I'd say stay out of Maple Grove in general, it's cesspool of suburban angst and crime.

I am sure it won't take long for someone to post here that this is exactly the reason we need to ban guns. Lets not go down that road. Our sympathies go out to the families!

No, not a gun ban. We need a ban on McDonald's. You see what eating that c r a p will make you do?

I also lost someone yesterday and all the cruel comments are unneccesary. I knew the guy and it's sad that his life ended this way. He was a very sweet, well loved person. It's unbelievable that this happen, but before you go passing judgements, please remember that TWO people died yesterday and even though one was to blame, please respect that he also had friends and family that are going to miss him dearly and are in shock of the events that happened.

Maple Grove is a dangerous suburb that just keeps getting worse. I am glad I moved to Hopkins last year.

Why is it always the psycho, murderer, wanna committ suicide by cop offender's families that come on here defending them? What about the kid who lost her mom because of this "sweet man" who obviously had control and abuse issues. He deserves all sorts of nasty comments, and because of what he did you should just deal with it. In this world the killer doesn't get sympathy, the victim does. He was a coward, and took the easy way out after killing someone else.

The north Mpls cancer has already spread through Brooklyn Park. Now it's eating its way into Maple Grove. They need a big fence around that north side ghetto. Maybe there's some stimulus money for that.
Did they identify these people as from Brooklyn Park or North Mpls?

My heart goes out to the friends and family!!!

if you are looking for any kind of symapthy or understanding, this isn't the place for that I will tell you.
My son was killed 2 years ago and the incident was reported in this paper/forum.I was absolultey horrified by what people wrote about it and my son in particular. My son was mentally challenged and was murdered and the awful hurtful things that folks wrote about him, about someone who had just died, about someone whom none of them had ever met, yet they were able to complelety judge him, his life, his parents and the color of his hair if they were given the information.It is remarkable the number of hurt and angry people these days and no telling what triggers such hatred within but it is rampant and it is also very very scarey. I still hurt when I think of some of what was writen about MY son and how folks who did not know him had NO right whatsoever to trash him, especailly seeing as how he was battling his mental illness on a daily basis, sometimes even hourly.
Peace to you and prayers for your loss, I am sorry.

I agree 100% with Used to be Really.

This guy was nuts and no one can seriously defend his actions. I will be at funeral as this happened to a relative of mine and I will griev for th efamily as well fo rthis senseless killing.

As least the guy died so thye is no trial for him. He can make his case and go straight to hell.
