Importing criminals

Minnesota seems to get more than it's share of imported thugs and criminals. They come from Chicago, Detroit, Illinois, Somalia, and other places that churn them out as fast as liberals can produce welfare mothers.

This blog has noted this phenomenon on several occasions - here is a particularly egregious example of the fruits of Minnesota's soft criminal "justice" system (By the way, in liberal-speak the fuzzy term for thugs is "offenders").

Rambix will report where the criminal is from when and if that information is offered by the media or police. In many cases, liberal organs like the Red Star will suppress that information, because they know that many come from out of state and they don't want the public to know that our welfare state is an attractive nuisance. That's called social engineering.

The latest example of imported thuggery is also an extreme example. Now we appear to be importing super-sized scumbags; people who have nothing to lose and no conscience: "Chicago Man Called 'One-Man Crime Wave'".

(AP) St. Paul It was late October when Antonio Sanders walked out of a Chicago jail and came to Minnesota to visit his mother in the Twin Cities.

Within days, prosecutors allege, the 36-year-old went on a violent crime spree to support his drug habit. He held up more than a dozen stores at gunpoint and shot one clerk in the face, prosecutors claim.

The 6-foot-9-inch, 346-pound Sanders is now charged with committing 24 felonies in three counties. Prosecutors say the sheer number of serious crimes -- one attempted murder, 21 aggravated robberies, an assault and a burglary -- in such a brief period is unprecedented locally.

"He is a one-man crime wave," Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner said.

Is this the kind of people we want to attract to this state?

The Red Star used a lot of newspaper space today promoting homosexuality, and one of the propaganda pieces they used argued that if the Pro-Marriage constitutional amendment is passed, our state wouldn't attract the "creative class".

Well, why can't our disingenous newspaper apply the same principles to the obvious crime attractions our state offers? Instead of attracting the "creative class", we're attracting the "death and destruction class". Where is the Red Star's voice on the more immediate issue? Which is more important right now: more homosexuals, or fewer violent criminals? Let's prioritize with common sense.

Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar has revealed herself to be vacuously clueless about the issue. Despite the fact that her, and others like her, have allowed and encouraged these sewer rats to come to Minnesota and run havoc and degrade our quality of life, she exhibits no self-reflection and offers no solutions:

"Some people go to Minnesota to come to the Mall of America to shop. He came to Minnesota to rob," Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar said.
Yes, Ms. Klobuchar, a lot of people come to Minnesota to rob. And rape. And kill.

What are you going to do about it?
