Man Who Caused Outburst At SW Lincoln Restaurant Shares Personal Life On YouTube

LINCOLN–(KFOR Oct. 10)– There’s more about the man who caused the ruckus Tuesday afternoon inside Chick-Fil-A at 27th and Pine Lake Road and later died from a gunshot wound.

About a week ago, 48-year-old Joseph Cimino created a series of videos on YouTube, talking about the challenges at home he faced growing up in New Jersey to his time working in a prison and having a nervous breakdown as a young adult.

“I was institutionalized several times and I was out of work for 11 months,” Cimino said in one of his videos.

Later in the series of videos, Cimino expresses hate for the Democratic Party and his support for President Trump, saying the president has a “fire burning in his (Cimino) heart again, for the right things, for the right politics, for America.”

“All I know is, is I hope Donald Trump is victorious in everything he does because I believe in everything he’s doing,” Cimino added.  “And he helped save my bacon.  God bless him.”

Cimino was shot and killed by 39-year-old BNSF law officer Christopher Hill, after Cimino made threats toward employees and customers inside the Chick-Fil-A.  Lincoln Police say Cimino did have a stun gun and died shortly after he was wounded.
