Your tax dollars hard at work…almost $1 million a year to house one ward of the state. Seems a tad excessive, don’t you think?

COON RAPIDS, MInn. (KMSP) – People living in a Coon Rapids, Minnesota neighborhood wondered what was happening to the blue house on the corner lot.

It was in rough shape after going into foreclosure a few years back, but a buyer came along and made several improvements including shatter proof windows, a remodeled kitchen and even a sauna.

But, the new owner didn’t move in, instead he rented the place out for the next five years to the State of Minnesota.

Only one person lives in this three-bedroom home in Coon Rapids, Minnesota and state employees come and go around the clock. 1 person, 1 home, millions of dollars
One person lives in the three bedroom home and state employees come and go around the clock. There are at least three per shift and they are hired to support the needs of the lone occupant.

“They really don’t need a house this size for one person,” neighbor Bob Krahn said.

The Fox 9 Investigators discovered it is costing taxpayers almost a million dollars a year.

An 18-year-old man, whose initials are W.O., was placed in the home last summer.

W.O. is a ward of the state, has intellectual and developmental disabilities and a history of difficult behavior.

“Handled the right way it’s a good thing for a neighborhood because we need to see people of all abilities,” Lemoyne Corgard, a neighbor, said.
Since last July, at least 45 calls to police have come from the address.

Police reports describe what happens inside of the home. In one incident an employee reported W.O. was “becoming violent, destroying property. Staff had locked themselves inside an office.”

A few days later another worker called 911 to alert police that W.O. had kicked open the secured front door and tried to run away.

Krahn said this happened as he was playing with his granddaughter in his front yard.

“He was screaming and yelling at them and smashed the lights above the garage door and telling them he was going to kill them,” recalled Krahn. “He took a swing at one of the guys and they took him down. And then the next thing I know they had two or three squad cars, a fire truck and an ambulance there.”

In October, police were called again because staff reported W.O. “was armed with a broken piece of glass, was destroying the house, and out of control.”

“We’ve got like a ticking time bomb and just wondering when it’s going to explode,” neighbor Garry Anderson said.

The risk of violent behavior is why at least three people are with W.O. every hour of the day and night. The cost is about $910,000 a year.

DHS explains

“Well, it’s definitely a lot of money. I would say that our obligations are to insure that we’re giving people with disabilities an opportunity to live in the community, to meet the court and legal requirements, that we have to do that and all the time be balancing that with our role of being a good steward of taxpayer dollars,” said Chuck Johnson, deputy commissioner at the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

In the past, people like W.O. were warehoused in large institutions. It was more cost effective, but a horrible way to live. Drugs, mechanical restraints and other harsh techniques were used to keep them under control.

A lawsuit against the state put an end to that kind of treatment. Minnesota moved away from using large institutions in favor of smaller, community based, group homes.

“I think there’s clear and convincing evidence from the research that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities do have better lives when they’re living in the communities,” said Amy Hewitt from the Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota.

Many of Minnesota’s group homes are privately operated but the Department of Human Services is still in the business of running 119 of them. Currently, 396 people live in those state operated homes. According to DHS, the yearly cost is $83 million or about $210,000 on average per individual.

But, the Fox 9 Investigators discovered seven of those properties have just one person in them. These individuals have very complex needs and require a lot of attention, according to DHS.

“Our hope is that we can stabilize that individual to a point where we can get them into a more cost effective setting,” said Johnson.

The average annual cost to staff each of those seven homes is $885,000.

Legislative auditor investigating

Minnesota’s legislative auditor, Jim Nobles, is now investigating and will update law makers on his findings later in February.

“I’d rather wait until our report is out, but there are very expensive cases in our analysis. We’ve isolated those and tried to find out what’s behind those high costs,” Nobles said.

The highest costs typically coincide with the most challenging cases like W.O.

DHS told the Fox 9 Investigators it’s working on being a good neighbor, trying to mitigate the number of 911 calls.

If disruptions continue, the department does have the option to move W.O. to another location.

Officials at DHS said they are seeing more of the complex cases and there is also a tremendous shortage of qualified staff to work with these individuals.

Another elected official that needs to be removed from office. Disgusting.

Wapato Officer Michael Campos Sues Mayor For $1.5 Million After Mayor Calls For His Execution

Wapato Police Officer Michael Campos Is Suing The Mayor

Wapato, WA – Wapato police officer Michael Campos has filed a $1.5 million dollar lawsuit against Mayor Tony Guzman. The lawsuit comes in response to comments made by Mayor Guzman in the days following what was later ruled a justified shooting of a domestic violence suspect involving officer Campos.

Several fellow officers have come to Campos’ defense, worried for his safety due to the Mayor’s comments. The city has until Feb. 7th to respond to the lawsuit.

The shooting happened when Wapato police officer Michael Campos and Sergeant Larry Ehrhardt responded to a domestic violence call on July 31, 2016 around 8:15 PM.

The officers got in to a confrontation with Mario Martinez Torres, 38, after arriving at the home on West 2nd. During a struggle in a small bathroom in the home, Torres attempted to disarm officer Campos and gained control of his taser. Reports show that Torres then shot Sgt. Ehrhardt with the taser and Campos, fearing for their safety, fired on Torres.

Family members and Torres’s girlfriend, a Wapato councilwoman, were present in the home and argued against the officer’s accounts. According to the Yakima Herald both officers were cleared of any wrongdoing by the Yakima County Prosecutor’s Office and the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office. Mayor Guzman, however, was not satisfied and pushed for a federal investigation. By his own account, Mayor Guzman was a friend of the suspect and knew Torres ‘since he was a baby.’

Just days after the shooting Mayor Guzman made a fiery post on Facebook directed toward officer Campos. “…What a f***ing piec of s**t!! I hope they prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law!! He deserves to die in prison!! To MURDER someone in such a calus manor deserves to be in prison!!! If not executed for murdering him in front of his family!!!….You are a disgrace to the Wapato PD…” it read. When confronted with the post, they mayor replied, “Do I regret posting it? No. Should I have worded it different? Yes.”

Interim police chief Dave Simmons wanted to return Campos to work much sooner than January 5th, the date when he ultimately returned, but he received push back from the mayor and calls for multiple investigations in to the shooting.

In October, Mayor Guzman said he spoke with Simmons on returning Campos to duty. “Let me put it this way, I spoke to Simmons last week. He told me he was bringing Campos back and I said I think that’s a big mistake,” Guzman said. “If he does, he’ll have to deal with it. And if the family shows up at my office, I will walk them across the street (to Simmons’ office) and he can deal with it.”

Simmons responded to the Mayor, saying he was being unreasonable. “I understand that the community is hurting and the family is hurting, and I feel for the community and the family that suffered the loss,” Simmons said. “On the other side of it is Officer Campos was cleared. We have the responsibility to protect an employee and safeguard his rights.”

Campos did return to work and has been working in a detective position to re-acclimate. Many fellow officers and Campos now fear for his safety since returning. According to the suit brought against the Mayor, his comments have created a hostile work environment for Campos. If the city chooses to ignore the suit, Campos will sue the city directly, according to his attorney

The comments spoken by the Mayor are a disgrace to his position. We hope to see justice on behalf of Officer Michael Campos.

Its planned and financed by the loony left fringe anarchists. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if BHO was orchestrating the entire thing to disrupt the Trump administration..

David Horowitz Slams Janet Napolitano After UC-Berkeley Riot: ‘They Encourage This’

Thursday, 02 Feb 2017 10:46 PM

Conservative commentator David Horowitz lashed out Thursday at University of California-Berkeley President Janet Napolitano in the wake of a violent campus riot that forced the cancellation of a speech by provocative Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
In an interview with Fox News’ Lou Dobbs, Horowitz, the author of the best-selling “Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America,” slammed the former secretary of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama for providing “sanctuary” on campus to illegal immigrants, calling it a “violation of the Patriot Act.”

“They encourage this,” Horowitz said of the protest. “Why weren’t people arrested? I can’t go to campuses without bodyguards.”

“They all need to be prosecuted,” he added.
“Sure, defund them – make them pay,” Horowitz said, referring to President Donald Trump’s response to the mayhem.
Horowitz said “the one good thing” that’s happened is that “with the election of Trump, now we have an attorney general who’ll investigate.”

“They are fascists,” Horowitz said of the protesters. “Throw them in jail. That’s where they belong.”

Horowitz’s book – which has earned praise from Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Dinesh D’Souza and other leading conservatives – is the first major tome to be released on Trump’s presidency.

“This is an administration under siege,” Horowitz told Dobbs.

“We have a seditious democratic party that is destroying the American electoral system. We have actresses calling for a military coup, we have Democrats sabotaging an incoming administration, and a State Department leaking presidential conversations. It’s a mess.”

And you wonder why President Trump wants to slow immigration?

Flashback 2016: Somali Refugee Attacked 9 in Minnesota, Another Attacked 11 in Ohio

Meet Dahir Adan, Minnesota’s ‘Soldier of the Islamic State’Facebook

Somali refugee Dahir Adan attacked nine Americans with a knife at a mall in St. Cloud, Minn. before an off-duty police officer shot and killed him on Sept. 17, 2016.
Two months later Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan attacked 11 Americans with a knife and then a car on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus before a campus police officer shot and killed him on Nov. 28, 2016.

All 20 Americans survived.

The 2016 attacks were further evidence that many of the more than than 101,000 Somali refugees who have been resettled in the United States since 2001 (according to the Department of State’s interactive website) have not assimilated well in their new country.

On Jan. 27, President Trump signed an executive order that temporarily stopped the issuance of visas to citizens of seven Middle Eastern and North African countries, one of which is Somalia. (The others are Syria, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen.) The executive order also temporarily banned refugees from all countries from arriving in the United States.

Minneapolis has the largest Somali community in the United States, with an estimated total of 70,000. Columbus has the second-largest Somali community in the country, estimated to total between 45,000 and 55,000.
Adan, the Minnesota mall attacker, arrived in the United States in the 1990s with his father and other members of his family when he was 2 years old. They were initially resettled in Fargo, N.D., but moved to the St. Cloud area several years ago.

Adan’s brother, Abdullahi Adan, is currently jailed in Fargo on drug charges.

Artan, the Ohio State attacker, arrived in Dallas in June 2014 with his mother and seven siblings, as Breitbart News reported previously:

Catholic Charities of Dallas has confirmed that they provided “shelter, clothing, and other basic humanitarian services for a short time in 2014” to “an individual whose name matches the name of [an Artan] family member.” That assistance began on June 5, 2014, when the family arrived at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport, from Pakistan via JFK Airport in New York. It continued for 23 days until June 28, 2014, when the entire family departed for Columbus, Ohio.

Artan, his mother, and siblings lived in Pakistan for several years, where they, like most of the Somali refugees who are living there temporarily, were unable to obtain asylum and secure permanent resident status.

“Pakistan is not as welcoming of Somali refugees as is the United States. The unanswered part of the question is why the United States has not asked Pakistan to be more welcoming of Somali refugees,” as Breitbart reported previously:

“Somalis living in Pakistan have limited rights mainly because Pakistan has not ratified the 1951 UN Refugee Convention. They are not eligible to take up permanent residence here; they cannot do any business or move around the country freely. Unless they are registered as refugees with UNHCR [the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees], their stay in Pakistan remains illegal, ” according to The Herald.

Pakistan is a country of 192 million, almost all of whom (96 percent) are Muslim.

The small Somali community in Pakistan, estimated to number between 400 and 4,000 in total, is almost entirely Muslim. More than 99 percent of the 100,009 Somali refugees who have arrived in the United States since 2002 (99,672 in total) are Muslim, according to the Department of State’s interactive website, while about one percent of Americans are Muslim, according to Pew Research.

“Somali refugees are the most difficult to deal with. They are easily manipulated towards criminal activities, making it difficult to negotiate with them at times,” according to a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees official working in Pakistan, who spoke with the Express Tribune in 2012.

It is unclear why Obama administration Department of Homeland Security officials approved Artan and his family for acceptance into the federal refugee resettlement program in 2014, as Breitbart reported:

Many of the Somali refugees who live [in Pakistan] wish to emigrate to the United States or another country in the West. Very few of them are approved by the United States Citizenship Immigration Services (USCIS) to participate in the federal refugee resettlement program.

Breitbart News has asked the USCIS what uniquely qualified Abdul Razak Ali Artan, his mother, and six siblings to be accepted into the federal refugee resettlement while many other Somali refugees living in Pakistan have not been accepted. USCIS has not responded to the inquiry.

“This seven-year stay in Pakistan by Artan and his family seems very fishy to me. Pakistan is a safe haven for Muslim refugees. The refugee camps there are also well-known breeding grounds for Islamic terrorism,” Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch tells Breitbart News.

A number of other Somali refugees have been involved in crimes reported recently in the national press.

Somali refugee Mohamed Hari Ayanle, recently arrived in the United States, was charged with criminal sexual misconduct in December. The alleged crime took place on a bus traveling between Minneapolis and Grand Forks, N.D.

In 2015, “Minnesota authorities charged Somali man Ahmed Hersi Abdi with two first-degree sexual misconduct for allegedly raping a 10-year-old girl in her apartment.”

Six young Somalis in Minnesota: “Abdullahi Yusuf, Zacharia Abdurahman, Hanad Musse, Abdirizak Warsame, Adnan Farah and Hamza Ahmed — have pleaded guilty to conspiring to travel to Syria to join ISIS,” Minnesota Public Radio reported in May.

“[T]hree remaining suspects [arrested by the FBI]— Guled Omar, 21; Abdirahman Daud, 22; and Mohamed Farah, 22 — are set to stand trial … on charges including conspiring to provide material support to ISIL and to commit murder abroad,” MPR added.

“U.S. District Court Judge Michael Davis didn’t sugarcoat his words … as he sentenced three Minnesota men on terrorism charges,” KSTP reported in November:

“This was a jihadi cell,” Davis said firmly to the entire courtroom. “Everyone talks about Brussels or Paris having a cell; we have a cell in Minneapolis.”

In the spring of 2014, a group of friends in Minnesota’s large Somali community began inspiring and recruiting each other to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State. Some succeeded in making the trip, but others didn’t.

Nine men were prosecuted. Six of them pleaded guilty, and the other three went to trial in May.

The three suspects who went to trial – Omar, Daud, and Farah – were found guilty of “conspiring to support a foreign terrorist organization and to commit murder abroad” in June.

The critics either don’t care or simply don’t understand why gun free zones turn into shooting galleries.

Wyoming House passes bill that does away with gun-free zones in schools
Brandon Morse Feb 2, 2017 7:40 pm

On Wednesday, the Wyoming House of Representatives passed House Bill 194 in a landslide vote of 46-14.

The nature of the bill, known as “The School Safety and Security Act,” is such that it would allow school districts decide whether or not they would allow their employees to carry on school grounds, provided they have a concealed carry permit.

The bill found opposition from both sides of the argument, with anti-gun legislators stating that guns have no place in schools, and those who didn’t think the law went far enough, as it still allowed school districts to refuse to allow firearms on campus by legal carriers.

“I support Second Amendment rights, but I cannot support anything that puts guns in schools,” said Democrat Debbie Bovee.

Wyoming isn’t the only state seeking to eliminate school gun-free zones. The state of Kentucky is also taking steps with Republican Rep. Thomas Massie taking the lead with the “Safe Students Act.” Florida Senator Greg Steube is also looking to end gun-free zones in schools as well with Senate Bill 140.

While The School Safety and Security Act passed the Wyoming House with flying colors, legislators believe that the chances of it passing in the Senate are slim. Regardless, the bill’s primary sponsor, Rep. John Eklund, believes that this is a great way to see a brighter future for gun rights, stating “If we’re trying to get full rights, this will kind of crack the door open.”

As House Bill 194 works its way through Wyoming’s system, two other pro-gun bills are making headway as well. House Bill 136 has also been passed which allows anyone with a concealed carry permit to legally possess a firearm on university campuses. Also passed was House Bill 137, which removes gun-free zone laws from government meetings.

I would sure like to think our Attorney General has better things to do that use her office to push her partisan liberal agenda. What a hack.

Minnesota AG Swanson joins suit against Trump’s immigration order

Politics Cody Nelson · Feb 1, 2017
Updated: 9:04 p.m. | Posted: 8:40 p.m.

Lori Swanson, Minnesota’s attorney general, has joined a lawsuit alleging that President Trump’s recent immigration order is unconstitutional and should not be enforced, her office announced Wednesday night.

Washington state attorney general Bob Ferguson filed the suit Tuesday. The complaint, filed in U.S. district court, seeks an expedited hearing within 14 days.

Ferguson and Swanson are both Democrats.

• More: Read a copy of the lawsuit

The executive order’s temporary ban on all refugees and immigration restrictions has “immediate and significant effects in Minnesota,” the lawsuit reads.

Swanson noted the many foreign-born Minnesotans, plus the thousands of others who’re from the several Muslim-majority countries whose residents aren’t allowed to enter the U.S. for 90 days.

• Related: Who are Minnesota’s refugees?

“These Minnesotans now face considerable uncertainty about whether they may travel overseas or whether relatives may visit or move here,” the lawsuit said.

Trump’s immigration ban aims to make the country safer, the White House said.

“In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles,” the order reads.

The order indefinitely bars Syrians from entering the U.S. It also puts a 90-day ban on refugees and nearly anyone from six other Muslim-majority countries — including Somalia.

Last year alone, 1,405 Somali refugees arrived in Minnesota, according to State Department data. The state took in more than 3,000 refugees from 25 nations in 2016, federal data show.

Trump’s order bans all refugees for four months.

Swanson’s portion of the lawsuit also said the order is burdensome to the state’s universities and economy.

The lawsuit also says that travel plans to and from Minnesota were affected by the order, citing the story of a 4-year-old Somali girl who was separated from her family after being born in a refugee camp.

She was scheduled to reunite with her family on Monday, but was stopped at an airport in Uganda and not allowed into the U.S. because of the executive order, according to the lawsuit.

Hump day feel good story.

Firefighter adopts the baby girl he was forced to DELIVER on a late-night emergency call

Firefighter Marc Hadden delivered baby Grace on an emergency call
Grace was immediately put up for adoption and Marc and his wife Beth filed to adopt her the next day
Beth was told she would not be able to have any more children after her two sons

A Myrtle Beach, South Carolina firefighter did not expect he would have to act as a midwife when he was called to an emergency on a seemingly normal November evening.

He expected even less that he would become a father to a daughter that night.  Marc Hadden said there was no time for him to get the mother in labor to the hospital when he responded to an emergency call.

He told WMBF : ‘It was just a somewhat normal call. Very quickly we realized that it was going to be a life changer for us.’  Hadden is not a doctor, but ended up helping the mother deliver a beautiful baby girl who was immediately put up for adoption.  Hadden’s wife Beth decided the baby, named Grace, fell into their life by fate.

The couple signed adoption papers and took Grace into their home 48 hours later.

Beth said: ‘Ever since we had the boys, we knew that we wanted more children, but I was preterm with them so we knew that it wasn’t possible to have any more babies.’

Grace’s mother put her up for adoption immediately after she was born
Her adopted father, Marc Hadden had never delivered a baby before

‘And we had it in our minds and in our hearts for years to adopt and we just left it in God’s hands. We said if it’s meant to be, it will be.’

Grace grew the Hadden’s family of four into a family of five that fateful night.

Beth said: ‘As soon as we signed the papers I looked a Marc and went, “Oh my gosh, we have to pay for a wedding.” I was like, that was my first thought? I guess just having a girl is so different after having two boys.’

Friends and family were touched by the couple’s adoption and pitched in money to extend their house to add on a room for Grace.

Marc said: ‘I don’t know what we would have done because we have definitely outgrown our home. So we’re just truly blessed to have friends that will pull together for us like this.’

Couple allegedly drove to Duluth for sex with 14-year-old
By Tom Olsen Today at 6:00 p.m.


Kayla Marie Frank and Phillip James Adkins
A couple allegedly drove to Duluth from the St. Cloud area on Friday with the intention of having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl they had met online.

Criminal charges filed Tuesday in State District Court also indicate that Phillip James Adkins, 34, and Kayla Marie Frank, 33, sent the teen a series of lewd photos, videos and messages through Facebook before arranging the meeting.

Adkins and Frank, who live in Rice, Minn., were arrested at a West Duluth motel on Friday evening after Duluth Police Department investigators were alerted to the planned meeting. They allegedly admitted that they had traveled to Duluth with the purpose of having sex with the teen, who they knew to be 14.

Both suspects are charged with a felony count of electronic solicitation of a child. Adkins also faces an additional count of soliciting a child to engage in sexual conduct.

Each charge carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison.

Authorities said they opened the investigation after receiving information that Adkins and Frank were exchanging communication of a sexual nature with the girl through Facebook. The source of that information was not specified.

Investigators were able to obtain access to the girl’s account and learned that she and Adkins began communicating on Jan. 5. The messages were initially just general conversation, but progressed to become “extremely sexual,” according to a criminal complaint.

On Jan. 13, Adkins allegedly suggested that he and Frank show the teen “how to be sexually intimate with another person.” That same day, he sent the girl two nude photographs and four videos that showed him engaged in a sexual act with Frank, the charges state.

Investigators said the Facebook conversations continued in the following weeks, with Adkins encouraging the teen to become friends with Frank. The messages allegedly turned “extremely graphic and sexual with offers from Defendant Frank to show (the victim) how to be sexually intimate with someone.”

Both defendants allegedly had conversations with the teen about taking her and “stealing her away from her family.” Investigators said Frank wrote that she “knew that they would get into trouble but that she would figure out a way to make it happen.”

On Friday, Adkins and Frank traveled to Duluth and told the victim that they planned to be at the Super 8 motel, 4100 W. Superior St., by 5 p.m., according to the complaints. Investigators verified that the couple had a reservation there and waited in the lobby for them to arrive, arresting both on site.

Adkins allegedly admitted to police that he had sent the videos to the girl, who he knew to be 14, and had come to Duluth to have sex with her. He acknowledged that it was wrong and asked for help, according to the complaint.

Frank also confirmed that she had been exchanging messages with the girl, who she knew to be 14, the charges state. She allegedly admitted that the relationship had been started through Facebook and that they had traveled to Duluth to engage in sexual intercourse with the teen.

Frank remains on probation following a 2016 conviction for child neglect or endangerment in Sherburne County. Senior Judge Dennis Murphy set her bail at $20,000 with conditions or $200,000 without.

Adkins, who does not have any significant criminal history, had bail set at $10,000 with conditions or $100,000 without.

Both defendants are due back in court on Feb. 22.

Maybe the rule of law and Constitutionality will matter once again.

While former President Bill Clinton’s 1995 speech on illegal immigration got a standing ovation when he used the same talking points as Republican nominee Donald Trump, Trump’s Arizona speech Wednesday got him called a racist.

Clinton gave a State of the Union address where he said all Americans were disturbed by the amount of illegal immigrants in the country. He noted the burdens they put on the tax payers before vowing to crack down aggressively.

“That’s why our administration has moved to aggressively secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as every before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens,” Clinton said.

Clinton received a standing ovation for his remarks.
