Ave. N., blog post by John Hoff
Though former city councilman (and current Minneapolis School Board Member) Don Samuels was not elected Mayor, the campaign issue of half a dozen "North Minneapolis crime families" continues to resonate. The issue especially resonates with residents who live the reality, daily, of a small number of families being disproportionally involved in neighborhood crime.
A sidebar on my blog solicits stories and information about these crime families and recently a reader contributed that very type of information, as follows...
JNS blog says: I don't remember what North Minneapolis homicide that was. There are just too many to keep track.
I will note that MNCIS shows a Damon Marcus Bobo, DOB 6/2/89, and a Damon Marcus Bobo, DOB 4/15/67. The name "Vincent Alexander Moorman DOB 4/20/68" (seriously!) comes up as a false name used by the "elder" Damon Bobo. These names and DOB's may correspond to the "elder" and "younger" Bobos in the story by my reader.
Or might not. The process of fleshing out the history of the half dozen or so North Minneapolis crime families is an ongoing process.
