Minneapolis, spotshotter, and crime stats

I can’t access the old pages here for some reason, so here’s a new thread. 

Over at SH, I noted some markers around unrest back in the unruly 2020 time frame—thoughts that were received with little enthusiasm by most, and with outright hostility by many; present company excluded.

I think I remember posting that increased gang/cartel activity was coming to a few urban centers—including, and especially, Minneapolis—down the pike, because, reasons.  Which I had at the time. I also remember being reasonably specific as to the technical markers I was looking for.

So, in that spirit, I’ll just leave this here:


Happy Halloween.

What’s the theory on those? Stolen LE/military versions, or workshop modified semis?

It will be interesting to see how the MSP “abolish the police” voting goes tonight.

Peter, have you called your son to rub his nose in Younkin’s win yet?

No. Wife insists on not escalating and leaving him alone. And I can’t argue with that, he’s gotten me hooked up with where he works to do contract disaster relief field work for FEMA (no work yet but I’m cleared and in the system) and we had a lovely Halloween night at his girlfriend’s house so no reason to kick a sleeping dog. However, I am really tempted to buy and wear a fleece vest.

The theory is some brought in from South America, and some homemade workshop pieces, but I doubt if anyone knows for sure at the moment.
