Minnesota’s Most Wanted?

An article in the paper about the burglary of a local auto dealer caught my eye; a suspect whose fingerprints were found at the scene insists he couldn’t have done it, because he was wearing a court-ordered monitoring ankle-bracelet at the time. While it’s not clear how much of an alibi that is going to prove, contemplate this for a moment: “State records show that, since 2004, [22-year old Brandon Anthony Jones] has racked up nine convictions in Ramsey, Hennepin and Dakota counties, and since 2003, authorities have booked him on 257 various charges.”

Apparently, he’s a nonviolent offender, so he gets an endless series of slaps on the wrist. Gotta love the “justice” system, huh?
