    MN - Bicyclists hit by motorist throwing chunks of concrete

    http://www.startribune.com/attacks-o...elp/321220981/

    Minneapolis police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a motorist who threw chunks of concrete or bricks at bicyclists in at least two neighborhoods on Friday, leaving one man with serious injuries.
    ...
    One person had minor injuries, but the second, identified on a ******** page as Mackenzie Jensen, was struck in the face and suffered multiple facial fractures that will require two surgeries. His jaw has been wired shut and he is expected to lose multiple weeks of work, the web page states.
    ...
    A short time before that incident, the same motorist is believed to have thrown cement material at someone else in the city’s Third Precinct
    ...
    Elder said that the suspect was driving an older white Ford vehicle, possibly a Bronco, and he was wearing a glove. It is believed he threw the material with his left hand.

    ================================================== =========
    It also appears that Minneapolis is exporting its concrete-throwing criminals to other areas:

    Seven young males from a Minneapolis basketball Amateur Athletic Union program were arrested and charged with misdemeanors in Wichita, Kan., after assaulting at least three homeless people in downtown Wichita over the weekend, police said.
    ...
    The assaults started with “people throwing rocks, bricks and chunks of cement,” said Wichita Police Department Public Information Officer James Espinoza. “A 32-year-old individual suffered injuries to his abdomen and his left arm and left leg. Another 48-year-old individual tried to leave the scene but suffered injuries to his head and cuts and scrapes above his left eye. A third individual on a bike tried to flee but was assaulted with rocks and knocked off his bike.”

    What in the world is WRONG with these people? This is only misdemeanor? I think it should be a hate crime.

    I am embarrassed to say I live in Minneapolis.

    “I think some of them were more onlookers than anything else,” he said. “I think it became kind of a mob-mentality thing. It sounds like they were bothering homeless people and filming it.”

    I don't know what is wrong with them, but there is something VERY wrong with people who would do this. They are not fit to live in civilized society.
