A Dangerous Concentration Of Six Level Three Sex Offenders In One Block...Including Richard Bernard Dawkins At 2517-25 Golden Valley Road

As part of my ongoing effort to obtain and publish the specific addresses of every Level Three sex offender (L3SO) in North Minneapolis, today I went to the 2500 Block of Golden Valley Road. Like the vertical portion of a capital "T" meeting the horizontal portion, so does the 1900 block of Thomas Ave. N. meet the 2500 block of Golden Valley Road.
And this wouldn't matter very much, except there are three L3SOs on the 2500 block of Golden Valley Road, and there are three on the 1900 block of Thomas Ave. N.
As the Minneapolis Crime blog wrote, there is a statute which is supposed to...
...protect neighborhoods by trying to limit concentrations of sex offenders. But it's pretty clear this statute doesn't mean anything without our neighborhoods SUING SOMEBODY and North Minneapolis has become a de facto dumping ground for dangerous deviants. Clearly, the state will continue to mass up the most predatory and dangerous sex offenders in our vulnerable neighborhood until we scream "Whoah! ROLL THEM BACK!"
Well, this blog is screaming "Whoah! ROLL THEM BACK!" It is my understanding an ad hoc committee is meeting in Willard-Homewood about this issue today. God speed.
The three L3S0s who reside on the 2500 block of Golden Valley road are Richard Bernard Dawkins, Dennis Dion Taylor and Richard Allen Thompson. The three who reside a short distance away, on the 1900 Block of Thomas Ave. N., are Frederick Arden Hamilton, Wil (sic) Isaiah Killian, and William Troy Thompson.
This part of Golden Valley Road is full of stylish old 11 or 12-plex apartment buildings, one of which is owned by slumlord Mahmood Khan. However, when Mahmood Khan was contacted, Khan specifically denied renting to Level Three sex offenders (at his building on Golden Valley Road) and asked whether he wouldn't be NOTIFIED of something like that, if a Level Three sex offender was trying to rent from him?
At this point, I know at least one of the offenders is residing at the building marked "2517-25 Golden Valley Road." I personally saw the individual who I can positively identify as Richard Bernard Dawkins enter that locked, secured building. Dawkins is a sick puppy who sexually penetrated a 10-year-old girl. He used to reside on the 2400 block of Portland Ave. S, but now he resides in North Minneapolis at 2517-25 Golden Valley Road, unknown which specific apartment within the building.
The building is owned by Cheryl A. McCluskey of 7957 McKinley St. NE, Spring Lake Park, MN, 55432. It seems likely she is the same Cheryl McCluskey affiliated with Cam Real Estate LLC, located at 2601 Golden Valley Road. My search hits kind of a dead end at this point, but I'd be happy to receive more info about Cheryl A. McCluskey, who is responsible for housing at least one Level Three sex offender in my vulnerable neighborhood, in a block where six of them are dangerously concentrated.
