Young people? That's what you call them? No wonder you pinheads have a crime problem.

"Eight days before a man was knocked to the ground and killed in Minneapolis, police warned of similar attacks by young robbers in the area, distributing an alert to downtown businesses.

“Warn patrons … have your door monitors be aware …” the alert read, but it never went to the larger public via the Police Department’s crime alert e-mail system.

A more public alarm may not have made a difference for Adrian Hernandez, 44, a salon worker who was trailed by three young men down Hennepin Avenue early on the morning of Aug. 22. They followed him for five blocks. He died Sunday of his injuries suffered in the attack.

With robberies up dramatically over two years in Minneapolis, the crime fit a disturbing pattern that police had seen four times in August: a lone individual, often intoxicated, gets surrounded by three to five young men who then rob and sometimes assault their victims. Wallets and iPhones, which can fetch $200 on the streets, were typically taken. The attacks took place in a strip of downtown bounded by Marquette and 1st Avenues N. Men and women were targeted."

Now Now, Obama would say they could be his son(s). Obama also says whites fear blacks and avoid walking near them, hold their valuables tightly when blacks are near, lock their car doors when blacks walk by. Well if ya don't do that the black might KILL ya..

Muderaplis officials don't broadcast a warning to the public unless they are in danger.
