Extensive Criminal Record Of Reginald Antwine Haynes, A Northsider Dead In Mortimer's Bar Shooting...

Stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

Reginald Antwine Haynes didn't die in a shooting on the Northside, but he was a resident of the 1400 block of Dupont Ave. N. according to the Star Tribune. He died in a shooting at Mortimer's Bar in the usual pattern of argument resolved by gunfire, which is a frequent pattern of violence in our city.

What is that mommy's say to children throwing a tantrum? "Use your words?"

One television news station mentioned Haynes' extensive criminal record but wasn't really specific. This blog will be specific...

Johnny Northside Joins Wirth Cooperative Grocery, Here's Details Of How You Can, Too...

Photo, blog post by John Hoff

Visiting the Broadway Farmer's Market some months ago, I came upon a booth set up by the Wirth Cooperative Grocery or, I should say, by some of the folks who hope to BECOME a cooperative grocery by that name. The grocery is more of an idea than an entity right now, but it's an idea with the support of the Harrison Neighborhood Association and things are moving forward.

For one thing, they have SHIRTS. And I have one of them.

Right now, what's needed are enthusiastic people who are willing to stake $100 on their enthusiasm. If you'd like to be part of the co-op, send your check by October 30 to Wirth Co-op, c/o Harrison Neighborhood Association, 503 Irving Ave. N., Suite 100 Minneapolis, MN 55405.

Early Release Revoked For Jerome Lance Kingrussell, The "Imposter Foster" From Mortgage Fraud At 1564 Hillside Ave. N.

Minnesota DOC mugshots, therefore public domain, blog post
by John Hoff

Word comes from Melony Michaels, one of the victims of the mortgage fraud involving 1564 Hillside Ave. N., of a resolution to a story this blog reported October 17.

Jerome Lance Kingrussell, who was the "imposter John Foster" during the infamous and high profile mortgage fraud has had early release revoked and is now headed back to prison. A hearing was held yesterday which, ironically, the mortgage fraud victims were not allowed to attend. But the result of the hearing is Kingrussell is no longer a free man and has apparently AT LONG LAST used up his undeserved chances to avoid a prison sentence.

Right. I wouldn't bet the farm against the possibility of the prison system turning loose this "little fish" yet again.

Guns, Guns And More Guns In The Facebook Photo Albums Of Glenn D. Smith, a/k/a Chief Chuck So Iicey (sic) Smith, Accused Of Gang Related Alley Shooting Incident...

Facebook photo, used under First Amendment Fair Comment
and Criticism, and public safety exceptions, blog post by John

Glenn D. Smith, as I blogged previously, is accused of being involved in a shooting incident in the alley near 1826 Penn Ave. N. which shows every indication of being gang related. Nobody was killed in the incident though a 74-year-old male bystander was grazed in the face by a bullet. Smith is in jail on $200,000 bail, total, and charged with four weapons related felonies. There is videotape documenting at least part of the alley shooting incident so guess what? This guy is probably going away for a while.

Smith has documented his life prolifically on Facebook, where he has 1,651 followers. He has been on Facebook since 2010, so that would be since approximately the age 16 since his birthday is April 17, 1994 and he is currently just NINETEEN years old. (However, Smith has a "baby face" which makes him appear much younger)

It will take more than one blog post to reveal the trail of treasures Smith (a/k/a Chief Chuck So Iicey Smith, a/k/a Chief Chuck Got-Hoess Smith) has shared with the world. For the moment, I am ONLY going to comment upon the photos which explicitly include firearms, of which there are quite a few.

Let's start with the photo above. Look just above the left lower corner of the photo and you will see the tiny, pink shoe-shoe clad feet of a little girl...

Jamica "The Driver" Holden, Who Was "Den Mother" To Shooter Of Nizzel George, Incarcerated In Anoka County...

Anoka County Mug Shot, therefore public domain, blog
post by John Hoff

Jamica C. Holden, who played "den mother" to the gang-involved youth who included Stephon Shannon, one of the shooters of little Nizzel George, is sitting in jail in Anoka County right now. She's charged with:

Assault-2nd Degree-Dangerous Weapon- FE {609.222.1}
Domestic Assault-Misdemeanor-Intentionally Inflicts/Attempts to Inflict Bodily Harm on Another- MS {609.2242.1(2)}

Anonymous commenters tipped off this blogger and also say she tried to cut her boyfriend's face, but that's unconfirmed. Her bail is $30,000. She was arrested October 20, incarcerated October 21. Her mugshot appears to be evidence contrary to the old saying about blondes having more fun.

Glenn D. Smith, Allegedly Involved In A Back Alley Gang-Related Shooting That Grazed The Face Of A 74-Year-Old Bystander, Has Extensively Documented His Thug Life On Facebook As "Chief Chuck So Iicy (sic) Smith"

Glenn D. Smith is sitting in jail at the moment, charged in a back alley shooting in which a bullet grazed the face of a 74-year-old bystander near 1826 Penn Ave. N. Click here for the criminal complaint. The shooting happened on September 11.

It is alleged that Glenn Danen Smith, pictured above from Facebook where he is "Chief Chuck So Iicy Smith" was involved in the shooting. Police allege Smith and another young guy named Kevin Lamont Johnson were chasing two other young men through the alley, trying to shoot them, when the senior citizen was grazed in the face by one of their bullets.

Smith is now in the Hennepin County Jail on a total of $200,000 bail over four felony charges, all of which involve weapons. Smith came to the attention of this blog in April of last year because he was...

JNS Blog Talks About "Fading" Of Backyard Chicken Trend And Asserts Answer Lies In Whacking Off Their Little Heads And EATING THEIR DELICIOUS FLESH When They Stop Laying Eggs...

Stock photo, cooking Chicken at FOB Gardez, Afghanistan, blog post by John Hoff

Looking for blogworthy angles, I am always using Google to find recent articles mentioning "North Minneapolis." Sometimes I find out that fire has claimed a house on North Minneapolis Street in Wichita, Kansas, but usually I turn up useful news articles that inform me and help me dig up information to inform others.

On October 20, I turned up a news article about the urban "backyard chicken" trend and how the trend is fading and chickens are turning up at shelters, click here. 

Shelters. For chickens!!!!!

I live in North Minneapolis, but I grew up as rural as can be and let me tell you, SHELTERS for CHICKENS is about the dumbest thing I've ever heard, unless the shelter in question has a little figurine of Colonel Sanders on the pointy part of the roof...

Police Find Drug Scales, Stolen Firearm, And 338.15 Grams Of Marijuana At 3101 Queen Avenue North...

Police executed a felony arrest warrant on 3101 Queen Ave. N. and didn't find they guy they were looking for, but they allegedly found Drew Lathon and a whole lot of weed, as well as drug scales and a stolen Ruger .380 with extended magazine, determined to be stolen.

Click here for the criminal complaint.

The property at 3101 Queen Ave. N. is a rental owned by Jim F. Thomas of 855 Hallam Ave. N. in Mahtomedia, MN.

When the North Minneapolis tenants of absentee landlords are named in criminal complaints, expect the names and home addresses of their landlords to appear right here on Johnny Northside Dot Com. Don't like it? Pick better tenants and you won't see your name here OR your home address.

Why aren't these properties involved in drug sales subject to forfeiture actions? This blog would love to see a lot more of that. I think a lot of decent people who live on the Northside would be quite alright with that.

Oh. My. God.

Read the criminal complaint, click here. My headline will have to suffice. I don't even want to SUMMARIZE this stuff because it's so awful.

Michael Jeffrey Herron reportedly lives at 2651 Humboldt Ave. N., Apartment 2. The "master address" for this property is apparently 2649 Humboldt Ave. N., and it's a multi-family residential structure owned by Danmark Properties LLC, Inver Grove Heights.

The incident involved a neighbor on Humboldt Ave. N.

Sex Offender Sabrae Courtney Listed His Address As 3322 Fremont Ave. N., A Vacant Lot Owned By The City of Minneapolis...

Sabrae Courtney was convicted in 1995 of Third Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct and, as a result of "subsequent convictions and incarcerations," is required to register as a predatory offender until November 23, 2031, at which time it is possible he will have a ROBOT for a probation officer.

Even considering how long he's required to keep doing the task, Courtney has been doing a terrible job keeping himself registered. According to a recent criminal complaint, click here, Courtney recently registered his address as 3322 Fremont Ave. N., which is a vacant lot owned by the City of Minneapolis. 

Then Courtney didn't check in like he was supposed to...

On September 9, St. Paul resident Yia Her fled from State Troopers. In his flight, he hit a vehicle containing Brody Sotona and Connor Macklin. Click here for the criminal complaint against Her.

Sontona was killed. Macklin, who is the aquatics director at the North Minneapolis YMCA, is making a slow and difficult recovery, click here for STrib article. 

I was unaware of the North Minneapolis connection to this story until I caught the STrib article about Macklin's recovery. Some of Macklin's kids were involved in the famous "Hot Cheetos and Takis" song which "went viral" and was viewed all over the world. Macklin was one of the first to tell everybody he knew about the video, helping start what would become an avalanche of popularity.

The criminal complaint says Her was going 70 in a 55 mph zone when he blew past a State Trooper. A license plate check showed the owner of the vehicle to have a suspended license. The chase continued through downtown Minneapolis where...

JNS Blog Blocked By Minneapolis Public Schools Internet Server...

Contibuted photo, blog post by John Hoff

A regular reader emailed me the image above, showing that users of the Minneapolis Public Schools internet server are unable to access the Johnny Northside blog.

I don't know what to say about this except I assume my blog is blocked in a general way (i.e. all Blogspot sites are blocked along with social media like Facebook, common to some government internet servers) and not in a specific way, i.e. the Minneapolis Public School system doesn't want its minions reading how the Minneapolis Public School system was "shaken down" by Don Allen for $15,000, click here, and other stories.

JNS blog has sent an inquiry about the matter to a representative of the Minneapolis Public Schools.

In the meantime, it seems fair to say this kind of thing only makes my blog more controversial and, therefore, more popular.

More, Um, "Dope Fresh Tunes" From Nitelen Jackson, a/k/a "King Nite," Incarcerated Northside Wannabe Rapper...

Nitelen Jackson, who is currently incarcerated, is a Northside criminal whose use of social media is prolific and has been extensively documented by this blog. But even Johnny Northside wasn't aware of the full extent of Nitelen's social media usage until I stumbled upon some of his videos on YouTube in the course of researching his (reputed) sister, Exotica Taylor, love interest of another thug who busted a man's skull over a stolen gun. 

I already commented upon his misspelled song "Evervyday," but for readers who love this kind of glimpse into another world, here are a few more videos. The song above, entitled "So Sick," is a kind of anthem to...

While He Continues To Owe Me A Judgment Of $3,799.69, Jerry Moore Lives Large And Posts Pictures Of His Life On Facebook...

Photo from Facebook page of Jerry C. Moore, used under First 
Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism

Somebody in my social circle sent me a link to the Facebook profile of Jerry C. Moore, who appears to be one and the same with Jerry L. Moore. Just like the fraudsters who (along with Jerry) were involved in the mortgage fraud at 1564 Hillside Ave. N., Jerry finds it expedient to make adjustments to his name, in this case a new middle initial.

Jerry Moore sued me for defamation for saying he was "involved" with the mortgage fraud at 1564 Hillside Ave. N, with which he was involved. For a while, I owed Moore a $60,000 judgment. Then the State Court of Appeals reversed and it's Jerry who owes ME, to the tune of $3,799.69. I have been trying to find Jerry, trying to get my money, and I will be turning over internet rocks until I have my money. The latest rock I am looking under is the Facebook profile of Jerry "C" Moore.

That's "C" for "I C you, Jerry Moore."

Oh, and he likes the nickname "J Moe" on Facebook. You would think the former head of a Northside neighborhood association would be reluctant to identify with the nickname "Moe" and all the gang violence associations with "Moe" on the Northside but, well, those of us who knew Jerry well and saw through his smooth veneer always figured Jerry was down with the criminal element.

I can't see Jerry's Facebook profile from my own profile because he has me blocked, however...

The media all over our country and even talk show hosts have weighed in on the topic of "stowaway boy," the 9-year-old North Minneapolis child who managed to get aboard an airline and fly to Las Vegas. Click here for Star Tribune article. 

JNS blog has not made an effort to learn the names of the parents or even obtain a copy of the petition because when the mainstream media are chewing up a big story, it is my habit to wait until a unique blogging angle becomes apparent. I mean, I sort of thought the big media boys who were ALL OVER THE STORY would soon publish this info. I was wrong.

If a copy of the court petition comes into my hands, I would of course publish it verbatim, and probably within 5 minutes of becoming aware it's in my email inbox. (

It's public info. And it's the job of the media to make such relevant info accessible, not to sit on the info.

So why aren't the local media providing info to the public about this incident, such as the actual court petition which makes the names of the parents....

Jerome Lance Kingrussell, the  infamous"imposter foster" from the Larry Maxwell case, was already sitting in jail when this blogger learned of his "fugitive apprehend" status. As of this moment, the MN DOC website still erroneously shows Kingrussell as "fugitive apprehend" but a look at the jail roster confirms he is, in fact, jailed on a Department of Corrections hold and was picked up October 9.

I spoke to Melony Michaels, one of Kingrussell's victims from the mortgage fraud, who expressed how frustrating it was to have to "babysit the justice system" to make anything happen or even learn when criminals are released. Kingrusell was...

JNS Blog Working To Dig Up Current Status Of North Minneapolis Mortgage Fraudster Ed Boler...

Creative stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

A very interesting conversation is taking place behind the scenes about Ed Boler, a convicted mortgage fraudster who, along with Susan Newell, was tried for mortgage fraud and then RETRIED due to a hung jury. Prosecutor Brad Johnson, who also got a conviction in the Larry Maxwell mortgage fraud case, was sent in as the "clean up hitter" in the Boler/Newell case.

So what is going on with Boler these days? (I'll leave aside the question of what's going on with Susan Newell) A commenter to this blog asserted Boler has a new job involving property in another state, click here and read the comments.

That anonymous, ALL CAPS comment sent one of this blog's behind-the-scenes Santa's research helpers running to dig up information. Suffice to say I should have something interesting in the near future, but there DOES seem to be something to the rumors.

In the meantime, my researcher discovered an old link with the Boler and Newell criminal complaints was dead. Well, I can't have that. The historical record needs to be available for those who care to dig into that golden era of mortgage fraud which changed the face of North Minneapolis.

Here is the criminal compliant for Ed Boler, click here.

And here is the complaint for Susan Newell.

Warmed Over Vietnam Era Draft Dodging Felon Chuck Turchick Used The First Minute Of His Two Minutes Complaining About The Fact He Only Had Two Minutes, And Other Nuggets From The Police Conduct Oversight Commission As JNS Blog Talks Back To Star Tribune Reporter Matt McKinney...

Contributed image, blog post by John Hoff

Click here for the STrib article I am about to disassemble and try to put back together CORRECTLY.

SOMETIMES Star Tribune Matt McKinney writes a halfway decent article, especially when the article has a co-author.

But McKinney has a noticeable tendency to be off-kilter, like the time when sex offender Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer was trying to have a frivolous lawsuit served in city council chambers and all McKinney could concentrate upon was the fact Johnny Northside (moi!) had allegedly been aided in slipping out of city council chambers.

McKinney had little or nothing to write about the fact Pete The Pervert has managed, over the years, to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of legal resources by serving legal worthless paper and, gee, how come the Star Tribune hasn't managed to uncover the fact Peter Rickmyer is WANTED ON A WARRANT OUT OF OKLAHOMA AND HAS BEEN SINCE THE EARLY 1990s? (More to follow on JNS blog in coming days since you can't really expect that story from McKinney of the Star Tribune)

And this, I have recently figured out, is the problem with Matt McKinney. Somewhere deep inside McKinney is a very alienated person, and therefore he tends to give too much ink and too much credibility to social malcontents, worthless troublemakers, psychopathic outsiders and (in at least one notable instance) a sex offender pervert than to (for lack of a better way of putting it) normal people.

Productive people.

Good citizens.

People who are on the Police Conduct Oversight Commission instead of venting their hot green bile from somewhere off stage left, because they opposed the whole Commission in the first place and naturally have nothing good to say about the Commission's progress. People like Chuck Turchick and Dave Bicking who, respectively, 1.) has had a bone to pick with American society since being imprisoned for trying to destroy draft records and 2.) unsuccessfully sued the former head of a police review committee and lost more than $5,000 dollars in the process.

So what does Star Tribune reporter Matt "Off Kilter" McKinney do? Well, he...

A Shocking Development To "Property Investors Mark The High Point Of Hawkman's Weekend" As Michael Mangan Arrested For Plotting To Murder People...

Photo, blog post by John Hoff

To get right to the good stuff, go to this Star Tribune link:

Jeff Skrenes, pictured above and NOT accused of plotting murder this week, blogs on the "Hawthorne Hawkman" blog but got his start right here on Johnny Northside as a guest author.

Back when the The Hawkman was working for this blog, he wrote a long and excellent article entitled "Property Investors Mark The High Point of Hawkman's Weekend" which featured a guy named Michael Mangen, a real estate investment guru running a "tour bus" through our neighborhood and giving advice to wannabe property investors.

Jeff's article was written during an era when real estate values in North Minneapolis were so depressed, mortgage foreclosures had changed the face of the neighborhood, and now actual bus tours were being given to look at the destruction and see some kind of opportunity. During the bus tour Michael J. Mangen said he liked Section 8 tenants because he had "leverage" over them. Oh, turns out he loved to have "leverage" indeed and just couldn't bear to give up control....

Posting from a Google profile with the name "Blong Yang," but unconfirmed (ADDENDUM, INFO IS NOW CONFIRMED) to be connected with Fifth Ward Candidate Blong Yang, I have received the following missive:

Johnny Northside, you're a hard person to get a hold of, so here's my response: Your sources are absolutely WRONG on the Jerry Moore connection. I guess they're not very credible. I mean, if you want dirt from my campaign, just come and ask me. Spreading lies and rumors seems to be a common thing, at least from that one campaign. I can guess which one. I don't know Jerry Moore. And, I can flat out say that Jerry Moore has not and will not work for me. Hopefully that's clear.

To which JNS Blog replies: I am glad to hear that, if it's true and if the message does indeed come from you, Mr. Yang. Send me an email. Do you know which campaign, if any, Jerry Moore is working for? Also, I would like your further thoughts on sex offender concentration.

No Local Charges On Jaylin Dubose, Recently Arrested In Chicago, Known To Be (Or Have Been) Wanted For Questioning In The Homicide Of Parrish Gray...

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

Jaylin Dubose, who at one time was wanted for questioning in the murder of Parrish Gray but disappeared from North Minneapolis only to recently face arrest in Chicago, is NOT (I say again, NOT!!!) facing any charges at this time in Minneapolis. I managed to confirm today that no criminal complaint has been filed against Jaylin Dubose in Hennepin County.

Meanwhile, a "Prince Dula," whose profile was the subject of a recent blog posting about a "pistol brandishing" photo, has now changed his profile picture to the Chicago mug shot of Jaylin Dubose. The connection between "Prince Dula" and Jaylin Dubose is unknown but it would appear "Prince Dula" feels some kind of connection.

So far, I have been unable to learn what sort of charges Jaylin Dubose might be facing in Illinios but as far as I can tell he's still at the jail. His inmate number is 2013-1001148 and his "visiting day" is Tuesday from 3:30 to 8:30 PM. 

Is Jerry Moore Working For A Fifth Ward Political Campaign And If So Which One? JNS Blog Is Determined To Get To The Bottom Of This And Also Get That $3,799.69 Jerry Moore Owes Me...

post by John Hoff

As I previously reported, click here, a rumor was passed to me from Source A (a known, credible person) to Source B (an even more well known and equally credible person) that Jerry Moore appeared to be working for Brett Buckner.

Now Source B and also "Source C" are telling me THAT IS NOT CORRECT. In fact, both sources suspect Jerry Moore is, in fact, working for the campaign of Blong Yang, whose domination in the Fifth Ward yard sign war is undisputed. And, in fact, Source B passed on scuttlebutt from one of the political campaigns in Ward 5. At least one Ward 5 campaign believes Jerry Moore is, in fact, associated with Blong Yang. I'm told Jerry and Brett Buckner "don't get along" so while Jerry may very well be spotted talking politely to Buckner, at length (Jerry is known to be incredibly long winded) that doesn't mean Jerry Moore is WORKING for Buckner.

SO WHAT IS GOING ON, HERE? This blogger has caught the rank odor of Jerry Moore in Ward 5 and that would be the same Jerry Moore who owes me $3,799.69!!!!!!!! from the blogosphere trial of the century.

Somebody, tell me something. Tell me if Jerry Moore is working for one of the campaigns and, if so, which one. If any campaigns wish to disavow association with Jerry Moore (which would be a very good idea) then, please, contact me or comment or something.

BY GOD!!!!!! I will get to the bottom of this. I will find Jerry Moore because when I do, I will find my money.

The victim was a former resident of 4502 Aldrich Ave. N. which may be how he knew the no accounts who allegedly live there.

Brett Buckner, in my opinion, doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning the Fifth Ward City Council seat, but since he's a candidate he's fair game for talking about. A commenter--whose knowledge of Buckner is longer than my attention span directed toward Buckner--posted some links to articles mentioning Buckner's past.

Something about the local NAACP? This is the kind of thing which gets folks like Don Allen all worked up, and Al Flowers, and other folks who are involved in that organization but I confess this blogger doesn't really follow all the twists and turns.

Jerome Lance Kingrussell, The Infamous "Imposter Foster" From The Larry Maxwell Mortgage Fraud Case, Is A Wanted Fugitive...

MN DOC mug shot, therefore public domain, blog post by John Hoff

Jerome Lance Kingrussell, who was the infamous "Imposter Foster" in the Larry Maxwell mortgage fraud case, which involved stealing the identity of mild-mannered truck driver John Foster and fraudulently purchasing two homes...

Is a fugitive. Yet again. I've lost count of how many times this has happened. The last time he was supposed to serve a long sentence but obviously he didn't. 

It looks like whatever conditions were imposed upon Kingrussell didn't work out so well, because the MN DOC website is showing his status as "Fugitive Apprehend," a matter that was brought to my attention by a reader who fired me an email and asked to remain anonymous.

The MN DOC website shows Kingrussell was admitted on June 6 of 2012, and released on June 11 of this year on a supervised probationary statuts that was expected to last until 2018. Kingrussell's mug shot shows a "Mr. Clean" bald look different than his previous appearance.

Expect to see this man passing forged checks at Indian casinos in the near future.

(Sarcasm font, or is it?)

Or, possibly, working for Brett Buckner's Fifth Ward political campaign.

To those who live in the Fifth Ward, it's obvious that city council candidate Blong Yang has been winning the yard sign war quite handily. Yang's signs are EVERYWHERE. Even Level Three Sex Offender Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer has a sign in his yard.

Do not mistake that last remark as a criticism of Blong Yang. To my way of thinking, anybody who can make Peter Rickmyer do something useful, like rake leaves, pick up litter, or post a yard sign near a busy intersection, is something of a miracle worker. Though I am mystified why the most notorious sex offender in North Minneapolis supports Blong Yang who, from what I have seen and heard, may be in a dead heat with Ian Alexander as the most anti-sex offender of all the candidates.

As for other candidates in the race, I think I've seen a few Ian Alexander signs, but I don't even know what a Brett Buckner sign looks like. Green Party candidate Kale Severson has been living up to his first name in this race: He's Green, and he's really more of a garnish than an entree. But I have a vague memory of maybe, possibly, seeing one of his signs so that puts Kale slightly ahead of Buckner in the all-important race for next-to-last and the avoidance of total humiliation at the polls ala Lennie Chism. 

If this race were decided upon nothing but yard sign placement, then it's Blong Yang by a landslide. If it were decided upon which candidate is most likely to support turning the proposed Bottineau Transit Line into a groovy vegan co-op, then it's Kale Severson. 

Malik El-Amin Goes To Prison For Robbery, Though Not For Very Long...

MNDOC mug shot, therefore public domain, blog
post by John Hoff

This blog broke the story of how Malik El-Amin, involved in what can only be described as a violent crime spree, appears to be linked to the prominent El-Amin family of El-Amin Fish House based on addresses and names associated with property ownership. I've been told repeatedly El-Amin is the son of Imam Makram El-Amin, but I have not confirmed that to my satisfaction.

A commenter to this blog asked for a follow up to the Malik El-Amin story, and (in true reader responsive Johnny Northside fashion) I checked to Minnesota DOC offender locator where, sure enough, Malik's mug shot has been posted as well as his anticipated release date.

El-Amin isn't expected out of prison until February 11, 2016, and then he'll be on supervised release until June 11, 2017. He was convicted of robbery while in possession of a firearm.

This just doesn't seem like a very long sentence. Perhaps Malik had a very good lawyer. 

Most 911 Fun EVER!!!! As (Suspected) Young And Inexperienced Drug Dealer (Apparently) Swallows His Stash At 420 West Broadway...

I keep telling the 941 participants in the North Vent Facebook forum to drive around and rack up 911 calls and THAT is how you turn around the neighborhood so decent people can live in peace.

So night before last I was driving around for the specific purpose of making 911 calls and I saw a young man standing in front of the Kemps facility on West Broadway, right about where the "tripping cows" mural used to be before, thankfully, it was painted over. A visitor to the neighborhood wouldn't have noticed this young man, but to somebody who has been a resident for half a decade, now, it was apparent he didn't belong at that particular spot and was up to no good.

There's no bus stop at that location. There's no business entrance. It's not the kind of place where you tell your friends to come and meet you. And as I drove by, he made eye contact with me through the windshield and kind of jerked his head.

Oh, yeah, I thought, he's dealing...

Wallet From Victim Of Gruesome Freezer Murder Was Found In North Minneapolis Alley With Illinois Food Stamp Card Missing...

wallet in this story, blog post by John Hoff

Talisha Nakia Hunt of Duluth is accused of being involved in a horrific murder in which the victim's body being stuffed in a freezer. The body was found in Shorewood by the South Lake Minnetonka Police Department, in a freezer wrapped in plastic and duct tape. Click here for the criminal complaint. 

Jetuan Helen Wheeler was the alleged murderer and Hunt is accused of being an accomplice after the fact.

KARE-11 identifies the victim as Eddie SOLE who was beaten to death with a POLE.

Wheeler's children identified some bloody women's sandals as being the property of Talisha Hunt. An EBT card was also found in the name of Hunt. Surveillance video from Sears shows Hunt and Wheeler purchasing a freezer together. I wish I could have been a fly upon the wall to hear the discussions about "storage capacity."

The North Minneapolis connection to this story took place prior to the discovery of the victim's body, when a wallet was found in an alley in North Minneapolis. Missing from the wallet were the victim's Illinois LINK card, (that's like a food stamp card) debit card and Social Security Card.

Hunt used to live in Harvey, Illinois and bus records show Hunt recently went to Chicago then returned to Duluth.

Johnny Northside would like, once again, to ask Chicago to quit exporting its huddled masses to Minnesota.  

Court Judgment Scofflaw Jerry L. Moore Rumored To Be Working For Brett Buckner's Fifth Ward Campaign...

Comment And Criticism, blog post by John Hoff

Jerry Moore, the disgraced former Executive Director of Jordan Area Community Council (JACC) who sued this blogger for defamation, only to have a jury determine the alleged defamatory comment was, in fact, TRUE about him being involved in a mortgage fraud...

Is back. He is back and sticking his nose into Fifth Ward city council politics, even though Moore reportedly lives in Brooklyn Park or is it Brooklyn Center? I don't have the address with me at the moment, though it is on court paperwork mailed to Jerry a couple weeks ago ordering a disclosure of his income and assets.

Anyway, I am told by a reliable source, who passed on information from a second and known reliable source, the following...

Northside "Fingernail Lady" May Have World Record Beaten But Makes No Attempt To Claim Title...

Photo published on North Vent Facebook forum, published under
First Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism

The official world record for longest fingernails on a female is 28 feet, 4.5 inches TOTAL, for all ten fingers. An image of the longest fingernails can be found at this link, click here. 

There is, however, a woman in North Minneapolis named Diane (last name unknown to this blogger) who has been sighted, repeatedly, with fingernails that appear equal to or possibly exceeding the world record. Photos taken from some distance away have been published, repeatedly, on North Minneapolis Facebook forums but the image above is the first "voluntary" photo coming to this blogger's attention.

Here, word-for-word, is the account provided by a "Facebook journalist" on North Vent...

"Prince Dula" is a Facebook friend of "Mula Montana," who is actually Marquail Townsend, who was charged by the police with burglary and charged by this blog with criminally stupid social media choices. 

Turns out Marquail has a Facebook friend who isn't much brighter than he is...

A commenter on a recent blog post about Don Allen...who sure sounds like "Shakedown Blogger" Don Allen himself...mentioned something about the jail roster WHICH HELPFULLY JOGGED MY MEMORY.

Here is this month's jail roster...

Creepy Creepster Van Circles, Hangs Around Outside Home of Blogger Johnny Northside For Two Days...

post by John Hoff

This is the price I pay for blogging about street crime, mortgage fraud, sex offenders, strippers who are baby mamas to criminals, and that sort of thing. This is a still photo obtained from video footage captured by one of my security cameras on September 25.

The van, pictured above, was around for two days. It circled my property repeatedly through the alley and then the driver parked out front and was there for hours. Two days in a row. All the windows were tinted.

There's more I could say but suffice to say information about this incident has been reported to a high ranking police contact. I will write more when I know more.

Mi vida loco.

"Shakedown Blogger" Don Allen Of IBNN Banned From North Talk Facebook Page...No Sign Of Mourning By North Talk Participants...

Creative stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

Don Allen of the IBNN blog, who doesn't live in North Minneapolis or own property in our neighborhood but constantly tries to involve himself in North Minneapolis issues, has been banned from North Talk Facebook page. The page is a discussion forum about North Minneapolis issues which has been eclipsed, of late, by the more popular North Vent Facebook page, but remains a popular forum.

Word is Don Allen was banned for his constant race-baiting on the forum.

This reminds me...

Hey, Don Allen, any more information on what "really happened" in the death of Major Topps? You promised a long time ago you would get to the bottom of it. It's coming up on the third anniversary of your promise.
