Some months ago Ike Wilson, Jr., achieved lasting fame in the mainstream media and this blog as the "janky" handgun shooter who accidentally killed Jason Youngmark at a backyard barbeque.
The story of what happened is told in a previous blog post, click here, but in summary: Ike Wilson is a sex offender but there he was at the barbeque, interested in buying a weapon in the possession of Jason Youngmark. The handgun was messed up (the word used was "janky") but in the desperate, dirty, low-end world inhabited by people like Wilson, it had value and he was interested. But the weapon went off and killed Youngmark.
(ADDENDUM, OCTOBER 2: Let it be perfectly clear this is the story being told by WILSON. Obviously, Youngmark isn't here to tell his side of the story)
Subsequently, Wilson was released on bail, click here.
Now Wilson is back in jail...
Wilson, who has no middle name and whose birthday is 2/6/83 (yup, it's the same guy) lists his current address as 5640 East River Road, Fridley, Minnesota. He was booked at 6 AM on September 27. The most recent charge appears to be aggravated robbery, and for that he's being held in lieu of $200,000 bail.
The other stuff listed might be the old charges which are coming up again, but it's a pretty impressive list.

In the opinion of this blogger, Wilson should have never been let go or his posted bond should have been astronomical. And I say this NOT because of the shooting, which seems to be a tragic accident. I say this because the man was attempting to buy a gun in a desperate deal in a stairwell, and so what was he likely PLANNING?
Um, maybe aggravated robbery? The very thing he's charged with now?
Lock this guy away FOREVER and please, make sure the lock on the cell isn't all "janky."
