Authorities haven't identified the man. But a Somali community spokesman said the family identified the victim as Abdulahi H. Abdi, 18, a student.

If the Politicians would make murder illegal it would stop!!!

Oh wait....nothing....

10,000 years ago.....1.5% of people were bad.

In 10,000 years..... 1.5% of people will be bad.

Today..... 1.5% of people are bad.

So whats the answer?

Education, Wealth, Jobs, There is no answer, some things are just defective, including us humans.

More laws won't stop the 1.5%. More jails wont house all of the 1.5%. More Enforcers will not catch more of the 1.5%.

I know!!! How about if we change the 1.5% after we take away their rights.
Most people do not want to be in that 1.5% but do not know how to make better choices.

We can spend our wealth treating and changing people....or we can build more cages for them, pay more enforcers to come around after the crimes of the 1.5%, waste more wealth on the non- productive Lawyers for the 1.5% and continue to loose our rights out of fear of the 1.5%.

Radical eh?

Hey PP - WHY do you allow this to continue? These racist cowards hide behind a computer and type this hate, and you allow it to happen. Why? How do you think this young man's family and friends feel reading this garbage? It's truly disgusting and it makes MN look like Mississippi.

This is a really sad event. I biked by it last night- there were a lot of police tape and many officers milling about. I knew something horrible had gone down.

My heart goes out to his family.

So, knowing a first name or a race would somehow tell you whether or not it's a drug-related crime? And if it's a certain type of name, or a certain race, nobody should care? Nice.

First off all whenever anyone dies it's news worthy.....What if this was your little brother or sister who passed away....and someone said well should we even care!!!! Name and race doesn't matter......U r the type of person that is just ignorant and needs GOD!!! And by the way he was a wonderful person and no this wasn't a drug related crime....he was a loving, smart, and a kind person...very ambitious and had a bright future ahead of him...he was like a little brother to me!!

How do you know? Do you know who killed him and why? It seems that in situations like this the family of the victim comes out and says how great he was and how he was such a good boy, but they never seem to be able to answer the question of why was he killed in a gang related killing if he was so good. Not that i am saying that in this case that it is gang related. However odds are in favor of someone not being too happy with him and killing him for some reason. Most murders are not random. It is sad that he was killed, but lets not jump to conclusions of the circumstances of this murder with out knowing the evidence. Even the best of people can make the worst of mistakes, ir gangs, drugs and the family never knows until its too late.

Please accept my condolences at your loss. My thoughts are with his family at this most difficult time. Your words to describe your fallen friend are tender and kind, he was lucky to have such a friend as you.
