The building pictured above is NOT slumlord Keith Reitman's Ugly Ass Chocolate Brown Building.
No, this is one of the "Blue Sisters." This building (and its equally slummy sister, careful as you look at it, you can get splinters in your eyes just from LOOKING at it) recently won the "what should Johnny's next blogging obsession be?" contest.
I just thought I'd make it perfectly clear why...
...I'm going out of my way to write about a relatively minor alleged drug possessor who REPORTEDLY lives in one of Keith Reitman's OTHER buildings. There's only so much I can write about the "blue sisters," but all the livelong day I can virtually trip over information about Keith Reitman's (alleged) tenants ending up in jail.
Keeping in mind the roster is what it is, an imperfect document, but the fact somebody would even CLAIM to be in a Keith Reitman building, or have ID (false or otherwise) putting them in a Keith Reitman building, and then the information would hit the jail roster, this tells us PLENTY about Reitman, his buildings, and many (not all) of his tenants.
Torrie Danielle Norvell, DOB 9/22/81, was received by the Hennepin County Jail at 10:45 AM today, and her home address is listed as 1407 1/2 West Broadway, which is under the "master address" of 1405 West Broadway, known on this blog as the Ugly Ass Chocolate Brown Building. It's the same building where a child plunged from the window and Keith Reitman settled out of court. The settlement happened a year ago but this blogger caught wind of it when I got back from Afghanistan, quite recently, and nobody else wrote about it, so hey.
Norvell is in jail this moment on a "continued case" for possession of "not small amount" of marijuana. She (I assume this is a "she") has previously been convicted of providing false info to the police, for which she received a year probation and STILL owes $153 from that charge, which was back in 2007.
The outstanding amount has been sent to collections.
All the denizens of the jail roster are interesting to me, but denizens who reportedly live in Keith Reitman buildings are the most interesting of all BECAUSE OF HIS CRAPPY BLUE SISTERS BUILDINGS.
