#1 ...delivering a guilty verdict that immediately sparked questions about whether race played a role.

I'm thinking it did. Next would be a civil lawsuit charging that the hiring acts and best practices were intentionally lowered or even waived in order to give this guy a job. Also interesting would be discovery of everyone involved in the application and hiring process of Calamity Noor.

#2 MN is one of only 3 states that defines 3rd degree murder (others PA and FL).

#3 Media here is refusing to discuss the insane choice to let this turd skate by with one third the training and his failed psyche example. The former mayor and police chief the primary drivers of letting this Muz loose. Also left out is his complaints by two other women.

Because he's
1. Black
2. Somalian
3. A muzzie.

The liberal protected class trifecta.

#4 This John Thompson character is just stirring the you-know-what. My experience with Somalis is that they *don't* integrate into the larger American black population for a variety of reasons (some quite understandable). In return, the traditional black population mostly considers them "other" in return. So, no: outside of the activist class, most black people aren't going to care about this IMO.

Partly because they, like Arabs and Ethiopians, consider themselves suntanned Caucasians, not black. Though in America they'll accept the black label when jostling for perks.

Sure. I would too, given the situation. I meant more that they were typically sober and hardworking with largely intact families. I got a straight-outa-Rantburg rant from a Somali cab driver in Columbus that would put a smile on the face of everyone here.

BTW not saying that many black Americans aren't these things as well (sober, hardworking, etc). Just that poor Midwestern urban areas often contain people who aren't, and I think Somalis want to be separate from that if possible.

#7 2015: Feds' relocation of Somali refugees stresses Minn. welfare, raises terror fears
Even though Minnesota has a good job market, that doesn’t seem to have translated into jobs for the Somali refugees. Minnesota’s state demographer’s office reports that only 41 percent of Somali men are working and 54 percent of Somali women are employed, meaning many may rely on the state’s handouts to survive, and are more susceptible to extremists pull.

Doesn't look that way to me in Indiana and Ohio - though my knowledge is anecdotal, not statistical.

#9 At what point to we recruit a bunch of them for a Somali liberation army and train them to take back their country and restore order? Or do we just assume refugees and failed states are forever?

And yet, Secret Master, they elected Ilhan Omar.

Who doesn't exactly sound like Jessie Jackson or Elijah Cummings. Just saying: not the same group of people, for better or worse.

Meaning they're working, but off-the-books?

#13 Meaning they're working, but off-the-books?

Could be. I mentioned to an old friend of mine - a veteran cabbie of many years - that the Somali cab drivers in Columbus and Indianapolis seemed to be giving way to Ugandans and Kenyans. He thinks that the Somali's have either moved up to working for Lyft and Uber, or have made enough to move up the economic ladder to shopkeepers and the like. Which is pretty much the American was of things IMO.

#14 IIUC - If they book enough $ they buy their own car and get out of leasing a car from a cab company (which is expensive). Cab medallions mean shit now with Uber and Lyft

That’s wonderful to hear, Secret Master. The more who are happy to be good citizens, the shallower andless hospitable the ocean in which the jihadis can swim.
