Gang Robbery With Violence In Minneapolis

The Minneapolis Police SAFE Unit has issued a Robbery Alert, but unfortunately with few details. The details they include, however, are troubling:

SAFE Precinct 5, Sector 2

On 6/13/2006 at about 10:23 pm a reported Robbery of Person Aggravated (with weapon) took place near and in Painter Park. 3 victims were robbed during this event. I do not know if the victims were together, separate or even knew each other.

Here is the Public Information from this incident;

“Victims were robbed at gun point by a group of approximately 10-12 black male teen Suspects. The loss was cells phones and cash. Victims were struck several times by the suspects. Suspects were goa. Victims declined medical attention and were given blue cards.”
"10-12 black male teens" is a significant amount of criminals in one group committing robberies. Armed or not, you don't have a chance against those odds.

Again, the Mad Max movies come to mind, with anarchy and roving bands of sociopaths wreaking havoc on society.

What's next for Minneapolis? I can hardly wait.
