    Was Masha Mayes notified and was she sickened by these events? Being it happened in the Mids, it might be out of her area since she occupies the lows.

    Another great day in the city of Minneapolis. A couple of days ago, my brother told me the story of a friend of his who attended a stag party in downtown Mpls. He was from rural MN, and was unfamiliar with all of the NONSENSE that occurs down there on a daily basis. He got a little too drunk, and wandered off of the well policed streets. It cost him, big time. He got jumped by at least 3, his wallet and cellphone were stolen, his ankle was broken, he had multiple head injuries, but GET THIS…… it never even made the 6:00 news.

    I don’t doubt this story for a second, because that same brother showed up at my home just after a night in DOWNTOWN Mpls, with a black eye and cuts/bruses. I know that my brother doesn’t go out looking for a fight when he goes out on the town, he is more likely to back away from a confrontation then add fuel to a fire. If he got beat up, it’s because a bunch of thugs thought that they had him OUTNUMBERED and knew that they could get away with it.

    That’s why I avoid Minneapolis (especially downtown) like the PLAGUE. It’s a jungle down there, and the police need TWICE the cops that they currently have down there now to give decent people the feeling that things are safe.

      I would probably tend to walk the other way from a group of thugs anywhere I was at, but if they start putting the hurt on then they’re getting shot.

    Maybe if the cops wait long enough the Perp will turn himself in.
    Then they can say they made an arrest.
