Seems he has open warrants which why he probably ran.
Given his criminal history, I'm sure the police has his phone number on speed dial.

Doesn't the last line of the next to last paragraph say that they "called off the chase..." ????

Send him back to wherever in Europe he came from. Same to all other people who can't abide by the laws in this country. Maybe the Native Americans will take over what was theirs first.

Yay! another irrelevant anti-DFL rant! How refreshing. While your GOP legislators continue to cut funding and staff at prisons across the state, you complain that the DFL is letting criminals out of the now understaffed and overcrowded facilities. And, your rant should be against the justice system with its catch-and-release policies, not some pointless jab at the DFL.

Yes, it says that the chase was called off by state hwy 110. No where even close to the U. Fact Checker is full of it.

A few years ago I checked the annual stats for U.S. crime and MN was in the top tweny states for most burglaries and property thefts so you are right. The court system is antiquated in that it worked o.k. when MN was a low crime state but in today's MN with all the criminals from other states coming here for welfare and the system it needs major reform and stiffer sentencing.
2nd to last in incarceration and near the top of the nation in granting probation...go figure.

Burnsville police called off their chase at Hwy. 110 as Clevenger was weaving in and out of traffic at speeds around 95 miles per hour, Carlson said.
"We didn't want a tragedy, for anybody or the suspect," Carlson said today. "It just wasn't worth the risk."
The State Patrol and other agencies spotted Clevenger later and followed him 2 to 3 miles into Wisconsin where Clevenger turned around and came back into Minnesota. He crashed near the University of Minnesota and took off on foot.
Clevenger decided to hit the dope houses around the U of M Campus, he needed something after his day of excitement.
Meanwhile numerous U of M students were captured during the house to house searches.
Sure funny how none of the DOPE Houses in Dinkytown were searched. However other apartment buildings, and houses were searched, while the DOPE HOUSES were all left alone. What a Miricle for the Drug Dealers. Having a fugitive run to the stash house, I mean the CASH COW House, can't have the police going in there.
Thankfully there were 2 helicopters to direct the Search away from the Protected Dope House Operations.
It's all party of getting an education for the students that were captured during the search.
Police have yet to find a man who led them on a chase from Burnsville to Wisconsin and back to near the University of Minnesota Tuesday afternoon, but they say it's only a matter of time til they catch up with Grayson Lee Clevenger.
Really, why catch up to him. He will be let ago once again.
The DFL was in power for over 35 years. The Judicial system, the sentencing guidelines, the prison system, the probation system, are all products of DFL Liberal Space Alien thinking. Most of the people that came up with this system were either drunk at the legislature, or high on drugs, or some kind of sex offender.
Ever wonder why in the world Minnesota State Laws are so easy on Sex Offenders? Well the Legislature was full of them, and they wrote the laws. Most of the statues were written on trips to Thailand, on sex tours, then brought back and introduced in session.
Clenvenger is one of tens of thousands running around doing this everyday. The Police decided to risk arresting him again, so he can have another warrant out for his arrest while he committs more crimes. Why fill the system up with warrants that won't get served anyways? 2000 check, 10-89 Ramsey county, who cares, toss him back out.
We all know he is going to get let go again, and if a Judge is foolish enough to try to throw the book at him. It will all get appealed to the DFL controlled state appeals court, where DFL appointed Judges will smoke something, and determine the sentence is too long according to the DFL sentencing guidelines, and let him out, or reduce his sentence signifigantly.

The DFL laughed at Rich Stanek when he tried to introduce a bill banning bongs, and pipes, they all ganged up on Rich Stanek, and declared it would not be constitutional or Minnesota Nice to take away bongs, pipes, and drug
paraphinillia, especially from card carrying DFL members.
This is not an Anti-DFL rant, it's reality, pointing the blame for the failed system and policies that were created over a period of 35 years, and now are in place. Property Criminals, to Sex Offenders, to Violent Offenders.
The DFL once bragged there were less then 2000 felons in the state prison system.
It's not a matter of Cost, it's a matter of getting the DFL created Corrections system in line fiscally. That means, not spending $45,000 per year to contain dangerous criminals, but a corrections system that holds them for $5000 to $7000 a year.
Divide 5 into 45. Basic math. Locking up 8 dangerous criminals for $45,000 a year is more in line with many southern states. Instead of one for $45,000. The DFL created this Dope inspired vision of Minnesota. The DFL Dope inspired vision, is now nightmare reality for everyone in the state.
Lets just put blame, where blame is due.
The usually DFL rant is to complain that the GOP, or others won't spend the money to build more prisons. Honestly, when you spend $45,000 plus a year to contain one criminal, nobody is going to authorize the funding and resources to build more Minnesota Nice Luxury Correctional Facilities. Not at that price.
The Department of Corrections needs to be audited. It's being run like MNDOT, or worse. It's time to use legislative action to force the costs down to reality. Cancel sex offender treatment programs that cost 100's of millions of dollars, and don't cure any of them, and revise the states entire criminal code, so dangerous criminals are locked up, and contained, and the public is protected.
Everyday these people run around the Twin Cities, like an Army going insane, and getting worse everyday, Law Enforcement officers are being shot at, shot in the foot, run over and killed in high speed chases, and innocent citizens are being robbed, raped, murdered, injured, and every other crime under the sun.
All by criminals that should have been locked up and kept in jail, instead of being let out over and over again to victimize anyone they encounter.
This DFL dope inspired Vision of Reality in Minnesota is something to really marvel at.

The video is now publically available.

Just watch this, 100 miles an hour, driving down the middle of the median bewteen the traffic in the highway, endangering countless peoples lives. One mistake from killing innocent people, or killing a law enforcement officers. Right in the middle of the day, just another day at work for a released Minnesota Nice criminal.

Can anyone not be upset? Upset at a system that puts these people back on the street constantly to do this crap?

Thankfully the DFL approved the funding for the Surveillance system we have on the highways, approved with the promise it would not be used for things like this, but it's there, lets make use of it.

It makes you even more upset, when you watch the family of a Lino Lakes officer eating without their father at a restaurant, killed by a very similar maniac running loose on the highway system.

When are these people going to be locked up the FIRST TIME? Not the 12th, or 15th, or 30th time?

Why not lock them up the first time you say? Why when they can guarantee job security for the justice system with a history like this. No matter that three more innocent lives were forever scarred by this idiot. They know they will eventually get him convicted and put away, so what's the hurry. Contact with this kid 40 times since he was 12. And what about carjacking with a gun? I thought that would automatically put him away for 3-4 years with a felony record?
Justice in MN. What a joke.

Rapist gets 25 years-By ROCHELLE OLSON, Star Tribune
Last update: July 11, 2008 - 9:32 PM

"That was not the case at Miles' sentencing, despite his guilty plea to three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct -- rape with force.

Miles, who is from Columbia Heights, raped three women in September and October last year in north and northeast Minneapolis.

Miles grabbed the women, who were strangers to him, off the street and raped them, telling them he had a gun and threatening to shoot them. He was a suspect in five rapes last fall.

Miles has been a troubled young man. He has had contact with the Minneapolis police at least 40 times since he was 12. He spent time at the county's home school, where troubled young people receive treatment and help to re-enter the community.

His juvenile record is sealed, but his criminal history ranged from drug activity to carjacking with a gun, sources have said."
