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.
