Peak Stupidity was truly broken up a bit about the sick and evil deed that was done to the (at the time) 5 y/o Landen Hoffman. The boy was purposefully thrown off a balcony to the floor 3 stories below by a black man named Emmanuel Deshawn Ananda in Minneapolis' Mall of America 2 1/3 years ago. We gave an update, with great relief about the miraculous recovery of the boy a year back.
The attempted murderer received 19 years prison time, though I'd read that it could go down to 12. There's no telling how low that could go were he to accumulate a following of Minnesota snowflakes with that tremendous compassion they've got there, you betcha'. We left the story still not sure about Ananda's background, other than that he was from Chicago, born in America, and a known crazy who should have been locked up long before. More on the background later ...
I came upon some news from late this July reporting Family Of Boy Thrown From Third-Floor Balcony Sues Mall Of America.
Let me skip the rest of that article for a bit and just get to the gist of the legal complaint:
The lawsuit states Landen’s medical bills have exceeded $1.75 million. In addition to seeking damages for those costs, the family seeks damages for future medical expenses, pain and suffering, future income loss and mental anguish and distress.Let me say first that the Hoffman family was NOT going around forgiving the evil Emmanuel Deshawn Ananda, even though they are a Christian family and the guy had that Biblical first name. That's a big mark in their favor. Their boy will never be "made whole", pretty much literally here, Though the Hoffman parents got lots of crowd funding and that, I have a feeling that all those expensive medical procedures and likely continuing procedures and/or drugs are now busting their budget as people tail off their charity
However, if you want to collect for all of this from whomever's responsible, you've got to pin that down. That's easy, though, but then again, the one responsible is in jail, never had, and never will have, that kind of money. You, or the lawyers, that is, go up to another level, higher in assets, and lower in responsibility. That'd be the Mall of America, I suppose, according to the lawyers. It's the biggest mall in America, so, even in the year 2021, I guess they have deep enough pockets. Responsibility-wise, I don't agree.
You may want to read the details in the article linked-to above, as to how this responsibility is being claimed. It's true that Ananda was banned from the mall before for a year, then with an extension. How is this really controlled though? Do we want to live in a country in which our IDs are checked even entering a mall? That's what a lawsuit like this will encourage. That is, unless all the mall security people are to be trained to "keep your eyes on the black guys." That doesn't sound too Minnesota Snowflakey to me though.
I was surprised this guy was not an immigrant, from Somalia or some other godawful place. No, he's most assuredly from Chicago, Illinois, and Ameican, I am told. That was no typo by Peak Stupidity (for a change!). It seems that all the websites I've been reading blurbs from while trying to find Emmanuel Deshawn Ananda's actual ethnicity have the same typo. That's interesting. The main problem is that I've had no luck finding out whether this evil fuck is from an immigrant family. Are the search engines hiding that, or does nobody really care? People might want to care, in the future.
I can't suggest that the Hoffman family direct its lawsuit at a more suitable target, such as Lutheran Refugee Services, due to the attempted murderer not being an immigrant. If his family was, then it would be a hell of a cool thing, publicity-wise, if they would sue one of these groups. We as a country need to get to the root of our problems, and you must direct your anger and your lawsuits at the most deeply responsible people. It's really not the Mall of America's fault. With no collectable blame to be assigned to Ananda, I apportion 50% of the collectible blame to the Snowflakes of Minnesota and 50% to the rest of the woke, BLM-ard-sign-posting, integrationist Americans everywhere around this country for the last 50 years. Pay up, bitches! Oh, right, you already are.
PS: Our commenter Adam Smith may want to chime in here, but I am under the impression that most parts of governments are immune to lawsuits for their lawful practices. After all, they are supposedly just doing the taxpayers' bidding. However, this case also goes back to the elimination of the State Hospitals, aka "Funny Farms" a few decades back, as Peak Stupidity discussed in Outsourcing of the Funny Farms. It's too late to sue anyone for that, I suppose.
