A year ago this blog wrote about Derek Angelo Burgess, who was alleged to have twice beaten up his pregnant baby mama.
Well, Derek is currently sitting in jail, charged with a different (but equally stupid) crime. Click here for the criminal complaint. Derek allegedly robbed a woman who was known to him (therefore making identification quite simple) and took $720 from her purse.
But in an odd act of decency which...
...this blogger feels compelled to comment upon, Derek did not (allegedly) take the woman's purse ITSELF after she begged to keep her purse.
Bravo, Derek! If you keep flexing your God given conscience, maybe in the near future you can get all the way to NOT beating up your baby mama and NOT robbing women instead of merely letting a woman keep an empty purse.
The robbery happened in April, allegedly, but I saw Derek's name on the jail roster and thought, gee, he can't still be there for that OTHER thing back in November, could he? Sure enough, it was a different criminal matter.
Derek's home address at one time was 2301 24th Ave. N., but on this new criminal complaint his address is 2801 Emerson Ave. N., a rental property owned by "FDC MN2 LLC" out of Coon Rapids, Minnesota. As of September of last year, the property was flagged for lack of maintenance. As of July of this year, the rental license was in review.
The property appeared on the jail roster at least once before, listed as the residence of a guy named David Devon Coleman. In a pattern this blogger sees far too often, the address was part of the massive wave of foreclosures in 2008.
