Three people are now accused of jumping on and beating a man to death in Minneapolis.
Tony Baker, 33, of Brooklyn Center was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, police said Monday, Dec. 24. Witnesses say he and two other males took turns jumping from a retaining wall onto a man’s chest and abdomen in mid-November.
Kerry Duane Scott, 41, of Hopkins was found bleeding from the head in an alley in the 3300 block of Girard Avenue North in North Minneapolis. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene, according to police.
Brutal, but illustrative on why gun bans, and through extension the metric of “Gun Death” is bogus. Even if the invention of guns is erased, we can still have murder, but what we don’t have is the ability of an outnumbered man targeted for a savage attack to defend himself.
I think I’d prefer to live in the world where good guys can carry guns. Wouldn’t you?
