Binky, congratulations on your copy/ paste and hyperlinking ability - as a 4th precinct resident, I am wondering what your fascination with crime in my precinct is (considering you live south of the Metro and that this information is readily available at the site that you are hyperlinking to). And how come you're not posting the "weekly highlights" of the other Mpls precincts? - there is plenty more crime to be found in other areas of the city.... or aren't you able to find this information online so as to be able to copy and paste it?

Apologies...

It's simply that this particular blogger does a fantastic example of cataloging the crime problems rampant in the city of Mpls. Your area is noteworthy simply because it's been noted.

I also posted a story about the home invasons in St Paul, perpetrated by people who ask to use a phone, or bathroom, or get a drink of water. (WTF!? Why in the name of god does anyone allow an unexpected stranger into their home for any reason!? With the exception of invited guests and repair men, if I don't know you, you're not getting any farther than the front porch.)

As for my "cut and paste" skills, I oftentimes cite and copy the whole article due to the fact that some sites kill their links in little to no time. Best, in my mind, to both link and quote the article.

I don't know....not letting strangers use my toilet and phone are some of the crazy concessions that I make in order to live in the City without being a victim of crime. It seems that you have a similar aversion to letting strangers use your private facilities. I suppose that they could use your GPS considering that you leave it in your unlocked car.

Default Crimes in Victory

I ocassionally check the crime reports there. Is it me or does it seem like there's more than a normal amount of crime going on there recently? Usually, seems pretty quite there.

From the crime maps for this week and the reports above - there were only two crimes that happened in Victory during the week of the 16th - 22nd, both burglaries, unfortunately for the homeowners (or burglars depending on how you look at it), it appears that the burglars were unaware that the homeowners were actually in their homes at the time they were trying to burglarize it (of the victims, one was an 84 year old man and another was a guy sleeping in his basement where he must also have kept his hunting rifles). The third "incident" above in Victory on 4300 block of Xerxes is an example of residents calling in suspicious activity leading to an arrest of a would-be burglar.

Considering that the population of Victory is around 5,000 residents, two crimes within a week's time doesn't seem too bad to me - Bryn Mawr, also in the 4th precinct and with about half the population of Victory, had an assault and 2 larcenies this week (and in general, Bryn Mawr has an exorbitant burglary rate in comparison to Victory, despite the fact that burglaries/ garage thefts are the most commonplace crimes that happen here).

But to your point about crimes in the neighborhood and whether it's increasing - it does seem that there's been an uptick in burglaries/ garage thefts lately, and maybe an increase in not-so-bright would-be burglars getting caught by neighbors/ police in botched schemes, but I'm not sure how much of this is a result of the old adage that crime increases around the holidays, or if it's related to economic factors or what. I would be surprised, however, if Victory is seeing a more elevated level of crime these days in comparison to other similar neighborhoods throughout the city - hopefully the MPD releases a spreadsheet compilation of all of 2008's crime stats combined so I can do a per capita crime project on the #s again and rank all Mpls neighborhoods for the year.

Thats pretty slow, actually. There tends to be more activity during the summertime, but even still it doesnt represent your statement of Minneapolis being RAMPANT WITH CRIME. I dont think Victory has seen any dramatic increase if you compare that data to the last years worth of reported crimes...its still dramatically low.

Most of the incidents that take place in the 4th precinct tend to be in Plymouth/Lowry/Penn/Lyndale area.

You can take stuff out of my garage. Insurance will cover it. Steal my car, whatever. I don't care. Take my life savings and lie to me every day while you're doing it... insurance doesn't cover that. Unforgiveable.

My best defense against crime is to own crap that nobody would want to steal. At least, that's what I keep telling myself...
