Death of Donald Giusti by Mob in Lewiston Maine



June 12, 2018 Death of Donald Giusti by Mob in Lewiston Maine  Main First reports that about a month after reports of previous attacks by unruly Somali youth, there was word of an anticipated fight and a group of white friends, some who had been drinking, gathered at Kennedy Park at 10:45 pm Tuesday night. When a car with Somalis drove by and passengers opened fire into Kennedy Park pellet guns, and pulled over on Knox St, people from the park rushed over to confront the mob in the car. They were met by dozens of young Somalis brandishing weapons. One threw a rock at Donald Giusti's head and then the mob started kicking him while he was on the ground. The 38-year-old was on life support at Central Maine Medical Center for three days before dying of his injuries.  Giusti's family described the 38-year-old as a former brawler who got into fights but  had been trying to turn his life around. While the family told media the conflict was between whites and Somali immigrants who have recently immigranted to Maine with 10,000 in the Lewiston / Portland area, most media made no mention of any racial animosity, though police were  investigating allegations that there were  racial elements to the fight, an assertion made by many in the aftermath of the brawl and admitted “There were certainly different ethnic origins involved in the fight,”

there is no official police report on what caused the melee, by piecing together various witness accounts, we can give a very basic outline.

Residents say tensions were high as harassment in the area around the park has been particularly bad the past couple of moths — including previous attacks by a gang of Somali kids at Kennedy Park. Word had spread about an anticipated fight that was going to erupt at the park Tuesday evening. So, a group of friends gathered looking for retribution. From witness reports it does sound like some members of the group had been drinking.

At one point, a car drove by and passengers opened fire into Kennedy Park with BB or pellet guns. The vehicle pulled over on Knox St., a few people from the park — including the victim — rushed over to confront the mob in the car.

Almost instantly, the three men were bombarded by at least a couple dozen young Somalis brandishing weapons. Police arrived quickly, but the assailants had already fled the scene.

One man –who was beaten with a brick to the head — was taken to the hospital and is listed in critical condition.
