Hezekiah Hamilton, who has (so near as this blog can determine) never NOT been a suspect in the murder of Jody Patzner since his questioning and release by police, (nor has he ever been convicted) has still walked a very hard road since that time.
As this blog reported in November of 2013, he was convicted on drug charges and faced a probation violation hearing. Now Hamilton is sitting in jail, charged with...
...violating a protection order. When Hennepin County gets done with him, Anoka County wants Hamilton on a felony charge. And then Polk County wants him on a felony charge, too! His mug shot doesn't make him look like a very big guy. I doubt there's enough of him to go around.
It is the general observation of JNS blog that once somebody is a suspect in a murder, and "walks" due to, for example, wisely invoking Fifth Amendment rights, at that point local police "have your number." You will not spit on the sidewalk without Minneapolis police issuing a charge, not a warning.
To which JNS blog says...
God bless the Fourth Precinct.
Oh, by the way, Hamilton's address is listed on the jail roster as 3106 Newton Ave. N., a rental property owned by Wenrich Property and Development, LLC.
Never heard of them. JNS blog finds itself not liking the new landlord characters in our neighborhood sitcom. I say bring back some of the old characters, like Keith "Not The Best, Not The Worst" Reitman and Bashir "There Are No Limits To My Humility" Moghul.
