What’s happened to Minneapolis?
It’s gone from being a fairly innocuous city, to a terror destination in a relatively short period of time.
Now, people in the downtown area are being subjected to brutal and savage beatdowns and robberies by roving mobs of young people.
It’s gotten so bad, city officials are seeking to create a type of “task force” to combat the violence. The city is reporting a 53% increase in robberies over last year. That’s absurd and unacceptable. Who are these young people and what are their ties to the city?
Is this America, or a third world sh*thole?
The surveillance video is brutal. One shows a group of people on the Target Field Plaza start punching a man, then jumping on him, stripping off his pants and stealing from his pockets, throwing a potted plant on him, then running over him with a bicycle.
“I don’t think I have ever seen anything like what I saw at Target Field,” said Ken Sherman, owner of 7 Steakhouse and Sushi on Hennepin Ave.
Sherman has long been a critic of the amount of crime-fighting resources spent downtown. He thinks these videos recorded in August, while shocking, are important for the public to see.
“Look, stealing is one thing. But the level of viciousness goes far beyond I think anything any of us who are civil people imagine,” Sherman said.
A second video given to KARE 11 this week shows a group surrounding a man at 5th and Hennepin, snatching his cell phone then beating him senseless.
And Sherman gave KARE yet another video, recorded in July, of the same thing happening to two men in that same area.
Police recently arrested 16 people allegedly involved in these incidents.
At this time last year, there’d been 156 robberies in the downtown precinct. This year, there’s been 240. That’s more than a 53% increase. [Kare 11]
