Posted By:voxpopuli, 2/12/2013 11:47:23 AM

A 34-year-old man is in jail Tuesday, accused of randomly shooting and killing a 9-year-old boy and wounding two other people as they rode in passing vehicles in Oakdale. Nhan L. Tran, whose home is a few blocks from the shooting scenes, began firing a handgun about 6:10 p.m. Monday while standing in the street near Hadley Avenue N. and 7th Street N., police said.
Cheryl Russell, who lives across the street from the suspect's home, said Tuesday that she looked out a window from her home and saw the man shooting at vehicles at two locations. Russell described the shooter as "very nonchalant, just very calm."

Ahhh, multi-culturalism.......sounds like a Hmong name.......

Of course he was nonchalant........I hate to break it to the monor liberals out there, but truly only in Western Civilizations is life considered sacrosant.

"They" do NOT love their children the same way we do.

He could be from elsewhere in Southeast Asia, but "Tran" is normally a Vietnamese name. Minneapolis is a generous city which harbors many refugees. This one snapped. As do many natural born U.S. citizens, OP....

Why is he in jail. The police have got to start using deadly force when they come upon someone using a weapon.

Excuse me, #1, "They do not love their children the way we do" - with 55 million lives snuffed out since 1973, this is "the way" Americans love their children????

That aside, isn´t legally sponsored immigration the kind we WANT?

Minnesota requested, thru several Churches(as OP infered) to host large numbers of Hmong. There was another shooting several years ago from that community. That is why I THOUGHT it might be a Hmongh name.
#5, I agree with you with one proviso: I do not consider Liberals, whom support abortion to be members of Western Civilization.
#6, visit the Palestinian Shaheed museums, and read the homages Mothers wrote to their martyred children, telling them ho prooud they are.
Then, paste China´s ´one child´ policy to your forehead. Add to it a picture of the toddler who fell out of a vehicle in China, and watch as the dozens and dozens of cars drive over it. Also, tack to it the multitude of stories about babies being killed because Mommy and Daddy wanted a boy but got a girl.
AND add to that the ´honor killings´ of the muzzie world, and then tell me exactly what I said that wasn´t reality based.

And have a good day.

Taylor said in an interview Tuesday that he has made a cash offer as an individual without any other investors. He declined to say how much he would pay, but he emphasized that the Star Tribune is the only media company he is pursuing. “I’m interested in this one because it’s a Minnesota paper,” Taylor said.

A young woman sobs at the door of an apartment in Fridley. She claims to be the daughter of 44-year-old Uriel Ortiz, who was stabbed to death Thursday while at a floral nursery in the east metro. "He was a good man," she said. 59-year-old Gregorio Ramirez is charged with stabbing and killing Ortiz. Rameriz was his co-worker at Bailey Nurseries in Newport. Police say, Thursday afternoon they got a call about a medical emergency at the nursery. When they got there Ortiz was already dead. An investigation began and it determined Ramirez was the only person with Ortiz at the time of the stabbing.

Dawn Marie Pfister was a 34-year-old “free spirit” and the mother of two young children from Elkhorn, Wis. Her boyfriend Matthew Vincent Serbus once lived in St. Paul and had a long criminal record for theft, robbery and drugs. Now, Pfister’s family and friends are searching for answers about how and why the couple died of gunshot wounds after leading police on a high-speed chase on Hwy. 212 from Chaska to Eden Prairie on Friday morning. The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office identified the two Saturday. Officials have not released many details about the incident or explained what prompted police to open fire.

In a radio interview last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) made some disparaging comments about pro-life conservatives, stating they had “no place in the state of New York because that’s not who New Yorkers are.” Those remarks drew the ire of conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, who on his Monday radio program declared he had enough and was abandoning his home state, where he hosts his widely syndicated radio show and his high-rated Fox News Channel television program.

Thirteen people were injured, six critically, early Wednesday moirning after an explosion caused a major fire at a grocery store and apartment building on Cedar Ave. in south Minneapolis. No cause has been identified as of yet, said Greg Nelson, supervisor of the Minneapolis Emergency Communications Center, but the building that housed the West Bank Grocery and a mosque is likely a total loss. A police squad car reported the fire at around 8:16 a.m. after seeing the explosion and seeing debris on the street, he said. Flames were shooting 20 feet from the building, officials said. The second and third floor later collapsed. The injured were transported to Hennepin County Medical Center and Univesity Hospital.

Federal authorities have obtained confidential documents that shed new light on JPMorgan Chase´s decision to hire the children of China´s ruling elite, securing emails that show how the bank linked one prominent hire to "existing and potential business opportunities" from a Chinese government-run company. The documents, which also include spreadsheets that list the bank´s "track record" for converting hires into business deals, offer the most detailed account yet of JPMorgan´s "Sons and Daughters" hiring program, which has been at the center of a federal bribery investigation for months.

The Hennepin County sheriff remained tight-lipped on the death of Dr. Stephen L. Larson of Orono and Ted Hoffstrom, the St. Anthony man police killed in his yard. The armed man killed by police outside a slain Orono doctor’s home was identified Sunday as Ted C. Hoffstrom. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner said Sunday that both Hoffstrom, 30, of St. Anthony, and Dr. Stephen L. Larson, a prominent OB-GYN physician, died of multiple gunshot wounds.

In a clearing at the edge of one of the largest intact forests on Earth, Laura Kavajecz flits about like a tree fairy with a clipboard, slipping long mesh tubes over tiny seedlings. (snip) Driven by a warming climate, scientists predict, the forest will soon follow the glaciers and retreat north by as much as 300 miles in the next century. Much of northern Minnesota, they say, will become open savannas like those in Nebraska and eastern Kansas — with grasses and brush, a few scattered trees, and domes of bare rock rising from the ground.

Shavelle Chavez-Nelson spent fewer than four of the past 14 years outside the walls of Minnesota jails or prisons. In that time, he was accused or convicted of at least seven violent crimes. He and Anarae Schunk, a smart 20-year-old college student, met at a bus stop in the summer of 2012, during Nelson’s longest stretch as a free man. He told her he was a hedge fund manager, and despite the disapproval of her family and friends, Schunk dated him for a few months. Those who knew her say she thought she could help him.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel´s choice of the term "degrade" to describe an attack on Syria has been interpreted by Pentagon planners as guidance for a limited strike, according to senior military officials. (snip) A second senior official, who has seen the most recent planning, offered this metaphor to describe such a strike: If Assad is eating Cheerios, we´re going to take away his spoon and give him a fork. Will that degrade his ability to eat Cheerios? Yes. Will it deter him? Maybe. But he´ll still be able to eat Cheerios.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
