Was one Bosnian man, Zemir Begic beaten as a result of his nationality? (via facebook, Begic with friend).

Zemir Begic a newly wedded St Louis man was killed in front of his wife after a gang of youths took to being the 32 year old husband with hammers after he confronted them when they started banging on their car early Sunday morning.

Zemir Begic murder. Was his death a race crime? Cover up?

The apparently random attack came after Begic and his wife were returning home from a bar 1.15 am when a group of teens surrounded the man’s car and began banging on it.

Getting out of the car to confront the youths the man would find himself being yelled at and set upon with hammers to the head, abdomen and face.

Cops would tell that the newly wedded husband was found unconscious  after responding to an emergency call.

Told Arijana Mujkanovic, Zemir Begic’s wife of six months: ‘The last thing he did before he actually died was pull me out of the way and put himself in front of me, basically giving up his life for me.’ 

‘That is out of anger because he doesn’t deserve this and most of these people don’t even know him.’

Passenger Suad Nuranjkovic, 49, would tell that Begic was driving when a group of at least five teens started banging on the car.

‘I was afraid that if one of them had a gun, they were going to shoot me, so I didn’t know what to do,‘ Nuranjkovic said.

Reiterating: ‘The picture is in my head, what I saw.’

During the attack, Suad would tell he fled to a parking lot across the street.

Suad would also add the following: ‘I don’t know why this is happening to Bosnians. We could go around and shoot people, too, but we just want peace.’

Since the attack, two males, ages 15 and 16, have been taken into custody, with police now saying they know the identity of a third teen they suspect was involved.

The suspects are described as being a group of Hispanic and black males by the St Louis Post-Dispatch.

Cops would also tell that they did not believe the attack was related to Ferguson protests taking place in the city.

On Sunday evening, members of the Bosnian community protested Bejic’s death, raising the possibility that Begic, who came to the US in 1996, had been killed because of he was Bosnian.

The protesters, who numbered about 50, said another member of their community was murdered in 2013, when an armed robber killed Haris Gogic, 19, in his family’s store.

That said Police Chief Sam Dotson has discounted the assertion telling, ‘There is no indication that the gentleman last night was targeted because he was Bosnian,’ 

‘There’s no indication that they knew each other.’

Seldin Dzananoic, 24, also Bosnian would tell investigators that he too had come to be accosted by the group of teens with hammers on the same street about an hour before Begic was attacked, but had been able to fight them off with only minor injuries, raising the specter that the attacks may have indeed been race based?

Offered Dzananoic: ‘I’m just lucky. God is on my side.’

According to his Facebook profile, Begic worked for a removals company.

A GoFundMe page that had raised just shy of $5,000 will help cover the costs of Begic’s funeral, which is set to be held in Iowa.

The family emigrated from Bosnia to the United States in 1996 and eventually settled in Waterloo, Iowa.

Offered Begic’s sister Denisa: ‘He loved America,’ 

‘We come from Bosnia because we were getting killed and our homes and families were getting destroyed. Never in my life did I think he would get murdered.’

With a population estimated to be around 70,000, St Louis has the largest community of Bosnians outside of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Police Chief Sam Dotson has since told foot patrols would be stepped up in the area.

### Update:  A video (see below) has now been released whereby an witnesses has told that black youths involved in the beating had been screaming ‘Kill Whitey,’ in lieu of a Michael Brown rally with claims that cops have now initiated a cover up of the incident ….

    This is why i tell everyone that they should carry a firearm. I would not think twice about sending a bullet into each and everyone of those pieces of shit. Want to help the world? than clean the streets of Vermin.

  • Susan Wood

    Why not mention the gang was black youths early on in the story? Afraid?

  • Gregory Waits

    I appreciate the civil response. That isn’t always the case in here.

    Yes I am liberal, but that doesn’t make me the enemy.

    The whole police shooting/brutality issue is quickly going to go beyond the racial aspect of this case. It is obvious that the general public is growing tired of the militarization of main street America. It is Big Brother all over the place.

    The abuses by policemen (not all granted) are out of hand. And it is not just blacks and other nonwhites being killed or beaten.

    What’s the answer? I have no idea. But changes have to be made.

    If the shoe fits then wear it, buddy. He doesn’t have to affix labels to any group because they are very adept at doing it themselves. If you are talking about drug addiction, robbery, and murder, yes, white people do it too. Its when you get down to the rates relative to the populations race that black people get scary. Not in overall percentages. Maybe you should wake up. Its time we have that conversation about race that Eric Holder says we are too coward to have. You might hear some uncomfortable truths but this time it is going to be more then just black people lecturing us about racism. This time it is going to be a two way conversation because stuff like this is out of control. PERIOD.

  • Gregory Waits

    Great way to marginalize strangers with labels. You know nothing about me. Yes I am liberal.

    What they did was atrocious and completely wrong. And they should be punished for it.

    Your talk is nothing but hate filled tripe. Racist asshole…And I assume you call yourself a Christian.

    Well guess what Mr Liberal….
    When you have about 50 million Blacks who have been Career Welfare families……Free Free Free….And they want more and more and more…..so they steal, rob, loot, idenity theft, assault, and burn and kill……..Don’t you know they are Victims…..Cry Cry Cry….Sick of all these self made victims….
    This is the gangbanger lifestyle, and let’s not forget drug addiction and selling drugs…Drive-by shootings, home invasions.
    The Knock-Out game…..
    Wait Mr Liberal…..You may be the next victim of these out of control thugs with nothing better to do than raise hell about how Whitey and Middle Class Minorities are not giving them enough.
    They want to live like Beyonce and JayZ…..On Welfare…And Nothing Less will create riots…
    When they rob, loot, arm-rob, carjack, burn, attack……
    What…..?…….Just let them go…..?
    Are you crazy……You are the PROBLEM…Mr Liberal…
    Wait till Whitey gets enough of this….Just like these Bosnians….White People when they get fed up….
    BTW….I think this is a set up to the Blacks….And they walked into it like ignorant fools….all self important as if Whitey took something from them….
    I am tired of being robbed by crazies, Welfare Kings and Queens…Illegal Aliens…..

    There is only one way to go about your business in America today and that is to carry a defensive weapon, preferably a pistol with hi capacity magazines and 2 spare magazines. Yes its heavy but with open borders and the terrorists that now roam free, both Islamic and black, communist and black, and the vermin from south of the border, the more lead you can put into your targets the more likely you will live. Obama and his communist regime are working overtime to disarm the population, as the dangers of assault by street vermin and terrorists are increasing. Now Obama wants to disarm the police and replace their Ar-15’s and shotguns with body cameras. The communist media are all working to cover Obama, as are the schools and the arts community. The truth is that we are surrounded by communists everywhere. How did this happen? The American people allowed it to happen, thru their ignorance and stupidity. Now we are in the fight for our lives, as the Obama regime is using open borders and the invasion of illegal criminals to aid him in his efforts to destroy White America and create an America that looks like the third world, more like Somalia than Mayberry. But we have the 2nd amendment on our side, the Oathkeepers, and Veterans.

    A shame Whites in the immediate area didn’t converge on the negro and illegal rabble and exterminate them.

    I matter more than than animals with hammers. I’m glad we put them to sleep now…the gas chamber and the electric chair were for humans

    The media is in full blown cover up mode. Such lies, its disgraceful. The “teens” had just been coming from a Michael Brown rally and set upon thsi young man for no other reason then his white skin. Everyone knows it but the newspapers it seems. They were SCREAMING “kill whitey” and “Fuc_ white people” right befoe they killed this man but don’t worry, the newspapers and the Chief of Police can assure you that it isn’t race related. In fact, they don’t have any clue whatsoever about why this happened or what the motives were but the ONE THING they do know off tops is that it isn’t related to race. What a joke. I am so tired of being lied to by the people who are supposed to be in charge of protecting us. Then to top it all off they want to take away our right to own guns so that these kind of attacks can be accelerated and they can complete their plans of replacing the historic majority white American populace with third world turds who vote Democrat straight down the ticket as long as their monthly “gibs me thats” keep coming. For your viewing pleasure, here is a video of an eye witness on teh scene before and after the attack. She mentions in the video that the kids were screaming about killing white people and you can be sure that Police interviewed her and she told them that. Then the Police Chief insults our intelligence and LIES to us by telling us it wasn’t racially motivated. We need to cal for his resignation IMMEDIATELY. If the races were reversed they would already be calling for his pink slip.
