Skip to comments.Somali gang continues to terrorize park – in Maine
Posted on 06/18/2018 5:20:18 AM PDT by rktman
Last month, two dozen Somali youths swarmed and attacked two Maine residents in a park in Lewiston, beating them with sticks while laughing, as video of the incident shows.
One of the victims was hospitalized, but no charges were filed.
Then, last Tuesday, a group of Somalis fired pellet guns at non-Somalis in the same park. A fight broke out and one non-Somali, a 38-year-old father of two, died days later from his injuries.
Kennedy Park in Lewiston has become the focal point of such clashes, according to reports.
Previously, a 10-year-old girl was jumped and beaten by a Somali girl at the park. As such occurrences become more common in Lewiston, many lifelong residents are now afraid to bring their own children to play.
Some residents say police officers tell them the safest thing would be not to bring their kids to the park anymore.

Take your kids - and a weapon.
Who are the people running that duckburg? Is LePage still governor? I thought he was a pretty tough, stand up frog.
Hey, anybody seen a good Bruce Willis movie lately?
This is only going to get worse. The Lewiston/Auburn area is not known for its wilting lillies...
Thats so sweet how its named after the Kennedys! Like everything else in New England.~sarc
Im telling ya, street Justice is coming. Just a matter of time
In Texas this is what we would call an Aw, HELL, no! moment. What the heck is wrong with Maine?
“two dozen Somali youths swarmed and attacked two Maine residents in a park in Lewiston, beating them with sticks while laughing... a group of Somalis fired pellet guns at non-Somalis in the same park. A fight broke out and one non-Somali, a 38-year-old father of two, died days later from his injuries, ... a 10-year-old girl was jumped and beaten by a Somali girl at the park”
Cultural enrichment. Vote Dim and vote CINO.
Perhaps the good people of Maine should return fire with an appropriate caliber if a pellet is fired.
Ship ‘em all to Minneapolis. They know how to handle Somali’s there: they give them guns and badges so they can murder unarmed white women in the street for going out in public without a habib.
BETTER CHECK THOSE DAYCARE CENTERS.
Is This The Worst Scandal In Minnesota History?
Center of the American Expiriment ^ | May 14, 2018 | John Hinderaker / FR Posted by 2ndDivisionVet
Fox 9 television uncovers a far-reaching scandal: last year, more than $100 million in cash left the Twin Cities airport in carry-on luggage, bound for the Middle East and Africa: This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on.
On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms.
Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.
Where does the money come from, and where is it going?
It was coming from Hawalas, businesses used to courier money to countries that have no official banking system.
Some immigrant communities rely on Hawalas to send funds to help impoverished relatives back home.
[Former Seattle police detective Glen] Kerns discovered some of the money was being funneled to a Hawala in the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group.
Great. But the real scandal is where the money came from in the first placewelfare fraud:
As Kerns dug deeper, he found that some of the individuals who were sending out tens of thousands of dollars worth of remittance payments happened to be on government assistance in this country.
How could they possibly come up with such big bucks to transfer back home?We had sources that told us, Its welfare fraud, its all about the daycare, said Kerns. *** Five years ago the Fox 9 Investigators were first to report that daycare fraud was on the rise in Minnesota, exposing how some businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.
Its a great way to make some money, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said. In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers need to sign up low income families that qualify for child care assistance funding.Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up. Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare.
Video from that same case shows a man handing out envelopes of what are believed to be kickback payments to parents who are in on the fraud.Evidently welfare fraud in various forms is widespread in Minnesotas Somali immigrant community. This is, I think, generally known, but the scale of fraud disclosed here is astonishing:
We believe that theres a scope of fraud out there that we really need to get our arms around and ensure that those dollars are going to kids that really need them, Acting Commissioner for the Department of Human Services Chuck Johnson said.
He told the Fox 9 Investigators his agency has 10 daycares currently under active investigation for fraud.
Fox 9 has learned dozens more are considered suspicious.
Search warrants obtained by the Fox 9 Investigators show each one of the suspect centers has received several million dollars in childcare assistance funds.
According to public records and government sources, most are owned by Somali immigrants. *** Sources in the Somali community told Fox 9 it is an open secret that starting a daycare center is a license to make money. The fraud is so widespread they said, that people buy shares of daycare businesses to get a cut of the huge public subsidies that are pouring in.
Government insiders believe this scam is costing the state at least a hundred million dollars a year, half of all child care subsidies.
A friend who saw this news story wrote:This has me more angry than Ive been since the 2011 tax increase on the rich aka, working families. I cant put into words how utterly incompetent you must be to not have a checks and balances in place for tax payer funded programs, the tax payer dollars that people like myself and millions others diligently pay quarterly, leaving our children in childcare to work and provide for our families, pay taxes, only to have this hard work fund bogus programs that somehow are funding the same terrorist activities meant to harm our country?!!! Unbelievable. The commissioner and employees responsible for overseeing this mess should pay, every single one of them they should be fired they didnt do their job.
Her outrage is appropriate, but perhaps misguided. I suspect that many of Minnesotas liberals think that our bureaucrats performed their jobs very well: they siphoned off hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to finance liberal constituenciesthe principal purpose of government, according to our lib friends. So, how dumb are we? Honestly, I think it is impossible to plumb the depths of our stupidity. We need to totally revamp both our immigration policies and our welfare system.
Go armed. Stage in the park. Dare the skinnies to attack. Waste the retarded bastards.
Thanks to one John Baldacci ...
Millions of tax dollars sent to ***holes like Somalia came from welfare fraud: some of the Somalians were sending out tens of thousands of dollars worth of remittance payments.....sucking off taxpayers,by pocketing US government assistance 24/7......
How could they possibly come up w/ big bucks to transfer to Somalia? Its welfare fraud under multiple identities.
Dig deeper and you’ll find the “refugees” are using multiple identities.....AND borrowing each other’s children to maximize the daycare fraud.....and to get EITC checks.
“Two dozen” the best argument for larger legal gun magazines.
Amazing. Lewiston PD is literally across the street from Kennedy Park. Check it out on google maps/streetview.
