Minneapolis police have two scary crime sprees on their hands.
Minneapolis police, already grappling with a string of mob beatings downtown, now apparently have another scary crime spree on their hands.

Investigators believe the same two semi-automatic-handgun-brandishing men are responsible for 13 South Side armed robberies since March 21.

All but two of the incidents have occurred in an area bounded by Franklin Avenue on the north, Lake Street on the south, 15th Avenue on the east, and Portland Avenue on the west. One incident occurred in Uptown near 31st and Harriet, with another taking place a handful of blocks away at 23rd and Colfax.

According to KARE 11, in each case the suspects are a pair of black males, believed to be between the ages of 18 and 25. They've typically struck between 8:45 and 10:30 p.m. In some cases, they've driven off in a dark Dodge Stratus; in others, a tan "Ford Taurus-type" vehicle.

Unlike the downtown beat-down mobs, the south Minneapolis armed robbers are actually out to steal from their victims. The robbers have been taking whatever valuables their victims happen to have on them, including laptops and wallets.

If you have any information, police ask you to call 612-673-3702.

You are misunderstanding these people.  These people are innocent victims of racism.  They had to deal with thousands of years of slavery, and this is their comeback. They mean no harm.  They are just using their means of robbery as a way to to "balance the income inequality in this country".  Don't hate them.  They are doing what our politicians can't.

Why is it ok to identify the race of these perps/suspects when the media is silent on the race of the thugs running through downtown?

Downtown they are looking for suspects.  In this case they do have suspects which happen to be you black men.

 It's very interesting indeed.  What I find interesting is yet again the black race (since they like to be called all together) are seen in a bad light.

 They are all quick to call this a racist incident - all the brothers get together and protest - but where are they when crap like this happens?
