    I am SO GLAD we are a conceal and carry state! Why? SOME day….a C&C card holder will witness this and PREVENT this from happening OR make the guy think TWICE about doing it again….
    HEY PUNK! If your reading this…….I live in St Paul……I advise you get a REAL job and leave us hard wroking citizens alone…….

    Why is a 9 yr old child subjected to this at 10:40pm on a school night?

    • Noelle

      Oh Courtney you must be mom of the year.

    • Let's look on the bright side....

      Maybe the parent works two jobs? And went there to get milk? And since they didn’t have time to spend with their child they brought them with? Compared to the loser who stabbed the poor guy…..

    Or maybe the guy needed smokes, which is a likely and sad reason, hey stabbing in St Paul and Minneapolis both last night. Guess what i stopped for gas last night in suburbs, and guess what happened i got gas and drove home, and i didnt even have to prepay, its so scary at night out here, LOL

      I have been following some of your comments on the other posts Mr. Obvious. Again, you try to make yourself feel good by rationalizing your existence as worthy because you live in the suburbs. I am wondering why you wander the internet looking for places to make comments that make you feel better? Making comments on crime that happens in Minneapolis or Saint Paul has not matter with you. Therefore, you making comments about those crimes only serve some sort of psychological disorder. You must enjoy reading about crime in the city. I advise seeking professional help.

      • duh

        If a stabbing happens anywhere in MN it is of concern to anyone in the state, why do you think you can come on here and type out your opinions and not get backlashed like you did to him…
        Im just saying…think about it before you type it…you just made yourself look Hypocritical by saying you follow Obvious over the internet..hmmmm

  • captainstillobvious

    replier to mr capt.obvious why do you wander the boards looking for my comments, then saying almost the same thing over and over? I enjoy reading the news its unfortunate every 5th article relates to crime in this area, well ok brooklyn center and park also. So like your wife told you long ago “beat it” ok I told her that also

    • captain-not-so-obvious

      I recently started reading these comments under the headings and saw a lot of your comments. I was dismayed by the things you said and it enovked a response to write something to you. My comments are not made to change your opinion or to make you feel anything but it is my personal reaction to the things you say on here. If I didn’t say anything to counter act your comments I feel as though I would lack integrity in myself and thus I am forced to write back every time I see you write inexcusably morally wrong comments. So I cannot and will not ‘beat it’ so get used to see my comments too. And by the way…find some confidence elsewhere.

      • duh

        captian obvious- you have a stalker!! Good luck, this dude sounds like a crack pot- using those big words doesnt make you sound smart- it sounds like rambling

    Is this the gas station across from Aroma’s Coffee shop? My friend got held up at gun point outside the apt. building across the street from that gas station. I hope they catch this guy. I would have said no too, if my kid had been in the car. That dad is a hero. I hope he’s ok.

  • WiggerBoy

    The Dad was going out to buy a Blunt & took his son with while the Mom waited at the Bar. The Robber needed money for Crack. The son was just watching 2 Adults interact in the best way they knew how. He’ll be a well-adjusted adult himself in 10 years from now.
