Major James Moore, DOB 2/21/78, allegedly shot into his ex-girlfriend's house in Northeast Minneapolis and then, for good measure, pointed the rifle at police who showed up. Incredibly, police DID NOT shoot Moore dead on the spot. Where are the media reports endlessly analyzing how THAT went down and lauding the heroic actions of the police?
Though the incident happened in Northeast, according to the jail roster Moore resides at 4101 Thomas Ave. N., a rental property owned by "Notho LLC" headquartered at 9003 Minnehaha Circle, St. Louis Park.
...a previous conviction for disorderly conduct, though the "disorderly" was a plea bargain which involved dropping two domestic assault charges. Those charges were originally brought back in 2001, though it wasn't until 2010 that Moore was done with his probation for the disorderly conduct charge, probably due to the fact he kept getting charged with violating his probation. That's a LONG TIME to be on probation over a crummy disorderly conduct charge.
Plus Moore STILL owes the system $80 in court costs for that case. All things considered, however, he doesn't have THAT much of a criminal record. Maybe his excuse to police holds true: He likes to spend his time playing video games and smoking PCP.
In 2013, he was sued in a child support case (27-FA-13-8233) but the baby mother in the case had a 55411 zip code, so she was in North Minneapolis not Northeast. She could have moved, I suppose, and this could be the same woman as the present incident. (Shrug shrug)
The court record in the child support action erroneously spells Moore's surname "Moorer" but a birthday of 02/21/78 shows it's the same guy.
The same LUCKY guy who didn't get justifiably shot dead by police. Major James Moore needs to figure out how to serve Jesus in the miraculous amount of life he has left.
