The fallout continues from Friday’s

The fallout continues from Friday’s Powderhorn Park neighborhood murder of the 12-year-old caught in the crossfire of a couple of Minneapolis’s finest gangbangers. The Star Tribune devotes more page-one coverage to “Friends and family gather to mourn and remember Tyesha” while the St. Paul Pioneer Press story “My heart was just torn apart” is relegated to the paper’s metro section. Although both stories place the murder in the context of neighborhood crime, the great silence in these stories is the transformation of Minneapolis into a haven for gangbangers, a transformation that the city has silently and passively endured.
