Crime is spilling into Minneapolis’ suburbs, putting the neighborhoods "under attack from mobile criminals," one local mayor said. Our town, and our neighboring towns, have had their security and serenity under attack from mobile criminals who are coming into Edina and other nearby communities to steal private property and in some cases injuring people who resist or assist a victim," Edina Mayor Jim Hovland said in an email to residents of the town Sunday, Fox 9 reported. "Edina residents have become angry and fearful. The peace and tranquility of our community has been disrupted. At a time when we should


The criminals have no problem with crossing city borders to steal, rob, and sometimes murder. It's worth noting the complaining mayor is a Republican-turned-liberal Democrat who works hard to make his fair city 'blue'.

You can thank the media that supported Antifa and Black Lives (don't) Matter. Enabling the violence and looting. Under reporting how bad it really was. Instead they created straw men to kick around and blamed it all on White Supremacy and the cops. You can thank Soros and the DA's he helped buy. Thank the bought and paid for Mayors. Thank the gutless Governors who would rather have mayhem and chaos so as to not offend anyone. But... This is all by design.

Cops can't be everywhere all the time. In Minneapolis, I don't blame them for being nowhere. The only way these melanated creatures will be stopped is with armed citizens killing them.

This is the time for those impacted “neighboring” towns to remember that the Second Amendment is there for them, and that it is about time for them to create and deploy local militias to secure their communities in support of their police.

Simply put up road blocks and man them with armed deputized citizens who will check any vehicles coming from certain locals.

White guilt liberals with NIMBY attitudes now not feeling safe. I guess supporting BLM painting downtown with BLM banners would appease the dark savages. Living your life that the beast would eat you last or not at all when you wave your solidarity flag in their face. Anti-police now they need police, anti-gun now they need a gun pro-BLM now they don't want blacks only liberals think like that until their toes are stepped on.

If I was a mayor of a city surrounding Minneapolis, I'd be fighting hard to hire away as many Minneapolis police officers as I can. And I'd have heavy 24/7 patrols along my city limits abutting Minneapolis. But then again, I'm smarter than that. I don't live in Minnesota.

#4 & #5 have the easiest and simplest solutions. Y'all need to get out those new guns you bought last year and use them. Yes, racial profiling will yield the best results. Put out the roadblocks and hit them from both sides. There will be cries of "racism!" but then when has there not been since 2008? Stereotypes are formed by using lots of bad examples.

My only comfort about this is the leftists who thought they were safe in the suburbs with their BLM signs are now realizing that they're no immune from the consequences of their liberalism. Judging from California's idiocy, their recovery will take decades if it ever happens at all.

The solution is simple. Everyone should be on the lookout for "mobile" individuals. If you see someone who looks "mobile" - - call the police! You don't need a much more detailed description than that. Also - - FTA: "Carjackings in Minneapolis have spiked this year. " Hey - - all you homeys in Newark! Are you going to let some hillbilly town diss you and take away your title - - as the carjacking capital of America? You boyz - - you better get cracking and jacking - - before it's too late!

There is valet parking at the exclusive mall in Edina (Galleria). I had lunch at the Good Earth restaurant there recently. For those of us who grew up in homes were luxury was a once- a year visit to McDonalds, it is hard to stomach the smug pretentiousness of the very white woke culture in places like this. I would say that the brains of these idjits have been frostbitten too often, except it's not exclusive to northern climes. I blame in large part the liberal (now leftist) churches that followed the lies of the left-wing academics in brainwashing tender flocks into relieving their faux white guilt by caving in to every corrupt notion and demand of the far left. Still lots of good solid folks in MN (even in the Cities). I reserve my sorrow for them Ramona (the Pest)

I attended Edina High School starting in 1968 and was a sophomore that year, the year that liberal indoctrination was introduced there. My class was the first class to be worked over. My parents were both alcoholics with good jobs and when I wasn’t home getting verbally abused, listening to them argue or starving because dinner was never ready before 8:00 I was at school being verbally abused by the new and malicious teachers from the U. of Minnesota for living in Edina which meant to them, in their ignorance, that we all had it made. Money isn’t everything. There was a student walkout when we invaded Cambodia, John Denver came to sing in the gym and my friends and I were so disgusted by the juvenile pretentiousness of it all that we just left for the rest of the day. So did a lot of other kids. Edina was a marked town, even back then. None of my old friends live in Edina anymore. If they didn’t leave the Cities they moved to Minnetonka or Eden Prairie. I graduated and went to nursing school (I paid) and went on to a career as an RN, Navy/corporate wife and mother. Edina taught me to work hard and value honor. #7, old joke. Try getting some new material.

MEDFORD, Mass. — Police are searching for the people responsible for smash-and-grab robberies at several Massachusetts jewelry stores. Surveillance video shared by Touch of Midas in Burlington shows nine people breaking through the front door in the overnight hours between Saturday and Sunday. Those people then used hammers to smash display cases in order to grab fistfuls of jewelry. Those thieves were able to run off before anyone could catch them. Roland Racicot, the owner of Roland's Jewelry, said thieves broke into his 30-year-old Medford business and stole about $15,000 in merchandise the same night Touch of Midas was robbed. The

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously passed ground-breaking legislation to provide paid sick leave for cleaners, nannies, gardeners and other domestic workers. The measure — the first of its kind in the country — would affect some 10,000 people in San Francisco who work in private homes to clean, cook, tend children, garden, do personal organizing, or provide non-medical care for disabled people or seniors. This workforce is typically low-paid with many women and immigrants, supporters said. “I think these people have been taking care of people in San Francisco for a long time, and it’s about

As a recent wave of mob-led store robberies has put retailers, mall operators and communities on edge, one popular shopping center is keeping an unusual security measure in place through the holiday season. The Grove, a famous open-air shopping complex in Los Angeles, has added a high coil fence barrier that resembles barbed wire at the property's entrances and exits. Management added the "tangled tape" coil fencing, which is made from a custom aluminum-and-steel mesh, ahead of Thanksgiving weekend. The fencing is installed nightly after the mall closes and removed before it reopens, and it's just one of the security

Full disclosure: I despise Steven Spielberg movies and dislike both Romeo and Juliet and the 1961 West Side Story (WSS) movie. For that reason, I take particular delight in noting that Steven Spielberg's remake of WSS may have enthralled critics, but no one is rushing to see it. And no wonder, given that it's so darn woke that parts of it are in a language most Americans don't speak, but Spielberg refused to include subtitles. Let me quickly get through my biases. I hate Steven Spielberg movies because I find them overblown, predictable, and incredibly boring. I also dislike the way he presents children.

A recent survey finds that 67% of vaccinated Americans believe the unvaccinated should pay a “COVID tax” to cover businesses’ pandemic safety expenses, but most business owners and the unvaccinated themselves don’t believe in such fees. Skynova, an invoicing software for small businesses, conducted the digital survey of 1,075 Americans. The firm’s project manager, Joe Mercurio, said the survey reflects a “consensus among people … that unvaccinated people should have to pay precautionary COVID-19 fees when visiting a business” to help cover the costs of personal protective equipment and other materials.(Snip)Higher prices for unvaccinated consumers would amount to “a new tax” to help business owners cover the $132
