We hate to be vulgar, but this guy is a dumb ass.

Emmanuel Aranda, 24, went to Mall of America in Minneapolis and threw a 5 year-old boy off of a 3rd floor balcony (40 Feet) on April 12, 2019. Emmanuel tossed the kid because he was always getting rejected by women at the mall.

Sadly Emmanuel took all of his girl problems out on an innocent child. The many women that rejected Emmauel must of knew he was crazy.

Emmanuel is charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder in Friday’s attack. The child plunged almost 40 feet and is fighting for his life in a Minneapolis hospital with head trauma and multiple broken bones.

The victim's mother told police that Emmanuel came up very close to her group as they stood outside the Rainforest Cafe restaurant. She said she asked him if they were in his way and should move. Emmanuel then picked up the child without warning and threw him off the 3rd floor balcony.

Police caught Emmanuel on a light rail train at the mall waiting for it to leave. They said he admitted throwing the child from the balcony and said he had come to the mall a day earlier seeking to kill someone but it did not “work out.” Emmanuel originally said he planned to kill an adult before choosing the child instead.

Emmanuel indicated to authorities that he had been coming to the Mall of America for several years and had made efforts to talk to women in the mall, but had been rejected, and the rejection caused him to lash out and be aggressive.

Emmanuel has two past convictions for assaults at the Mall of America, both in 2015, including one in which he threw a glass of water and glass of tea at a woman who refused to buy him something. Emmanuel at one point was banned from the mall.

Emmanuel had been ordered to undergo psychological evaluation or treatment after the earlier mall assaults.

Thankfully a GoFundMe page set up for the child, named Landen, had amassed $600,000 in donations as of Monday.

Little sweet Landen is in critical condition.
