Senator Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Presidential Candidate, oversaw the prosecution and conviction of a 16 year old black boy, falsely accused and convicted of murdering 11 year old Tyesha Edwards on “the basis of circumstantial evidence and coerced eyewitness testimony, with no DNA, fingerprints, ballistics, or other tangible evidence linking him to the crime” according to a recent press release.
Myon has now spent more than half of his life in prison for a crime he did not commit.
Injustice against black boys, is not news anywhere in America, less so in Minnesota’s most populous counties where Klobuchar’s tough on crime approach has had unintended consequences.
Senator Klobuchar is an accomplished and astute politician, she’s a current presidential forerunner, and will be asked to explain Myon’s case tomorrow on “The View.” This will be the world’s first major exposure to the term known as “Minnesota Nice.” I predict her answer will be illuminating in light of new research coming out of the Kinsey Institute.
