Out in places like Chaska, they call a community meeting and everybody is up in arms...then the offender goes somewhere else, probably North Minneapolis.
But here in North Minneapolis, we just get an email and--if we're lucky--a few fliers on the door. This situation will not cease until somebody sues the Department of Corrections and seeks the protection of the law for our North Minneapolis neighborhoods. There is a statute which says sex offenders are not supposed to be "concentrated" in neighborhoods, but obviously that statute isn't worth the paper it is written upon until somebody takes it to court and demands its application.
In the meantime, this particular offender is...
Antar Abdulahi Ali, a man who raped a 14-year-old girl after using a ruse of offering assistance, then used physical force resulting in injuries to "gain compliance." The victim was a complete stranger to Ali.
Ali lives on the 2200 block of 6th Ave. N. If I find out the exact address, I will publish it, just like more than half the states of the United States publish the specific addresses of Level Three sex offenders, and Minnesota should join that list.
