Mpls. Police Ponder 8 P.M. Curfew After Youth Mob Attacks

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There have been six mob attacks, in all, since February. Now, police are now wondering if an 8 o’clock curfew keeping anyone 17 and under from two downtown streets will stop the violence.

Nicollet Mall is a destination for many. Outdoor patios where drinks and food are served are a draw not only to people who live here, but also tourist.

Since February, when the sun goes down, later in the evening, mobs of teens take advantage of the darkness and attack.

A video captured on 6th Street and Nicollet shows how the mob of teens viciously attacks innocent people.

Police have made four arrests, but continue to search for others. They’ve beefed up patrols and monitor video from cameras that cover the entire downtown area.

Minneapolis Police have asked the city attorney if it can impose a curfew of 8 p.m. along the mall and Hennepin Avenue.

For some, talk of an earlier curfew for 17 year olds and under won’t stop the violence.

“Curfews are just going to make them want to act out even more,” said Mary Carter. “I don’t feel like that would solve the problem because I feel that kids that would adhere to the curfew aren’t the ones causing the problems to begin with.”

Kids we spoke with say they feel as if they’re being punished for something they had nothing to do with.

“They’re stopping me from going to where I need to go,” said 15-year-old Marlon Beard.

The curfew would allow those 17 and under to come and go from Timberwolves and Twins games and other activities.

Some think the idea would keep mobs of kids like this out of downtown.

There is a curfew in Hennepin County. Sunday through Thursday, kids under 12 need to be home by 9 p.m., 12- to 14-year-olds by 10 p.m. and 15 to 17-year-old’s by 11 p.m.

On Friday and Saturday nights, the curfew is an hour later for all ages.

Meanwhile, Downtown Improvement District Workers and their radios also help in alerting police and several hundred securities guards who work in offices downtown to potential problems.

    I’m glad to hear they’re also talking about moving the buses. They should talk about shutting down bus service altogether during non-business peak hours. Sorry folks, some people will have to pay for their own transportation after all…

    • Susan

      Ummm, I’m new to Mpls.but don’t you have to pay to ride the bus??????

    • John O

      The fare is $1.75 off-peak. Google Metro Transit Minneapolis.

      • Amilia S.

        With no tax payer subsidies a bus ride would be over $6.00 each way. So this is just another hand-out for the thugs.

          Parenting starts at the home, most of theses young kids shouldn’t even be out and about if parents kept an eye on their kids.
          Yeah the economy is not great –
          but that doesn’t mean you don’t have family values, and can’t raise your kids to be good people.

          • Islnder

            If only all kids had loving parents, but many don’t have anyone to care about them or to give them any love at all. A child who is loved and nurtured at home most likely will not join up with a criminal gang.

            • SirGareth

              The great society of the leftists has made Uncle Sam the fathers of these kids; He’s done a rotten job despite the lavish cash we taxpayers gave him to father these kids; so let’s fire Uncle Sam and find some capable fathers with our cash.

              Of course there is a more ready solution to this problem; carry a 9mm Glock (with a high capacity magazine) in your fanny pack holster. When a mob of “disadvantaged youth” approaches, cross the street and get out of their way. If they follow you draw your gun before they get within 25 feet of you. If they keep coming – well that’s when your high capacity magazine comes in handy.

                And after that, if you are really lucky, you too can become a special project of Jessie Jackson and Al [not-so] Sharpton when they get done in Florida. We just cannot have people defending thsmselves. Sets a bad tone, don’t you know.

                • Bootneck

                  Sid Gareth was absolutely right, in that each of us has a right to defend himself whenever our lives are threatened, and “defense” includes deadly force.

                  Unfortunately, you too are correct i in that the likes of racists Sharpton and J. Jackson will do their best to defend the thugs and shift the blame from their “brothers” to the victims.

                  Nevertheless, I will continue to rely on my two friends, Smith and Wesson, to “reason” with roving bands of punks.

                • CallousD

                  Well as long as the thugs are white then you can shoot them.

                • Orwell was right

                  Children scream loudest before they give up. The evidence so far.looks bad for the race-baiters. If Trayvon attacked Zimmerman and was beating his head, he can and should be shot in self defense. Nobody has to take an unprovoked beating. Like it or not, we are a nation of laws and the court of public opinion only matters to morons.

                  Right. We need a lot more guns out there for the honest, hard-working, patriotic, God-fearing Americans, along with plenty of ammunition. Those punks out there would think twice before approaching one of us if they knew we were all carrying weapons and were ready to use them at any tine and any place. And yes, even in a church or school. Those punks down’t care where they start trouble.

              • Reasonable

                Or it’s entirely possible that, given how jobs are scarce, these non-loving parents that you’re worried about are taking on a 2nd nighttime job so that they can provide something for their family.

                It’s not an issue of a few bad parents, it’s a systemic problem that goes back to squeezing every possible dime out of labor. “sorry folks, but profits are down so instead of refining our business model and creating a better product/service, we’re just going to cut 25% of you and ask the rest to pick up the slack with no raise.”

              Which begs the question, is this not a symptom of a broken, dysfunctional culture? How did it get this way? Have Liberal Social Policies really helped anything? I submit that we are seeing the result of two generations of indoctrination of perpetual victim-hood and government dependency. Americans need to step back and take a serious look at where we have been, where we are and where we are going if we remain on the same course we have been on, particularly over the last three years. Something has to change. Think!

              • jackactionhero

                Meaning what? Republican social engineering is a better answer? You really think Rick Santorum offers solutions to America’s problems?

                  “Republican social engineering”???? You really are a shill for the dhimmicrats aren’t you. Or do you mean respect for human life is social engineering? Or expecting people to be responsible for themselves is social engineering? Or expecting people to show respect for the law is social engineering? No wonder the USA is messed up with you dhimmicrats in power. But we will get rid of you in November!

                • mirted

                  I’m old enough to clearly recall the feminists of the late 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s
                  vehemntly stressing that men weren’t necessary to raise a child, that women raising children alone had no flaws. This is what the media , Hollywood darlings, and university “professors” spread. These folks have never had a conservative mindset, and would be allowed to keep their jobs if they did, let alone express an opposing viewpoint on TV.

                  So, while you may not like Republicans or their views, it is clearly the Left that has led the charge on the ideas that find us where we are today culturally and economically. You can either keep doing the same things that haven’t worked, or try something else. If Democrats want to lead on that, fine with me. But, to continue the Great Society and “If it feels good, do it” path, fits the definition of insanity. No action will be painless.

                • isnrblog

                  I’m a Republican and Santorum should shut his pie hole.

                  However, if he is the Republican nominee, I’ll vote for him. He’s way better than Obama. If Obama wins, our Republic is lost.

                  With Obama, this will get far worse and a lot more will suffer from various things before it gets better.

                  At least he offers solution #1 and that’s get the government out of the business of raising kids and creating lifelong dependencies.

                • mahone dunbar

                  Rick Santorum . . . personally can’t stand him. But would he, or anyone of a dozen or so so other republicans, would be better than the last forty or so years of liberal social engineering. Anything the republicans could offer would be better. In a perfect world, you and your fellow-traveling leftists could have the ghetto to continue practicing your egalatarian social experiments on, and the rest of us could form a reasonable, workable constitutional republic and have a life.

                Two generations? I think you better check your math. In the land of gov. housing, welfare, foodstamps, free clinics, rampant drugs and violence there is a new generation about every 14 years. There are little heathens running around with great-grandparents who have never had an alarm clock. Didn’t go to school and never had a job. You can try to blame it on the last 3 years but it has been downhill since the first dirtbag politician took money from an American and gave it to someone else to buy their vote. Well over a hundred years of vote buying and it is not going to change until after the total collapse. It will be ugly and no politician capable of getting elected can stop it.

                • thesuperman

            If someone could hire these kids to work at a car wash for a buck an hour and teach them the protocols of work it would go a long way. Of course they are not worth a buck an hour so someone will have to stick their neck out and violate state and federal “wage laws” to boot.

      $hit for brains if us drunken suburbanites wern’t there spending money for ballgames or after ballgames, then many more businesses would be closing their doors downtown, and other than to watch a pro team play I havn’t been downtown for years, my job often takes me there and daily I ask why would anyone want to live here.

      • pumphandle

        What is it like to wake up every morning and just hate where you live and the people around you, I bet you made a couple bad decisions in life but the worst had to be living downtown, I tell you what i’l let you mow my lawn today so you can feel what it’s like to own a home, then you can sit on the patio and grill and watch a game, you even get to park for free.

            I think that’s the definition of bourgeois there Corey, but to each their own I guess. I was wondering if you have asked or reseached how many Minneapolis or Hennepin Co. residents actually wanted or want new stadiums. It seems to me that the only people who really want them are those who think they’re somehow entitled to them but don’t want to pay a dime for them (a ‘hem, outstaters). I think the beers should be $20 at the stadiums to cover their costs.

          • pumphandle

            You gotta love it when Dave doesn’t allow replies to his comments, I live in the burbs, my point is you can by a home for 30k in North sounds like great property values, also I was for the stadium in Blaine years ago, which I would have helped pay for by an extra sales tax, I can afford 10cents more for every $20 i spend I’m not a total failure like you Dave.

      The future does not belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the BRAVE RWR 40.

      The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

      The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

      The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

      we are living in the time of the kinder, gentler, parenting model. No more spanking, (it causes trauma and leads to social problems, can’t lock them in their rooms, which already has the benefits of a game room anyway in some cases, can’t speak harshly to them, cause it bruises the ego’s…)
      yes, we are reaping the benefits of a “stop or i am going to yell stop again” mode of parenting.
      Start to hold the parents accountable for the minors offenses, and see how fast it changes.

      • jackactionhero

        There is no law against locking them in their room or speaking harshly to them either.

        There is NO NEED to beat your kids to get them to listen. By the time you’re considering it, you’re too late to do any good anyway.

      • John

        Good post. My daughter, who works in Atlanta with several relocated liberals, has been brainwashed that “getting in his face” will be discipline enough for my grandson. Doesn’t work, timeout only works a little…the little guy (3) knows what he can get away with and how to push her buttons. I smacked his hand one time to keep him from doing something dangerous and he quit. It works. I know from experience (many a peachtree switch across the buttocks).
        These kids are a RESULT of liberal thinking and the “Great Society”. Prior to Johnson, almost 90% of black families were two parent families. It was down to about 45% at one time. It is slowly increasing as more and more blacks are beginning to realize that the liberals are simply masters of different type slavery…

      It’s not the parents, it’s the culture. Why not profile with the curfew or send the troublemakers down to Georgia, we won’t even notice the difference.

            Hopefully one day we will here about a citizen shooting these mobs.
            I pack especially if I`m in an area I`m not from, I will not be a victim, don`t care about gun laws either. What good is it if you respect gun laws but you are seriously injured or dead????? I`d rather go to prison than suffer at the hands of a criminal.

            • Stopper

              That’s the answer, carry concealed and protect yourself, the police are unable to protect the citizen. I carry a 9mm loaded with golden saber plus, that just about stops anyone with a coule hits.

            • Citizen

              Suggest you obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon, but your own self preservation is paramount. You know the old axiom, “if they outlaw guns, the only people that have them will be outlaws”

          I have a permit and do carry (in the South, where we don’t to have this problem like Northern Liberal cities, ie: Milwaukee and Minneapolis). Be careful, for when you off one or two of these punks,you will end up like Zimmermen. The black leaders and Liberal press will be lynching you instead of the miscreant who thereatened your life. Better to be judged by 12 than buried by 6.

          Racial desegregation has been a mistake — a bloody mistake. Blacks and whites cannot live together peaceably, and to pretend otherwise is to ignore the cold realities of everyday life. For the sake of people of all races, laws prohibiting the right of people to freely associate with others on the basis of race (or any otther criterion) should be overturned.

            A nice sentiment, but entirely too soft-hearted. America was made by White Christian Men for White Christian men. All others must learn their places or leave.

    LOL! How weak. How weak. A curfew? Wow. You morons. 6 mob attacks!? Really!? Really!? How is this not national/international news!!!? Mob attacks. MOB. ATTACKS. Your answer is a curfew!? Really? My mind is blown! Please tell me someone who went to college thought that up.

    • digger of the Truth

      I guess ya have to start somewhere . What would you do ????

      • Kay

        Write your representatives/legislators. Tell them to keep violent people off the street the first time they turn up in the system. End the revolving door criminal justice system. Stop overcrowding jails with nonviolent perps. Why do we wait until someone is dead before taking them off the play ground?

        • SirGareth


          How do your representative/legislators cash in on this – where’s the doe-ra-me in it for them?

          The reason we have a revolving door criminal justice system is because the government class is not here to serve you – you are here to serve them.

          These thugs know better than to cap a g-,man. When did Sirhan-Sirhan get paroled for killing a Kennedy?

          See what I mean – no revolving doors for those who bring harm to the political class and there is your answer – it doesn’t work, so carry a gun instead – guns work.

          • Dale Gribble

              It is not national news because it is blacks attacking whites and it happens everyday across America.


      • paul

        police snipers on the roof after 8 with night vision scopes. I think that would end it. After announcing the new step to control this all you would have to do is place a few rounds on the ground near them.Or you can do nothing and let some person die from an attack. I am sure it would not be a hate crime. Not in Holders eyes.

        • paul

          Rubber bullets

              Nerve gas and a sealed room. We need to save the nation. Criminal and inferior elements of population must be removed.

      • Stopper

        Starting somewhere is a 9mm concealed carry, that just about stops any attack. It’s obvious the police are not able to protect the citizens so you must protect yourself.

      • timmay

        what would I do? tell the police to shoot on site and tell every citizen to arm themselves and take control of their own safety….or we can just tell the punks to be home in bed at 8 oclock and see where that gets us

        • jackactionhero

          What you don’t understand about an 8 o’clock curfew is that we aren’t just TELLING the punks to be off the streets, we’re taking them to jail if they’re found ON the streets after 8. So yes, it DOES work.

          • Joe

            .It is not all kids. It is black kids.. It is also not all black kids. What is needed is profiling. We all know who is causing the trouble. Also we need to have citisens armed and ready to intervene. These idiots have killed people in other cities.

    • Judy

      I too like your idea, but have one reservation. Where do you think the $500 dollars for every kid will come from?? TAXPAYERS who are already strapped? Too bad the parents of these uncontrolled kids cant be held responsible!!

      • Curioso

        Charge the parents once the a**holes are convicted. And start wasting a few of the meaningless, useless, pathetic pieces of stuff before they kill an innocent victim. Why don’t you see that the war has started and the gauntlets have been tossed?

      • PeteM1999

        And where does that money come from? It comes from us the working people who pay taxes. So in the end we pay them to live, we pay them to breed (the more kids the more they are payed), we pay for them to live, and now we take the chance of paying with our lives if we go out to enjoy ourselfs. When does it all end? Generation after generation and we are reaping what we have sown. So now were going to enact a curfew and expect them to obey it? There are laws that prohibit assualt and battery and that has slowed them down??? Not at all, these people exist at the lowest level of the social scale and understand one thing, brute force.
        It is time brute force was applied to them, whether it be guns or a good police style beating, water cannons what ever. This they would understand and respect! These group style attacks that are going on in this country will end when they are met with a reaction that is equal to or greater then the violence they are using. Once it starts to hurt they will stop!

        • Davey

          Amen. I was stalked by a group of black punks 6 years ago. They didn’t even stop after I took a shot at them in my own backyard. What did stop them was the next week when they showed up at the restaurant where I was and drove through the parking lot. I jumped out of my car, with my revolver in one hand and cellphone in the other. I fully expected to have to kill them. They saw the gun and left. 4 ‘black as Aces’ and the other a 1/2 breed named Blake. I know where they live and sent the cops, who I had called on the cell, to their house with the tag number of the car.

    • Just Sayin

      You think these kids go to school? These kids are thr product of Baby mamas having 6-10 children then not giving a damn what they are doing until they end up shot by their peers or the cops. Then it’s OUTRAGE for the “poor innocent little baby” who’s average attire and attitude is that of a cCrip or Blood. If these women wanted to actually RAISE their children then they might ONE DAY contribute to society rather then just demanding unearned money.

    Shutting down the buses – what a great idea. All those in favor, here’s the volunteer sign-in log for designated driver! Oh, and for waiting the tables, because businesses won’t have enough staff to do the busing!

    The obvious answer, to me, is that an adequate number of police have to be hired to walk the area and do what they’re supposed to be doing: protecting the populace. In a lovely world, everybody knows how to behave without somebody setting boundaries … but that’s not this world.

    “I don’t feel like that would solve the problem because I feel that kids that would adhere to the curfew aren’t the ones causing the problems to begin with.”

  • June

    Say there is flooding in an area, so you put up a damn to keep the water out. The water will simply go elsewhere.

    So when a mob attacks the wrong person with a ccw, are we going to have another treyvon story? Then we will hear “could this been prevented?”

  • Sue

    If a minor gets caught doing something wrong or breaking the law, they should do 30 days in jail and the parents should be fined a 500.00 dollar fine. They just has much to blame because they don’t care what their children do or they say that they can’t control them.

    • Get'r done

      But 30 days in jail costs the tax payer $15,000 dollars. I agree with you sentiment, but there isn’t enough jail space and it costs too damn much. Take away their rights to use societies infrastructure, welfare, health care, buses, roads, buying cigarettes, block cell phone service, etc.

      • thesuperman

        OMG. That actually makes sense. But only in our dreams will it ever happen.

    • Jar

      30 days in jail? Is there something magical about that length of time that heals w/e is wrong with the brains of violent people? Our revolving door justice system is why this problem persists. The purpose of a cage is to keep dangerous people away form the rest of us, not to give them a “time out”. Our indifference to violent acts, to stories of people getting permanent brain damage, etc. just blows my mind. Have you ever been socked in the face by an adult male fist? It’s painful. It’s not like in the movies where you just shake it off. Permanent nerve damage, chronic pain… Why do insurance defrauders get 30 years, no questions asked, but someone who bashes a loved one’s head in gets a stern talking to by a judge? It’s insane. Where are our brains?

    • SirGareth

      I think you are mistaking the union of a sperm and an egg for a human being.

      Humans take a great deal of good care in the making. These ‘kids’ got government care instead; now they simply look like humans instead of of actually being human.

      For the most part these animals are failed humans and will never achieve the status that society demands of its members; gunning them down in the streets as they go about their forays of violence will cull their members and make them more cautious – its worth a try.

  • angry Minnesotan

    Why is it that the few are ALWAYS allowed to ruin it for the many? Now band groups that come to town will not be allowed out after dark, because of these idiots. Kids that come to town for the DECCA convention will not be allowed to go out and eat and spend money because of these idiots. Kids that come to town for sporting events will not be allowed out after dark and to spend money after their competitions because of these idiots.

    this is the downward spiral. It started with “white flight” where they took all their money and ran away to raise their kids safely. Then business (Target moving out to the suburbs), and now kids will not even be allowed outside downtown. So, this social experiment is failing miserably and Murderapolis is already dependent upon the surrounding communities to support them with “tax disparity” payments, but what will Murderapolis do when those cities can not or will not pay that money?

    • May

      White flight, making sure never to go into certain areas of town, etc. never solves the problem, just sweeps it under the rug, just hides it the way families hide the secret of an uncle’s alcoholism. We need to petition our legislators to end the revolving door justice system, keep violent people in a cage permanently (with few excpetions) THE FIRST TIME they turn up in the system, and stop over crowding jails with nonviolent perps (people who need addiction treatment).

      • Just Sayin

        Is it just impossible for you to ADMIT that teens having MULTIPLE children before the age of 20 is the REAL problem? THEY are STILL children themselves so when their babbies actually need to be raised they want to go out to the club to hook and and get wasted. START there and you will actually start making a difference but the WHITE GUILT won’t allow for an honest discussion on this problem.

        • Michele

          Actually, there are plenty of white kids out there who are a problem, too, so I don’t think it has anything to do with guilt.

          I think that boys need a rite of passage, and our society isn’t giving it to them, so they’re finding it for themselves. It’s messed up, and it’s self-destructive. I don’t know what the answer is.

          • Kent

            More ignorance. You never mention the failure of the family and the responsability of the parents to raise the kids. All you want to do is force us, the taxpayer to GIVE MORE to these animals. How about we link baby momas EBT card to the behavior of her spawn. Start reducing her EBT money and things would change in a hurry.

            • Michele

              Hm. So you don’t think rich kids are causing problems? Kids left alone are kids left alone. Doesn’t matter their color or their economic level.

            My “rite of passage” meant working 48 hours per week to save up cash for school.

    Truth and facts are pills can’t liberals can’t swallow. Obviously you’ve been indoctrinated and don’t know your history. Lincoln was a Republican, I know, that’s tough for libs to handle so to “feel” better they distort history. Bottom line is the blacks are causing problems downtown and pointing to history as an excuse is unacceptable.

    • jackactionhero

      Talk about not understanding reality.

      The beliefs of each political party have traded places in the last 150 years, so Republicans and Democrats have each switched sides entirely during that time. Don’t be so naive as to think Abe Lincoln was today’s Conservative. He wasn’t.
