Indian gangs are probably to blame. What is it about minority kids and gangs?

"Cobenais believes the shooting was gang-related"
It probably was, I would start by asking the 15 year old son a question or two.

My brother is a police officer in a neighoring city. The crime rate is very high and there is lots of gang-related activity. Funny to think of gangs up in the sticks, but there is!

Welcome to my world. I go to Bemidji to get away from the violence here in Minneapolis and to visit my family.

I have noticed that Bemidji and Cass Lake have been melting more into each other. The only known gang, I have known was the Native Mob in Cass Lake. However, I am sure that Bemidji wants to be like the big city and make gangs so they can be "tough".

IMO, Bemidji is just full of wangstas that got a hold of their daddies guns and know they can get away with it.

Too early to speculate, true their might be some cliques in Bji... To call it gang related is too quick of an assumption. Yes your city has crime...

Why was the ex husband picking up evidence? Police didn't rope off the home(s) and investigate? And why weren't the Police not taking the situation serious? From what I gather Miss Cobenais' is saying.

Gangs around here are a bunch of misfits trying to pretend they're actual gangs dealing drugs out of their trailer homes causing problems and violence in the community. In my opinion gangs are gangs around here are just unintelligent group of people trying to make some noise so people will notice them. They have no economic sense, respect, or loyalty. The real "gang" (families) all have codes in which they follow; silence and anonymity is one of them. The command respect without having to flash gang signs, grafitti on walls, and most of all violence. It s the intimidation factor that has the biggest impact. So, saying all that, if i was to come down with an terminal illness. I'll gladly do everyone a favor and start eliminating some of the problems around here.

Wow ~ reading all the comments I feel a lot of hate. This article became a race issue? And all about gangs? One, it wasn't published yet what race the victims were, or the offender(s) or their status in society. Why are people so quick to do assume that? Its obvious Northern Minnesota is divided on race. Its 2010 now, let go of the old thoughts. Hate doesn't solve hate or get us anywhere.
