      GFY already. I’m so sick of your broken-record comment every time there’s a murder. We get it, you hate Mpls. Find another track for your one-track-mind.

        Typical reply from a multi-cultural embracing,head-in-the-sand,reality avoiding Liberal that just hates having to face the facts of the never ending generational ghetto violence that destroys entire neighborhoods,communities,schools,lives & futures..People like you are repulsive in so many ways.

          @Kierom…typical response from a racist, head-up-his-butt, tea-bagger, conservative oinker! I’ve cleaned off goo from my shoe that was more intelligent than you. People like you are repulsive in so many ways.

          1. @Kierom says:

    Another one bites the dust!.. I say round them all up, and let them clear themselves out! it would save us all a ton of problems

  4. stay law abiding says:

    Mr. Forest has a criminal record dating back to 2000. Crimes committed in 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011. Theft, drugs, dui, loitering, fleeing a peace officer, driving w/o insurance, driving after revocation…. It just seems like these murder victims are always caught up in a life of crime for many years before it finally catches up with them for good.

    TIP – stay law abiding and don’t associate with criminals and your chances of dying a violent death go way down.

    Come on criminal justice system… please either rehab these people or lock them up for good. Don’t just slap their wrist and let ’em go free, which only results in this same old story. Now his friends will retaliate, cause more murders, and it goes on. The cycle of ghetto violence continues, forever. And the hard working tax paying citizens have to pick up the tab for this nonsense, sometimes paying with their own lives.

    1. keep the welfare train coming says:

      Well said. He was probably one of our hard working imports from Chicago, Detroit, Gary etc.

      1. NavyVet says:

        That is a very ignorant statement!

    2. So long Mijamin says:

      Mijamin was just starting to turn his life around. He was such a good kid, he never ment to hurt anyone. He always stayed to himself.

      Definatly one child that was left behind.
      One more social program could have made the difference.
      Did I read that correctly, 8pm? Very rare time.

    3. NavyVet says:

      And how did you come across this information? And it is pretty sad you took the time to even research this person! Get a life!

      She was just trying to spell it backwards.
