JNS blog asserted public safety exception to copyright, and (joke font) "felon
grabbing his crotch" copyright exception (end joke font) blog post by John Hoff
Dashaunta Dmar Gomez, a young felon and a member of the most infamous crime family in North Minneapolis, plus a chronic Facebook crotch grabber (see, above, Exhibit A) has ended up about where many of us have expected him to end up for the last couple years: sitting in jail charged with murder.
City Councilman Don Samuels ran for mayor on a platform of doing something about multi-generation crime families like the Gomez family (Samuels didn't mention the Gomez's by name but we all knew exactly who Samuels was talking about) but Samuels didn't win the election. No sensible focus by Mayor Hodges on the issue of crime families has taken place, and now another murder has been committed (allegedly) by a member of a prominent crime family.
While it is not confirmed that Gomez is sitting in jail over the murder of Johnathon J. "Jada" Harris...
...the timing of the arrest seems to point to that, as does the fact an unnamed co-conspirator triggerman was mentioned in the criminal complaint against Demiteras Cooper, as does the fact one or more anonymous commenters got on this blog half a dozen times and asserted DaShaunta was a fugitive in the murder; though none cited any proof.
The jail roster shows Gomez arrested on March 5 and charged with second degree murder, not premeditated, possessing a pistol or assault rifle after being adjudicated for a crime of violence, (hardly young Gomez's first ride at the rodeo even where THAT charge is concerned) theft and giving a police officer a false name. He is being held on a million and a half dollars bail. The address of 3341 Oliver Ave. N., previously linked to the Gomez brood, once again appears on the jail roster as the nesting place of this particular Gomez. The property is a rental owned by Kevin L. Stevensen of Waconia, Minnesota, though the taxpayer is listed as Twins National Land Trust.
Interestingly, (well, OK, it's only mildly interesting) in September of 2011 the property listing showed it was owned by both Kevin Stevenson and a Christine Stevensen. JNS blog can't help but wonder if this is some kind of routine property shuffle that shows up in the city's online records or if there is trouble in Slumlordia, a notable lack of wedded bliss.
Slumlords would do well to stay out of North Minneapolis and not dream in dollar signs attached to my neighborhood as we struggle to pull ourselves upward. Your slummy names will surely end up on this blog, as surely as DaShaunta Dmar Gomez was headed for jail on murder charges the moment he was born to that uncontrolled nest of criminal vipers known as the Gomez family.*
Thanks to the anonymous commenter who pointed me to the jail roster, though your reference to non-consensual jailhouse sex was completely gratuitous.
* Rumor has it there are some members of the Gomez family who don't have criminal records.**
