Here’s a local news story that has nothing to do with anything. It’s a completely isolated incident, and don’t you forget it, racist.
The violent death of a 32-year-old Bosnian man beaten to death with a hammer by a group of teens sparked a spontaneous protest in the Bosnian community where demonstrators blocked traffic at Gravois and Itaska Sunday night in south St. Louis.
Zemir Begic, 32, was found unconscious with apparent injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth in the 4200 block of Itaska at 1:15 a.m. Police say Begic was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased…
According to police, Begic was in his vehicle when “several juveniles” approached his car and began damaging it. When Begic exited his vehicle the teenagers yelled and struck him with hammers.
If Barack Obama had a son, well… never mind.

To recap: Last August in a suburb of St. Louis, a 6’4″, 300-pound man robbed a convenience store and assaulted the clerk. Then he walked down the middle of the street in traffic, refused a lawful order from a police officer, attacked the police officer, and was shot and killed.
Then, a bunch of racebaiters who make their living by turning people against each other swooped in, told a bunch of lies, and convinced a whole lot of suckers that the facts and evidence are secondary to their self-pity.
As a result, a lot of moronic and inflammatory rhetoric is flying around, at least a dozen stores in that area have been destroyed, and now a guy who had nothing to do with any of it has been beaten to death in the damn street by “several juveniles” with hammers.
Nothing to see here.

Update: Listen carefully to what they tell you. Listen even more carefully to what they don’t.
"There’s no indication #ZemirBegic was targeted for being Bosnian." The juveniles didn't ask for a passport before KILLING HIM WITH HAMMERS?
