St. Louis Muslims Thoughts On Bombing Suspects

The country has been griped all week by the events surrounding the bombings at the Boston Marathon this past Monday; a week full of surprises in the case and its investigation.  Thursday late night the two suspects identified by the FBI, are suspected in the death of police officer, critically injuring another,  one of the suspect brothers is killed by the police an the other on the loose.

All day the nation has been hearing from the suspects family members in the U.S., in Central Asia and from students and friends in the Boston area.

One of the suspect said in a tweet, in effect, he didn’t have any friends in America.

How do Muslim feel about living in America?  What are they thinking these two Muslim suspects?  Is living in America, difficult in America?

News11 Anchor/Reporter Dan Gray went to the Bosnian community in St. Louis to ask these questions?

Bosnian Muslims have been coming to the St. Louis area since the series of Balkan Wars in the 1990’s.  They now number 60,000 in the area.

Listen to what some residents has to say at Grbic’s Restaurant in South St. Louis.
