GoFundMe campaign launched to help family of St. Louis man murdered in hammer attack

On Sunday, 32-year-old Bosnian native Zemir Begic was killed by at least two teenagers in a brutal attack in St. Louis:

Police said Begic was in his vehicle about 1:15 a.m. in the 4200 block of Itaska when several juveniles approached and began damaging his car. Police said Begic got out to confront the juveniles, who began yelling at him and hitting him with hammers.

Begic, 32, who lived in the 4200 block of Miami Street, suffered injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth. He died at St. Louis University Hospital.
[…]
She said she knows some Bosnians are upset over her brother’s death because they believe the suspects, who are black and Hispanic, targeted Begic because he was Bosnian. She said she wants people to know her brother would not have judged them because of their race; he had friends of many racial and ethnic backgrounds.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist Begic’s family in covering funeral expenses.

Twitchy.

    “A video shot by a resident of South St. Louis’ Bevo Mill neighborhood reveals heretofore-unpublished details about what happened near the intersection of Gravois Avenue and Itaska Street before the attack that left Zemir Begic, 32, dead.”

      At the 45-second mark, the woman who recorded the video — whose name I will not share for reasons of her personal safety — says, “And, of course, it’s a white kid, right after black people running up and down the street saying, ‘Eff the white people, kill the white people.’ This is what we have.”

        Yep, no sign it was a racial attack at all!

        “But detectives do not believe Begic’s Bosnian heritage or the color of his skin served as a motive in any way, police spokeswoman Schron Jackson said.”

          Gary of pislamonausea Central wonders why he was there? Did he live in the area or was there some Muslim angle (I doubt it but Gary is totally off the wall on Muslims).

            I know a couple of Bosnians. The ones I know don’t seem to be religious. Apparently there is a big community of Bosnians in St. Lois and they tend to stick together. People are saying they might try to get revenge. They did have some sort of protest, which you wouldn’t get with more assimilated whites.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            They (Bosnians) live in the area. He looks too clean to be a Muslim.

          What happened to her hair? Was she in a nuclear power plant accident?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between some black women’s hair styles and straight-up industrial accidents.

            Now now. She could have cut her hair in solidarity with a cancer patient, or sold it for a worthy charity cause. There are plenty of reasonable explanations why her head looks like a rotten peach.

            My guess is, “Look at me! I so pretty I don’t needs hair.”

            Btw, you seen that woman with the hair helicopter sculpted on top? I’ll try to find a link.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Nobody wants “black hair”, least of all black people.

            BTW, both of my kids did that.
            They grew their hair long for a year (actually a bit longer) and then donated it to make cancer wigs.
            That was before my son went into the Marines.

          • Rosenmops

            wtf?

          • Frau Katze

            New fashion statement is my guess.

        • Exile1981

          So they killed him for his skin color but that’s not a hate crime because blacks can’t commit a hate crime – did I figure out the secret code?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            The actual code is that blacks can do anything they want.
            Ya big fat racist!

          • Exile1981

            Ok sorry, I’ll report myself to a re-education camp.

  • Xavier

    Obama, Sharpton, Holder, Jackson, et.al., don’t just want a race war; they want a race war instigated by whites. They want to be able to point at the hate crime record and show an overwhelming number of white injustices, particularly by white authority figures. Therefore black crimes must be ignored and whites unjustly convicted by the media.

    They are tearing this country apart to institute socialism.

    • Frau Katze

      They might get a lot of disorder before the socialism. Americans seem too individualistic to cave easily. I read an article comparing the UK “white-van” man with the St George’s flags to a US man driving a pickup with a gun rack and Confederate flag. I don’t think the latter will surrender easily.

    Black and hispanic? Sounds like a perfect storm of diversity to me.
