MPD raided the basement of this deserted storefront in South Minneapolis.
Minneapolis police have cited 75 people and arrested a dozen in an early morning raid at an after hours club in south Minneapolis, including many people wanted on outstanding warrants for everything from narcotics to weapons charges.

Police also hauled away guns, and an assortment of drugs including crack cocaine, heroin, ecstacy, marijuana and pills, from the venue, MPD spokesman Sgt. William Palmer says. He had no details about the quantities involved.

A SWAT team moved on the deserted storefront at 3019 27th Avenue South at about 3:15 a.m.

EXCLUSIVE: Maurice and Terry Harrison's after-hours club had drugs, gambling, and strippers

The property, between a Post Office and a convenience store, had been under police surveillance for a couple of months, but some recent assaults allowed them to obtain a search warrant on the place.

The building, with boards or blinds covering its windows, is just a few blocks south from where Dean Schmitz was stabbed to death earlier this month.

I heard the cops had to wait fifteen minutes for the Govenor, Mayor and Senator Klobuchar to leave before the cops made the arrests.

I love how you guys use a Google Street View picture from who knows how long ago instead of just sending a photographer over there. Money's tight. I know, I know.

Maybe because Hart took them himself. Perhaps you want to thank him?

So they raided it because of some near by assaults? Isn't it right around the corner from a police station? Will they be raiding the cop shop next?

Yeah I heard someone call this a RAVE. Gives RAVERS a bad name. No self respecting RAVER would be caught at a storefront booze and crackfest.

anyone who knows the area knows exactly what kind of party this was, it was definitely not a rave

Funny, I used to work a couple blocks from there.  You could buy gold chains in the drive through of McDonalds just to the east on Lake."3:15 a.m. after police had it under surveillance for a couple of months."So how many crimes were committed by these idividules while "under surveillance" by the cops during these months?Much like the DEA.  So hows that "war on drugs" going after 30+ years, and trillions of dollars.  Are we winning yet?The games they play with our tax dollars.  If they truely were proactive, and eliminated the crime in which they fight, they would be out of a job.  See where I'm going?

That is one scary ass party, when the SWAT kicks in the door!  87 people in one place, who were all in violation of the law, and were arrested?

Holy shit someone has hacked kirk's computer.  That was the first sensible thing I've heard him say.

This is all a sophisticated hallucination. Call 911; tell them you're having a stroke.

Sometimes he's right on, like this time. The problem is he's such an ass-hole, usually effective communication becomes impossible. In order for two parties to communicate effectively they must be on the same level.

It really proves how obviously futile the war on drugs is if even kirk can see it.

Wooohooo the day has come!  Kirk I agree with every part of your statement!  Good job!  Now I cordially invite you to my party for immigrants and welfare recipients, where we will all sit around and talk about what it is exactly that makes Obama great.  Whaddya say pal, will ya be there?!

Sounds like a rager.

I'm trying to bring back the term "rager". How am I doing?

I'm in college and I refer to parties as "ragers" all the time so you're totally hip, no worries.

"Rager" is all right, but it makes it sound like there are a lot of angry people there (which I'm sure there are, but you don't want to advertise it).  When I was a young chap, we used to drive out to deserted fields to have "wailers." But not "whalers," which is a much-hailed but extinct hockey team.
