Four teenagers in St. Louis (near Ferguson) attacked a car and killed the driver with hammers.
Zemir Begic was heading home from a bar at 1:15 a.m in St Louis when a group of teenagers surrounded his car and began banging on it. The gang of teenagers used hammers to beat a newlywed to death in front of his wife and friend after they attacked his car early on Sunday morning in an apparently random attack.
The kicker is . . .
Police said Begic was not targeted for being Bosnian and did not say if there was a connection to unrest after Ferguson grand jury decision.
My guess is that the four kids out roaming the streets with hammers were not out there looking for roofing jobs. Strange that the race of the attackers was not given. Why would the police even proffer that the victim was not targeted because of being Bosnian if the little hoodlums were not Black?
It is obvious that they used those hammers for what they intended to use them for. Bet you a cheesesteak that those kids have no clue what a Bosnian is? Probably think it is some kind of doughnut.
No chance this was a revenge killing? I mean, the picture of the Bosnian sure looks like a White guy. But since the race of the attackers is not given, I guess we will have to wait for the investigation to unfold. No need for President Obama, Eric Holder, or Jessie Sharpton to get involved before the facts are out. Oh, wait.
Where are our legislators calling for the “Begic Bill?” A law restricting possession of hammers.
It is past time to get serious and stamp down this kind of idiotic, criminal behavior. And to stop making excuses for it. The anger at work here was created by and festered by Democrats running that city and this country. Compounded by a welfare system that replaces parental responsibility and incentivizes broken families. The anger ought to be directed at the politicians in Washington who respond to things like this with more welfare and less responsibility. The Obama administration has dealt minorities the highest unemployment and falling average family incomes. That is part of the problem. But still, is no excuse to go out there and kill anybody.
