St Cloud is a crap hole. The crap from N Mpls is moving north. No they are moving everywhere and there is no protection from them. They idiolize the thugs in videos and think everyone has a right to have nice things, but they dont want to work for it. I am tired of MN handing welfare checks out like a pezz machine.

The kids up there are bored and it's too cold out for spray-painting swastikas.

Itís not a sign of bad times itís a sign of bad people. Hard times test people. The good ones learn to live within their means. The bad ones canít get over their own self-absorbed sense of entitlement.

What you just said made positively no sense at all. North Minny moving to St Cloud? Are you kiddin me? All of us are now dumber after reading your post. And quit trying to be politically correct. Everybody reading your post knows you are referring 100% to Black people. You are an adult, so start acting like one. If you don't want to visually see Black people on an every day occurrence, move your white a s to Idaho.

It could be a sign of population shift. Obviously lots of people are leaving Mpls. due to all the foreclosures in certain areas of the city and I hardly doubt they can buy another home. So they end up in rentals in St.Cloud, the suburbs, and so forth.
Unfortunately the "bad economy" just means the local homeowners that are around affordable housing rentals have to experience crime they didn't have to deal with before.
