A Bright Light No More

The more you read about the Uptown Murder victim, the more it breaks your heart. What a tragic waste. KARE 11 News gives further details:

Friends say that young man was destined to make a difference.

Back in 2003, when he was a student at Davis and Elkins, he briefed some students and professors about his summer work. He'd worked in a NASA lab at the Kennedy Space Center.

"It's a program that researches growing plants in space," Zehuhr told WBOY-TV at the time.

Last fall Zebuhr started working on his Ph.D. in bioengineering at Clemson University.

His adviser Lisa Benson says, for all his smarts it is his heart she'll remember most.

"He's the most likely person I think to reach out and help somebody in need and would be very likely to help the types of people that committed this crime," she said.

Zebuhr once drove a car full of clothes and appliances to a family in upstate South Carolina who were in need of help after Hurricane Katrina.

"He's just a poor graduate student, but he saw somebody worse off than he was and just freely gave of himself and his time," said Benson.

Stories like that don't make what happened in Uptown Minneapolis any easier.
Let's get these killers before they cause more damage. Let's shut down Somali gangs, any gangs, and drive the criminals into prison or out of our cities before the destruction becaomes irreversible.

It's easy to write Minneapolis off as the next Detroit, but that's giving in to the criminal scum. We can't let that happen. As Minneapolis goes, so goes the suburbs, and the state.

What are you going to do about this Mayor Rybak and Ms. Klobuchar?
