Kevin Mims is charged with killing Brian Nelson after being called "cheap."
Kevin Mims spent Sunday night out with the guys. At the end of the night, he stabbed two of the men, one of them fatally, after a drunken argument, according to charges filed yesterday by the Hennepin County Attorney's office.

The argument was apparently about Mims' being stingy about weed and money, with two of his friends razzing him for being too cheap, according to the complaint. Mims slugged one of them, and put him in a sleeper hold. When another tried to break it up, Mims stabbed both of  them, killing Brian Nelson and wounding another man.

Mims was arrested near the scene of the homicide at the downtown parking ramp on Logan Avenue, and admitted to police he'd stabbed the two men with a scissors.

Originally, Mims told police that he someone else came at him with a scissors, and he wrestled it away and used it to defend himself. When police told him that story didn't make any sense, Mims admitted he was the one wielding the scissors.

Nelson was killed by only two stab wounds, one of which went right into his heart.

Mims is charged with second-degree murder in Nelson's death, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison. For stabbing the other man, who received stitches for a cut to his arm, Mims is charged with second-degree assault, a charge with a maximum penalty of seven years in prison and a $7,000 fine.

To my understanding this chaos started over Mims “beingcheap with his marijuana and money”?  Istill don’t understand how this could have possibly led to become a seconddegree murder. Two men ended up being stabbed with a scissors, but whathappened with the third man? Nothing, I continue to ask myself why thiswas.  If this man was a vicious murdererand his intent was to kill someone that night why would he only attack two ofhis friends?

I came to a conclusion with myself and realized there had tobe more to this story. What really went down that night between those fourmen?  If this was a dispute over ‘drugsand money’ which man did the drugs belong to and what provoked them to argue?Either this was a drug deal gone wrong or a robbery gone wrong. This soundslike a conundrum.

Like guns, scissors now need a liberal movement to ban them.  They're just so dangerous!!!!It's like the wild west with scissors says the liberal fool.   Oh, and think of all the kids that already have their hands on them.  Mr Rybak, PLEASE have a unanimous cash for scissor trade in program.
