Back-to-back Eden Prairie attacks start with man assaulted, robbed in Life Time Fitness
http://www.startribune.com/local/west/249432671.html?page=1&c=y ^

Posted on 03/12/2014 7:46:56 AM PDT by MNDude

A bloody ambush robbery of a Life Time Fitness member in an Eden Prairie locker room left the man badly beaten, and one of his two assailants unleashed a similar attack on a resident in a randomly chosen home in the city about an hour later, according to charges filed Tuesday.

Arrested and charged in the Sunday attack at Life Time Fitness were Dalal B. Idd, 18, of Eden Prairie, and Kamal E. Maqadin, 26, of Shakopee. Both remain jailed pending appearances Wednesday in Hennepin County District Court.

The fitness center victim was punched repeatedly Sunday afternoon by Idd and left “barely conscious” on the floor of the downstairs locker room with cuts to his face, a broken nose and eyes that were swollen shut, the complaint said.

Entry for club members, guests and potential new members is allowed only at the check-in desk. The employee at the check-in area “attempted to have these people wait, and they did not,” Thunstrom said. The staffer followed security procedures and notified the rest of the staff in an effort “to find these individuals and notify authorities,” the spokesman added.

But the two “clearly did not” waste any time carrying out the attack, Thunstrom said. “They were bound and determined to commit such an act.”

Never join a gym that has a basketball court.

Seriously.

Probably not bad advice: Another story this week from another MN Gym.

http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2014/03/07/big-gym-fight-has-police-hoping-la-fitness-beefs-up-security/

“On Sunday, city police responded to a call involving 10-15 people fighting at the gym’s Cleveland Avenue location. It started all on the basketball court over a call and escalated, moving into the main fitness area.

“People were actually throwing two and a half, five, 10 pound weights within the building,” said Police Lt. Lorne Rosand.”

This is all very confusing. Even I am not sure if what they did is a crime anymore? Perhaps Idd and Maqadin are the real victims here. It’s hard to tell since we’re not told whether the two men who were beaten were in some protected class or not.

This is what “Minnesota Nice” gets us. We can’t be nice to everybody. We need to stop bringing in these awful immigrants from Somalia, etc.(if that’s the case—but how can it NOT be with names like those).

I grew up in next door Bloomington in the 60s and 70s. It was a nice town then, and Eden Prairie was a mostly rural town.

East Bloomington has become an inner city sewer, but I thought West Bloomington and Eden Prairie were still in good shape as somewhat upscale suburban neighborhoods.

I am surprised to read that this happened in Eden Prairie

If they had committed this crime in the downtown area of Minneapolis it would hardly be mentioned in the news. Since they did it in the swanky suburb of Eden Prairie, at a very nice health club, they are going to get quite a bit more attention.

Although the media refuses to report certain facts about these stories, it seems that a very large percent of the population is VERY aware of the situation.

If you go into a mall in the Twin Cities, and you don’t see a sea of black head scarves, something is very wrong. Turn and run back to your car. They probably know something you don’t.

Idd admitted to police that he went into the locker room with the intent of robbing someone and punched the victim five or six times in the face.

A couple of years ago, my friend that currently lives in EP, called me and asked me to stop by his place. “Bring your Sig and a holster”, he said.

The somali crowd had started hanging out in front of his favorite liquor store and they were harrassing the customers as they went in and came out. The store owner asked him if he knew any other permit holders that would like to open carry in and around his establishment.

That’s when he called me. We strapped and headed straight for the liquor store.

Took about four appearances from us and they finally got the message.
