More on the murder in Minneapolis

I just spoke with reporter David Chanen regarding his story in this morning’s Star Tribune on the apprehension of two suspects in the murder of Eric Pearson. I called to ask if he had any additional information on the gang affiliation of the three defendants charged with Pearson’s murder. Dave advises me that, according to the Minnesota Gang Strike Force, both Cross and Hayes are known gang members (Crips).
You might ask what a known gang member with an outstanding arrest warrant for a drug offense was doing on the streets at the time he assisted in the murder of Eric Pearson; why hadn’t the sheriff’s office executed the arrest warrant? You won’t get a good answer. I know because I’ve tried.
