Instead of buying beer... why don't you save it and then maybe you can buy a shop in the future, then instead of buying a case of beer, you can buy a keg.

And its about time!! this is the quote from wcco.com from Omar Jamal, the television activist, blaming Minneapolis for the violence his community commits.

"Omar Jamal, an advocate for the Somali community in Minnesota, said this level of violence is the result of Mayor Rybak's failure of policy to engage the community."

Always pointing a finger but never extending a hand to help, typical showboating blame spreading jerk that will not look in the mirror for the source of the problem.

Once again, secrecy concerning the identities and motive? Why are they protecting the "somali community"? What is going on? And Cam Gordon is one of the biggest fools on the city council.

So, "Omar Jamal, an advocate for the Somali community in Minnesota" wants to preserve the cultural identity of the closed Somali society. The society that spawned 20 terrorists for the cause. Oh, by the way Minneapolis isn't doing enough to help them..... And our police chiefs want to inform us about an increasing heroine problem. It must be all those Swedes and Norwegians

Because they know arithmetic. Have you and your little buddies considered remedial math classes? They're free and open to the public. Now I've given you a head start, so get running.

Shut up "Rev Al Sharpton" Jamal and start helping with who in your wonderful "somali community" is a terrorist. Start coaching your people to start from a premise of gratitude that they were allowed to escape that crap hole homeland of yours. They would do well to move away from much of their "cultural identity" that spawns misogynism, terrorism, religious superiority and finally piracy. What a cultural identity, I would laugh if it were not so seriously deadly.

Such an unnecessary tragedy for folks trying to live the American dream as folks always say. Glad to hear that the affected community apparently came forward to help with the investigation. It will certainly be interesting to hear the rationale for their act if the two suspects are tried as adults and convicted.

First off, you may need to take the 'beer' out of the equation.
Sober up, dry out your brains and get some education.

Because they receive 0ne thousand tax dollars a month for being in a "refugee" status. This is apparently not enough help for them. Sad that we pay these people

Look at that picture of Rybak falling over himself, pandering.. As if he shot those African refugees. Rybak is exactly the type of reason these people come here. Someone to dance and juke for them as they giggle and shoot bullets at his feet.

Sad, mayor..

This Jamal guy doesn't represent the Somali community, he has his own agenda, The mayor Rybak did lot for our community and we can't thank him enough. We alos like to the thank the M.P.D for their hard work and especailly the chief of M.P.D.

Why is the taxpayers problem to create programs for these people. They need to fix the problem themselves. The only thing they know is violence. And why is it that the largest population of Somali people is here in Minnesota. What should happen is that when this kind of thing happens, they should pack up those that commit the crime and send them back to Somalia immediately and tell them to fix their problem back in Somalia. I thought that was the way it used to be when immigrants came here and committed crimes. They are always looking for fighters. The people come here and they don't want to accept our ways of doing things. They want us to accept their way of thinking. It is time it changes.

The time has come for true Americans to embrace other cultures no matter how mentally unbalanced they seem to be, we have to understand when we see them kneeling and kissing the floor 5 times a day while facing east is an absolutely normal daily routine for some cultures, now there may be a logical reason for them to do that, I do not know what in the world the reason could possibly be. America can not deport all of them, so best is embrace now and fire any legislators and all other politicians that have the deteriorating brain condition known as lets let people flock to this country no questions asked, the American tax payer will support them.

Oh really, a dumb naive liberal white female from Mpls, how surprising and unique. We aren't buying that racist BS anymore that you liberals throw on anybody who doesn't agree with you. Pull you head out and face reality, the hardest thing of all for a liberal. Either that or shut up and get out of the way. There are HUGE issues with the somalis not the least of which if you stayed up on current events is a significant connection with terrorist activities in their homeland. So yes, they WILL continue to be scrutinized and you my dumb dear can thank God for that.
