Ron Christopher Powell, who may or may not be a member of a Minneapolis "crime family" with that same surname, is charged for the murder of a man at Champions Bar (105 West Lake Street) where police say numerous individuals at the scene refused to cooperate with police. The owners of the bar, incredibly, are trying to blame police for "creating conditions" that somehow led to the shooting.
Oh yeah? Well, JNS blog is here and now officially blaming Champions bar for...
..."creating conditions" that led to the shooting, specifically a skanky bar where armed layabouts like to hang out, drinking and doing unproductive no account things until (oops!) somebody ends up dead.

Turns out Ron Christopher Powell is a resident of North Minneapolis, at least according to his address on the criminal complaint: 1700 Upton Ave. North. The property in question is a rental owned by "Tenos M. Pete" of Bend, Oregon. There's somebody with that same distinctive name who was a defendant in a court case involving real estate and unlawful trade practices, click here for a link. I'm not going to dig too deeply into this because guest blogger Camden Canary loves this kind of thing and I'll just put him on the scent.
In the meantime, I have a message for Tenos Pete:
HELLO!!!??? CAN YOU HEAR ME OUT THERE IN OREGON?
Can you hear me across hundreds of miles of snowy plains, the Cascade Mountains, the eerie mist that clings to the Pacific coast and hides "Twilight" vampires and werewolves? Can you hear me through all that, Tenos Pete? If you can, here's a message for you:
Maybe you need to pick better renters at your rental property in faraway Minneapolis.
