    Dang it Ole and Lena, YOu need to do a better job or raising your children or were going to have too send you back too Norway. Maybe a belt behind the shed would stop these youngsters from doing such crimes.

      I doubt they were of Norwegian desent. I’m guessing they’re black, but ofcourse there is no photo. Tried to look them up on Henn. Co. jail roster & there’s no pictures there either. Hmmmm???

    Semaj Williams?

    Anybody notice his name is “James” spelled backwards? Only a black woman would do that to her child… Like the story of “Leanthony” from the other day.

      Would you name your kid a typical Anglo name after your ancestors were brought here in chains to be the slaves of Anglo people?

  3. disgusting says:

    Remember when this was a great place to live?

    1. The Architect says:

      No. I don’t remember it ever being a great place. Folks with my skin tone don’t belong in that neighborhood, and aren’t welcome there.

        Oh, you silly troll. I’m guessing you’ve never been to the Cooper neighborhood, where a tragedy like this is extremely rare.

        How sad and horrifying for this man and his family.

    No need to be racist about it. (Can’t we all just smoke a bong) They got got the guys in a day or two. That’s what matters. Good job Minneapolis Police!

    1. Iconoclast says:

      Yeah, I said “got got”. Live with it.

    2. put down the bong says:

      A guy is dead is what matters.

    May these POS’s die in prison where they belong. The world is a better place with these LOSERS behind bars! RIP Shea.

    Why didn’t WCCO show his photo when they had it. Is this some reverse discrimination, if you’re white and murdered, we won’t show your photo so anyone who might know you could mourn. I think this is over editing for so-called no effect in the neighborhood. WCCO showed all the people at the meeting were white, why not show a nice photo that they had of the man who died defending his own home. Just saying WCCO.
