Put the magic markers away, kids.

Ridge Austin James Kinney, 11/15/2001, in custody on 2nd and 4th degree assault, fleeing x2 and 1st degree damage to property.
Charges say Kinney rammed a Brainerd squad during a suspicious vehicle stop, then fled, crashed and fled on foot.
Two prior felony convictions on 1st degree burglary of an occupied dwelling in two separate cases, which is a violent crime. Also, has another felony conviction on receiving stolen property.
In a 2019 conviction on 1st degree burglary, a plea deal dismissed 3 counts of felon in possession/firearm & another ct of 1st degree burglary & spun him out on a stayed sentence for the violent crime of 1st degree burglary.

MN is totally serious about gun and violent crimes.
Not even 5 months later, he was charged in a new 1st degree burglary case x2 felony counts plus 5 other charges.

He was tossed another plea deal dismissing 6 charges and was allowed to serve the sentence concurrently with his prior conviction.

Again, @MNCourts totes serious.
Ridge Austin James Kinney was just released from prison in August and he's already back at it.

Time for #3StrikesMN



Minnesota has a $9.25 BILLION surplus of your money that they over-taxed you. In addition to their over-taxing problem, our "leaders" have a spending priority problem.

Government's one and only job is protecting the public. They are failing.

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.
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.
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.

This "civil" lawsuit by @AGEllison against @fleet_farm is absurd.

Ellison alleges FF "aided and abetted straw purchasers."

That would be a CRIME. He knows this assertion is absurd and that's why he's filing a weak civil suit, not a criminal case.
This is another attempt by @AGEllison to attack Minnesota businesses as a deflection away from Minnesota's weak, criminal-sympathizing "justice" system; a weak system based on feelgoodery for criminals which Ellison has openly supported, empowered and contributed to.
The Truck Park mass shooting, on which this lawsuit is based, was perpetrated by Terry Brown WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN PRISON but wasn't because @MNCourts ARE WEAK and filled with criminal sympathizing judges and prosecutors.

That's who should be sued.
