Disaster Man arrested after five-year-old boy thrown from third floor at Mall of America -


Feels Betrayed
I think you are all missing the most important aspect of this case:

Was the kid black?

I remember when the Mall of Memphis used to be nicknamed the Mall of Murder

Still, there was crime. In September 1992, Louise Warren, shot in the stomach as she left her job in the mall, became the fifth person killed in five years as the result of a robbery at the mall. Perhaps even worse for the mall is the Memphis public tendancy to "broad stroke" problems - a few incidents and Memphians of all colors were afraid to be seen there. This just made it worse.

Some people did have their familes impacted by mall crime in a horrible way.
In 1984, Connie Johnson was found dead in her van at the Mall of Memphis - story this is an example of a crime that did not happen at the mall, but the van was abandoned there.
In 1992, a 71-year-old woman, a shop manager, was shot to death in the parking lot during a robbery attempt. Mike Blaekman, owner of the Hockey Stop, one of the shops in the mall, said: "My vehicle was stolen from this mall in 1998. An armored-car delivery service was robbed inside the mall."
Elson Turner said: "A couple of years ago, a guy killed his girlfriend next to where the drugstore used to be and killed himself in the hall right out here."
To fight crime, the Memphis police put a substation on the ground floor. Crime spotters with binoculars roamed the roof. Elevated guard shacks were installed in the parking lots, though they were removed long ago. That was a negative, because they reinforced shoppers' fears. An interesting sidenote is that mall security operated radios on 464.975 MHZ - Mall Security.

This says that he was angry that he was rejected by all of the women he hit on at the mall so this was another thing we can blame the incels for.

I used to be proud to live in Minnesota, now I look at our increasing Somali population and the slow decline of the Twin Cities and I start to fear Wisconsin will be better than us one day.
Don't worry, the total implosion of Detroit over the past decades has resulted in a mass exodus of Michigan hoodrat population to Milwaukee and other outlying towns in southeastern Wisconsin, so it's just a different, homegrown flavor of bad there.

Yeah, but Minneapolis got a mass of Chicago rejects who were double dipping (or worse) welfare in both cities.

How the hell wasn't he charged for attempted murder for throwing large objects off a balcony into a populated area? He could have easily killed someone on the ground floor throwing shit down at them. What sort of fagged out police force lets a piece of shit like this go walking around with two good knees?
The kind in a "woke" district with a growing moosey population. Duh.

I would imagine hundreds of people have been banned from MoA over the years for one thing or another, and highly doubt the mall cops have memorized every face on said list
As infamous in the general area and not just the mall itself as this guy is, unless they have mad turnover in their security dept, someone should have had him on their radar.

That said tho, the average mall sec department will have at least one big fat binder full of pictures of banned people. My last post had three. After a while perps all look the same unless they really do something to stand out.

I personally like the Somalis better than the white liberals in the cities tbh.

Depends on the Somali. The elders tend to be more amiable and hard working, their kids get ruined by our media and become spoiled brats causing trouble. They really don't understand how lucky they are to be in a country with a stable government, all the ills it may cause it certainly beats warlords fighting over territories.

Good news, sounds like the kid was very lucky and has no brain damage, swelling or spinal injuries. He had some internal bleeding and many broken bones including his cheek bones and injury to his nose.

The nig has been sentenced to 19 years in prison

A US man has been sentenced to 19 years in prison after pleading guilty to throwing a five-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony.

Emmanuel Aranda, 24, told police he went to Minnesota's Mall of America "looking for someone to kill", before choosing the boy, identified as Landen.

In a statement read in court on Monday, Landen's parents decried Aranda's act as one "intended to kill and destroy".

Landen survived the almost 40ft (12m) fall, but required multiple surgeries.

His parents described his recovery from head trauma and broken bones sustained in the 12 April attack as "miraculous". No further update on his condition was provided.

"I wish you could experience the pain and suffering you inflicted on my boy," Landen's parents said in a statement read by prosecutor Cheri Townsend on Monday.

"You should have the maximum punishment that this life has for you so you understand the impact of your actions."

Aranda pleaded guilty in May to one count of attempted premeditated murder as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

In court after his sentencing on Monday, Aranda declined to speak.

He had previously told investigators that he had made several unsuccessful attempts to talk to women in the Minnesota mall, but that their rejection "caused him to lash out and be aggressive", US media report.

He said he initially planned to kill an adult before choosing Landen instead.

Aranda had two past convictions for assault at the same mall, both in 2015, and had been banned from the area at an earlier date, according to CBS News, the BBC's US affiliate.

Court records show he was ordered to undergo psychological evaluation after those incidents.

Aranda's friends and family told US media that he had been in and out of treatment for a variety of mental health issues, including attention deficit disorder, depression, autism and schizophrenia. They said believed he was homeless before the attack.

At trial, Aranda's attorney did not raise a mental illness defence.
