‘Juveniles’ Attack Another Bosnian In St. Louis

Font Size:

Update: Surveillance footage shows that this woman was lying. I regret the error.

Last week in St. Louis, 32-year-old Bosnian immigrant Zemir Begic was murdered in the street by “juveniles” with hammers. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said it had nothing to do with Begic’s Bosnian heritage, let alone the color of his skin.

And nobody cared, because it doesn’t fit the narrative.

Now another Bosnian in the same neighborhood has been attacked by “juveniles,” and Dotson is changing his tune. Doug Moore at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch brings us another local news story that has nothing to do with anything on a national level:

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson has called in the FBI to help investigate what he is calling a hate crime because a woman assaulted by three [CENSORED] teens is Bosnian.

The Friday morning attack occurred in the Bevo Mill neighborhood where earlier this week a Bosnian man was killed with a hammer by a group of teens.

In Friday’s case, the woman, 26, told police that she was driving in the 4600 block of Lansdowne Avenue about 5:25 a.m. when three men in their late teens to early 20s walked in front of her vehicle.

When the woman attempted to drive around the young men, at least one of them pulled a gun and ordered her to stop. One of the men struck the windshield with an object police said could have been a crowbar. The woman was pulled from the vehicle…

One of the men asked where the woman was from. She said she was European.

“You’re a (expletive) liar. You’re Bosnian. I should just kill you now,” Dotson said of the woman’s account…

The woman was pushed to the ground and kicked before the attackers fled. A passer-by told police the woman was found unconscious.

Please note that I’ve removed any identifying information about the teens, because helping the police track down criminal suspects is racist.

Do #BosnianLivesMatter? I don’t see why they should. They’re not a Designated Victim Class in the United States, and they look white, so whatever happens to them is just too bad. If they don’t want to be dragged from their cars, beaten, and discarded in the street like garbage, they shouldn’t have come to America to escape genocide.

There will be no die-ins for Zemir Begic. You won’t see any professional athletes wearing “You’re Bosnian, I Should Just Kill You Now” T-shirts. If you don’t fit the profile, if you can’t be used for propaganda purposes, your pain and the pain of your loved ones is meaningless.

Welcome to Utopia.
