SNIPPET: "Gang history in Maine

Portland Police Chief James Craig said publicly last month that one of his primary goals for 2010 is to dismantle two established gangs in Maine's biggest city - one made up primarily of young Somali men and the other composed of young Asians.

Similarly, Lewiston has seen gang activity recently from a group of young Somali men. The crimes have been petty thefts and strong- arm robberies, but the attacks appear to be at least somewhat organized and often involve sticks or rocks to intimidate and even assault. A Lewiston official said there are no gang names or colors to investigate and he characterized the behavior as gang mentality versus gang activity."

Couldn’t there be a more definitive description than “Somalis” and “Asians?” More PC reporting.

Lewiston/Auburn area is completely over run. Portland is getting the overflow. I can’t begin to express how unrecognizable my home state has become.

Uhhh...Until all the liberals get mugged, robbed, and/or beaten in ME they will continue to attract these types. They must give them great welfare up there because the weather is deifinitely not attracting them!

It is the welfare. We greatfully shipped this group out of here after they destroyed apartment complexes and neighborhoods that some idiot decided would be a good home for them. I read stories of them having charcoal fires in the apartments and keeping goats inside.

Huge Somali influx in Portland and Lewiston in the last few years. Community in Atlanta looked around the US and decided Maine had the best welfare benefits, so thousands came.(Don't doubt me. I spoke to the mayor)

A few years ago the Mayor of Lewiston got in trouble for suggesting they the newcomers were taxing the system too much (which they were), and was attacked by the "RACIST" police.

I’ve always considered a Class III to not be worth the hassle — but, if I lived in Bangor, I might reconsider...
