change that, also JNS blog asserted public safety exception, blog

Jiyaad Jamaal Copeland was the subject of a story on MPR about easy access to guns on the street. Following the story, he was arrested and JNS blog wrote about him.
Well, he's been arrested YET AGAIN...
...and, once again, it's for alleged gun crimes. Copeland was arrested on January 20 by the Stearns County Sheriff's office. He's now sitting in jail on $200,000 bail and charged with possessing a pistol or assault weapon after being adjudicated for a crime of violence. He doesn't have a hearing until March 10. No address is listed though an extraneous comma tells me something was there and then removed so it only says ",Minneapolis, MN 55411."
I've spent so much of my life scrutinizing the jail roster that I've come to the conclusion there is a default in the system which adds ",Minneapolis, MN 55411" automatically. Sometimes I see addresses where are nowhere near the 55411 zip code but these addresses have ",Minneapolis, MN 55411" appended.
But I digress, and in a very geeky blogger way, I might add...
ANYHOW, Copeland's name is flying around in comments made about another matter. I have not gotten to the bottom of those anonymous factual assertions.
It should be noted the new arrest could very well be for an OLD matter and might not rise to the level of a new matter.
