I saw several "zombies*" urinating publicly in city center ramp as well as a female "zombies*" defecating between cars in the same ramp...it's a simple case of "look at me" narcissim run amok.....*idiots/ shameless pigs


REALLY? Let's make a day for a bunch of drunks walking the streets of Mpls!! It's not enough that they have 2  stand outside of bars to smoke!! OMG!! PATHETIC!  Funny how they push for ppl to not smoke, but drinking,NOT A PROBLEM!!
