    Ain’t Kevin a miserable coward who would never share his racist feelings with someone outside of his race.

    I think the robber needs a big hug…..a hug so big that his eyes pop out, his lungs collapse & then finally die

    Since the “church” decided to bring inner city families to the Alexandria area, there has been an 80 year old man robbed and killed for 20 bucks, a lady bludgeoned to death in Osakis when she came home for lunch, and now this…… Diversity, what a winner

  8. Steph says:

    Diversity is a joke! Keep them all down in the cities please, we don’t need them up here. This area is way too nice and the people, the working class good people, don’t need this garbage hanging around and leeching off their communities and getting hand outs they don’t deserve. I hope that elderly gentleman is able to get past his awful experience and feel safe again in his home.
