Man arrested for flinging child off 3rd floor balcony at the Mall of America
A 24-year-old Twin Cities man is being held by Bloomington police on suspicion of attempted homicide after he threw or pushed a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America on Friday morning, police said. Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda was arrested in the mall transit station after fleeing the scene of the child’s fall, Bloomington police said. Aranda’s residence was not immediately available.
The boy was taken by ambulance from the mall to Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis. No further information on his condition was available.
Tina Hailey of Burnsville was walking with her husband and had just rounded the corner on the mall’s first floor near Macy’s when she heard screams. “Oh, my God.” Pray for my son,” she heard the mother yelled out. The mother screamed uncontrollably and appeared to be in shock, Hailey said. “She didn’t know what to do. Nobody was helping her,” she added.

Aranda lives in the Bloomington area and has a series of arrests and convictions related to the mall. He had been banned from Mall of America in the past and was convicted of misdemeanors in two incidents there in 2015, court records show. Aranda was charged in July 2015 with causing damage inside stores after he threw items off the upper level of the mall to the lower level, court records obtained by CNN affiliate WCCO show.
He was accused three months later of throwing glasses of ice water and tea at a woman in a restaurant at the mall after she refused to buy him food, the records show. In that incident, he got into a physical scuffle with the manager of the restaurant, sending panicked diners fleeing, according to court records that also note Aranda at that point had been banned from Mall of America property through early July 2016. In August 2015, witnesses saw Aranda smashing computers on the floor of a Minneapolis library, causing about $5,000 in damage, according to a 2015 complaint. Police were called and arrested him without incident after finding him at a bus stop across the street. Aranda in that case told authorities he got "angry after he read something on the Facebook" and so smashed five computers, screens and keyboards, court records show, citing a recorded statement. "He said he has some anger issues and told the officer that it does not happen all the time," the complaint states.

What's kind of scary is that if the Mall of America didn't have its own dedicated police department right there on the premises, this guy might not have been caught. The remaining malls in my area use rent-a-cops whose job it is basically to call in the city police department if anything serious happens. Sometimes cop cars are stationed at malls at critical times (after school, weekends) but not 10:00 .a.m., the time this occurred.

[quote] [R156] oh bullshit, EVERYTIME. a white person looks at a black person the wrong way it's racist or racially motivated by "racist whites.
Even assuming that’s true, calling someone a racist is not the same as charging them with a hate crime, which happens pretty rarely.
[quote] By the way, if there's so many evil Nazi white supremacists in America as the media would have you believe, how come they're not flinging innocent black children off balconies like crazy?
For the exact reason that such behavior is typically motivated by insanity, not race. With some obvious exceptions, such as Dylan Roof, most white supremacists aren’t looking to go to prison for murder.

[quote] If the child lives, he will likely need many surgeries and rehab. The medical bills will be outrageous, as they always are in this dump of a country. Hence, the GoFundMe.
True, R157, but seeing how the parents (and their friend who set up the GoFundMe) are fundies and Trumpsters, they should be on the hook to pay every penny themselves. It's what they voted for, after all. The poor child is innocent though, and I hope he makes a full recovery, but face it, his parents are asses who don't give a shit about little brown kids, gay rights, or really anyone but themselves. So though no parent should have to suffer as they surely are, they should be footing the bill on this one.

There is an epidemic of MICROAGGRESSION. It’s literal violence. And of course, some people were slaves 200 years ago, so.

R176 and how is that the CHILD'S fault? Isn't that what you libs claim when people come over here ILLEGALLY and innocent children were detained and had to pay for what their parents did?
Extreme liberals have really gone off the dead end, they claim to love illegal immigrants and their children but at the same time have no problems trying to pass laws that a wan can legally abort a baby at 9 months.

The Mall is getting sued you better believe that and it will most likely be a 7 figure out if court settlement. The guy was banned once from the mall but allowed him back in. There’s probably a lawyer on the scene as we speak.

R182, I’d award those parents a huge settlement. I’ll bet every store manager in that mall knows who that crazy asshole is and saw him and warned each other to keep an eye out. Malls are like a small town and word gets out. I bet the employees have seen some shit and they were praying he wouldn’t come in to their store and act up. Mall security is a joke.

Plus, at least for right now, what’s to report? The child’s health status is the same, the guy is in custody. Other than when he appears for court, probably won’t hear too much more.

There was a small boy named Tripp Halstead who was in a sort of paralyzed vegetative state (couldn't do anything except lay there, blink, and occasionally smile, nobody even really knew if he processed what went on around him) after a large tree branch broke off and landed on his head. He recently passed away from a respiratory infection of some sort, five years after the accident.
I'm pretty sure that falling from a great height and landing on your head would generate even more damage than a tree branch, so if this kid survives he'll probably be a vegetable as well.
I'm as cynical and cold-hearted as the next bitch on DL, but damn, imagine just minding your own business shopping with your kid and some rando stranger goes and does that.
And frankly the parents do deserve a large settlement from the mall, especially now that it's come out that they had a history of trouble with the perp.

I hope the kid pulls through and makes a full recovery, but I'm concerned about what his life will be like. If he will suffer, than it would be better if he passed now. I hope, hope, hope he makes a full recovery or at least mentally will be ok. Physical disability is one thing, brain impairment is something else entirely.

Why must some of these trolls who get booted from every site, like this animal got booted from the mall, come on here and defend every black person and demonize whites? They think they're raising black people up it seems. All they're doing is making every demographic increase their leeriness of blacks with this incessant trolling. Absolutely no self control. Like listening to the rantings of a 12 year old with a chip on its shoulder.

It's like a national sport for some of these people. Desperate to demonize & vilify whites. Asians don't get a pass as well. This racial preoccupation is such a time waster. Go start an online business. Go put your internet connection to good use.
It always backfires & leaves egg on their faces but they never learn. This is preferable to admitting the reality that "white people" mean them no harm so much in fact that they avoid any confrontation with blacks generally. Same thing for asians. Blacks just aren't on their radar. They may actively avoid blacks but that's usually how it is. They're not gunning for blacks. They're too busy ripping each other apart to even notice blacks. Much less build a personal resentment towards blacks. That's the truth, the hurt these types are hiding from. Thank Jussus Smollet. Talk about egg on the face.
