    He walks like a yard ape. Shouldn’t be hard to find this one. Anyone check the zoo?

        Em, this cant be you. If it is, everyone needs to know that you’re actually serious and banging the innocent until proven guilty drum. That theory was fine when “technology” and “wheel” were used in the same sentence, but these days only select cases require the long drawn out expensive charade that is our legal system. This moronic mind set and these stupid expensive outdated philosiphies need to meet their end.

        1. em0886 says:

          The moronic mindset is the one that immediately assigns guilt on a 2 paragraph news article and a tiny grainy photo.

          1. Dave's Not Here says:

            Whoever is in that photo is guilty, and guilt therefore can be assigned.

            I do not think that is even questionable at this point. Or are you theorizing he is there to fix the trailer, and the items that went missing while he was videotaped taking them are gone by coincidence?

  2. Squinting says:

    Can you make the photo a little smaller, I can almost see what he looks like

  3. Maybe says:

    If the police patrolled NORTH a little more MAYBE just MAYBE it might lower crime

    1. Doubtful says:

      Doubtful….I don’t have police patrolling my neighborhood every second and the crime seems to be faaaar lower….I wonder what the difference is??

  4. who knows says:

    Such a great photo, I’m sure he will be behind bars in no time at all!

  5. just sayin says:

    Oh I think we can narrow it down to North Minneapolis.

  6. moron says:

    Pictures can tell 1,000 words…

  7. Tyrone says:

    What about the fact that he’s black. That’s kinda important…

    1. Joseph E. Blow says:

      I would have to agree. Why isn’t the race of a thief important enough to report if they are seeking information from the public?

      1. Sarah says:

        cuz it’s WCCO – that’s why

        1. Community Organizer says:

          other reports have him as Hispanic or American Indian. FWIW: http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/128719563.html

  8. Garry Freeman says:

    just a $1000 dollar reward? Make it $5000 dead 6000K if his head is delivered on a pungi stake. I bet that will cure a heck a lot of wanna be thieves. Maybe Sharia law would not be such a bad thing for a thief.

  9. r rush says:

    I guess the bright side of this is he wasnt killing anyone

    1. well says:

      Had he been caught by someone he probably would have attempted to.

  11. See BS says:

    Can’t we just have them rounded up and exterminated? Enough is enough.

  12. jeff says:
