The North Carolina Sons of Confederate Veterans is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for desecrating a Confederate grave in Bladen County last week.
The group believes that the vandalism may have been caused by someone attempting to dig up the grave in protest of the Confederate heritage, the News Observer reports.
It was reported last week that the damage was discovered by someone who was cutting the grass at Mount Horeb Presbyterian Church last Monday.
“Someone had dug down into a grave,” Maj. Larry Guyton of the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office told the Observer.
The vandal(s) created a hole between two to three feet in diameter and approximately two feet deep on the grave site. Guyton stated that his officers spotted something that appeared to be a human bone and ordered the hole to be refilled.
“While the miscreant’s motives are not confirmed at this time, if these actions were perpetrated as part of a protest against Confederate heritage and symbols, we as a society have certainly reached a new low,” R. Kevin Stone, commander of the N.C. Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans, said in a press release issued on Thursday, which was obtained by the Charlotte Observer.
The vandalism comes at a time when tensions in the country are high, and Confederate statues are being vandalized, removed, or destroyed on a seemingly weekly basis. In perhaps the most shocking incident to date, a mob of activists who were also in North Carolina pulled down and destroyed the Confederate Soldiers Monument.

The Bladen County Sheriff’s Office is requesting that anyone with information about the vandalism call them at 910-862-6960.

POLITICAL HIT? Pro-Trump Portland, Oregon Print Shop Owner Gunned Down in Parking Lot
The shooting of a Portland man is colored with political connotations.
A Portland man who operated a print shop was shot and killed in the parking lot of a nightclub on Saturday, with police thus far unable to apprehend a suspect or establish a motive. 40-year old William Peters was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Acropolis bar, with a friend of his, Adam David-Lawrence Arrambide, also being shot and killed in a double homicide.
Peters was senselessly murdered on his four-year old daughter’s birthday. He also leaves behind a fiancée. Reports sourced from purported friends of Peters indicate that the 503print owner was leaving the club uneventfully when a vehicle pulled up in front of the parking spot his truck was in. After an exchange of words, Peters, and Arrambide were shot.
Big League Politics has learned that Peters previously made himself a target of ANTIFA intimidation for printing pro-Donald Trump banners and imagery at his print shop. The father also personally supported Donald Trump, a bold move in the notoriously left-wing and bigoted Oregon city.
On a Portland Reddit page, left-wing haters celebrated the family man’s death, claiming the shooting was deserved because of Peters’ support for Trump. Other users on the forum confirmed that the small businessman was known as a Trump supporter, potentially making it onto the Stasi-style ‘lists’ that the extremist group has compiled of conservatives in Multnomah County.
Portland ANTIFA has proven more than willing to target businesses that stand in the way of their own political power, especially in the city’s downtown area. In the wake of Peters’ seemingly random homicide, it’s difficult to ignore the political implications of the targeted assassination. Anyone with information on the disturbing double homicide is being asked to step forward and contact Det. Scott Broughton at Scott.Broughton@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-3774 or Det. Eric McDaniel at Eric.McDaniel@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0833.
A GoFundMe raising money for Peters’ funeral expenses has already received more than $8,500 in contributions from mourners.
