Arnong Rajvong, Northside Shooting Victim, Had Forgery Arrest, Probation Violation Arrest, And A Theft Conviction...

Minneapolis, blog post by John Hoff

Before writing this article, I found it prudent to wait for 100 percent confirmation that Arnong Rajvong, a Northside shooting victim, was one and the same with Arnong Rajvong, convicted thief. Confirmation came in the form of an article published by Channel 5 which featured a contributed photo of Rajvong. 

This photo allowed me to match Rajvong's face with her mug shots and then determine the MNCIS record was almost certainly the same woman.

In fact, if you search "Arnong Rajvong" on Google, two things pop up:

Articles about her death and her mug shots from two arrests.

In 2009, according to MNCIS, Rajvong was convicted of...

...property theft. Her lawyer was Adam Chay Yang. He was retained, not a public pretender. I mean "defender."

Despite the efforts of her attorney, Rajvong was convicted of theft and fined. It appears to me the total fine consisted of $78 but (if I read this correctly) Rajvong had fronted $200. Interestingly, the $200 appears with the notation "credit for time served."

Gotta love that quirky MNCIS system.

The notation "credit waived" also appears.

I've never seen THAT before. Often criminals die owing money. In this case, (and I've ONLY seen it in this case) Rajvong apparently gave the system more than she owed or, possibly, received a refund. It really depends upon who was "waiving" the credit and MNCIS notations aren't always crystal clear.

A mug shot from 2009 shows a younger and thinner Arnong Rajvong. That photo appears on Busted Mug Shots Dot Com, click here. 

There was apparently another arrest in 2012, and details of this one are quite revealing. Though I see no record of the arrest in MNCIS, Busted Mugshots Dot Com is showing Rajvong's photo as well as information on an arrest that happened January 16, 2012, in Minneapolis. Here were the charges at that time, according to Busted Mugshots:


Alleged Violations:
AGGRAVATED FORGERY-LEGAL RIGHTS CREATED/TERMINATED- FE {609.625.1(1)}
IDENTITY THEFT-TRANSFERS/POSSESSES/USES IDENTITY OF OTHER PERSON- FE {609.527.2}
THEFT-TAKE/USE/TRANSFER MOVABLE PROP-NO CONSENT- FE {609.52.2(1)}
DRUGS-5TH DEGREE-POSSESS SCHEDULE 1-2-3-4-NOT SMALL AMOUNT MARIJUANA- FE {152.025.2(A)(1)}


A photo on Mugshots Dot Com, click here, shows a much more recent arrest on June 26 of this year. That was an arrest for a probation violation. THAT is interesting, because I can't find any record in MNCIS showing that Rajvong was on probation. However, the MNCIS system is very quirky and sometimes relatively new charges take a long time to appear. The arrest took place in Anoka County.

An article in the Star Tribune (and good luck reading it without an annoying pop up ad appearing, plus a tendency to revert back to the home page after you try to eliminate the pop up ad) says Rajvong was shot after leaving a bar with "her friends" instead of a man who had picked her up at the bar. The bar is described as "nearby" to 26th and Washington Ave. N.

The article also says Rajvong leaves behind a 7-year-old son.

There is no reasonable excuse for this kind of violence. However, the historical pattern of Northside shootings holds true, and decent people need to know the vast majority of homicide victims continue to be members of a criminal class preying on each other.

The victim in this case was no angel.

As usual.

Feel free to discuss this article at the vigil. Perhaps there could be a discussion about why Rajvong wasn't at home taking care of her 7-year-old son and soberly contemplating the terms of her probation rather than hanging out in a North Minneapolis bar with a strange guy who, it would appear, ultimately killed her.

But don't worry, friends of Rajvong. When this guy is arrested (and I hope he is) I will be doing a number on HIS criminal record, as well.

JNS blog gets the feeling more happened between Rajvong and her murderer than a casual bar pickup that went down in flames. Maybe somebody who knows something should tell the police rather than keeping it to themselves.

Another poor minority killed in North, why is this news? And, why should we care?

Who do you mean by "we" chump?
Are you making your broad , sweeping assumptions that I'm as racist as you?

Anonymous said...

That's very classy...talk about someone when their dead! Doesn't matter who she was and what she did...she's still a human being that got MURDERED! Have some compassion for her friends and families instead of shitting on her when she's dead.

Don't worry, there will be another one tomorrow if you missed the report on this one.

Why? Look at her RECORD. She shat upon all of us when she was alive. Hell if I won't report the relevant facts when she's dead.

How fucking hard is to just NOT BREAK THE LAW? Don't spend money you don't have. Don't drive without a license. Don't drive without insurance. Don't create false identities. Don't commit forgery. Don't commit fraud. Don't assault people. Don't leave your 7 year old home while you're meeting strange men in a bar in N Mpls.

Not that my race matters but I'm Caucasian and have known this family for MANY years. Although they have made poor choices, many of us have! Unfortunately minorities are extremely vulnerable and highly susceptible to having such atrocities exposed to the public eye. Not only are you a racist BIGOT you have NO respect for the dead and for the victim's FAMILY. You are a disgrace and I will be reporting this article to the appropriate figures!

Johnny Northside! said...

Yes, you get right on that and "report this article" to the First Amendment police. Be sure to mention the part about how every word is true.

Anna, you make me want to puke. I mean I could just puke reading your ignorant comment. JNS (johnny Northside) blogs about everyone and yes, even Caucasians! Wow!
You sound so stupid. I could just puke. I mean, after reading your comment, I could really puke.

What will your legacy be?

My sister Arnong was a great person. Made a few bad choices but who hasn't? We are all not perfect. My sister has a great heart. Very kind person. Loves to laugh. She brings joy to everyone around. Me and my family will miss her dearly!

Even Freedom of Speech has limitations, such limitations you are treading a fine line with. Don't you recall having to pay a fired community leader $60,000 for lost wages and emotional distress? Maybe this article will jog your memory. http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/117805398.html
I strongly suggest you start choosing your words wisely. I have forwarded this to the family of the victim.

Johnny Northside! said...

You are behind the times. Not only did I not have to pay Jerry Moore anything, but Jerry Moore now owes me more than $3,000 for my successful appeal. You really need to do your research better.

Like I do.

Forward the shit you dumb bitch or shut your fucking cum catcher! I'm sick of all of you law breaking assholes and excuse
mongers and you all deserve to go straight the fuck to hell and burn your sorry asses out of
existence. Jerry, pay the fuck up!!!! Anna, pull the dick out of your nasty mouth.

What a joke that these folks just won't own up to their shit without blaming whites. No matter what, it is never their fault and don't dare speak the truth to them because they ain't having it. Sickening copouts need to quit blaming others.

Anonymous said...

Lol yeah like Johnny does!Ive read a few of your blogs and Jns you do get facts wrong here and there not sayin purposely but just sayin.

Johnny Northside! said...

When factual errors come to my attention I make an effort to correct them, and I print a notice that a correction has been made. Only the other day I corrected a blog post to note the location of the Steele County Jail is in Owatonna, not Faribault.

The Star Tribune and other media entities ALSO make errors, and print corrections.

If you believe something is wrong, point it out to me and point out the reason you think it is wrong.

Those dumb asd quote on quote Facts have no relevance to the fact that she was murdered. I hope writing this article made you feel good about yourself. And I hope that when you die nobody even takes the time to shit on you like you feel so comfortable doing to everyone else. Such a fucking disgrace you are

Johnny Northside! said...

Do we know who killed her and why? If not, how do we know what facts were "relevant" to her death or why somebody was motivated to kill her?

Johnny, I would have a personal talk to you. Contact me at Vatsana.rajvong@yahoo.com :)
Piece of shit!

Johnny Northside! said...

If you want to contact me, my email appears at the top of the blog. I certainly won't be sending emails to addresses posted here, since I can never be sure who is doing the posting.

Johnny Northside! said...

Her "personal record," as you phrase it, by which you apparently mean her CRIMINAL record, is everybody's business. That's why it turns up in a PUBLIC (stomp stomp) records search.
