…then people will do it for themselves. That is not always a good thing.
Last week, Minneapolis was briefly roiled at the story of three black teenagers who died when their car rolled during a police chase.
The roiling muted a bit when it got out that the teens who were just on the brink of getting their lives together had just beaten the dritt out of a 72 year old woman to steal her car.
Pictures capture the marks left on a 72-year-old woman’s face after she was the victim of a carjacking in north Minneapolis.
It’s an experience Schlee says has also left a mark on her aunt’s overall well being.
“They punched her and knocked her to the ground to get her purse. They took off in their car, got halfway down the alley, realized they had the keys to her car backed up and she was standing up by now they got back out, hopped in her car,” said Schlee.
Schlee says her aunt’s car is the one Minneapolis police were chasing through north Minneapolis early Monday morning, with three teenagers inside.
All three teenagers in the car died when they lost control and crashed. Schlee says her aunt had been in the area near Dowling Ave. N, taking care of a relative’s cat.
The story didn’t get much coverage, but it did at least same some of the usual outrage hustlers into shutting up for once.
This is DFL rule in MInneapolis. Or anywhere, really.
