In what is just the latest incident of violence by Somali refugees in the United States, a gang has been caught on video attacking victims in a Lewiston, Maine, park.
Maine First Media reported witnesses said the attack began when one of the victims asked an attacker for a lighter for his cigarette. . . .
Main First Media said a 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.”
The report said a local mother recorded the video “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.” . . .
“Kennedy Park is a large common space in the middle of some of the poorest census tracts in the Northeast,” [Mayor] Bouchard told the agency. “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.” (Read more from “Somali Gang Storms U.S. Park, Attack Victims” HERE)
