Plot twist. The 911 caller said that he took down a board from when it was boarded earlier, and the unconscious person inside was the manager from a neighboring restaurant.πŸ€”

Rescue was cleared from the scene by EMS, but the status of the person who was inside is unclear.

We're sick of reposting these examples to the always available hypocrites in MN who bemoan "gun violence."

We hereby dismantle ANY argument from ANY Minnesota public official, representative or activist who calls for new gun laws and more gun control.

A parent sent us this copy of a newsletter received by her 6th & 7th graders at Justice Page Middle School @JPMSSTEAM in #Mpls at 50th and Nicollet Ave S.
She's concerned about the messaging to this grade level and the fact that it wasn't sent to parents.

At the bottom of the newsletter:

"The Rhino Report is a publication of @MPS_News, not Justice Page Middle School."

A follower pointed out to us that the use of the word "Toolkit" is used by higher level protest organizations and wonders who's really influencing this kind of messaging.

There was just a call for an EDP who thinks relatives are hiding in his floorboards. The responder asked, "is this a police call, is Car 74 available?" Ya know, the $6M mental health responders who were supposed to have started last month?

The officer said he heard they were starting at 7:30 a.m. today. Dispatcher said they're not starting until later because they have to hold a press conference.

So, screw people in need, we have to blow smoke and pat ourselves on the back first.

Check this out. After the carjackings started tonight, Hennepin County Commissioner Angela Conley commented on our FB post that the suspect vehicle was hers. She claims she made a police report, but the dispatcher clearly stated the vehicle was not listed as stolen.

Conley deleted the comments about her stolen vehicle in the thread before we saw them, but other followers re-pasted her comments. (pic 3).

What ever happened to...
Violent offender Tyree Antwon Walker who was charged with a violent assault of a 58 year-old-man on the Green Line LRT in 2019?

Incident location near Franklin Ave station in #Mpls.
.

2/
First of all, @KSTP lied to you by omission.

Walker pled guilty & was "sentenced" to 6 mos in the workhouse. However, he didn't spend one minute in the workhouse. He was granted "immediate furlough to the streets" on the promise he'd attend treatment, by Judge William Koch.
3/
Walker has had at least two warrants issued since conviction for alleged probation violations, & was charged with felony theft 8 months after conviction.

Yet, his probation wasn't revoked after being arrested on warrant and he was released on zero bail by Laura M. Thomas.
