Legendary Butter Roll Bakery Poised To Reopen Under New Ownership On West Broadway...

North Talk Facebook Forum image used under First Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism, blog post by John Hoff

The Butter Roll bakery on West Broadway, a striking building that dominates an important corner essential to the revitalization of West Broadway, is reportedly under new ownership.

Charmaine Wahlstrom, who has been discussing making some kind of major real estate purchase in North Minneapolis for at least two years, (and may have made other purchases, this blogger doesn't have that info at the moment) recently acquired the Butter Roll Bakery which had not been in business since the tragic and sudden death of Donald Petros, 66, in a vehicle accident that also injured his wife, Ginny Petros, also 66...

Because I happened to hear about it on Facebook, an incident that happened tonight on the 2600 block of Penn Ave. N. will be immortalized here in the blogosphere even though nobody was killed by gunfire. Here is what happened according to an account by Penn Ave. N. resident Jeff Skrenes, as posted on Facebook...

Something Is Amiss At 2131 Lyndale Ave. N., A Dark Pit Of Despair Even In The Best Of Times...

Photo and blog post by John Hoff


Nothing much positive ever seems to happen at 2131 Lyndale Ave. N., arguably the most unsightly house on Lyndale Ave. N., slummy crown jewel in Bashir Moghul's empire of slum.

This blogger has, in past blog postings, written about the Curtains Of Despair which hang in the windows of this house...a small but highly symbolic indication of how bad and chaotic the conditions probably are inside. Predatory offender Carl Lamont Donnell, when jailed, was listed as one occupant of the home. Fairly typical of the way Bashir Moghul screens his tenants. Neighbors living nearby have constantly reported drug dealing, as documented by Hawthorne Hawkman writing as a guest author on this blog.

Well, tonight it appears some other bad thing has happened in association with this property...

Vicki Cox-Maxwell, Alleged Ex-Wife Of Mortgage Fraudster Larry Maxwell, Writes Pleading, Whining Letter To Mortgage Fraud Victims...

409 31st Ave. N., formerly owned by Vicki Cox-Maxwell, photo and blog post by John Hoff

Vicki Cox-Maxwell, who describes herself as the "ex-wife" of mortgage fraudster Larry Maxwell, is most likely in California at the moment. She is named in the civil suit which was spawned by the mortgage fraud at 1564 Hillside Ave. N., as well as other addresses, and the resulting criminal trial which put Larry Darnell Maxwell in prison. Now identity theft victim John Foster and his wife, Melony Michaels, are suing numerous individuals involved in the fraud. In the course of those legal proceedings, Vicki Cox-Maxwell wrote an interesting letter to these mortgage fraud victims...

Two "Dog Held For Ransom" Incidents In North Minneapolis In Last Couple Months...

In mid-July, a resident of North Minneapolis named Shar'an (hereinafter "Sharan") couldn't find her little dog named Elle who was securely locked inside a backyard described as "gated, chained and padlocked."

As fate would have it, this unnerving doggy disappearance happened 10 minutes before an important job presentation. Instead of missing her job presentation, Sharan The Solid Citizen soldiered on, did the presentation as well as she could while upset, and then returned home to search for her dog...

How Easily "MITT ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT" Transforms Into "MONEY FOR PRESIDENT"

Photo and blog post by John Hoff

My sister, Mary, will not be voting for Mitt Romney. But for some unknown reason she was on Mitt Romney's mailing list and received a campaign poster.

The outside of the envelope said to open the envelope CAREFULLY to not tear the contents. This got my sister thinking about tearing and rearranging the contents, with the following results.

She's hoping another poster will arrive in the mail soon, so she can make a poster that says CRONY FOR PRESIDENT.

"Decent People" Forced To Witness Drive By Shooting Among "No Accounts" At Intersection of Hillside Ave. N. and Irving Ave. N.

Despite numerous rounds being fired, nobody was killed in a drive by shooting on Sunday, July 22. And because nobody was killed, mainstream media didn't bother to report anything.

But among the "decent people" in North Minneapolis who constantly plot how to make their neighborhood better, the gunfire is a hot topic of discussion on Facebook. The following letter describing the incident was emailed to city council members and reposted on Facebook...

YouTube Video Appears To Show Julian "Funny Moe" Anderson In Action...


YouTube video embed, above, blog post by John Hoff

Julian Anderson, age 15, a/k/a "Funny Moe" has been revealed by this blog to be the second (accused) shooter in the murder of Nizzel George, age 5.

Now one of my alert behind-the-scenes researchers has turned up YouTube video which seems to be "Funny Moe" in action. In the video, which is only 26 seconds, Funny Moe fights somebody nicknamed "BD Hagi."

One of the participants in the fight is wearing Golden Gopher apparel, like that worn by BD DQ Ynt (Donquarius Copeland) the accused killer of Rayjon Gomez.

During the video, something can be heard yelled about "Facebook." The scuffle, which appears half real and half staged, takes place in what appears to be the middle of the street. I would assume Funny Moe is the guy in light colored clothing, since the other guy's name is "BD" something and the particular group using "BD" as a label wears Golden Gopher apparel. But I'm not sure enough to bet anything on it.

In case this video is taken off YouTube after it appears here on Johnny Northside, I have already made a copy.

Garage Is All Messed Up At 2901 Dupont Avenue North, Neighbors Are All, Like, WTF?!?! Because 311 Calls Aren't Working...

Photos, blog post by John Hoff


Maybe if neighbors used the new, supercool 311 smartphone app, they'd get a better response?

The garage at 2901 Dupont Avenue North has been, to use the technical term, "messed up" like this for something like a year. Neighbors and members of the revitalizer "busy body" class have made a number of 311 complaints. Usually, 311 produces some kind of magic results. Not quickly, of course, but almost always results happen within months.

But that's not happening, lately, according to...

Good Sports Bar And Grill Asks, "Do You Feel Lucky, PUNK?" Completing My World Journey With A Basket Of Chicken Wings...

Photos, blog post by John Hoff

I dropped by Good Sports Bar and Grill recently and it was a meaningful visit. It was the first time I'd returned to that establishment since leaving for Afghanistan.

Furthermore, my last meal in North Minneapolis was right there at Good Sports, with my son. After eating at Good Sports, I took my son home to his mom and kept on driving down I-35, to Camp Shelby, Mississippi, to deploy overseas. So when I went to Good Sports the other day, once again with my son, and as usual we had flavorful chicken wings with amazing secret spices, I said to myself, "I am back. I am really and truly back. This is where the journey began, and this is where it ends, with my son and these amazing chicken wings."

I noticed some small changes to the restaurant...

Making My Home In North Minneapolis Extra Secure With Video Cameras...

Contributed photos, blog post by John Hoff

Practically since the moment I moved into my house, I have been wanting to get video security cameras but just didn't feel like I had the resources. Recently, I found a way to do it on the cheap with contributed technical expertise and low cost but effective gear obtained from the internet. Really, after the "demolition derby" incident of some months ago, I felt like I couldn't afford NOT to get cameras, pardon my deliberate use of a double negative for creative expression.

You're not familiar with the "demolition derby" incident I'm referencing? I hadn't written about it until now, actually...

Two Charged In "Five Dollars For Booze Murder," Exclusive Details, Etcetera, Insert Hype Here Like There's Something So Special About THIS Particular Brutal Murder By Young Thugs Run Amok...

Stock photo, blog post by John Hoff. (Stock photo does not depict a $5 bottle of booze nor, for that matter, the way it was probably consumed) 

Following a news release by the Hennepin County attorney's office, numerous media outlets reported the fact two individuals have been charged with beating a homeless man to death with a baseball bat, gaining only five bucks to buy themselves liquor and "have a good time." Click here for sample news coverage.

If any mainstream media outlets have linked to the original criminal complaint documents with all the details, I am unaware of it. Maybe some attentive, detail-oriented reader or a harsh little troll-faced critic can post a link to the criminal complaint.

In the meantime, running an oldie-but-goodie play from the Johnny Northside playbook, this blog will publish the actual criminal complaint word-for-word, dig up information about the address of the suspects and who owns the roof over their miserable heads, publish details on previous criminal records, and toss in whatever other interesting tidbits come my way.

Are you excited in a tried-and-true formulaic way? I know I'm feeling a familiar, somewhat frayed but still exciting form of excitement, sort of a "oh, boy, it's my thirteenth trip to Valley Fair" feeling.

Marcus Harcus, AKA "Bendele Hama Mbenge," Drops Out Of State Rep Race Against Joe Mullery, AKA "JOSEPH" Mullery, Like My Blog Wasn't Going To Find THAT Out...

Photo from Marcus Harcus campaign website but the truth is I swiped it from the North by Northside blog rather than go looking for it, blog post by John Hoff

WHAT IS STATE REP "JOE" MULLERY HIDING?

I did some digging and I'm pretty sure his full name is "JOSEPH."

But seriously, folks...

Marcus Harcus was running for State Rep against "Joe" Mullery until Harcus recently dropped out, barely bothering to disseminate word to voters and so Jeff Skrenes of North by Northside blog stepped to the forefront to inform the public, to the extent the public cares.

Reading the statement released by Harcus (as quoted on North by Northside) I was surprised by its tone. It was the kind of apologetic, taking-time-for-family, cryptically worded bunch of bullcrap you'd expect from some serious and promising political candidate who was caught behind the scenes bopping an intern, not a Facebook statement released by a second rate, wannabe candidate who never had a chance against Mullery, who was barely noticed IN the race and won't be missed much OUT of the race.

So what's the POINT of releasing a statement like this rending your political garments and putting ashes on your forehead?

Or is this what Harcus thinks you're SUPPOSED to say when you drop out of a political race? If so, Marcus would do well to use the "not a scandal behind the scenes, just never really had a chance" script instead of the "I hope my opponent keeps his promise not to make this torrid affair public" script.

North by Northside had mostly kind words for Marcus. This blog, however, is more known for frankness than kindness. To Marcus Harcus, who said he "felt like a loser" in this race, Johnny Northside replies...

"Calls For Service" At Problem House 2609 Colfax Ave. N., Where Julian "Funny Mo" Anderson Reportedly Lives...

Creative stock photo, New Orleans police department in action, blog post by John Hoff

Julian Anderson, age 15, named by my source as "Funny Mo," the second juvenile accused in the murder of Nizzel George, age 5, reportedly lived at 2609 Colfax Ave. N.

One or both of his parents lives there. His parents are Ihisha Chantella Anderson and Ernest Larnard Frieson. According to my source, the housing is funded through Section 8.

Like many "problem houses" where there is constant low-level drama involving frequent police calls, the house in question has been on the radar of the 4th Precinct Care Task Force, who are the source of a document with recent 911 calls to the address.

Here are the contents of that document...

More Exclusive Background Info On Julias Anderson, Named By Source As "Funny Mo" In Nizzel George Shooting...

Creative stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

Julian Anderson, age 15, has been named by a confidential, high-placed source as "Funny Mo," the second juvenile shooter in the shocking murder of Nizzel George, age 5. A new and informative Star Tribune article discusses the feud behind the shooting, click here, but does not provide the real name of Funny Mo.

In an earlier article, this blog was able to dig up information about Anderson's mother, but came up short looking for info about Anderson's father. This was due to having an unverified spelling for the name of Anderson's father.

With the spelling now verified, (and corrected) information has come my way...

Possible "Back Story" Info On Rayjon Gomez, Murdered At Age 13...

Facebook image of Rayjon Gomez, used under First Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism, blog post by John Hoff

Soon after I wrote about 13-year-old murder victim Rayjon Gomez's mother, Carmen Gomez, and her extensive criminal record (click here) more than one person asserted Rayjon Gomez had not lived his whole life with his mother. It was reported he'd spent some of his life with a woman who lived in Robbinsdale and acted in the role of foster mother.

It would be very informative to see that custody case court file. For now, I don't have it. However, some interesting information came my way about a family law case naming Carmen Gomez (Rayjon's mother) and a woman from Robbinsdale named Elaine M. Langums...

JNS BLOG SUPER EXCLUSIVE: High Placed Source Names "Funny Mo," Second Juvenile Allegedly Involved In Nizzel George Murder, As Julian Anderson, Age 15...

Creative stock photo and blog post by John Hoff

To cut right to the chase: Julian Anderson, age 15, of 2609 Colfax Ave. N. is reportedly the second juvenile allegedly involved in the murder of Nizzell George, age 5. This individual has been named by his alias, "Funny Mo," but his real name has not been revealed by the media due to the fact authorities have not released it.

Anderson is the child of somebody named Anderson and somebody named Frierson (spelling unconfirmed) currently living at that address, reportedly receiving Section 8 housing benefits. They are originally from Chicago. All this according to a highly placed and confidential source.

This is not how I like to write articles. I prefer to see information in front of me from official documents, or at least online documents. I prefer more verification. I do not like to just take somebody's word, no matter how important, reliable, and highly-placed that source might be.

I feel like I am stepping out over the water on faith with this information. I myself rate its likely veracity at only 85 percent, but this because I can't confirm to my satisfaction in the usual way. I believe my source believes it and my source is trustworthy, but also human. Take the info for what it is worth.

The motivation of the source makes sense. My source does not care for "the juvenile wall of silence." Juveniles commit terrible crimes, or are ALLEGED to have committed terrible crimes, and they are protected from having their identities revealed. Indeed (this is Johnny talking, here, not my source) it seems like some juveniles are being TAUGHT and TRAINED by their criminal parents in how to take advantage of their juvenile status to be more effective criminals in the making.

I should point out there's no law against the MEDIA publishing juvenile information if the information is true, many media simply refrain...

Media whose reporters don't live in my neighborhood and don't have to endure this kind of bulls*** day after day.

So, well, there is the info I have and I believe it to be true.

Bizarre (Alleged) "Brick Assault" In Ramsey County Involved (Alleged) North Minneapolis Resident Davina Rulford, A Convicted Prostitute...

Creative stock photo and blog post by John Hoff

First, let me make clear the brick pictured above is NOT THE ACTUAL BRICK INVOLVED IN THIS STRANGE INCIDENT. Instead, this brick came from the burned down "thug store" at Emerson and Lowry, click here for previous coverage. Now it's my souvenir brick and I've added it to my collection of bricks documenting the steady and amazing changes in our neighborhood, click here for an example. 

With THAT cleared up...

An alert and helpful Johnny Northside reader posted information from the Ramsey County Jail Roster, linking the info with this article from the Star Tribune East Metro section, click here.

Davina Rulford, 22, stands accused of assaulting a 57-year-old man with Parkinson's disease. The man tells one story and the convicted prostitute tells another about what they were doing in an alley. Truth may be somewhere in the middle but the dude has a concussion. He says it's from A BRICK and she says he "tripped over his own cane" while running away. The prosecutor is charging the incident based on his version of events, at least as far as the "brick applied firmly to the head" allegation is concerned.

The incident happened near a nasty little SuperAmerica store on the Lexington Parkway near I-94. I used to live in the area and, unfortunately, I know the gas station well. It's an embarrassment to the SuperAmerica chain, if you ask me. I have called the SuperAmerica chain on at least one occasion and told them so.

Despite the fact she was in St. Paul during the incident, Davina Rulford lists a North Minneapolis address on the Ramsey County Jail Roster of...

This much I understand: Jamica Holden is not the mother of Stephon Terrell Shannon, even though he referred to her that way during questioning by police. (See previous article about "den mother" Jamica Holden's troubling background)

The biological mother of Stephon Shannon is a woman named Lavina Nicole Shannon, age 34. Click here for a Pioneer Press article that covers a lot of ground when it comes to the family tree of Stephon Shannon. Here is a mugshot of Lavina Shannon found online. 

I'm not going to be coy about what I'm trying to accomplish, here.

What Happens To The Fourth Of July Mess In North Minneapolis? See Picture, Below...

Contributed photo, blog post by John Hoff


After setting off numerous pyrotechnics in a large, open area near a school (which is pretty much tolerated by the police on the Fourth of July, and we're all grateful for the slack) what does a good citizen do? Cleans up his or her mess, right?

What does a bad citizen do? Leaves the mess for somebody else to clean up.

What does a citizen do if they're not really very good, but not all that bad, either?

Stacks the mess up neatly and leaves it by a small tree for somebody else to clean up.

Behold, the march toward civilized behavior in North Minneapolis, pictured above on the bleary-eyed day after the Fourth of July.

Really, this is so much better than "let's see if we can set the tree on fire."

Derrick Deangelo Catchings, Charged In Murder Of Rayjon Gomez, Also Alleged To Be Involved In Spring Lake Park Motel Shooting...

Mug shot, therefore public domain, blog post by John Hoff

Derrick Deangelo Catchings, age 16, has been certified to stand trial as an adult in the murder of 13-year-old Rayjon Gomez. This blog previously reported on the grand jury indictment, which contained some nuggets of information but not the name of the accused. But with Catchings now certified to stand trial as an adult, his name has been released to media, including Johnny Northside Dot Com. The mainstream media have already barfed up the press release for the consumption of the public. It is up to this blog to dig deeper.

Off With Their Heads

The timing of this announcement by the Hennepin County Prosecutor shows exquisite political instincts. Shock and outrage is at an all-time-high immediately following the murder of Nizzel George, age 5, innocently sleeping on his grandmother's "big green couch."

So certifying 16-year-old Derrick D. Catchings (who was 15 at the time of the Gomez murder) to stand trial in the killing of a 13-year-old wannabe gang member might not have been a popular move prior to June 26. But the death of Nizzel George changes the political climate.

Charge them! the voting demographic cries. Get the gun-toting baby killers off the streets FOREVER, even if they are little more than children themselves. This blog agrees with these sentiments, but it would be more cost-effective to applaud social workers removing children from dysfunctional homes rather than prosecutors cleaning up legal details after children are dead and buried.

A Sibling Crime Spree By Catchings And Brother Henderson (Allegedly)

Within a short time after Catchings' name was released, my ever-vigilant reader base began digging up info and posting it in comments. Turns out Catchings and his (reported) brother, Pierre Tyshaun Henderson, were involved (reportedly) in a vicious and violent incident in a hotel room in Spring Lake Park, click here.

The incident happened in August of 2011 and resulted in...

Background On Jamica "The Driver" Holden, "Den Mother" Of Alleged Baby Killer Stephon Shannon, Age 17, And Ideas About How To Stop The Bullets...

Photo from Facebook profile of Nitelen Jackson, photo is entitled "RIP Skitz," used under First Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism

(This post has been corrected. Jamica Holden is not the mother of Stephon Shannon. Rather, he was a young man allowed to hang around her house, therefore she was like his "den mother." The criminal complaint quotes Shannon calling the woman his "mother" but digging by mainstream media has revealed this statement to be a lie)  

(Additional correction, August 9, 2014. The sentence above said "allowed to hang around "his" house." It should say "her house. Correction is being made today and noted)  


Dysfunction Piled On Dysfunction

Nizzel George was probably too young and innocent to be aware of it, but his world was a human Dagwood sandwich of multi-layered dysfunction. His grandmother and father both had run-ins with the law, as documented by mainstream media, click here. Some of his other relatives have criminal records, too, but mainstream media probably won't bother writing about that and I haven't gotten to it quite yet.

Quite YET.

And then, on the other side, there is accused shooter Stephon Shannon. Again, there is ugly history and dysfunction. Stephon was part of a group of kids that "hung out" at the home of Jamica Holden, who was a witness in a trial over a notorious murder incident that happened in Robbinsdale. Click here for the article, which I first became aware of from an anonymous commenter to this blog, and thank you for that.

Think of it like the cub scouts, only it's the hood scouts. Jamica was like the "den mother."

JNS BLOG EDITORIAL: Mainstream Media Have Ripped Off The Johnny Northside Playbook, But They Haven't Gone Far Enough In The Aftermath Of Nizzel George Murder...

Stock photo, Lisa Marie Presley's swingset at Graceland, blog post by John Hoff

I haven't written anything about the tragic Nizzel George murder until now, because there hasn't been an opportunity until now for this blog to fulfill its usual role.

Consider: Usually, after yet another North Minneapolis murder, this blog digs up information about the criminal backgrounds of the victim's family and, in the case of an adult, the victim himself. This happens as quickly as it can reasonably be done, as soon as names are available, to have the maximum impact on public discourse.

That wasn't necessary this time around. The mainstream media did what this blog usually does. Take, for example, the coverage of...
