Reason 88,752 why we NEVER link to mainstream #MNmedia.

LIES.
OUTRIGHT LIES.
FALSE NARRATIVES.
AND COMPLETE BULLSH*T.

Once again, @StarTribune and @smontemayor are trying to manufacture consent and faux outrage to support their puppet masters' agendas.

.
2/
@StarTribune & @smontemayor want you to believe that stolen guns & straw purchased guns are "legally bought guns" being used in crimes.

These are outright lies and false narratives.

Straw purchasing, dealing arms without a license, and burglary/stealing ARE NOT LEGAL.
3/
Furthermore, @StarTribune and @smontemayor have MISERABLY FAILED in their duty to tell you the truth about the overwhelming failures in our @MNCourts systems that have led to most of the tragedies they listed in this piece of rotten tripe "reporting."

Last week, every #MNmedia outlet ran with a faux outrage story about the new Community Safety Commissioner Cedric Alexander @Calex_law basically telling a couple of loudmouth agitators to STFU over their complaints about some empty squad cars parked in #MplsDowntown.
2/
Every👏Single👏#MNmedia👏Outlet👏 that reported on this nothing-burger story failed to tell you that the main agitator Cedric Alexander was responding to is a whiney defund/abolish police proponent whom he shouldn't even have bothered to respond to in the first place.
3/
Last year, the above loudmouth agitator was one of several people who submitted a letter to the Star Tribune in support of every 'defund police' city council candidate.

Yet, the @StarTribune couldn't be bothered to include that not unimportant tidbit in last week's article.

State Fair - Fight at the Midway near the fry stand. A chemical irritant was sprayed.

Several people jumped a fence into the campground.

We're getting reports of shots fired, but cannot confirm that.

One male was seen with a possible broken leg. He was picked up by a vehicle and left the Fairgrounds.
.
There was reportedly a "stampede" at the Midway.

At least two people are in "custody."

Former Maplewood Public Safety Director Scott Nadeau.
His son was assaulted by the phone thieves Friday night in #MplsDowntown. (We posted about the thieves last night - it's a regular occurrence).
The son is hospitalized with a brain bleed, skull fractures.

In case all of this sounds familiar. These targeted attacks aren't new in #MplsDowntown.

ICYMI, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced this afternoon the nomination of the city's first Commissioner of Community Safety, Cedric Alexander @Calex_law.

Salary range: $295,000 to $350,000

Position oversees: Police, 911, Fire, Emergency Mgmt, Public Information ++.
2/

Recall, citizens voted against this move last fall. The council and mayor disregarded the people's voice and have now created another massive layer of bureaucracy in the city of Minneapolis.
3/
Of note in his comments at the press conference, Cedric Alexander not so subtly directed comments urging media to "help me."

Um, while you can count on mainstream #MNmedia to toe your line, media's job, theoretically, is to hold you accountable.

OMFG.
Remember Brandon David Miller who, while acting as a 'violence interrupter' for We Push for Peace, beat a shoeless homeless man outside a St. Paul grocery store last fall...
2/
He was sentenced on Tuesday.

In a downward departure from sentencing guidelines, Miller's 27-month prison sentence was stayed by Judge George T. Stephenson.

He was instead sentenced to probation... DESPITE...
...
3/
... DESPITE the fact that Miller was charged in another felony assault case in December (occurred Oct. 31) that left the victim with serious injuries.

That case is still open/pending and would have/should have been known to the judge at the time of sentencing.

He's. Back. In. Custody.
Child rapist Tyler Michael Ferguson.
Also just received the sweet plea deal on the Stella's arson case where he walked away with a stayed sentence and $1,000 restitution on $80,000 in damages.
In custody on damage to property case from March 2021.🙄
2/
The damage to property case related to his new arrest has been pending this entire time since before his conviction on raping a child and prior to being charged with Stella's arson.
3/
Here's your reminder that not one worthless fake mainstream #MNmedia outlet reported on Tyler Ferguson's plea deal and being spun out the door on Stella's arson in our joke of a system, including @StarTribune @KSTP @WCCO @FOX9 @kare11 @MPRnews @wccoradio @PioneerPress.

As you may know, @CrimeWatchMpls is a volunteer effort. All of the research and reporting we've provided for over 11 years has been done for free as a public service -- because we believe people deserve information that's sorely lacking from authorities & mainstream #MNmedia.
2/
No entity or agency pays us to do this. And while it's our passion to provide all of this information for free, it's not free to produce. There are real costs involved and absorbed by us (equipment, scanners, software, electronic storage and costs for obtaining public data).
3/
In the past we've been able to obtain occasional criminal complaints from various counties or agencies for our reporting (when often a courthouse visit would be required).

As volunteers, we don't have "staff" or resources to be running to the courthouse for documents.

Oh, another workgroup has been launched. This time by @HennepinAtty Mike Freeman as he attempts to deflect blame and pretend he's not significantly responsible for the #TwinCities being overrun by violence and repeat offenders.

Of course he's got the always-available grifters Harding Smith and Jerry McAfee 🙄🤡

Also, Mike, do your job on ALL crime, not just your new pet project of carjackings. Other non-violent and property crimes significantly impact victims' lives and inflict significant costs to society, including auto thefts, burglaries, catalytic converter thefts. @HennepinAtty

Because #MN isn't soft enough on criminals, the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission is moving to further weaken criminal accountability in a vote to eliminate the addition of "custody points" to sentencing calculations.

Any mainstream #MNmedia report on the fact that a person entered a secure, private apartment building last night and went up to the 12th floor and stood outside the door of the female judge presiding over the Kim Potter/Daunte Wright case in an attempt to intimidate her?

Oh, and here's fake journalist Andrew Mercado egging him on and telling him to post the address.

If you think Mercado Media or Unicorn Riot are "journalists" or legit media and you share their links, get off our page.

Yesterday, someone tried to berate us for writing up on our Patreon page a summary of the Wednesday night gun battle and resulting homicide of an innocent bystander. They tried to accuse us of "monetizing" crime.

First of all, ALL OF OUR CONTENT ON PATREON IS ALWAYS FREE TO ACCESS. We never put it behind their paywalls because we believe people have the right to access critical public safety information. It's merely a platform where we can post and people can support us if the CHOOSE.

The victim was apparently decapitated in the Shakopee homicide. We were sent video and pictures which appear to confirm this. The suspect is in custody. We'll update when the booking is completed.

If our info about the suspect is correct, he was scheduled to appear in court today on another felony charge from last fall. He had been out on bail despite the fact that he was ordered to have a mental illness evaluation.

The @StarTribune and "reporter" @StribJany won't tell you about this perpetrator's prior stayed sentences for convictions on violent crimes and the fact that our FAILED system left him free to commit murder.

Why?

.
"Beckman has a recent history of convictions for violent crimes for which he received reduced or stayed sentences."
