One of my friends was robbed at Nicollet and 7th. They harrassed her, then one mutt knocked her down, pounded her head against the sidewalk, then took off with her cell phone. The perps are – yes, you and I guessed correctly – Male/Black/18-35. She’s the 5th person in her circle of friends to be attacked.
While taxpayers are being assaulted and robbed, Raymond Rybak, the alleged Mayor of Minneapolis, is trying to forcibly compel us to transfer our paychecks over to a billionaire so that he can build another stadium.
I’d like to know what the Police Chief and the First Precinct Captain is doing about it. A suggestion from an former Transit cop (me): one footman every half block up and down Nicollet with anti-crime squads. RMPs (radio motor patrols) up and down the cross streets. Use Sheriff’s Deputies and the State Patrol if needed.
Aggressively stop and frisk. Just say you want to clear the outstanding warrants. Dare the mutts to complain. Go right ahead, file a f****** complaint, asshole. If the MCLU, CUAPB, or the NAACP starts whining, tell them to go f*** themselves.
I’m calling Councilwoman Goodman’s Office.
I’m f****** pissed.
BDS fail. Adding injury to insult, they’re also out $520.

“…the authority to make social, political and economic policy decisions of the kind Plaintiffs complain about in this case resides with the Legislature and the SBI [State Board of Investment], not this Court.”

Matt McKinney at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
A sudden, random attack on three bicyclists last Friday on Nicollet Mall kicked off a melee that had Minneapolis police pursuing 15 to 20 youths who assaulted the bikers and ran through an outdoor restaurant patio as they fled, according to court documents.
The event unfolded in front of police officers patrolling the pedestrian and transit thoroughfare after “numerous, recent ‘flash mobs’ of individuals engaging in criminal conduct,” according to a criminal complaint.
Since there is no possible way the Star Tribune will allow me or the public to positively identify the actors in these attacks, so that we, as the public, can take action to stop these attacks or to insure our safety, we must make some assumptions.
A sudden, random attack on three Uighur bicyclists last Friday on Nicollet Mall kicked off a riot that had Minneapolis police pursuing 15 to 20 teenage Khazakh herdsmen who assaulted the Uighurs and ran through a Comanche outdoor restaurant patio as they fled, according to court documents.
The event unfolded in front of police officers patrolling the pedestrian and transit thoroughfare after “numerous, recent ‘flash mobs’ of Khazakh herdsmen herding their livestock down Nicollet Mall,” according to a criminal complaint.
We have identified the culprits. Downtown Minneapolis is now safe.
Matt can now go back to sleep at his warm and fuzzy desk.
