Safari Park Rules

Commenting on the murder of Zemir Begic on November 30 by hammer-wielding “youths” in St. Louis, the Conservative Treehouse has adumbrated the Safari Park Rules: if you find yourself “in the wrong place at the wrong time,” stay in your car with the doors locked.  Otherwise, you could be an accessory to your own murder.

Unfortunately, “the wrong place at the wrong time” can be a Chasidic neighborhood in North Miami at 9:00 on a Saturday morning, as Rabbi Josef Raksin discovered.  The rabbi was walking to temple last August when he was murdered by a couple of African-Americans for being a Jew in public.

The Treehouse noted the fact, buried deep in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch story, that Begic was not the first victim of Mike Brown’s avengers.  An hour earlier Seldin Dzananovich was attacked by “youths” with hammers.

Earlier in the day, Bob McCarty posted what appeared to be an authentic video from an eyewitness, who reported the “youths” were yelling “F*** the white people, kill the white people,” before murdering Begic.

If you yell “fire” in a crowded theatre long enough, someone is likely to get trampled to death.
