(THANKSGIVING 2014) Jeremiah Elijah Blackwell Held On Aggravated Robbery Charge, But Jail Roster Also Lists "Murder"
Christmas Dinner in Afghanistan, but it looked a lot like
a Thanksgiving meal, blog post by John Hoff
It's Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving, JNS blog readers!
Today at the Hennepin County Jail, almost certainly, some rudimentary attempt will be made to serve up a Thanksgiving meal. There will be turkey and mashed potatoes, and a red streak that MIGHT be cranberries.
Hopefully the sight of that sad, humble Thanksgiving meal in the jailhouse contrasted against memories of much better, much more festive Thanksgiving Day meals will force many in the jail to seriously reconsider their life choices.
Or, well, ALLEGED life choices.
One of the guests at today's "jailhouse Thanksgiving" will be be Jeremiah Elijah Blackwell, charged with aggravated robbery.
However, the jail roster also lists...
Check out that portion of the roster for yourself:
Blackwell's home address is listed on the roster as 2721 Golden Valley Road, a rental property owned by Michael Dorsey of 1821 Sumter Ave.
In 2013, Blackwell was found guilty of theft of moveable property. The online court docket for that charge shows Jeremiah Blackwell also uses the name "Tevin Blackwell." On that charge, he received credit for 19 days and was put on three years of supervised probation.
In May of this year, while on "supervised probation," Blackwell was again convicted of theft of moveable property. His sentence conditions included staying away from all Macy's stores.
Hey! Macy's is the sponsor of a big Thanksgiving Day parade!
Wow, that totally fits my holiday theme...
It's unknown what murder (or attempted murder) incident Blackwell is suspected of, but JNS blog has its ear to the ground.
This makes five blog posts in a row referencing murder or attempted murder.
Quite a sad and notable red streak.
