Lewiston, ME: Somalis gone wild

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2018

Maine First Media has posted a video taken earlier this month in Kennedy Park in Lewiston, ME, the Somali capital of New England.

Kennedy Park

No time to do more than post the news, but here are some ‘highlights.’ Visit Maine First Media for the video.

Thanks to all my readers who sent me this story.

Gang of Somali Kids Attack Park Goers in Lewiston

It was an otherwise pleasant evening in Maine when two dozen Somali youth swarmed and attacked two local residents in Kennedy Park last Thursday evening.

The Somali mob attacked around 7:45 pm, just as the sun was setting on this historic city park in the heart of Maine’s second largest city.

A local mother recorded as a mob of teens and children, boys and girls as young as nine years old, brandishing wooden bats and other objects, along with fists, feet and sheer numbers to attack the two non-Somali defenders. At one point you can even here one of the hoodlums repeatedly daring the woman to, “stop me, b**ch.”

Lewiston Police tell Maine First Media one of the victims was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. However, no charges were filed.

Lewiston Mayor, Shane Bouchard says these types of incidents are common at Kennedy Park, but points to Lewiston’s low crime rate.

Mayor Bouchard: We have this all the time, but our crime rate is really low! (Could that be because people are FEARFUL of pressing charges?)

“Kennedy Park is a large common space in the middle of some of the poorest census tracts in the Northeast,” Mayor Bouchard said. “When you have large, diverse groups of people in the same place you are bound to have incidents. Lewiston is no different in that respect than any other medium to large city, except that Lewiston’s violent crime rate is one of the lowest in Maine.”

While the Mayor brings up Lewiston’s violent crime statistics, it is important to note, in this case, the victim didn’t press charges, meaning, statistically there was no crime. Incidents like this often go unreported and are not reflected in the numbers — something even Mayor Bouchard has to admit.

This is far from the first incident of Somalian attacks at Kennedy Park. Recently, 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. However, according to Lewiston Police Department Public Information Officer, Lieutenant David St. Pierre, that is not the department’s stance.

[….]

On any given day, dozens if not hundreds of Somali youth can be found occupying Kennedy Park and the violence is nothing new. Local residents bearing the brunt of these violent mobs are growing frustrated. Maine First Media was told it took police at least 7-8 minutes to arrive on the scene — despite the police station being right across the street from the park.

By the way, the primary resettlement contractor in Maine is Catholic Charities.

    These generous young people! They are offering diversity & cultural enrichment, Sh!thole-style.

    Diversity! Diversity! Why all the negativity?

    “We want to share with you some of our special Somali traditions! Street violence is something we bring from our home nation: Somalis Gone Wild!”

    Gentlemen, this is happening worldwide.
    The same goes on in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Scandinavia.
    It seems that every country with a White majority is affected.

    Maine is going through the same with so-called African refugees as we in Australia. In some Australian cities wrong-minded synpathies for the warring tribes has resulted in us bringing in peoples who are totally incompatible with a peace-loving, integrated nation. Our police and politicans continue to blow smoke up our rectums, denying there’s any problem, but people in the wild suburbs know otherwise.

  5. I wonder if the 10-year-old girl who was jumped and beaten in the park is going to be fed Libtard B.S. as to why that happened to her.

    Time to Repatriate and get them the hell out.

    Impeach this very young Mayor who isn’t doing anything about the violence. Fire the cops if they don’t want to do their job. 7-8 minutes and across the street? Come on! What are they? A bunch of cowards?

    I realize Maine is a liberal state, but these people better get armed and be responsible but protect yourselves and your neighbors and take the streets back or it will just be another shithole in America devised by the bleeding heart liberals who think these are the kind of people who belong in our Country. Start carrying a weapon. The laws in Maine are pretty lax. You don’t need a permit to carry a gun.

    INFORMATION USEFUL TO START PROTECTING YOURSELVES:

    Effective October 15, 2015, Public Law 2015, Chapter 327 (LD 652), “An Act To Authorize the Carrying of Concealed Handguns without a Permit,” allows a person who is not otherwise prohibited from possessing a firearm to carry a concealed handgun in the State of Maine without a permit. This law also authorizes a person to possess a loaded pistol or revolver while in a motor vehicle, trailer or other vehicle being hauled by a motor vehicle.

    Concealed carry without a permit is limited to people who are 21 or older, with the following exception: If a person is 18 years of age or older, and is on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States or the National Guard, or has been honorably discharged from the Armed Forces or the National Guard, and is not otherwise prohibited from carrying a firearm, the person may carry a concealed handgun. A person who is 18-20 years old and without the referenced military qualifications must have a permit to carry concealed. The law applies to both residents of Maine and non-residents.

    This is how a Parkland happens. Best place to live was a total crock. It was a KNOWN ticking time bomb waiting to happen. These are gangs, pure and simple. Get ’em outta;’ here. I would report it directly to the DOJ to look into as a gang crime.

    No crime reported does not equal low crime. HOW STUPID Can You Be? Citizens, WAKE UP!

    I posted about this yesterday, but here we get a look at the idiot response by libtard Mayor Bouchard.
    So you, know, folks, this sort of BS is going to spread to every community in America. Just take a look at Europe.
    All that’s going on worldwide, dealing with the muslims, is part of the goal of the globalist new world order.

    If the local police, located directly across the street, can’t handle park security, perhaps they should team with Catholic priests, and Imams to maintain order?

    Listen to the bigotry of this elite liberal mayor………It’s a poor neighborhood…..It’s a diverse neighborhood…….so, nothing can be done about the lawlessness …………. He might as well said: It’s not my rich neighborhood……so I don’t care ……….

    Let me guess. Without checking I’ll bet Maine restricts its citizens from carrying guns. If something like this is happening while it’s still daylight I can only imagine what goes on after full dark.
    Oh well, this is what the citizens in this small Maine town elected to accept. But to never have filed any complaint or charges was a big mistake. That alone will only encourage the gangs to become bolder.

    Sounds familiar. Same thing in St Cloud area. Mayor and City Council just yawn and pat themselves on the back as they push “Sustainability” narrative and welcome more. Citizens have no voice and the work very hard to ensure it stays that way.

    My solution: Put all these kids on a plane to Somalia and drop them off at the Mogadishu airport. Tell the Somali community what you did. Guaranteed better behavior in the future.
