CODY LENNELL TAYLOR Was The Guy Shot In An Alley On The Northside, And Follows The Pattern Of Most Northside Shooting "Victims" Who Have Extensive Criminal Records...

God knows why, but mainstream media are reporting about a man shot in a Northside alley who has nothing more than a leg wound. It is unknown at this time if the reporting is merely a fluke, or if the mainstream media have some intention of reporting the many non-fatal shootings which occur in our neighborhood. The shooting took place on the 700 block of 21st Ave. North. They do not use the word "alley" but my source says it was in the alley, at 3 a.m. 

A highly-placed source contacted JNS blog and reported the name of the shooting victim is Cody Lennell Taylor...

Click here to view his mug shot. 

JNS blog pulled up his rap sheet, as follows, not all of which may represent actual criminal convictions.

Discussion has been floating around on quasi-official channels which concerns Taylor, and some of it goes like this, and I'm paraphrasing except where you see quote marks:

Taylor recently moved to the Second Precinct. Clearly his intention wasn't to get away from crime in the Fourth Precinct since he was found shot in a piss-smelling alley at 3 in the morning; a time and place where no decent person would be, police and members of ambulance crews being the obvious exceptions to the rule. 

Taylor was apparently on TRIPLE probation involving three different crimes, something that would NEVER happen in Hennepin County for more serious offenses. (Here, I assume the sarcasm font was being used though not properly designated with the words "sarcasm font") 

His first probation was apparently a theft from a person which involved the time Cody "knocked a phone from a women's (sic) hand downtown and fled with it." Then second probation involved driving a stolen car and then fleeing on foot after he was stopped. 

(Here, JNS blog wishes to point out Cody did the right thing by not fleeing IN THE VEHICLE and endangering others) The third probation was robbery. He grabbed a phone from a woman's hand downtown and fled with it. (Yes, I double checked to make sure I wasn't re-reading a piece of text incorrectly. Turns out Cody is a creature of habit. Allegedly) 

Another incident involving Cody was especially heartwarming. (Sarcasm font) Cody went to Abbot Hospital to visit his newborn child, no doubt aware it is a positive thing for a father to be involved in a child's life. While at the hospital, he went to the staff area and stole cell phones from the purses of the staff, some of which were probably directly involved in delivering his baby. 

(And I say "his baby" in the sense of not actually having access to a paternity test, and DEMANDING one)

This incident, currently pending in the system, may result in the rare and much-sought-after "quadruple" probation. Some facts of the incident were described in a recent article on MPR, "Judge gets paternal on convicted thief." 

To all this JNS blog suggests...

Taylor wasn't up to anything good when he was in that alley.

I say charge him with loitering.

And lucky us we get to pay for all of the hospital bills and the child's life while big daddy goes to prism. What a bunch of crap.

Maybe ol' Cody was applying for a job in that alley at 3 AM. Stealing multiple phones on one occasion is felony theft. Why do they keep charging him only for misdemeanors.

So the judge lets him go after the stern lecture and he goes to the hospital and steals some phones. His mug shot says he was in jail in Burnsville on 12/31. Was this for the hospital theft or something else? Then he is shot on 1/11. Hopefully the judge will be informed of just how well Taylor listened...

For the record, I am not sure if the stern lecture was BEFORE the phone stealing incident at the hospital when Taylor was playing the "new dad card," or if the stern lecture happened as part of the hearing ABOUT the alleged theft of the phones.

Either way, the guy is a dirt bag. I'm working on getting even more information about his alleged and actual dirt baggery.

I hope he is a quadrapalegic who constantly shits on himself and needs his ass wiped by one of his baby's mama's. This is merely my hope and it should be posted as mean but relevant. Put a tennis ball in his feeding that's mean.

You should have your source dig deeper next time. None of this is true. As far as a dirt bag..regardless of his previous history no one deserves to be shot. So, when you go searching for more information make sure its FACTS. By the way, it wasn't 3 a.m. When he was shot. If you can't even get the time right why should anyone believe the rest of your story?

The hospital information is a lie as well. The baby isn't even born yet.

If you want to take up the accuracy of what my source is saying, I'll need more proof than your anonymous say-so.

There is no need for me to prove anything. I'm a much closer source than yours...TRUST ME. My point was to prove this is all false. As far as the "mean comment" he was out the hospital the next day in good condition. Remember, he only left with a leg injury. I assume because he has all these charges he's such a bad person. I won't be ignorant or go back and forth with you nor your readers. I enjoy your blogs but after reading this, I'm curious if I should believe them.
