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.
Let's pull out some specifics from the newsletter. These messages are being directed at ages 12-13:

"Wear nondescript clothing. Even if you aren’t breaking the law, law enforcement may still try to come after you, in these situations it’s better to be paranoid than careless"
Don't post people causing property damage 🙄

"You’re free to document things with your phone, but please don’t post anything with people’s faces/identifying information in them, especially if it’s someone doing art/graffiti."
This, plain and simple, is fearmongering. In what case would a 12-13 year old student at a protest in #MPLS ever be held for 48 hours??? Never.
The first sentence is false information. No charges have been filed. This has not been determined to be a "murder." This is narrative indoctrination by @MPS_News and @JPMSSTEAM.
Wear protective clothing.... not 'get out of the area if danger erupts.' 🙄

Here's a link to share this thread outside of Twitter.

The MPS social media manager messaged to clarify that this newsletter was produced by students during an afterschool Community Ed program, not by MPS as the newsletter indicates.

Don'Quarius Malik Woods, 01/30/1995
An offender we've posted several times.

Previously charged with felon in possession of a firearm.

IN CUSTODY on a felony warrant for conditional release violation after @MNFreedomFund bailed him out.
Woods was originally charged in the case in June 2019. He was released later that month on zero bail required by Judge Jay Quam 🙄
Woods' conditional release was revoked on a violation report two weeks later and a warrant was issued for his arrest in July 2019.

However, he remained on the run for 2 years before being arrested in July 2021.

This time bail was set at $100,000.

Miguel Huerta, 08/02/1974
Another dangerous offender deemed "incompetent" was released on $500 bail by Judge Richard H. Kyle, Jr., and is now charged with raping a 14-year-old in St. Paul on Feb. 14 after breaking into the home.
Huerta had been charged in another case stemming from 2019 on 1st degree burglary (occupied dwelling). He was found incompetent to stand trial in the case. He also recently twice failed to appear at hearings in that case (Nov and Dec 2021).
Yet, Huerta was ordered released into society on low bail pending yet another order for a competency evaluation signed on Jan. 6, 2022 by Judge Richard Kyle.

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...
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...
... 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.
