Here’s their latest headline:
Here’s a map of where it happened:
According to Google Maps, it takes 16 minutes to drive from the South Minneapolis where the murder took place to the other end of South Minneapolis.
Does anyone from KARE 11 actually live in Minneapolis? Spend time in Minneapolis? Do they realize how absurd it is to use a geographic term that covers 100,000+ city residents who live in some of the quietest and most challenging neighborhoods in the city?
Admittedly, they did get to mentioning the specific location in the video and online versions faster than the last time they did this, but they’re still irresponsibly branding a HUGE area of Minnesota’s largest city with a dangerously inaccurate storyline.
As Rich mentioned here and Ranty commented on MNSpeak, overly broad generalizations like this are not unique to areas South of downtown. North Minneapolis neighborhoods suffer from the same broad brush of laziness.
