WHAT'S HAPPENING IN MY CITY?
Since the police shooting of an unarmed
black youth last month,
there's been an unsettled feeling
in St. Louis.
Violence has returned to the streets,
this time in the south section of the city.
Occupied by Bosnian immigrants.
Two days ago, 3 teen youths pulled
a young Bosnian male from his car
and beat him to death, with hammers.
And then today, a Bosnian woman was pulled
from her car, again by teen youths,
and brutally beaten.
The violence is spiraling out of control,
in heavily ethnic neighborhoods.
We need to come together,
to understand, to talk, to try.
Violence is not the answer.
