A former Minneapolis, Minnesota mayoral candidate was mercilessly beaten up by two teenage girls after having his cellphone stolen at a Mall of America Starbucks. Mark Andrew came in second to Betsy Hodges in the most competitive mayoral race Minneapolis has seen in a generation. The former Hennepin County Commissioner had just hung up the phone and was in the middle of writing his New Year´s resolutions Thursday evening when a young man came up and swiped his iPhone 4S off the cafe table. ´I was targeted because the phone was out and I´m 63 years old, and I´m sure

Hardcore white lefty receives a solid beat-down at the hands of black girls wielding an Assault Billy Club who knew, instinctively, that he was "easy pickins."

Chickens coming home to roost, with white liberals hardest-hit by the anti-gun laws they so cherish.

Oh well, that´s just the way it is in the era of Obama. Just about everybody is considered easy pickins´ from the top on down. His only hope is that the police can find his i-phone by way of installed software or that it can be locked and made useless.

There weren´t 2 or 3 men among the hundreds that couldn´t have stepped forward and stopped this? Apparently no firearmes involved. Pajama Boy was the right icon for manhood after all.

Sounds like this isn´t their first time attacking someone. Now that a white liberal politician has been touched by the monster they created, maybe, perhaps, there will be a crackdown.

I, too, was disgusted that no one helped. My husband and I both said we´d have intervened. Crazy, feral children (only she didn´t say children).

Can you imagine teaching school where these cretins are enrolled and attending? These kinds of girls populated the student body in one of the schools where I taught in Michigan. Many of them spent most of their days in either the Principal´s office or in the Counselor´s office. You know they have to be kept in school at all costs - no matter how much of a disturbance they are.

Actually, if they aren´t in one of the offices, they are in Special Ed where they can color and listen to music while they do basic math and learn to spell words like cat, dog, rat, baby, girl, boy, etc. I do think these kinds of people are getting more rabid now than when I taught school.

Thank you #11 for the tip on carrying a cane.

I see I had no trouble convincing anyone of my cane suggestion, so let me amplify it. Many many years ago, eking out my college education as a security guard, I took a baton training course from my employers and learned the power of a short stick. Pushing sixty with bad knees, I made sure the cane I bought was strong hickory with hand grips up and down its length and a sharpened "horn" (the end of the crook). Anyone who will make that for you probably also supplies a brochure on the appropriate self-defense moves, which in truth you can master in twenty minutes, there are only a few good ones. They´re still very powerful, because for one thing, your adversary is very unlikely to expect them. Good luck to all. It´s a wonderful world, all told, but never forget it´s also a jungle.

´People ought to be able to sit and have a cup of coffee without fear of assault´

No, sorry, that´s not the way the world works. People need to be responsible for their own security wherever they are. Waiting for the police, or for someone from the crowd to help is not going to do it.

The first step is likely to move yourself and your family out of the state that refuses to allow you to defend yourself.

Get yourself, your wife, and your kids some quality firearms training, and go about armed.

The index and middle finger, when spread, equal the approximate distance between the two human eyeballs.

Should one find one´s self without any handy weapons it is good to remember that an assailant who has just been blinded with the afore mentioned digits penetrating rather painfully into his cranial cavity may be too pre-occupied to continue any further assault.

All it takes is guts and a will to survive....and prevail.

Actually #19, there was an independent candidate that ran who was very good and was actually a republican ( but couldn´t call himself that in Minneapolis and have any chance at getting elected).

Mark Andrew is part of the democrat elite that keeps shoveling money into pro sports stadiums and other programs that has local taxes going through the roof. A county commissioner was also mugged in his own driveway a few years back..... So....karma I guess....

Aimed properly, the sweet little girls would have been scalded and scarred for life. Would´ve done it in an instant. I cannot believe no one came to his aid.

I don´t have a cane because I don´t need one, although I could see how it would be an effective defense weapon. I do, however, have my friend "Parker" in my vehicle. Parker is a "Parker" brand hydraulic hose which is reinforced with steel mesh.

Because if incidents like this I had commented to my husband that I should have a hammer or club or something to defend myself if I were attacked in my vehicle. He makes/sells hydraulic hoses, among other things. He brought me home a chunk about 20 inches long. I wouldn´t want to be hit with it, that´s for sure.

Half of all foreign doctors in Britain do not have the necessary skills to work here but can practise because the competency exam is too easy, a major study finds. The majority of the 88,000 foreign doctors in the health service would fail exams if they were held to the same standard as their British colleagues, according to the research. The disclosure will add to concerns over the reliance of the NHS on foreign doctors. The language ability of some has been questioned in recent years.

The lawsuit, brought by John Drake, challenges the “justifiable need” requirement the state asks for carrying a handgun.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
