Sadly North Minneapolis Has Become Accustomed To Violence And Crime. But When A Tiny Baby Was Shot In The Head, We Were All Left Speechless! Exclusive Update As Baby Isaac Early Turns One Year Old (GUEST BLOG POST BY JORDAN NORTH YES THE GIRL WONDER HAS SURVIVED THE FIRST AMENDMENT CHILL RAY! THIS PARENTHETICAL COMMENT IN THIS HEADLINE IS BY JOHNNY NORTHSIDE, STILL WITH SOME MINOR BLOGGING LIFE FUNCTIONS!!!!)

Blog post by Jordan North


Baby Isaac, at the ripe old age of one has had more tragedy and triumph than many of us have in a lifetime. He was shot and still has the bullet lodged in his head. He made a miraculous recovery that surprised doctors and specialists. At the very same time he was in a hospital struggling for his life, his big sister was in the hospital, doing the same.

Sadly a few months later, she...


...went to be with God. I was left wondering why. She was the sweetest princess. The Northside needs more of them...I will not forget her.





Isaac is doing very well and has come along way in his recovery. I spoke with his mother today and she said that he is having some minor difficulties due to the shooting but he is doing great. They are starting to wean him off of his seizure medications and I have faith he will continue to do well.

I am so happy that he has moved far away from Jordan, the dangers and the bullets that seem to be a common occurrence here. That fact alone saddens me because I live here. A part of me says to stay and fight, help turn this area around and still another part wonders what is the cost. What did it cost Isaac Early? Time will tell.


Today baby Isaac went to the petting zoo. Today baby Isaac pinched a pony. Perhaps the pony understood all that he had been through and wasn't too upset.


And the pinch...

Got a flyer from the Minneapolis Police Department about "Shutting Down The Block Opening Up The Conversation" They're apparently going to shut down 36th Ave. N. between Fremont and Emerson on Monday August 11th because Chief Janee Harteau and MPD officers want our input, "pure and simple". Is this a fucking joke? The "chief" took half of the additional officers that the Mpls. city council approved to be on the beat in North and put them in South Mpls. The only thing the goddamn MPD can do is to be more aggressive and get more of them on the streets. What else do they want to conversate about? Nothing else is in their power and the "chief" already blew it. This is no more than a lip service PR stunt.

Check back on the little guy in 15 years ...he is being raised in a thug environment. I wish him the best of luck but realize what he is surrounded by. Too bad.

If you want to email me a copy of the flyer as a PDF, if you can, I'd appreciate it. It's the kind of thing I'd normally write about. But as I am currently chilled in my First Amendment speech, I will not be writing about it any time soon.

Feel free to keep commenting, however.

Johnny Northside! said...

I will also add this: If the Chief is trying different things and trying to have a dialogue, I support that or at least I withhold judgment to see if it will work. Heck, this blog itself has called for dialogue, though I have been specific that a dialogue needs to begin with members of the community involved in releasing "murder rap" songs alluding to particular murders committed like that of Tyrone "Ty Crack" Washington, a gang leader killed at a nightclub.

While the commenter may be critical of the Chief, this blog withholds judgment and continues to be cautiously supportive of the Chief. I wouldn't want her job, that's for sure. I do, however, desperately want more cops on North Minneapolis streets and the fact some of those cops were sent to SOUTH Minneapolis while the murders were happening up here, that was simple politics.

Southside gets more because it cries. Northside sits in numb silence like a baby that's been neglected so much it believes crying won't get it anything. Not my metaphor. That of a community leader who spoke to me recently.

So sick of all the bogus dialog and political grandstanding!

If police want to get control of the Northside they have to get out of their cars and put away the wolf pack mentality, defensiveness, and obvious fear and loathing they have for the 99% of good residents that live here. This means establishing a proactive community policing program that involves neighborhood patrols and establishing trust and communications with block club members. By establishing real two way communications and appointing active patrol liaisons who actually get to know who the players are in each neighborhood and working with residents to change the dysfunctional behaviors before they become felonies we can have a positive impact on behaviors and crime.

Anonoymous@10:00am,

Isaac is not being raised in a thug environment. He is far away from here. The closest thing to thugs in his town are the guys in the fraternity.

Johnny Northside! said...

It's the POLICE who enforce law and order and THE RESIDENTS (some of them, the ones who aren't "decent people") who break the law.

How, then, do you lay the blame at the feet of the POLICE? Or blame them that they don't want to mix and mingle with people who are violent and act in trashy ways?

Lion News said...

In Wolfy Johnny's delusional black and white world (Cult mentality? “Urban Utopia” is cult mentality, isn't it?) the only the individuals who commit crimes are the individuals who are not cops, aren't they?

Wolfy Johnny refuses to see the illegal searches, the testilying and the planted evidence, doesn't he? I have an email from Wolfy Johnny to prove that, don't I, Wolfy Johnny? It's hard to maintain law and order when the so-called public servants are promoting lawlessness/anarchy, isn't it? It is, isn't it?

South central Minneapolis has crime too.
NoMi doesn't have a monopoly on crime. You can't have all the cops, all the social services, all the charter schools, all the newest parks and playgrounds. Remember the rest of the city has needs too.
Just cuz your hood is a ghetto doesn't mean the rest of the city should go down the toilet.

Wolfy Johnny is it a matter of the public record that you are mentally competent? How about your family? My enemies (The corrupt local officials, right?) have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that I as right as rain, haven't they? Projecting your faults and weaknesses onto me is a standard wolf propaganda trick, isn't it? It is, isn't it?

I was “in Stanek's jail”? Wolfy Johnny amazing that you would make the wild and outrageous claim that I was in Stanek' jail, right? After all you maliciously post the jail roster, don't you? Have you ever seen my name on the Hennepin County jail roster? I mean besides the one that you scrawled my name in with your wolf colored crayon, don't I? What day or days did I spend in the Hennepin County jail, huh, Wolfy Johnny?

Apparently, smearing people is good therapy for you, right? It helps you sleep at night, huh?

Do not enter the path of the wicked, And do not walk in the way of evil. Avoid it, do not travel on it; Turn away from it and pass on. For they do not sleep unless they have done evil; And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall. Proverbs 4:14-16 KJV

So the only one who is “over the top” (And around the bend, right?) and in need of therapy is Wolfy Johnny, correct? More of that sick and twisted passive-aggressive thinking of yours that you have rights and I don't, correct?

Johnny Northside! said...

A thousand pardons, Lion News. If you weren't ever in Stanek's jail, it is my misunderstanding. I have gone back and reviewed and, yes, I see that your anger at Stanek is actually pointless and not due to some actual personal mistreatment by Stanek or his jail personnel.

Here is your video of you wasting the time of Hennepin County.

If you provide me your full legal name (I am confused on what it is? Terry NEMERS?) I will be glad to check on MNCIS and see what record, if any, you have or do not have.

Wolfy Johnny was caught playing dumb again, wasn't he? Wolfy Johnny is not a very good liar, is he? Wolfy Johnny can't keep his lies straight, can he? And this is email is Wolfy Johnny's attitude toward people who are getting injustice from corrupt local officials, isn't it? Just more of Wolfy Johnny sick and twisted passive aggressive-behavior, isn't it? Wolfy Johnny has rights and suspects run through the corrupt Hennepin Co. system don't, right?

subject: DARRIN MARCEL POTTS Case No. 27-CR-12-6141 framed by MPD?
John:

Here's a case for you. A chance to redeem yourself. I called public defender Angela Bailey on 10-23-12 and left a message. I have all (3) three calls recorded. My message was that:

1. I was aware that there was a change of public defenders in the Potts case. Previousl,y a Robert Joseph Kolstad had been the PD. According to Potts, he did nothing!
2. I saw an affidavit in Potts' possession which stated that the drugs he is being charged with belonged to the person who signed the affidavit.
3. Potts claimed he had been framed before by the MPD and was acquitted.
4. My message stated that I was aware of the change of lawyers, the affidavit and wanted to speak about the past allegations of planting evidence.
5. Bailey never called me back.
6. On 12-17-12 I call both her and the Chief PD and left the message that I found it strange that the trial that was set for 12-10-12 was cancelled and now is rescheduled to 03-13-13; a new prosecutor is on
the case (Previous one - Sarah Helen Stennes); suddenly an Omnibus hearing is scheduled for 01-02-13. A flurry of activity after I called - not before!
7. Finally, I asked if they had intended to keep him in jail for over a year to get him to confess to something that he hadn't done. (Original charge 02/28/2012)

Tell me why you have an interest in this case? Does this guy have some connection to
your intensely rural neck of the woods?

A switch in public defenders is nothing out of the ordinary here in The Big City. They are switched and
swapped like white athletic socks that originally come in matching monogamous pairs, but soon enough become swingers when they end up in the laundry for the first time.

Secondly, according to Potts he did nothing (!). Oh, my goodness, I've never heard THAT from a criminal defendant before. This is unique in the annals of alleged crime. For goodness sake, dig into this!!!! (Sarcasm font, with extra sarcasm)

Third...

New schedule? New prosecutor? Oh, how suspicious. Except for the part about rescheduling
happens ALL THE TIME and as for new prosecutor, SO WHAT? This is the big city. This is
just one case of THOUSANDS. This kind of switching happens all the time. Honestly, your
country mouse ways grow tedious. WHY ON EARTH DO YOU CARE ABOUT THIS CASE?
Why have you wasted even a SECOND of my valuable time? Does this guy have ANY
connection to North Minneapolis? Does this guy have ANY connection to North Minneapolis?


Does Wolfy Johnny Northside (of Oklahoma, right?) have any real connection to North Minneapolis?

Damn right North should have priority for more police, or at least the same amount before the city's poor handling of this year's retirements 12:45 AM. You should be thanking the good people of North for continuing to have to deal with greater society's throw-aways which continue to be dumped here unabated. Your cognitive dissonance is staggering 12:45. In the same breath you call Nomi a ghetto and acknowledge its many needs but you say that it shouldn't have the required tools to deal with it.

So Johnny, It is pretty transparent that you want to maintain a good working relationship with law enforcement but either you are being disingenuous regarding the lack of progress that all the continued PR ops have or completely naive about how ineffective and isolated law enforcement is from the community.

The Block Club program is a joke and there is little or no coordination with Regulatory or Social Services. Law enforcement is completely reactive to felonies and violent crime with little understanding or effort to stem the root causes of community dysfunction.

If you embrace the ideology that police are justified in their lowered expectation of the community as a whole because we do have serious dysfunctional elements, then you lack an understanding of why youth in this community perpetuate the negative lifestyles which manifest violent crime and diminish the professionalism needed to address these problems.

Thanks for your long, long reply. If your time was so valuable, then why would repeat yourself in the email & why is it so long?

I was in jail with this guy in Sherburne County. And I told him that I would try to help him if I could. JNS has a post about false allegations so don't try to come off like you don't care about injustice. And you know it smells fishy so don't try to pull that "routine" stuff on me. Plus, his address is Minneapolis.

P.S. Also, I received an extremely hostile phone call from the Chief Public Defender. So that makes (4) recorded phone calls.

"I should take my own advice and not waste my valuable time on me." Is this some 800lbs gorilla nonsense? Maybe in your panic you confused the word "me" (Which makes no sense, right?) with "you" (Which makes more sense, correct?)? Of course, if you have watched even a few of my

Terry

P.S. Did you get your phony flag-waving shtick from your brother or vice-versa?


Wolfy Johnny Northside (of Oklahoma?) believes in that every single wolf in Wolfy Johnny's wolf pack deserves equal justice, doesn't he? And Wolfy Johnny loves to cast the first stone, doesn't he?

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. John 8:7 King James Version (KJV)

While there are bigger issues to discuss than little Isaac's diet, I agree with 9:52 a.m. that children need nutritious food. AND I agree with Jordan North that fresh potatoes (I hope it's a real potato and not flakes from a box) and green beans are delicious. While out and about I often see babies and little children being fed soda and corn chips. As adults we can make those choices, but kids need good food!

All the luck in the world to Baby Isaac. May his future be filled with joy and happiness.

Johnny Northside! said...

There is nothing wrong with what the baby is eating. It looks like something I would have fed to my own son when he was a baby. Even if the potatoes are instant that's better than potato chips. I hope this little guy turns out OK. Even if Petra is doing the best she can there's a lot of no-accounts in her family who might drop by and visit. She'd be better off not having contact with MANY of her blood relatives, unfortunately.

Johnny Northside! said...

Ah, yes, I did seem to recall there was some jailbird incident involved. A THOUSAND PARDONS that I thought it might be in Hennepin County, since you're on a misguided crusade against the Hennepin County Sheriff.

So, Terry NEMMERS with two "M's" of Lion News, care to discuss your rap sheet on this thread? And when will you be paying the money you owe to the judicial system?

Lion News said...

Wolfy Johnny Northside (Of Oklahoma?) snarled: August 12, 2014 at 8:38 PM Ah, yes, I did seem to recall there was some jailbird incident involved It would appear that “jailbird” is the term that Wolfy Johnny uses to describe black, males Muslims who are suspects in a crime, wouldn't it? The “jailbird” who had an affidavit from someone else who stated that they were the ones who possessed the drugs, right? Just another “technicality,” right, Wolfy Johnny? So what if the wrong person is being prosecuted, right? All that matters to Wolfy Johnny is that the appearance of justice occurs, correct?

Sounds like Jeff Skrenes and Wolfy Johnny Northside (Of Oklahoma?) are howling the same cult mantra, doesn't it?

Getting Punched in the Face in Front of a Mini-Peace Rally Only SOUNDS Funny
It was at this moment that the weight of what I was about to do really hit me, harder than this fellow's punch, to be honest. I wondered about White privilege, and if the same thing would be happening if racial roles were reversed. I wondered whether this guy was just having a really bad day, and maybe this mark on his record would start him down a path of being stuck in a biased criminal justice system. (Or conversely, what if this guy had a rap sheet as long as my arm, and this was the one chance to bring him in?)

Ultimately, I decided that none of these things could affect my decision. I picked a course of action this way: I was assaulted, and the assault was unprovoked. There should be consequences for such an unwarranted attack. I would not have been satisfied with him being accosted for a few minutes in the back of a squad car; that was not enough of a consequence. And the only opportunity to bring about an appropriate consequence was right then. Right there.


The mantra is that Wolfy Johnny and his wolf pack are only concerned about themselves, proper placement of commas and money, right? That's right, isn't it? Oh here is your opening Wolfy Johnny, isn't it?

Wolfy Johnny which of one of the malicious prosecutions do you want to discuss, hmmmm? Want to learn some tricks of the trade if you ever get a license, huh? Why would I reward criminal activity, huh?

But I am printing it anyway. At least people are talking about nutrition at some level so, you know, gotta encourage a free speech debate.

Another comment is so reprehensible it is rejected. That would be the comment with the word "jism" so rejected commenters can keep track of who they are.

Go back in this blog and read about the relatives of that child. If that child has a chance it will be due to GETTING AWAY from both the blood relatives and the in-laws. And Petra trying to lead a better life. She's young and I hope she can turn it around for the sake of her son.
