St. Cloud Mall Suspect’s Brother Denied Release From N.D. Jail For Funeral

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The brother of a man accused of attacking 10 people at a central Minnesota mall before being killed by an off-duty police officer won’t be released from a North Dakota jail to attend the funeral.

East Central Judicial District Judge Thomas Olson on Wednesday refused to temporarily release from jail 27-year-old Abdullahi Adan, of St. Cloud, Minnesota. He is the brother of Dahir Ahmed Adan, who authorities have accused of going on a knife attack Saturday at the mall in St. Cloud.

Court records show Abdullahi Adan pleaded not guilty to two felony drug counts in July. He is being held at the Cass County Jail.

Abdullahi Adan’s attorney did not immediately return a call Thursday seeking comment on the case.

    Bad news for him, but … there is Good news for all alien non-citizen Muslims: In response to your demands; Minneapolis Public Housing Authority has modified it’s policies to allow holding your subsidized section 8 town-home or welfare tower suite rent-free while you are home overseas for El-kida, Isis or El-shskabob training and or other “personal business” for periods exceeding one calendar month or thirty consecutive days. Although your monthly welfare payments cannot as yet be sent overseas, you may pick them up immediately upon your return to the USA. Homeless US citizens and their children including homeless US armed forces veterans will be kept on waiting lists and not allowed to rent your units while you are at home overseas tending to what is important to you. We now pay your fare both ways for each round trip when you Go Home.

    class act family there. And our current administration wants to bring tens of thousands more “peace loving” Muslims into this country. Please explain to me how bringing people here that swear to kill all non believers and that hate our freedoms is good for us? Does “experiencing other cultures” by having our head chopped off, tossing gay people from ten story buildings, or being stabbed in a mall somehow make us better people?

      Doesn’t make us ‘America’ better, it’s all for democratic political gain and nothing else.

      I wonder why there was no comment page allowed for the article that is force feeding the kids about all differnt cultures fom the mid east and latino countries? Could it be because they never spend any time on George Washington, and all that transpired in the RICH history of our country?
      Can she tell them that George is on the One Dollar bill, so we ‘Never Forget,’ what he and those that rallied around him, did for all of us. It should be in every grade from kindergarten, to Grade 12. It is much more important than learning about warring and lazy cultures.

  3. So, it’s a family thing then, this criminality.

    Ah, the joys of diversity…

    In Minnesota they’d give him the key to the jail and roll out a red carpet.
