My guess would be to buy dope..phones are pretty easy to get ahold of.

Seller beware: Proposed sale allegedly ends in armed robbery
By Jana Peterson Today at 7:29 p.m.

An alleged armed robbery late Sunday in Cromwell came during a meeting that was arranged over the internet to sell either a mobile phone or marijuana — depending on which side is doing the explaining.

Skyler Roy Hakala, 19, of Cromwell was charged in State District Court in Carlton on Wednesday with three counts of first-degree aggravated robbery and for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Matthew Maurice Benson, 20, of Duluth was charged with three counts of aiding and abetting first-degree aggravated robbery — one charge for each of the alleged victims in the case.

The suspects were arrested by Duluth police officers later that night based on a vehicle description given by the victims.

According to the criminal complaint:

Carlton County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the Cromwell Pavilion just after 9 p.m. Sunday on a report of an individual being held up at gunpoint.

When Deputy Louis Dahlen arrived at the pavilion, the person who called in the robbery said he came to Cromwell with two acquaintances in order to sell his phone.

When he met the individuals, they held him up at gunpoint, with what he identified as a black and gold .44-caliber revolver, and took from him about $350 in cash and a wallet containing a bank card, military ID card and a social security card. A $200 vaping device was taken from another victim, along with $9 and a phone from a third victim.

The reporting victim described the clothing worn by the individuals, and he was able to identify them by name — because he had looked them up on Facebook before meeting them — adding that Hakala was the one who pointed the gun. The alleged assault occurred inside the reporting victim’s vehicle.

The victim said the two robbers left in a red Dodge pickup truck.

A computerized record check by law enforcement showed that Hakala’s father owned a red Dodge pickup truck, and Hakala’s phone location was “pinged” to a location in Cloquet. Officers were unable to find the vehicle in Cloquet, but a short time later the phone pinged again in Duluth.

A Duluth officer located the truck, identifying the occupants as Hakala and Benson, and placed both men under arrest. Both defendants were taken to the Carlton County Law Enforcement Center, where they both agreed to provide statements.

Authorities said Hakala admitted to committing the robbery but denied having a gun. Benson allegedly admitted to being at the scene but said he did not know there was going to be a robbery. He did allegedly confirm that Hakala had a gun. Both defendants stated they had gone to Cromwell for a marijuana transaction with the alleged victims.

Judge Leslie Beiers set bail Wednesday at $100,000 for Hakala and $40,000 for Benson.

A check of court records indicates that both men have had numerous run-ins with the criminal justice system, dating back to when they were juveniles.

Hakala’s adult record includes two convictions for second-degree assault and one for felony domestic assault. Benson’s history includes a convictions for third-degree riot, drug possession, trespassing, misdemeanor theft and obstruction of the legal process.

Both defendants are due back in court next Wednesday.

Punching white woman after yelling ‘I hate white people’ not hate crime, judge rules
By Andrew Stiles Published July 06, 2016 Heat Street

An indigenous woman in Calgary, Canada who yelled “I hate white people” before punching a white woman in the face and knocking her tooth out did not commit a racially motivated hate crime, a provincial court judge has ruled.

Judge Harry Van Harten’s written decision in the case argued that the motivation of the perpetrator, Tamara Crowchief, in the attack on the victim, Lydia White, was not related to racial bias.

The judge disagreed with the prosecutor’s argument that the unprovoked assault, which occurred in November 2015, rose to the level of a hate crime.

Van Harten said there wasn’t enough evidence to establish the claim that Crowchief attacked White because of her skin color, despite the fact that the perpetrator, who had never met the victims before the attack, yelled “I hate white people” before throwing a punch.

“There is no evidence either way about what the offender meant or whether … she holds or promotes an ideology which would explain why this assault was aimed at this victim,” the judge said.

I’m not a Trump fan, but he’s right. The “system” is rigged and not in your favor.

This is not petty larceny folks, this is considered espionage according to US Code.  I’m really, really surprised FBI’s Comey is letting this slide.  I hope the FBI agents investigating this revolt,  and don’t tell me there wasn’t a deal cut between Slick Willy and the detestable Loretta Lynch.  Bullshit.  I guess the Clinton Crime Foundation will continue for generations…its well funded and full of corruption, corruptible officials, and cover ups.  If the truth ever comes out, I’ll guarantee you this case was corrupted all the way to the Obama White house, his appointees, the DFL leadership and who knows who else.  Its simply disgusting and detestable behavior from “public servants” and the entities they represent.  At this point, what difference does it make?  Don’t believe me, look up the code yourself.

Suspects arrested after alleged gunpoint robbery in Cromwell
By Tom Olsen Today at 10:07 a.m.

Two men were arrested late Sunday after an alleged armed robbery in Cromwell.

The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office said the suspects were arrested by Duluth police officers based on a vehicle description given by the victims.
The robbery was reported at approximately 9 p.m. Sunday near the Cromwell Pavilion.

“The victims indicated that they were robbed at gunpoint by two individuals and that the suspects eventually left the area upon the completion of the robbery,” sheriff’s office investigator Dan Danielson said in a news release. “The victims had previously made arrangements with the suspects via the internet to meet at the pavilion to potentially complete a purchase. It was at the time the parties met to discuss the purchase that the robbery took place.”

Authorities did not disclose the number of victims or the nature of the planned purchase.

The suspects are a 19-year-old Cromwell man and a 20-year-old Duluth man. They’re being held in the Carlton County Jail on preliminary charges of second-degree aggravated robbery.

The Fond du Lac Police Department, Minnesota State Patrol and Cloquet Police Department also assisted in the investigation.

Some non politically correct humor. Happy Independence day to all.

The coal industry isn’t the only thing the liar in chief is destroying. Remember, he gave warning to what his agenda was…and if you voted for him, you are part of a larger problem.

Biggest private coal producer warns of cutting 80 percent of workforce, head blames Obama policies
Published July 02, 2016 The Wall Street Journal

Murray Energy Corp., the largest privately held coal miner in the U.S., has warned that it may soon undertake one of the biggest layoffs in the sector during this time of low energy prices.

In a notice sent to workers this week, Murray said it could lay off as many as 4,400 employees, or about 80% of its workforce, because of weak coal markets. The company said it anticipates “massive workforce reductions in September.”

The law requires a 60-day waiting period before large layoffs occur.

Layoffs ‘due to the ongoing destruction of the United States coal industry by President Barack Obama, and his supporters, and the increased utilization of natural gas to generate electricity’

– company statement
The American coal industry, especially in Appalachia, has languished as cheap natural gas replaces coal as fuel for power plants. World-wide demand for coal has also slumped, and new environmental regulations are making many coal mines unprofitable to operate.

The Central Appalachian coal price benchmark is $40 a ton, or half its level from five years ago. Almost all of the biggest coal producers in the U.S. have declared bankruptcy in the past 18 months, including Peabody Energy Corp., Arch Coal Inc. and Alpha Natural Resources Inc.

Robert Murray, the controlling owner of Murray, is a fierce opponent of President Obama and a supporter of Donald Trump. In a statement, the company said the potential layoffs were “due to the ongoing destruction of the United States coal industry by President Barack Obama, and his supporters, and the increased utilization of natural gas to generate electricity.”

The move came just a day after the United Mine Workers of America said it would reject a proposed new labor deal with Murray. The existing contract expires at the end of this year.

Phil Smith, a spokesman for the union, said the rejected deal is just a first step.

“Hopefully the coal market will come to the point where [the layoffs are] not necessary,” he said. “It’s no secret the coal market is bad right now.”

The UMWA represents about 3,000 Murray workers, half of whom have already been laid off.

Minnesota state trooper arrested for suspected DWI

An off-duty Minnesota state trooper took out several road signs and got his pickup truck stuck in a median before he was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving early Thursday in Fridley, according to court documents.

The trooper, Sgt. Chris Daas, was arrested by Fridley police at 3 a.m. Thursday. He was charged Friday afternoon in Anoka County District Court with refusal to submit to a chemical test and fourth-degree driving while impaired.

According to the criminal complaint, a 911 caller reported seeing a vehicle hit multiple road signs as it traveled west on Osborne Road in Fridley. The vehicle then turned south onto University Avenue, veered into the median and got stuck.

Fridley police officers arrived and found a pickup’s step plate in the median on Osborne and the damaged pickup itself stuck in the median on University. The citizen caller told police the pickup had been heading west in the eastbound lanes of Osborne before jumping the curb and hitting the street signs.

Officers talked to Daas and noted that he smelled like alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and dropped his driver’s license on the ground. Asked how much he had to drink, Daas said “too much,” an investigator wrote in the criminal complaint. He was taken into custody.

Daas, who serves out of the State Patrol’s Golden Valley office, has been a trooper since 2004. His record includes a lifesaving award, a meritorious service award and a letter of commendation. He was honored last year for pulling a woman from a burning car in Brooklyn Center.

He was also suspended for five days in 2011 following a conduct complaint. In 2008, he was named one of the patrol’s “DWI Enforcer All-Stars” for making 123 drunken driving arrests.

Col. Matt Langer, chief of the Minnesota State Patrol, called the incident “disturbing” in a statement Friday.

“Chris Daas’ alleged behavior does not reflect our core values as an organization, nor does it demonstrate our expectations for troopers, whether on- or off-duty,” Langer said.

Big Brother. Common sense cannot be taught or legislated. Wonder what its like living in a police state? Its here.

Disabled woman beaten bloody by TSA agents after becoming confused and afraid at security checkpoint

Hannah-CohenWREG-800x430

A disabled woman was beaten bloody by federal agents during an airport security screening while on her way to undergo treatment for a brain tumor.

Hannah Cohen set off the metal detector at a security checkpoint at the Memphis International Airport, and she was led away for additional screening, reported WREG-TV.

“They wanted to do further scanning, (but) she was reluctant — she didn’t understand what they were about to do,” said her mother, Shirley Cohen.

Cohen said she tried to tell agents with the Transportation Security Administration that her 19-year-old daughter is partially deaf, blind in one eye, paralyzed and easily confused — but she said police kept her away from the security agents.

The confused and terrified young woman tried to run away, her mother said, and agents violently took her to the ground.
“She’s trying to get away from them, but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor,” Cohen said. “There was blood everywhere.”

The young woman, who was returning home after finishing treatment for the brain tumor at St. Jude Hospital, was arrested and booked into jail.

Authorities eventually threw out the charges against Hannah Cohen, but her family has filed a lawsuit against Memphis police, airport police and the TSA.

Neither police department commented on the suit, but a spokesperson for the TSA said passengers should notify agents ahead of time if they have special needs.
“Passengers can call ahead of time to learn more about the screening process for their particular needs or medical situation,” said TSA spokesperson Sari Koshetz.
