(CNSNews.com) – The sheriff of Hennepin County, Minn., told the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security on Wednesday about the threat of Somali gangs in his jurisdiction.

“I have been asked to testify today about the specific emergence of Somali gang-related issues we are having in my county,” Rich Stanek said in his prepared testimony.

Stanek represented the National Sheriffs’ Association at the hearing on “America’s Evolving Gang Threat.” He also serves on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s inter-agency Threat Assessment and Coordination Group and is president of the Major County Sheriffs’ Association.

Stanek said Minnesota is a “designated U.S. Refugee Resettlement Area,” with a Somali population ranging from 80,000 to 125,000 in the state. As a result, Stanek said, while the African population in the U.S. as a whole is about four percent, 18 percent of the Minnesota population is African because of the large Somali presence.

  1. This what you get when you have Somalis in your city.

    Bear in mind that a nation is simply a large scale laboratory. Somalia is just one such lab, and it is the worst among all other labs, because of Somalis.

  2. Why oh why do western governments invite Muslim Somalis to live and scrounge in their countries? We have the same problem here in Britain and they act like savages. They have no intention of working because to them the word “work” is an obscene four letter word. Even if they could get a job they wouldn’t be able to do it and they get far more on benefits anyway.

    They are certainly well advised on how to cream off the benefits system and if you look a bit closer you will probably find that they get better looked after than other immigrants. Why this is so is a mystery. They come from a third world country where crime is the norm and once in a first world country they find easy pickings.

    If only our ruling elite had to put up with these anti social throw backs instead of the people who have to work for a living. But of course they will make sure that it never happens.

  3. Help these people in their own countries. They do not need to brought to a foreign country and forced to try & adopt a foreign culture of which they are either not capable or not committed.. In fact most people, the ones with common sense , don’t want them here.

    And while we’re at it why is it only predominantly white countries that are the targets for these immigrants? The countries of non-whites seem to be free from pressure to take in third world refugees & immigrants.

    If you don’t like the immigration policies and I use that term lightly then write& call your political representatives and tell them what you think. Despite opinions to the contrary THEY WORK FOR YOU. Nothing will change unless you put relentless pressure on them.

    We’re flogging a dead horse trying to get the politicians to listen to us. They’re as corrupt as hell and are all part and parcel of the Western policy of multiculturism. This is a policy that has been hijacked and taken advantage of by the Muslim Brotherhood in their quest to rule the world via Islam. A policy which Western politicians are too stupid and too self interested to realise.

    But the most stupid people of all are the voters who put them where they are and maintain them in power. These sheeple will continue to do this until it is either too late or they learn to think for themselves. I don’t hold out much hope for either.

  5. I think that the way the Sheriff refers to all Blacks as Africans is as scary as the news about the Somali gangs, it means he is buying into the multicultural crap to a larger extent then the reports shows.

  6. @ tc72

    I know what you mean, but something must be done. Will those elected b*stards listen to the people who elected them or will it take an insurrection or civil war?

    The tail is wagging the dog and from where I stand it looks like a lot of politicians are guilty of sedition & treason and need to be tried, but who will do it? What’s your suggestion?

  7. When Pigs Fly
    It’s a fact of life that to have a successful insurrection at least 80% of the nation have to be dissatisfied with the actions of the politicians and this will show in the polling results. That’s just one of the reasons why we have elections. Right now throughout the West, even though people show their dissatisfaction, the elections show a figure of much less than 80%.

    While ever people keep voting on mass for the same old parties that are causing all this, the situation will remain the same. People have either to refuse to vote or vote for a party which is dedicated to putting the interests of it’s own people first as a genuine party should.

    The big problem is that the old established parties control the mass media thereby controlling the way people think, (or don’t bother to think). Thankfully today we have the new media of the internet if only people will bother to use it and not just for the social websites.

    There are so called extreme right wing parties emerging across Europe now who’s members and supporters are dedicated to national sovereignty and to the control of their own countries once again, and all are completely opposed Islam and to the aims of Islam. I myself support one such party, but predictably it is an uphill struggle in the face of the opposition from people in authority and the media that is controled by the corrupt establishment.

    We are the Davids against the Goliaths and we all know how that story ended.

  8. tc All of the manuals I have read say that if about 33% of the population support the revolution it can be successfully fought, to carry out a long term terror campaign only about 10% of the population needs to support it. In a society with free elections it only takes about 52% of the voters (here we are back to the 33%) and you can win the election. In the US with the electoral collage the numbers are skewed a bit but not much.
