Man killed teen he believed was a Republican “extremist”

Three weeks after President Biden made a much-publicized speech
condemning “MAGA” Republicans and labeling them a “threat to this country,”
a man ran down and killed a teen in McHenry ND that he believed was a
Republican “extremist.”

On Sunday September 18, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt intentionally ran down
18-year-old Cayler Ellingson in an alley after a town street dance.
Brandt called 911 to report the intentional act and indicated he did it
because Ellingson was an “extremist.” The North Dakota Highway Patrol
arrested Brandt and is completing the investigation.

On Tuesday Brandt was charged in Foster County District Court with
Criminal Vehicular Homicide and Leaving the Scene of a Deadly Crash.
The Judge ordered Brandt released on a $50,000 bond pending trial.

North Dakota Court Rule 46 states:
(1) In General. At the initial appearance before a magistrate of a person
charged with an offense, the magistrate must order the person released
pending trial on the person’s personal recognizance or on execution of an
unsecured appearance bond in an amount specified by the magistrate, unless
the magistrate determines, in the exercise of the magistrate’s discretion,
that unconditional release will not reasonably assure the appearance of
the person as required.

Given the circumstances of this murder, it is troubling that the bond was
not set higher when determining Brandt’s bond amount. Rule 46.3 (g)
mandates the Judge to consider the danger the defendant poses to the
community in determining the conditions of release. It states:

In determining conditions of release that will reasonably assure appearance
of a person, the magistrate, on the basis of available information, must
consider: (G) the nature and seriousness of the danger to any person or
the community posed by the person’s release.

Brandt’s mindset and actions as he intentionally killed an 18-year-old he
disagreed with politically, display a wanton disregard for the welfare
of others, and represent a threat to the community.

In light of this case, North Dakota courts would be justified in revisiting
Rule 46 to include a more robust application of a public safety element
into the Bail/Bond evaluation process.

What are the USA states with the friendliest people
do you think?
by Harold Stansfield

Well, having lived in several different states, and visited many others, my
answer will surprise at least a few readers.
Many areas are “Friendly”—they will greet strangers with a smile, they
will even chat at a bar or restaurant, but when you get up to leave you
will be immediately forgotten, and likely talked about after you leave
(and not in a pleasant way).

I’m talking about YOU, “Friendly” southern states. Where “Bless his heart”
is not a compliment, where you could move in from “away”, and live there
for years and never, ever, be invited to join a BBQ at your next-door neighbor’s

I see it this way: There are “Nice” places, and there are “Kind” places. Put
them in a quadrant—Not nice, and not kind, Kind but not nice, nice but not kind, and both kind and nice.

The upper midwest (Minnesota, Dakotas, Wisconsin, Northern Michigan) is really, really NICE. But not terribly kind. All the right things will be said, but if you need help, you’re on your own.

Northeast Seaboard—Not very nice, in general. Not friendly, but kindness is all
around you. In New England, you can be neighbors for years, never say more
than 10 words a year, but when the blizzard comes, expect a knock on your
door and to be asked how you’re doing for firewood or propane.
Deep South—Really, really nice as well. “Friendly”. But if you’re not from
there, and you’re not “one of them”, then you’re on your own.

Western—Actually, both nice and kind, generally.
