Granted not everyone is physically capable of capturing a person one on one, but in a mall with a bunch of people, it amazes me how no one wants to get involved.
that's better . . .

I call it "The Herd Mentality"......as long as the jackels are feeding on one defenseless creature, the rest of the herd continues grazing.

Reuters Propaganda Headline: “Man Arrested After Boy Falls from Balcony”?….

Posted on April 13, 2019 by sundance This is infuriating…. Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda is charged with attempted homicide after throwing a random five-year-old boy from the third level of the Mall of America. How does Reuters present the story:



The Minnesota Mall of America is well known for danger and violence due to its proximity to a large Muslim population near Minneapolis. However, it is not politically correct to talk about it openly…. thus Reuters pulls out the cultural Marxist headline transcriber. Ridiculous.

Can't carry gas can into a mall. This example is why concealed carry works so much better.

Mall of the America's is covered by security cameras. There should be little doubt of what transpired. Sounds like the mother saw it as well. Kid will never be the same, likely has brain damage. This guy is a known bad actor, the mall is the deep pockets. If they get their *** sued off it might send a message. I wonder where the surveillance tapes are?

The “suspect” has committed numerous violent acts in the area and specifically at Mall of America over the years. He had been banned from the mall, but the ban expired. Maybe they’ll institutionalize him now?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/nation/2019/04/13/child-thrown-third-floor-balcony-by-stranger-mall-america-police-say/

The Mall of America had been open only 17 minutes Friday morning when the screaming started.

On the first floor, lying face up between an escalator and the Michael Kors store, was a 5-year-old boy. He had been thrown from three stories above — by a stranger, police say. There was blood; the boy was not moving.

The child’s mother asked everyone to pray, witnesses said, and security guards, patrons and police began performing CPR. The boy was rushed to a hospital with “significant injuries" from the 40-foot fall, authorities said, and was still being treated 24 hours later.

“That’s a pretty high fall,” Bloomington Police Chief Jeffrey Potts said at a news conference Saturday, describing the scene and his reaction to it. “Immediately, my thoughts were: How can something like this happen?”

Potts called the situation “horrific” and said the department was keeping the boy and his family in their “thoughts and prayers.” Because the family has asked for privacy, authorities are not yet releasing the name of the boy. Potts did not offer details about his condition.

“The child is still alive and receiving care,” he said.

Records show that Aranda has a history of assault and bad behavior at the Mall of America, a sprawling complex in the Twin Cities suburb of Bloomington, Minn., that hosts hundreds of retail stores, restaurants, an amusement park and aquarium and draws 40 million visitors a year.

Aranda has been banished from the mall in past years, though authorities said the trespassing holds had expired by Friday’s incident.

In July 2015, he was arrested at the Mall of America on three misdemeanor charges — property damage, disorderly conduct and interfering with a peace officer — after police say Aranda threw items from the upper level of the mall to the lower level. He had also swept his hand across a display table at the beauty store Bare Minerals, breaking lip gloss containers and shot glasses, police said.

Aranda was banned from the mall for one year.

A month later, in August 2015, Aranda told authorities he has “anger issues” when he was arrested on a felony property damage charge at the public library. Aranda had smashed five computers and keyboards “beyond repair" after he read something on Facebook that infuriated him, the man told authorities.

Then in October 2015, Aranda returned to the Mall of America again — in violation of his no-trespass order — and harassed and assaulted a woman inside a restaurant there, records show.

Aranda asked the woman to buy him something while they sat outside the restaurant, waiting for it to open. The woman laughed off the request, records show, and sat down inside. Aranda followed her inside, sat at the table beside her and continued his campaign. When management intervened, Aranda grew enraged. He tossed a glass of water in the woman’s face, then threw a glass of tea at her leg, shattering the cup.

He was arrested on six misdemeanor charges.

At the news conference Saturday, Potts said his police department had an additional encounter with Aranda, in which he refused to pay his bill at a restaurant.

Potts said some of Aranda’s past cases were handled through a mental health court, but would not comment further on the man’s mental health status at the time of Friday’s incident...
Misdemeanor? How the hell is this not attempted Murder?

The latter would probably be considered racist in some way. Seriously.

Throwing a tea glass at someone's leg is attempted murder?

Probably not. Looks like one of the species that was introduced in the 17th century.

You are not wrong. We have let the liberals have far too much power and now the animals are literally running loose. Liberalism is why we have the astonishing number of murders and gang violence we have as well as random acts such as this one. They do not want to eliminate the threat of these predators.

He's not crazy. Notice he threw the kid over the edge and not one of the adults present because they could fight back. Then he ran away.
