It happened in an upscale Minneapolis neighborhood near Lake Calhoun last week. A mob of about 20 to 30 young Somalian refugee men came parading through the neighborhood about 9:30 Monday morning, making terroristic threats.
The men stopped in front of one woman’s house, and the ugly comments turned to threats. “They were screaming at the house that they were going to kidnap you and they were going to rape you,” one Minneapolis resident told ABC5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. “It was a very traumatizing experience.”
The neighbors told the news media on Thursday that the Somali men have been harassing them throughout the week, but Monday was the most violent and scary.
They reported the men were driving onto the sidewalk and lawns, shooting off bottle rockets and screaming. One resident said, “The entire neighborhood is up in arms.”
Another neighbor said, “We couldn’t get them out. We didn’t know what to do.”
The woman whose home they stopped in front of and yelled the threats to on Monday had just recently moved to the neighborhood, and said she never expected this kind of problem.”
One neighbor said, “It needs to get nipped in the bud before it gets any worse because the escalation that occurs over a matter of hours could potentially kill or harm someone.”
In their online report of the incident at ABC5 Eyewitness News, they are only described as “multiple young men”, but the news broadcast version admits the men were Somalis.
The U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations, has reportedly resettled at least 132,000 Somali refugees into America since 1983, but others have reported that the numbers are much, much higher.
World Net Daily reports: The Somali refugee program has been among the most widely criticized of all refugee programs for the lack of assimilation that the Somalis have exhibited over the past 30 years. At least three-dozen Somali men from Minnesota have been charged since 2007 with trying to leave the U.S. and join overseas terrorist organizations including the Islamic State and al-Shabab. Others have been convicted of providing material support to terrorist organizations. That prompted the state’s U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger in April 2015 to admit that “Minnesota has a terror recruitment problem,” but he stopped short of saying the “S” word.
