St. Louis police are currently investigating a possible hate crime in which a 26 year-old white woman was dragged from her car and beaten by three black thugs.
The Bosnian woman was driving down a deserted street at 5:30 a.m. Friday when three black men in their late teens and early twenties stepped in front of her vehicle. When the woman attempted to drive around them, they pulled out a gun and pointed it at her.
The men then broke her windshield with a crowbar, dragged the woman from her car and threw her on the ground. They proceeded to beat and kick her until one of the suspects grabbed her purse. When they saw that it was empty, the men immediately fled the scene.
The victim told police that she believed the crime was racially motivated, because the suspects made a point of asking if she was Bosnian. Just a few days ago, a Bosnian man was beaten to death by a group of blacks in St. Louis in what many are calling a hate crime.
Michael Tallie, a resident of the neighborhood in which today’s attack took place, told reporters that he believes the assault and others like it are all racially motivated.
“I would have to say so. I think it’s just blacks taking there aggression out on anybody that’s white,” he says. “It’s bad, it’s messed up, I hate it.”
When asked if white people should be scared, Tallie offered a chilling response: “Everyone should be scared.”
