Gang threats Put Minneapolis, St. Paul Police On High Alert

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police officers in Minneapolis and St. Paul are on high alert this week after an alleged death threat from a gang.

It reportedly stems from an incident nine days ago, when St. Paul Police shot and killed a drug suspect who rammed their squad cars. Minneapolis Police had asked St. Paul police to pull over the car, driven by 41-year-old Victor Gaddy. He was an alleged gang member with a lengthy police record.

St. Paul City Council member Dan Bostrom, a retired police officer, said these are credible threats coming from several unrelated sources and they shouldn’t be dismissed. Bostrom said he found out about the threats to St. Paul and Minneapolis Police after speaking with an off duty officer about the shooting last week.

Bostrom said the officer told him the alleged gang member who was shot and killed, Victor Gaddy, was associated with gangs outside of the Twin Cities. Those gang members have talked about coming to town to retaliate and take out a police officer.

Bostrom said he talked with St. Paul’s police chief and was assured they’re taking the threat seriously and have officers on high alert.

    I’ll bet they’ll do the anti-gang sweeps that arrest huge numbers of Romney/Ryan signs and banners.

    It pains me to see what has become of my home town. The extreme liberal welfare state that MN has become has fostered this. Most people don’t move to MN for the weather (brutal winters & hot/humid summers). The attractions are the freebies. Back in the 70′s/early 80′s the state was so overwhelmed that free bus tickets back home were offered to those who came for the handouts. Unfortunately, the courts put a kibosh on that.

    Having had up-close-and-personal experiences with the corrupt and violent thugs representing MPD, I’m finding it very hard to crank up my giveadamn machine. Far as I’m concerned, this is just more gang warfare with extra media attention.
