Crime Watch Minneapolis is the truth squad run on a shoestring to cover the descent of the Twin Cities into crime and anarchy with the invaluable assistance of our neutered criminal justice system. Starting with one Facebook page grown to 10, Crime Watch has become an invaluable resource for those of us living in the Twin Cities. Its Twitter feed is here.
