After a flurry of activity in 2013, it appears public officials who represent North Minneapolis have thrown up their hands and walked away from the issue of Level Three sex offenders being outrageously concentrated in North Minneapolis. 

One of the sex offenders is question was Jesse Lee Garland, who lived in North Minneapolis for the longest time. Recently, however, a commenter drew my attention to Mr. Garland, asserting that (in summary) he wasn't such a bad guy and this blog was dragging down Garland's good name...

(Corrected blog post: Two suspects were identified from Facebook by police, allegedly, one of which is Dwayne A. Garner and the other is Henry Lee Devon Moore. Neither use their real name on Facebook. An incorrect version of this blog post appeared for a few hours online until it was drawn to my attention by a commenter that I had switched up the Facebood information between Henry Lee Devon Moore and Dwayne Garner. Therefore this blog post was taken offline, corrected, and put back online with correction here noted. 

JNS blog strives for accuracy. When error is drawn to my attention, I leap to make correction and I make a public note of the correction)

A Shooting In Front Of An Apartment Complex

Henry Lee Devon Moore, who is also accused of a vicious robbery at the Northside UnBank, is now also charged with murder. He was reportedly identified by police based upon Moore's Facebook profile, which uses the name Henry Bouffants Moore. An alleged co-conspirator, Dwayne A. Garner, reportedly uses the Facebook profile FinessKing Sto, click here for that profile. JNS blog will get around to writing about THAT Facebook profile later.  

It should be noted the criminal complaint says "FitnessKing" when it is, in fact, "FinessKing." 

According to the criminal complaint, on October 23 multiple shots rang out on the 1700 block of Glenwood Ave. N. in front of a housing complex and police who responded to the scene found...

Flood was fresh off a conviction for "Liquor in the Park." It was only November 24 of last month that Flood was convicted for this minor crime, and he still owed the court system the sum of...

Jail roster information tipped this blog to the fact Khayree Copeland was charged either with murder or attempted murder, and it turns out to be a case of "attempted" in what sounds like a sad little pot deal gone wrong outside of 1915/1913 Willow Ave. N., a property owned by the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority.

The court date has been moved too many times to count. This alone is devastating for a family that needs to fly into town for every court date. The next court date is December 19th at 9:00 am before the Honorable Judge Kathryn L. Quaintance.

This is an omnibus hearing to go over the TON of motions that Philip Bertelsen has filed. I have spoken directly with a reliable source and have learned that he allegedly is disputing the blood test. He is claiming that he was knocked out by...

If you are a felon, you are prohibited from having a gun. That means ANY gun, including a BB gun. Incredibly, for legal purposes a BB gun is a firearm of very minor caliber...in the case of the gun Anthony Johntay Carrillo is accused of possessing, the caliber is .177. 

It could still put out an eye! 

According to a complaint filed back in April, police were called to a gas station on...
