Kevin Maurice Braziel, West Broadway Homicide Victim Who Lingered Two Weeks At Death's Door, Had Extensive Criminal Record And Documented His Thug Life On Facebook...

Facebook photo used under First Amendment Fair Comment
and Criticism, blog post by John Hoff

Kevin M. Braziel, whose name was not revealed in the mass media until after he died some two weeks after being shot on West Broadway near Olympic Cafe Plus, had an extensive criminal record. He was also a frequent user of Facebook and documented his life online, though probably not with the intention of providing an object lesson in what life-headed-for-prison-or-the-grave looks like.

That is, however, how things turned out...

First, in regard to Braziel's criminal record, here is what MNCIS shows in the State of Minnesota for criminal charges:

The Tale Of The Legal Red Tape 

27-CR-09-61276 BRAZIEL, KEVIN MAURICE 08/10/1991 12/15/2009 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Downtown Mabley, Daniel H. Crim/Traf Mandatory Under Court Jurisdiction Aggravated Robbery First Degree Assault in the Second Degree

The assault charge dismissed but he pled to Aggravated First Degree Robbery. Sentenced to prison for 36 months with credit for 121 days. See, I think if he'd just been in jail longer during his first brush with the law, the lesson may have gone deeper.

Kevin died owing $128 to the courts over this matter. Interestingly, however, his voting rights had been restored.

27-CR-12-16897 111228365 BRAZIEL, KEVIN MAURICE 08/10/1991 05/30/2012 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Downtown Crim/Traf Mandatory Under Court Jurisdiction Traffic Regulation - Alter or Make Fictitious Insurance ID Card

Pled guilty. He was still on probation over this when he died.

27-CR-13-6390 BRAZIEL, KEVIN MAURICE 08/10/1991 02/28/2013 Hennepin Criminal/Traffic/Petty Downtown Crim/Traf Mandatory Under Court Jurisdiction TRAFFIC-DRIVERS LICENSE-DRIVING AFTER REVOCATION DRUGS - POSSESS OVER 1.4 GRAMS MARIJUANA IN MOTOR VEHICLE

Pled guilty on the traffic matter and the drug charge was dismissed. Looks like he got "STS" (Sentence to Service) and was on probation. Died owing $128 on this charge. I double checked to make sure this was accurate, since he owed exactly the same amount on ANOTHER charge. Did I make a mistake and click on the wrong charge?

Nope. Looks like he owed the same exact amount on both charges. One of life's little coincidences. It is probably NOT a coincidence, however, that there's another Kevin Braziel who was born in 1974 and has lived in Bloomington and New Hope. The OTHER Kevin Braziel has only minor convictions in Minnesota for driving under the influence and speeding.

A Thug Life Documented On Facebook

Kevin's middle name was actually "Maurice" but on Facebook he was Kevin Soicyjakkboy (So Icy Jack Boy) Braziel. His last Facebook posting was June 21, when he posed with an Audi A8 while "flipping the bird" to the camera.


The car was apparently his, and not just a vehicle he was posing in front of. The license plate is not completely visible in this photo but the last letters are "HHN," leading me to believe it is a personalized plate.

A photo bragging about possession of the A8 took place on June 19. Note there is some kind of sign on a tree. Is that a memorial of some kind?


There is another photo taken in March of a vehicle which appears to be a Benz. The two vehicles are similar but close examination reveals this car, below, to be a different vehicle, a Mercedes-Benz. In a conversation about the photo, Braziel claims he "picked up" the vehicle "last month."


There is a duplex visible in the background with the numbers "1015 and 1017." I do not have further info at this time.

There was a photo taken in June with Kevin posing next to a young boy, who appears to be between 6 and 8. The photo appears to be at Mall of America. The photo was reproduced on the Facebook profile of a friend of Kevin. That friend described Kevin as the "uncle" of the child.

JNS blog is not reposting the photo due to the presence of an innocent minor. 

Here's another photo, taken in May, of the oh-so-charming Mr. Braziel flipping the bird. One seldom thinks of one's final legacy when posting stupid crap on Facebook, does one? 


That same month, Kevin took pictures of an all-red outfit. 



Red and blue are notoriously known to be gang colors in North Minneapolis. Indeed, most responsible parents in North Minneapolis won't allow their children to wear red or blue due to the possibility of their child being mistaken for a gang member. 

One commenter on the photo (whose Facebook profile is also full of images of the "thug life") commented as follows on the red clothing:

"OK I see u true down"

To which Braziel replied: 

"#######TrUUUU"

Note that in a photo I took of the shooting scene, two individuals can be seen wearing red. 



In March (it seems to have been a very active time for Kevin on Facebook) he posted a blurry picture of a wad of money and the following comment:

#GOT DAT $ MONEY FLIPPING LIKE A CARTWHEEL
BITCH TELL ME HOW DAT FOREIGN CAR FEEL

To which JNS blog replies: What are you feeling NOW, Kevin? And what were you feeling those last two weeks in the hospital? 

Braziel also posted a photo of the INTERIOR of a vehicle. Note the pack of Newports. 


I tell you, for those who just CANNOT STAND annoying "new car smell," nothing takes care of the problem quicker than a cheap pack of Newports.

There are numerous pictures of other cars on his Facebook profile, as well, but these appear to have been cars Kevin liked, not cars he owned. 

Here is one of Kevin looking pensive, perhaps contemplating the short life and likely end of a North Minneapolis thug.


In the photo above, a neck tattoo is just barely visible. It seems Kevin got the tattoo in September of 2012, when he posted pictures of his new "ink."



I'm not clear on what the tattoo says. "Yolo?" What does THAT mean? Apparently, it is slang for "You Only Live Once" and therefore a sort of text-talk slogan of hedonism, click here and here. A funny musical commentary on YOLO can be found here. 

Here is a photo of Kevin with his "grill." This was taken in August of 2102.



Here's the inevitable connection to Chicago, which can be found on the Facebook profile of virtually every thug who dies in North Minneapolis.



What actual connections Braziel may have had to Chicago are unknown. This photo may have simply been a style statement. He does not claim to be from Chicago on Facebook and, in fact, claims Minneapolis as his "hometown." But, inevitably, one finds (at the very least) a "shout out" to Chicago on the profiles of dead North Minneapolis thugs.

A Tangential Story About "Chicago Cake"

Which reminds me of a story which is connected only tenuously to the subject at hand. On June 22, I went to a pawn shop in St. Paul to obtain a cheap used chainsaw to saw up the tree which fell in my front yard, a feat that took about FOUR DAYS. While in the pawn shop, I needed to use the bathroom so (since there's no bathrooms for customers in pawn shops, EVER, in my considerable experience) I went to an Arab-owned soul food and fried chicken place across the street.

Like a good citizen, I made a minor purchase after using their bathroom, which was FOR CUSTOMER USE ONLY. Looking at the dessert rack, I noticed they were selling "Chicago Cake."

Which cake, I asked, was the Chicago Cake?

The man pointed to some cake. It wasn't the cake I figured. I told him I would have thought it was the cake with the strawberry syrup on the top, because it looks like a BULLET WOUND. I asked him, really, does anything good come from Chicago?

Perhaps, I suggested, he should sell MINNEAPOLIS Cake. That is the kind of cake I would like to purchase. The owner of the shop smiled a forced little grimace of politeness as I spun on my heel and walked out of the store, "good citizen" beverage purchase in my hand.

A Lingering, Horrible End

Numerous friends of Kevin Braziel have reproduced his Facebook photos on the profiles in tribute and, also, there are t-shirts being produced which have likenesses taken directly from Kevin's facebook profile. Already, this thug is being celebrated like he is a martyr.

A martyr for what? For bad lifestyle choices?

Braziel took two weeks to die. In that time, was he conscious? Did he feel pain? Did he try to pray to his Maker for forgiveness for a lifestyle of crime and drug use? Or did he only wish vengeance upon his enemies?

The killer or killers of Kevin Braziel are still at large. Somebody knows who they are. If that "somebody" will comment upon this blog, I am sure the information will make its way to the police. I have made it known many a time that I am not the NSA, and I have no technical capacity to determine the identities of commenters.

If you want to drop a dime, well, insert coin below.

Wow... for one he never killed anybody. He's human just like the rest of us. He had a family that lives him, and a cold that needs him. Since when does wearing a specific color make you gang affiliated? That's a reusable assumption to make. He wasn't a thug, he made bad choices don't we all? He didn't have anyone to tell him that's not the way to go. Oh and he wasn't a northsider just thought I should correct some of your numerous "facts" but the majority of them are gravely incorrect and show you know very little about him. The ignorance and stupidity displayed in these comments is ridiculous.

Johnny Northside! said...

No, let me correct YOU.

The deliberate symbolism of the choice of colors is obvious, even to the colorblind.

And no, we don't all make bad lifestyle choices. At least not on the scale of "Cash Money Jakk Boi" or whatever the hell he called himself on Facebook.

And, lastly, learn to spell.

The funeral just went down Nicollet. There was horse and carriage with his coffin for all to see, as if he was some sort of dignitary. Ridiculous. And everyone had those t-shirts with him being a thug flipping the bird. Seriously? Proud of this?

if you knew about him you would know he isn't in a gang and like I said he had a family and a kid on the way. so sore some damn respect, I know your bitch ass wasn't always an angel or innocent and he had robbed anybody since he caught the robbery charge. do you clearly don't know shit and he has no ties to Chicago, he just likes the bulls!! I'm using my Swype and I do know how to spell

Johnny Northside! said...

You might want to learn to properly capitalize, too, but kudos to you for using something that helps you spell. It would be really refreshing to see "thug apologists" on these comment threads who have a desire to spell correctly.

So...

When you say he "had robbed anybody" was that a Freudian slip or a typo?

And by the way, your "Swype" isn't going to catch a mistake like that.

Try a little proofreading, too.

To those that commented about Kevin Braziel, u need to not point your fingers at someone you do not know. You have no idea as to who or what he was. As I last check none of you are God so who are you to judge. Everyone has made mistakes in their lives, Kevin included. You don't know what he was doing with his life before he was killed. You all are looking at his past not what he was doing before he got shot. Next you talk about the pictures that he posted on his Facebook. What is your point. We all have done things when we were young. He was not a thug. He was a human being just like the rest of us. He just was at the wrong place at the wrong time. And to your answer about the horse carriage, it is true. He was. Before you write about how he was a thug and everything give the family a chance to grieve. I know when you all past you would want the same thing. So try showing some damn respect.

It wasn't a sarcastic comment. I was here, it went down Nicollet and 1st Ave in front of my house. a house, carriage, with he coffin. Why would I make that up? Many people were there, they can confirm, there was a procession and cars and people walking followed. True.

And how is it honoring this kid to wear t-shirts with him acting like that? Glorifying violence, and he is now dead.

Anonymous said...

This crap is so disrespectful .....so he served time as a child ..so what. He was loved. He had nice cars ..so what. He was loved. He had pictures flipping the bird..so what . Flipping the bird is not a crime if it was we all have broken the law. It is a common way to take pictures in his age group... It means nothing. Bottom line is this is none of your business. His family and friends are hurting...grieving and don't need your opinions on what you think you know. Only God has the right to judge.....so you and the other fucktards find yourself a life. It was ignorant to even post anything about a youngman that is no longer here. Do you enjoy causing pain to his family by posting this bullshit? Does it make you a better person? You will have to face judgment one day yourself. You better hope it's Gods justice and not street justice!! In the mean time FUCK OFF.

They weren't glorifying violence. They did it out of the love they had and still have for him. Like stated before he hadn't been involved in any sort of a robbery or anything robbery related since he went to jail on that robbery charge back in 2009. Again your knowledge of him is non-existent, you know nothing of what kind of person he was. The worst thing he did after getting out of jail was get stopped for traffic related violations. He was a son, a friend, a fiance and soon to be father who was innocently killed, he had no ties or relations to the tragic shooting that took his life. Who are any of you to judge him in the first place? Are any of you Jesus or God? No!!!! So just like him you all will have to stand in front of God on judgement day and trust me God will question you as to why you attempted to pass judgment on Kevin. Show some respect and let me and his family mourn his death.

"He made wrong choices" I am so sick of hearing that. When I was 8 or 9 years old I was in a Snyder's drug store downtown and I picked up a candy bar I wanted my mom to buy. She didn't see it in my hand and we walked out of the store. Even at that young age I knew I did something wrong and my mom took be back and she paid for that candy bar. I too made bade choices, but I am not curently wanted for murder. My parents taught me values; right from wrong. How many of these urban thugs/punks can say the same????

Really? He wasn't in any gang beef. If you knew so much you would attempt to read the police report, in which it states he was INNOCENT. I know Kevin pretty damn well and basically everything he's involved in. He tells me everything and let me just say gang violence and beef was never in anything he did. Kevin didn't have beef with anyone. His main focus was being able to take care of his child which he now don't be able to do because of the dumb ass who shot an innocent person. Everything you're saying about Kevin is how you should be describing the shooter because he's the one who bought violence to your precious neighborhood. He started shooting on a busy street, do you realize how many other innocent people could of died? Do you know where the rest of those bullets went? We do and people that were in that establishment should be lucky. You have nothing better to do than judge others for the short comings and mistakes they've made in life. Why is that sir? Is it because in fact your running from your own short comings and mistakes? Oh and for the last damn time, HE WAS NOT A NORTHSIDER!!!! He lived over south. Get your facts in order before attempting to talk shit

Anonymous said...

So you never made any bad choices after that ? I'm pretty sure that would be a lie. Oh and whowas wanted for murder? Not Kevin, he never killed anybody. The worse thing he did was what he went to jail for at 18. Again so many of you want to sit on here and talk and think your staying facts when you know nothing about him!!!

He wasn't a wanted man, he never killed anyone, he wasn't thug going around with no regards for the children or people that were outside that day on 21st and Broadway. The establishment he almost bled out in front of he had just left from in there talking to the owner whom he knew before the gun fire started and he was shot. He was a grandson, a son, a boyfriend, a father and a friend just like some of you writing on here judging him. By you paying judgement it doesn't make you any better, it makes you look just as foolish as the next person

Mr.Northside I applaud you for having a hobby but I feel you took it a little far this time. There are numerous people trying to attest that he was not this thug that you are portraying him to be. Growing up in South and North Minneapolis I have witnessed people around me die due to gun violence. Most were not productive members of society and family would still say how good a boy or man their relative was. Since you have been blogging there have been over 150 homocides in MPLS and I must ask you. Out of all said homocides that have occured have you ever seen so many people attest to ones character? I feel you should not judge so quickly and is a bad quality of yours. I also must say I hope you have a conceal and carry permit and carry
daily because I have heard your name on facebook more then once and not in praise. I also would like to add I am a 20 year old hispanic male with ties to the streets and would like to ask if you could tell by my thug english. Have a good day sir.

Kayla Davis said...

Thank you

Johnny Northside! said...

People attesting to his CHARACTER, you say? And I should think he had good character because of all the comments?

He was apparently a rather POPULAR thug. But his thuggery is apparent from his criminal record, his Facebook postings, and the way he died. His funeral was also a spectacular statement of the thug lifestyle. The shirts with photos of him "flipping the bird" tell us plenty.

Somebody has said he "cleaned houses" to make all that money. I have asked where? For whom? I have no answer.

This blog is the voice of decent, law abiding people on the Northside and I will not stand silent while people try to ELEVATE this no-account thug into a martyr and a hero.

He lived by the sword. He died that way. This is how thugs die.

Anonymous said...

Bravo,Johnny, well put. A thug is still considered an honorable citizen, I guess, if they haven't killed somebody and that is horribly debatable unless you are a thug yourself and then it is "street cred".
This is just another example of enabling behavior based in their personal self-bias which generally means they are a blaming and finger pointing bunch who like to put their business in the streets even if it means showing an "honorable man" telling everybody "fuck you" on a t-shirt. That shows total class and tells you the whole, and all you need to know, moral of the story.

I come to this blog a couple of times a month and from this point on, I will never waste my time reading the racial non-sense that Johnny participates in and allows. I once believed Johnny had good intentions to make everyone aware of "the happenings in north Minneapolis". I now realize Johnny is nothing more than a racist who celebrated Zimmerman's win, a racist who will never understand the black culture, nor give credit to anyone who dies from gunfire. Johnny will never allow himself to give credit to anyone for any of the "right" they may have done in their life, even if it outweighs the "wrongs" they have done. The even sadder part is the majority of his readers and followers are black people. I work with several “white” people who reside in north Minneapolis, all of whom had never heard of Johnny until I asked. The black race has been beyond repair for many generations and Johnny celebrates this. Let Johnny and his supporter’s blog to each other. If it’s not negativity towards the black race, Johnny won’t be blogging about it. It’s a waste of all of our time to continue to allow Johnny degrade the black race. We got enough on our plates; it’s called being black and survival in AMERICA. Something Johnny will NEVER get to experience nor understand.

kayla, try actually reading the fucking bible instead of using it to make excuses for your low life kin and you'll discover that your buddy jesus believed that LIARS go to hell.
Anon 1:57 needs to understand that it's black males killing each other 93% of the time so you should be warning yourselves about yourselves and keeping your racist comments about whites to yourselves.
Mr. Zimmerman checked all boxes HISPANIC when asked to identify his racial ethnicity.
The fact of the matter is that Hispanics are killing blacks in record numbers in Los Angeles and blacks don't want to fuck around with the Mexican Mafia nor Surenos 13 so they will continue to blame white people for their everlasting convenience. That is the truth put out for all of you, other than white, racist's.

See MN Supreme Court opinion in State v. Reginald Lee Gail at http://caselaw.findlaw.com/mn-supreme-court/1009449.html

Just wondering. Given other comments about Braziel's mother, I wonder if the father was also a career criminal. This appears on its face like another one of those families with North Minneapolis ties in which crime is the career of choice.

you admitted yourself that you are lazy when it comes to research so try again, my friend, because it is quite easy to find.

you are bad at trying to play both sides of the fence;
start with the Huffington Post... and any other source of left wing reality or:) LAW ENFORCEMENT STATS.
You are still not proving that you are rejecting any racist comments...
and I believe you are just citing YOUR ASS and making it up to counter your own RACIST harassment of Black people. Fiction.
Reality isn't the racism here, dude, you are.
93% is a number you may start with and it is the percentage of black males killed by other black males.
Won't hold my breath for you either since the irony is that you have no black acquaintances who would give you the true time of day and it seems white people can see right through you.

Yea, speaking of no research.. if you researched at all you would know that his name was Jerry Haaf. Busted.

wow... you all are aware of the fact not all African Americans aren't the same right? Also it's not a sailor's our an act I'm sorry that me being educated ant stating facts about my " boy" as you stated made me a phony hoe. But hey I've been called worse so if that's what you want to think be my guest. Again I'm just asking you let me and his family mourn. Because like I've stated its not helping the northside at all. People are still selling crack, cocaine, heroine and weed as we speak, it'd I'm correct which I know I am people were still getting shot and killed even after Kevin. So please explain to me what this blog is doing besides creating drama and hurting his family even more?

Johnny Northside! said...

I've explained it repeatedly. I'm sick of explaining it. But I will explain it yet again.

DECENT PEOPLE are not the ones dying in North Minneapolis. It's gang bangers, drug dealers, people with criminal records. Generally, DECENT PEOPLE are safe as long as they don't allow CRIMINAL SCUM into their life.

Our neighborhood needs DECENT PEOPLE to move here, and DECENT PEOPLE to remain and make the place better. So when somebody dies, it's vital to let DECENT PEOPLE know it's not a DECENT PERSON who was the victim. No, it's just the criminal class killing itself and we can all go on about our business.

There. Have I explained it sufficiently for the millionth freaking time?

Kayla Davis said...

Like I've explained repeatedly you blogging telling these "decent" people false facts about someone who was innocent and had no ties to the shooter the north side was messed up years before Kevin, it's going to be messed up years after Kevin and your blogs are NOT going to clean up the northside. Innocent people are still going to get shot and killed, drugs are still going to be around and that's not going to change until you decide to do something that will actually clean it up. Whenever you get through saying all this shit about kevin and throwing dirt on his name people are hurting and a child is going to grow up without a father. Would you wish that pain on your worse enemy?

Johnny Northside! said...

I don't see where any "innocent" person was killed in this incident. We keep going round and round about this. You want to pretend his criminal record doesn't exist, that his Facebook postings don't show a thug reveling in his thug life, and that he was an "innocent bystander."

OK. So who was the shooter trying to hit? I doubt very much if it was somebody Kevin didn't KNOW.

Is there anybody talking to the police? I doubt it. Because it's DECENT PEOPLE who talk to the police and THUGS who shut their mouth and seek their own retribution.

And, clearly, I will keep doing the same thing I've been doing for half a decade. I will keep blogging. And if you don't think it helps, well, I can see by your comments you're not the people I'm trying to reach anyway.

Kayla Davis said...

Your right. I don't live on the broken northside so I'm not worried about whether or not it falls to shambles I actually like I'm a very decent quiet neighborhood over south where homicides that take place every few weeks to a month. Also yet again you know nothing of what your saying. People were talking and have been. Apparently you don't know too much about your precious northside. I'm sorry but there were decent people who witnessed the whole thing. I think your blogging goes deeper than attempting to save your neighborhood. I very this feeling that you secretly hope that all these " thugs" or what you really want to say African Americans would continue to kill each other off and then you're neighborhood will just consist of your " decent" people when you really want to say Caucasians. Again not all African Americans are the same. Your just a child hearted racist who sits behind a computer screen blogging and preaching let's change the northside, key the decent people take the neighborhood back and that's just saddening. Mr northside I hope that done day you stop lying to yourself and just admit how you truly feel

If he was a LEGEND why is he driving an old Benz... And why is he renting? Did he leave his family with a lump sum from his life insurance policy? Just saying... This is sad, but yes, I do believe he lived a life that in the end usually results in jail or death. I mean "cleaning house" he probably was and not the kind of cleaning like sweep n mop. Anyways prayers to this family. Hopefully his child will become something better, but first he has to be taught how to become something better. I trust his Mother will do that. Again nobody wants to hear of a family losing a member so my prayers go out.

I don't even know where you are getting this "all African Americans" stuff. I never brought up his race, that was you. And, clearly, I only hope people will behave better and STOP dying, not KEEP dying.

What you are saying doesn't even make sense in terms of numbers. Clearly, given all the crime in North Minneapolis, these thugs can't kill their way to a better neighborhood and the murders only make everything worse.

You have added nothing to the discussion by your false assumptions, your wild accusations, and (last but not least) your maddening inability to use the correct form of "your" versus "you're" within a sentence.

Kayla,

You state this blog doesn't serve the neighborhood, and that it will take other means to change the environment, yet you also admit you don't really care what happens here because in your neighborhood, homicides occur with less frequency.

Caring enough to learn what is happening is a necessary first step towards change, and this blog allows us who actually live in the neighborhood to communicate and figure out what the heck is going on, because God knows almost none of this information is available elsewhere. No one should have to worry about getting shot walking out of a restaurant in 2013. Children should not die sleeping on their couches in 2013.

As for judgement, I've read on so many of these postings lots of backlash against 'judging', lots of 'smh-ing', lots of 'RIP' and so on. There is a huge difference between criticizing a theological-based concept of judgement (basically calling out others for the sins you commit yourself) and asking for accountability through legal means. The people who care in NoMi are not committing these crimes, therefore they aren't being 'judgemental' in the Christian sense, they just want some decency and peace for everyone in the neighborhood. This isn't some deep-seeding, veiled attack from one race to another. As for the rest of the 'SMH-ers', as I like to call them, it's probably more a statement of 'I like NoMi crime-ridden because I'm a criminal myself'. This isn't normal behavior, and even living in a neighborhood where homicides happen only 'every few weeks to a month' isn't acceptable either.

Kayla Davis,

I hope you do well in school, have a great life and raise your child to be an upstanding citizen. Many of us have had student loans. No shame there. I must say, though, that I wonder why on earth a college student would own a Mercedes. Middle class people cannot even afford the maintenance on the vehicles with which Kevin posed: Mercedes, Audi, BMW. He also posed with a $300 Gucci belt. I doubt that I have spent or will spend $300 on all of the belts I've ever bought or will buy in my lifetime. $15 will get you a workable belt at Target. And I have a quite substantial net worth. To any young person who might be reading this, driving cars you can't afford doesn't make you look like you "made it". It just makes you look like an idiot, which you are if you spend $300 on a belt or more than your annual income on a car.

Johnny Northside! said...

And, I might add, a dollar will get you the same belt, nicely worn in, at the Salvation Army.

Kayla Davis said...

before questioning how I can afford a Benz you might want to ask how much it cost? did one of her parents hand it down to her? clearly it's used so it obviously didn't cost too much. also as far as my schooling my parents are vets, it's called I us their g.I Bill and I don't have any loans. along with their g.I every year I am awarded scholarships through my church for school. also I've been managing the maintenance of my Benz just fine, far too many people worry about things that shouldn't be any of their concern. but if you must know my car was only 3700 which wasn't too much money for a car

Anonymous said...

Kayla, you are a fucking liar and you can't use your parents G. I. Bill. Your grammar is atrocious considering that you say you are "attending" school.
Every year you are awarded scholarships? Is it the "scholarships" or your PARENTS military benefits?(not)! Sounds to me the only way you are "attending" school is if it is a requirement to collect some form of assistance. When you "benz" over I may believe your story.

Did you not see that I'm rewarded a scholarship through my church? Apparently you did not. Last I checked I was able to receive both which I have, I have no reason to lie about my education. Clearly I go to North Central University, formerly named North Central Bible College. Oh...I don't get any assistance or benefits from the state like welfare or such.

Do you think none of this crime would take place had the majority of African Americans been aborted? That shows how narrow minded you are. Crime would still be happening, people would still be murdered, drugs would still be sold and tax dollars would still be wasted on welfare because it would be used up by other races. The crazy thing is people feel African Americans are just trash but there is worthless trash in every race including Caucasians. How many African Americans do you see in the news for killing their children? Um... barely none yet a shit load of white people ate in the news daily for killing their kids

Johnny Northside! said...

There are indeed bad people in every race who do bad things and, now that you mention it, I don't see a lot of media coverage about black people killing their own kids.

HOWEVER, that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. It may be a matter of selection by the mainstream media of what stories will prove popular with the audience. In North Minneapolis, almost every WEEK I see some story that makes me think, "Why isn't the national media covering this?"

Take, for example, the little boy who was found hung on the clothesline. What was happening THERE? What was up with his little playmates? Did they do something or was the whole thing covered up?

You can't judge by what you see in media stories what is the norm. You'd have to, for example, look at data about people who kill their children and have data that was broken down by race.

Death by neglect and various forms of negligent parenting (letting kids run wild in the streets until they die in gang violence) is another form of killing your children.

To Kayla Davis,

I never talked about you or mentioned you in the original blog post. I did, of course, approve comments as I often approve comments. As far as I can tell, the first comment about you was a cryptic remark as follows:

Too late Jonathan. Immediate family, friends and his pregnant girlfriend have read this article

As far as I can tell, you came here and identified YOURSELF and brought YOURSELF into it. Unless your name was mentioned in another comment in another blog posting about this same topic (the death of Kevin Braziel) but, even then, I didn't bring you up. I didn't bring you into it.

Johnny Northside! said...

To emphasize...

You brought YOURSELF into the drama.

Oops.

That would then make it baby mama drama, wouldn't it?

Just wait until I connect this blog to Don Samuels run for mayor. Samuels testified for John Hoff at his "blogger trial of the century" and supports what John Hoff does. Just wait until we start to distribute flyers showing how Samuels supports Hoff's harassment of black folk and posting their arrest records so they can't get jobs or housing.
John Hoff, the racist blogger arm-in-arm with Don Samuels.
Keep up the comments people, they will look good an the dump Samuels brochures.
Yep, good old Don can thank his buddy Johnny Northside for all the good publicity. <---sarcasm font

PS The first amendment allows me to do this and use JNS's photos too. Just like he uses other folks photos in his blog.

Hi Don,(Allen, you know, 12:56 a.m) how the hell are you? Did you leave the V.F.W. early tonight?
Find anyone to swindle or beat down? I doubt Samuels is winning so don't give yourself too much credit.. and your shoes need to be shined.

Mr Northside...I wasn't saying you brought me into. I wasn't even referring to you. I was referring to the anonymous posters talking down on an innocent unborn child and belittling my character and me when they know nothing about me. Baby mama drama? No,. that consist of other bs.

Johnny Northside! said...

We are in agreement. I didn't bring you into it.

Though I disagree with what I see to be some of your lifestyle choices, I am sorry this had happened to you. It's not going to keep me from writing a story, because when people are murdered in the street society needs to dig into the sordid details in order to fix itself.

But I'm sorry this happened to you and I hope your get through this mess and your child and his child have a good life.

I have submitted my comment 3 times now, so I'm pretty sure it's not in your spam filter. You just can't accept a truthful comment.
Or are you trying to trace my IP?
Don't bother, I'm in Germany at the moment.

Johnny Northside! said...

What difficulty you are having, sorry. But when you submit the same comment over and over, the blogspot filtering starts to think the comment is spam and rejects it.

You, sir are fill of shit. I submitted three comments, you only approved two of them. I know you received it, and refuse to publish the thrid because it speaks the truth about your character, and that you are morally bankrupt.

Reading this blog hmm the only conclusion I came up with is that you're a very lazy computer courage having individual.... Really who sits on a computer and search real hard to find nothing about a person that's not living (nothing) meaning we already seen those pics sorry for you it took for him to die to see them and make up your assumptions about them.... Not to mention how you know so damn much and you stay asking questions I bet yo lame ass would love to see The pics you must already got a story for the too... I must say what pissed me off the most is yo dumb ass steady going back n forth with his loved ones on some negative shit I've heard of you now I see why I've heard nothing nice wit ya nosey ass.. Post on here when you actually COME to the Northside To help change it since that's what call yourself doing.
