This blog thread posted by the Irving Inquisition uses some explicit language, as well as depicting some aspects of life in North Minneapolis that some readers may find objectionable. Reader discretion is advised.
1st Up: The First “Who’s Slummier” Competition
There are a lot of slumlords in North Minneapolis. Well, they’re not actually “in North Minneapolis”, their properties are. Usually the slumlords owning properties here live far, far away. The first pick that I want to talk about are Keith Reitman and Mahmood Khan. Both of these men own a large number of properties, Reitman owns 24, and Khan owns 38 respectively. In a game of pure numbers Khan wins; plus murder number 30 for the year took place at one of Khan’s properties. However, don’t underestimate Reitman’s slumminess. A couple years back, a thug rammed his SUV into Reitman’s building at 1415 West Broadway. He covered the hole with plywood, took the insurance money, and called it a day. The property was seized by the city because Reitman didn’t pay property taxes on it. Earlier this year Reitman’s girl friend, Carole Cera, bought the property for pennies on the dollar… Nice.
You can see the competition for who’s slummier. Cast your vote and leave your comments, share information, let’s see what can be brought to the public forum.
Jerk Du Jour: Stalkers
The picture you see below is from the JHG blog. The angle of the picture is such that the person taking it would have had to been on my property to take the picture. Yes, admittedly this is one of the less attractive pieces to my house… But hey, that’s going away real soon once the glass block windows get put in later this month! Jordan Hawkman—Don Allen and some thug-hugging friends—seems to think that having a cosmetic issue, on a house somebody is fixing up, instantly makes them a hypocrite for calling out thugs and slumlords. Somebody was standing real close to my house to get that picture, and while that isn’t the end of the world it doesn’t make sense that they would dig so much to try and find something wrong with the house when it’s obvious that upgrades are in progress. Jordan Hawkman Group—NONE of these people actually LIVE in Jordan—seems content to stalk me and three other people; throw shit up on their site three times a day, and attempt to make it sound as if they’ve “exposed the revitalizers for being the hypocrites that they really are” and tout it as a success. Seriously, JHG, you guys talk about the same people all day every day. You’re so desperate to find something to say that you literally stalk people.
