    Exclamation MN - Man throws 5 year old stranger off balcony at Mall of America

    Boy thrown from Mall of America balcony fighting for his life

    https://www.duluthnewstribune.com/ne...hting-his-life

    By Deanna Weniger / St. Paul Pioneer Press on Apr 13, 2019 at 3:52 p.m.

    BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — The five-year-old boy thrown about 40 feet from a Mall of America balcony Friday, April 12, is still alive and fighting for his life, Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said at a press conference at noon Saturday.

    “I know there’s been some reports and some concerns about whether or not he is still alive,” Potts said. “He is still receiving care. We just want to acknowledge that this is a horrific situation. The family and this child are in our thoughts and prayers.”

    The incident happened about 10:15 a.m. in the southeast corner of the mall. Police said Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, picked the boy at random and threw him over the third story balcony. Police still do not believe there was any connection between the family and Aranda.

    Potts said one witness ran after Aranda as he fled the scene and tried to stop him.

    “We’re very appreciative of his effort to try to intervene and help out,” Potts said.

    Mall of America security tracked Aranda's location using cameras in the mall, allowing Bloomington police to apprehend him in the mall’s transit station. He is being held at Hennepin County Jail pending charges for attempted homicide.

    Potts confirmed that there is video that occurred during the incident, but said it will not be released until the investigation is complete.

    The boy was taken to Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis with serious injuries. Police are not releasing his name.

    A Gofundme page has been set up by Noah Hanneman, who says he is a friend of the family. Hanneman identified the boy as “Landen” and described him as “the sweetest kindest five-year-old you will ever meet.”

    Hanneman said his wife and Landen’s mother are long-time friends.

    “Their family is always so generous to others,” he wrote. “They give without expecting anything in return and are the type of family you always hope to live next door.”

    He reiterated that the family did not know Aranda and said they “are completely clueless as to why this monster would target their family with this heinous act of violence.”

    Hanneman said the boy suffered life-threatening injuries.

    “He has many surgeries ahead in his life to try to get back to a normal life for a young, vibrant boy,” Hanneman wrote.

    Aranda has been involved in incidents before at the Mall of America, one resulting in an arrest, Potts said. In one incident, he was accused of throwing things off the upper level of the mall. In another, he allegedly threw a glass at a woman at a mall restaurant.

    In total, Aranda had contact with the Bloomington Police Department three times in 2015 and has been arrested in other jurisdictions.

    Potts said the Mall of America will often give a no-trespass order to offenders, with a time limit appropriate to the crime. Most no-trespass orders are in six-month or one-year increments.

    Aranda was given a no-trespass order in 2015, but it expired. Potts believes this most recent incident is isolated and said the Mall of America continues to be a very safe place to go.

    Potts said the department will focus on preparing its submission for formal charges at the Hennepin County Attorney’s office and anticipates charges will be filed on Monday.

    He asked the public to keep the boy’s family and first responders in their thoughts and prayers.

    “This is a tough one,” he said. “Immediately my thoughts were, ‘How can something like this happen?’ When it’s involving a young child like that, it’s pretty gut-wrenching for everyone involved.”

    A woman refusing to buy food for a guy is not the same thing as being rejected by a woman. The story I have heard is that the man has mental issues and might be off his medication.

    I am one of those people who people mental illness should never be a get of jail free card for criminal. If u commit a crime, u or at worst your guardian should pay for it. Hopefully he gets a long time in jail.

    It should also not be treated by those who do more harm.. And the"mental Issues might have been created by that same "treatment".

    This is in no way a justification... But I find it rather simplistic to to say he has "mental issues",, when the people that Define,, Treat and Profit from it have NO Ethics.
    and a long history.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    He told police he did it because women rejected him, but in 2015 this incident happened which is what jules seems to be referring to:

    In October 2015, Aranda was accused of throwing glasses in Twin Cities Grill in the mall. The complaint says Aranda approached a woman who was waiting for the restaurant to open and asked her to buy him something.
    The woman refused, and Aranda allegedly threw a glass of water in her face and a glass of tea that struck her leg.
    Aranda was under a trespass notice at the time banning him from the mall until July 4, 2016.

    It goes without saying but I'll say it anyway;

    I think it does. If the death penalty could ever apply to a case, this would be it. There is video proof of him doing it; he has admitted doing it; the victim is a complete innocent. He offers absolutely no redeeming value and you could never trust him to be reformed. There is no reason for taxpayers to have to pay to imprison him.
