Some news stories make me sit back and say, "Whoa."
The perpetrators of this heinous crime are black and Hispanic, and range in age from 15 to 17 years old. The local police say it was not racially motivated, and many people are blaming the victim for getting out of his car.Zemir Begic, a 32-year-old man who emigrated from war-torn Bosnia almost two decades ago in search of a better life, was bludgeoned to death Sunday, allegedly by a group of hammer-wielding teenagers, one of whom has been charged as an adult. Begic was driving with his fiancee, Arijana Mujkanovic, and a male passenger at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday in St. Louis when five teenagers began pounding his vehicle with a hammer, according to police. When Begic confronted them, he was struck in the mouth, face, head and body with hammers and died at a nearby hospital. source
When I first read this story, I was immediately able to assume both roles in my imagination, first as the perpetrators and then as the victim.
Imagine being 15 years old and hitting a man repeatedly with a hammer. I can understand someone with a hand gun being somewhat removed from the act of killing. A hammer attack is not at all removed from the victim; it is up-close and personal. Imagine if you will, swinging a hammer and striking a person in the head. This is not a neat and clean way to kill someone. Head wounds bleed. A lot. Imagine the sound of a hammer striking a skull and blood spraying everywhere. Imagine being 15 or 16 sixteen years old and so insane that you would do such a thing.
Imagine being the victim being struck with those hammers. Imagine the pain and the incredulity of being beaten in such a way by teenagers. Imagine being his fiancee sitting in the car having to watch this transpire.
Anyone who thinks there is not already a race war going on in this country is not paying attention. The MSM is feeding the narrative that the Negroes of this country are understandably "upset" by so-called "white privilege." And all the usual race hustlers are keeping the flames of discontent at a fever pitch.
Zemir Begic's white man's privilege got him hammered to death in the street by insane teenagers.
Expect more of the same and a few words of advice: Stay out of black neighborhoods, avoid groups of young blacks congregating on street corners, and don't get out of the car. It's called prudence and it's a virtue.
