for attention. Either way, people who post shit like this should be brought to the attention of the police just to be on the safe side. We all agree MS-13 is bad, but we don’t need some attention seeking vigilante from East Boston to start killing people he randomly believes are in the Mexican gang. Because there really aren’t that many Mexicans in Boston, and the last thing we need is some dude in blackface starting a race war by killing Puerto Ricans.
