An Ugly Turn

Things could be taking a very bad turn in Missouri.

The St. Louis police chief has asked for the FBI’s help investigating what he believes was a hate crime attack against a woman in the same Bosnian neighborhood where a man was beaten to death days earlier by hammer-wielding teens, and where assaults have spiked dramatically in recent months.

The 26-year-old Bosnian-American woman told police she was stopped in her car by three African-American teens early Friday morning in the city’s Bevo Mill section, where tens of thousands of Bosnians settled following the civil war in the former Yugoslavia 20 years ago. The incident occurred just blocks from where Zemir Begic, a 32-year-old Bosnian-American, was beaten to death by teenagers with hammers a week earlier.

One of the assailants flashed a gun and ordered the woman out of her vehicle and another hit the woman’s windshield with what police believe was a crowbar, authorities said.

“You’re Bosnian,” one of the suspects allegedly said. “I should just kill you now.”

The woman, who was pulled from the car and then beaten, was found unconscious by a passerby, police said. The alleged statement prompted St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson to present the case to the FBI.

“As of now, officers are investigating this incident as a bias crime based on the victim’s account of the incident,” the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said in an email Monday. “The investigation is ongoing.”

Authorities said they don’t believe the attacks on Begic and the woman are related, but acknowledged a disturbing rise in violent crime in the area in recent months. Although police have not made a connection, the crime spike coincides with the rioting that followed the August police shooting of a black teenager by a white police officer in nearby Ferguson, Mo.

Bevo Mill residents, whose neighborhood has seen a cumulative 24-percent rise in aggravated assaults over the last three months, say assaults and threats by packs of teenagers against Bosnians have become the norm. One who spoke to FoxNews.com on condition of anonymity due to safety reasons claims he and his family experienced a similar attack and said there is a disturbing pattern of violence against white residents in the area.

“It is common for African-American teens to walk in the middle of the street and block in cars at intersections,” said the man, who has lived in the neighborhood for half a decade. “We have been stopped at intersections in Bevo and our car attacked by teens who pound on the car — laughing at us.”

“They only do this to white individuals, who they have learned will generally not respond. There is a pattern here and it is racially motivated,” he alleged. “Many of us are arming ourselves in order to avoid becoming the next victim to be beaten to death in the streets.”

One of my favorite words is “mokita” which means the truth everyone knows but agrees not to discuss. Every culture has things like that. In America, everyone knows one truth about race relations. That is, if blacks ever go to war with whites, they will lose everything. When you are 13% of the population, you always have to navigate around the other 87%. Given America’s race history, “navigating” means blacks  can raise holy hell from time to time when they feel cheated, but they can never cross the line into full revolt.

Bosnians are pretty good at the tribal warfare stuff. Probably better than their black neighbors. Given our insane immigration policies, I’m betting there are quite a few ex-military/ex-militia living there in Missouri. You can be sure they will be dialing their kin back home as well. Garden variety white people would be fleeing to the suburbs. I’m thinking these Bosnains are home polishing their weapons tonight.

I wonder if LeeBong will be wearing a Bosnian flag shirt to show solidarity with those victims.

The ugly turn is that white people don’t fight back. You don’t see the punks attacking Mexicans.

But come to think of it, there are places where this does not much happen to whites. Like where I live. Vegas. A lot of people carry, but especially so in their vehicles. I do. And the cops here are very even handed. This is understood. They shoot everybody.

Mokita is a wonderful word. I had an example when I attended, back in the ‘nineties, a meeting in the local park because residents where growing scared to walk there because of the so-called teenagers who drove everyone but their own kind out of the park. Everyone at the meeting knew who these teenagers were and what ‘cultural group’ they belonged to, but mokita was in full force and amid much talk of “reclaiming the park for locals” no-one mentioned who were reclaiming the park from. The agreement was firmly in place that no truth be told, so we all… Read more »

James, I see that, too, from the lily-white pasties that wouldn’t be able to hurt an insect, let alone fight for themselves. But here in SoCal, we have these whites we call ‘flat-bills’, the dudes that wear a baseball hat with a flat bill, and have tattoos and drive lifted trucks – some call them “bro’s” – these fellas are LOOKing for fights. If a race war ever broke out, these guys would be the first ones in line. I teach at a suburban high school that is about 50% white, the rest split three ways Black-Mexican-Asian. The blacks aren’t… Read more »

It still remains a great irony that when any shooting of national note occurs, prominent among the anti-gun crowd are the “civil rights” leaders of a certain racial make-up, screaming for gun control amongst the law abiding portion of their followers!!!

Too funny! They claim they want a war, but their own huckster/leaders have effectively dis-armed them. These clowns fail to realize you don’t bring protest signs to a gunfight.
