Vancouver NAACP Condemns Destruction During Protests

(Vancouver, WA)  --  The Vancouver chapter of the NAACP is speaking out against destruction caused during recent protests following the police killing of a 21-year-old Black man near the city.  The organization released a statement over the weekend saying it condemns the actions that resulted in damage and destruction during Friday night's protest in Esther Short Park.  The group says non-peaceful behavior is antithetical to their values.  The statement also expressed appreciation for a peaceful vigil held earlier that night for 21-year-old Kevin Peterson Jr.  He was shot and killed by police Thursday near Vancouver after he allegedly ran from deputies conducting a narcotics investigation.
