Abdisaid Mohammed is his real name and he is Muslim from Ilan Omar’s Somali district in Minneapolis.
Apparently he was looking for "someone to kill" after some women rejected his advances.

And if people feel I am "inciting violence" by posting this news, I apologize in advance.

The media's spin on even the most straightforward stories is worrisome sometimes. NY Times copy/pasted that Reuters article, same headline and everything (Man Arrested After Boy Falls From Balcony at Minnesota's Mall of America). Like Washington Post and others reported in 2016, according to a study from computer scientists from Columbia University and the French National Institute, the majority of people, 59%, share articles without ever reading past the headline. The major media outlets all know this, so I'm often left wondering what their intentions are when the headline and the story don't quite align. In this case the timing could prove troublesome for Ilhan Omar and her district considering her recent remarks, it could incite... further discussion.

A kid got injured. Maybe it isn't the time to get a jab in at an elected official?

That isn't a copy and paste, it's presenting as published by Reuters.

Also

NYT as well

Checked out Reuters political bias from mediabiasfact check... Yeah, these guys are straight shooters, right down the middle!

Must be this time of year ... I barely get sleep ... Even after taking melatonin.
I’m coming down with something. I’m actually too tired to sleep. It’s the weirdest thing. I’ve never been too hungry to eat or too horny to bone, but right now, the idea of sleep exhausts me. Like as a metaphorical construct.
