Post Maplewood Robbery, Beating Is Latest

Yet another woman has been beaten and robbed while walking around a Maplewood lake in the city park system. A number of people were beaten last year on the Lake Phalen park pathways, and gang members were arrested and sent to prison in some of those attacks.

You don't suppose it has anything to do with the boom in low income Section 8 housing that Maplewood has installed along formerly bucolic McKnight Road, do ya? It's done wonders to help Coon Rapids residents step up their evening strolls to a cardio workout sprint in hopes of avoiding young thugs bent on robbing them.

A walk around the marginal areas of St. Paul will me a more aerobic experience if you have a pound or two of steel on your hip, and a baseball bat in your hands.

BTW the following report is quite interesting. Bob Fletcher has decided that lots of Ramsey County Residents are a "Danger to Self or Others" look at how often that reason was used to deny a permit in Lake Phalen's host County

Reading elsewhere in this report, it's comical to see that Ramsey County takes a sizeable loss on what is otherwise typically a source of income for counties.
