Life in Little Mogadishu

Violent crimes increased by more than 50 percent in 2018 in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, nicknamed “little Mogadishu,” which authorities attribute to Somali gang activity in the area.

Buried in a recent Star Tribune article was the fact that violent crimes jumped from 54 in 2010 to 84 in 2018, an increase in roughly 56 percent. Authorities attribute the violence to rivalries between Somali gangs, such as the Somali Mafia, the Somali Outlaws, the Hot Boyz, and Madhibaan with Attitude, Alpha News reports.

According to a 2014 Southside Pride article, the Outlaws and Madhibaan with Attitude have a rivalry that stretches back years, and likely resulted in the murder of two Somali men in April 2014. That article notes that the summer of 2013 was a particularly bloody season for gang warfare, which produced at least 4 killings.

    When your enemy is killing himself, be sure to give him plenty of room – and encouragement.

      Thing is why do we allow them to do it in our country…If we had any unity we could drive them out and make it our country once again…But everyone is still to comfortable to do anything more that buy more stuff…Sad That…

    Should pass to machetes, cage them in a football stadium and drop pennies then watch them kill each other.

    Only 4 killings in 2014 ? Chicago sees that on a sunny afternoon. They need to step up their game.

    There should be a license for hunting them…..limit ammo to 7.62 millimeter minimum, with an optional permit for .22 magnum, rifle only….

    They used to call those tall buildings the ghetto in the sky or the crack stacks. It used to be mostly students, it’s gone downhill since the 80’s.
