A 26-year-old St. Paul man died this morning after being shot multiple times.

The incident happened along the 700 block of Van Buren Avenue around 1:30 a.m. Desmond Brooks Clark was pronounced dead on the scene after paramedics attempted to revive him.

Police said they have identified multiple persons of interest but do not have a suspect in custody. Though a motive for the shooting has not yet been determined, police said they do not believe it was random.

KSTP-TV reported that the victim's mother said she does not believe her son was the intended target and that he had a 2-year-old daughter.

"The investigation is still at an early point and we don't know much yet," said St. Paul Police spokesman Peter Panos. "We expect to have more information later today."

It is the city's ninth homicide of the year and the second this week. Anyone with information is asked to call 651-291-1111.

Let's compare the FBI's 2007 crime statistics to those in 2000 (when Norm Coleman was mayor):

Total Part 1 Crimes are down by 28% with the biggest decline (-30%) in property crimes and defined as Robbery, Burglary, Theft, Motor Vehicle Theft and Arson). Personal crimes declined by 6% (and are defined as Homicide, Rape and Aggravated Assault).

And yes, the number of homicides also declined from 2000 to 2007. However, the percentage reduction is somewhat misleading due to the (thankfully) small numbers from year to year. However, pro-rating the nine homicides to date indicates that the annual number will also decline in 2008 from 2000.

It's simplistic (but typical of this blog) to hold the "Leaders of the City" solely responsible for crime in St Paul. But I guess if you're going to do so, you'd have to then solely credit those same leaders for the improvements over the past seven years.

BTW, the data is here:

To S. O. Journer,

Hitler also made claims like that. His ability to do things with mirrors impressed some people in the short term (before the collapse).

St. Paul's alchemists claim to be able to turn shit into gold. To fully evaluate the situation, you also have to factor in the upcoming collapse.

my response-

The LEADERS (if you can call them that)have BLAMED innocent business owners and landlords for crime in this city for years. THIS blog has put the BLAME where it belongs, on CRIMINALS and our politicians charged with doing something about crime!

And all we ask is of our civic leaders is to fullfill their responsibilities to US and come up with a RESPONSIBLE CRIME STRATEGY that doesn't involve passing the blame onto innocent people.

Citizens call the police and OFTEN the police do not even file a report if the incident meets a certain criteria. This in and of itself keeps the crime statistics down.

Our police force is guided and driven by politics.

Journer, where is the FBI statistics link. The citys statistics aren't credible.

Then we have "8:50" who claims the numbers are being spun ... a standard but limp response of someone who has no factual data with which to argue. But I suspect "8:50" is used to being, er, limp.

Finally we have Bob's rejoinder -- again without data or substantiation. Obviously it's part of the "Great Conspiracy" which apparently started only after Norm Coleman left office.

It's one more shining example of why some of us read this blog from time to time -- sheer comic relief.

I believe landlords who have rented to low income folks with behavioral issues were targeted to put them out of business. I know innocent woman, children and handicap folks have been condemned to the streets by a callous city government.

Civil rights have been violated and circumvented.

Bob, since I have been on here I have respected your view because we are not that far apart.

I cannot speak to individual mishaps and incompetence. I won't and haven't argued that it didn't happen. I even agree that some landlords may be targetted because of their tenants.


But, I cannot give any time to trying to beleive these stories of conspiring and mass corruption- all against the lanlords when their are many others that do business with the city that it would be easier and actually benefical to those who are corrupt.

Why shake down these broke landlords when builders, and contractors have more money and discretion with their money?

Nothing about this case makes sense and even their attorneys have had a hard time proving anything- which shouldn't be so hard if corruption is so rampant through the city and county.

Eric, decreasing private affordable rental housing with behavioral issues is not a crime strategy. In fact it increases crime.

The leaders of this city can do away with every single affordable private rental with behavioral issues and we will still have anti social misfits raising hell on our streets. They will be forced as they are into over crowding situations to make rent affordable. Have any of you ever lived in a house that is over crowded?I HAVE, IT'S HELL!

Here is a example of over crowding. Take a 10 gallon aquarium. Put 2 rats in it the first day with one piece of cheese. Add a rat every day there after and do not increase the food supply and before long you will see the rats killing each other. Over crowding and despair over financial situations is a recipe for disaster.

This is a common occurrence, a teenage boy is selling drugs from the rental property his mother has rented, there is a lot of traffic at the rental home he and his family inhabit. The neighbors are livid and want something done about it.
So, Kathy Lantry or some other willing council member comes running to the rescue to rid the community of the evil doers and shut the rental down. BIG HERO!It's good politics for her since she gets the credit from the neighbors for closing the property down. This BUYS VOTES! This teenage boy in many cases has brothers and sisters and a mother who are totally innocent of any wrong doing and yet they are condemned out of their home, put out on the streets and made to suffer. The drug dealing kid most often is never charged with any crime and moves on to another neighborhood with mom to raise hell all over again. Then some other council member or the same can play HERO all over again. This is just one example of many mentioned in the lawsuits with evidence to back the allegations up.

My crime strategy-

Investigate, arrest, prosecute and lock up offenders. I know this is more expensive than chasing them out of their home. But it is more responsible than violating innocent folks rights.

Bring back the parole board and provide educational opportunities in prison to provide hope for a future to these cons. Educated folks statistically commit fewer crimes.

We have to keep the older criminals who have been determined habitual offenders in prison for longer periods of time and separate them from younger prisoners just entering the system. These younger men gravitate to these older guys and prison becomes nothing more than crime school. A place where criminals strengthen alliances and learn new ways to rip off the public.

I will do a topic on crime and punishment in the future, that should be interesting with the diversity of posters here.

Ok maybe someone can answer a question for me....

If crime is down considerably in St.Paul/Ramsey Co. why was it necessary to build a bigger jail to hold the increasing numbers of offenders/inmates?


Ok I know the prison system does not only include St.Paul but it does give a person an idea of crime rates.

Stillwater Prison statistics drug offenses only;
1989 - 173 inmates
2007 - 1,887 inmates

overall inmates;
1989 - 3,032
2007 - 9,214

I am having trouble comprehending a decrease in crime by looking at theses figures... and yes I do have the paperwork directly from the prison in front of me... we are starting the first CA/Meth Annonymous meeting there soon for the drug offenders that will be gettong released in the next two years.

Looking forward to an explanation....yes I am still around...just been lurking so to speak and busy with my business (property management business) and my school studies (criminal justice).

Nancy O asks a reasonable set of questions regarding why prison population increases when St Paul reports a declining number of criminal offenses.

One explanation is that the length of sentence increased starting in 1989. From the DoC website:

1989: The legislature began its annual passage of crime bills, substantially increasing criminal penalties. Eventually, sentencing guidelines were doubled for all crimes in the higher severity levels, time was increased from 17 to 30 years before parole eligibility for life sentences for first-degree murder, and life without parole was created for certain crimes. (see http://www.doc.state.mn.us/aboutdoc/history/1984-1999.htm)

Based on this, it's not surprising that the number of inmates in custody increases over time since the "holding time" lengthens for each cohort that enters prison. In other words, starting around 1989, each incoming cohort would remain imprisoned longer than the cohort that was being released. As a result, the number of inmates in custody increases over time because they're being held in custody longer.

Moreover, the length of presumptive sentences under the guidelines is longer for crimes against person as compared to property crimes. While there was a decline in both property crimes and crimes against persons, the decline was greater for property crimes. Thus, the cohort of prisoners entering DoC's institutions would have lengthier sentences on the average in 2007 than in 2000.

And, finally, you're comparing disparate periods of time and using a data point that doesn't correlate to whether criminal activity is declining.

To the first point, the report I cited covered 2000 to 2007 while your data runs from 1989 through 2007.

But more importantly, the number of new commitments to the Commissioner of Corrections is a better gauge; however, that number excludes commitments to the Ramsey County workhouse (which are predominately resulting from property crimes -- crimes against person are almost exclusively going to result in state commitments. It also excludes juvenile commitments.

Hope that helps.

But if I recall a few years back wasn't the reason for building the new Ramsey Co. jail also due to the increase of incarceration and being overcrowded...? I am under the impression that the ramsey Co jail is more of a holding jail/short term while awaiting court/sentencing....correct me if I am wrong.

You try to dispell the statistics Nancy O talks about with BS about what the Legislature did 20 years, but the reality still remains that crime is worse today than it was last year and the year before that and also 20 years ago. How can you even expect us to believe that crime is getting better when night after night there's a new story on the news about someone getting whacked.....not to mention the gunfire and shootings we hear nightly in our neighborhoods that never makes it to the news?

ummm....the answer to your question would be zero my dear. In fact I think it's increasing. Didn't they just hire more Police and have a big fight because some council members thought it wasn't enough? Listen to the council meetings when they discuss hiring more cops. They sure don't make it sound like crime is on the decrease.

Yes it is true that the old river front jail was overcrowded, it is also true that the new jail is already having issues with being overcrowded as well. There are inmates sleeping on mats on the floor much of the time.

Again I ask if crime is decreasing I would think with all the budget issues there would be lay offs in the criminal justice field... I have not heard of any and in fact all I have heard of is how the work loads continue to increase and they are recruiting more law enforcement.

Next area of question I have is; its obvious the current crime strategy hasn't been a very successful one and I believe the stats for offenders that re-offend are very high... wouldn't that tell you that its time to make some changes within the system to help rehabilitate the offender and give them the tools they need to be able to come out and be productive citizens..?

Currently it is near impossible for a felon to make it in todays society. I realize that an offender needs to be held accountable for thier actions but onces they have proven themselves and taken responsibility for those actions they also should be given a chance at the new life they may be seeking so they don't feel the need to re-offend to survive. Bob made a point earlier, criminals do learn new criminal activity while being jailed and there are stats to support it, it would make much more sense to teach inmates new traits and educate them so they start a good life when they are released, the end results would be more cost efficient too.

For our S.O. Journer;



Because not all law enforcement agencies provide complete data for a given year, it is sometimes necessary for the UCR Program to estimate crime at the Metropolitan Statistical Area, state, and national levels. For agencies that did not report data, the UCR Program staff assign the same proportional crime volumes based on the crime statistics of similar areas within a state. The UCR Program staff consider the size of an agency, type of jurisdiction, and geographic location in the estimation process. The UCR Program staff use a similar procedure for estimating the number of arrests for the Nation.

Maybe that explains why they like the Communist atmosphere of A-Democracy- the "Believe as we do- or we'll attack you. Facts be damned. Logic is not needed. You MUST believe as we do or your slime."

Actually, they can't stand having a debate with any injection of intellect here. They cannot figure out how to lay out an argument and support. They also are mostly a bunch of limp chicken shits that hide behind anonymous (or so they think) and threatened those who use their names. True Patriots don't hide.

Hell, these people are so out of it that they ran Tom Swift off. What anti-government, anti-DFL group could reject one of the biggest a-holes to the DFL as being socialist and brainwashed? Only on a-democracy.

Sit back long enough and just poke them a little and watch them contradict themselves and beat their own arguments.

Nancy O rarely posts and has one issue with a particular employee. Stay out of that one, its the only one where there is a possibility of truth.

Nancy Lazaryan is nuts. Their legal beagle who spent months lecturing us about hillbilly law or something and now can't even work the system enough to get a public defender. A guy who gets caught pissing in the middle street while high, is cognitive to the point the he can get a public defender.

If he entered into an agreement with the city that enabled him to get his clammy little paws on a house in Irvine Park, I wouldn't be surprised in the least to discover he is in default of that agreement as well.

"Support me, give me"...it's the way a lazy, lefty POS like Bucky rolls.

Maybe the city can get his fat, worthless ass off of that property and sell it to someone else who would properly maintain it.

I know his neighbors would be *thrilled*.
