The suspect has been turned over to juvenile authorities. (link)
EARLIER: It was announced the oldest teen, Robert Mitchell (17), would be charged as an adult in the attack. He was the third suspect arrested:
Buried intentionally deep inside a Saint Louis Post dispatch article outlining the arrest of a 3rd suspect in the brutal murder of Zemir Begic you’ll find the following passage:
[…] Seldin Dzananovic, 24, said the teens with the hammers approached him farther north on Gravois about an hour before the attack on Begic. He said he was able to fight them off, suffering only cuts to his hands and neck.
“I’m just lucky,” he said. “God is on my side.”
You mean there was more than one white guy whose head was smashed by a group of “unarmed teens” wielding hammers?
Nothing to see here, move along, move along…
And what, per se’, could possibly be going on in/around the Saint Louis area in the lead up to Mr. Begic’s encounter with the “teens” – that would have motivated a roaming group of “unarmed black teens” seeking victims?
[…] St. Louis police Chief Sam Dotson spoke with residents at the street protest Sunday night. He said he was sorry about what happened and sought to reassure people the killing did not appear motivated by race or ethnicity.
Nothing to see here folks, so sayeth Police Captain Dotson; who just happened to show up on the scene because it’s now his job to, well, you know, deflect attention from the consequences of allowing the ridiculous and unlawful. I digress.
However, moments before Begic was attacked there were groups of black teens running down the street shouting:
‘Eff the white people, kill the white people.’
Yes, Zemir Begic, who happens to be white, was not the ONLY target of the five “teens” who happen to be “black”. Indeed, the suspects, and the victims, all appear to hold a similar profile. Nothing to see here folks, move along, move along. It’s all just a coincidence.
