Cabbie: St. Louis feels like Somalia

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 14, 2013

Here is another story on the Somali murders in St. Louis from yesterday.  Hat tip:  Jim

If anyone sees a story with a report on what triggered the shooting spree, let me know.

From AP via the Detroit News:

 St. Louis has long struggled with urban violence, but the last week has seen a troublesome uptick in bloodshed. Police scrambled late Monday and early Tuesday to respond to five different shootings on the city’s north side that left 15 people wounded.

Elmi (Abdi Salam Elmi) said as a cab driver he sees too much violence in the city, and he compared St. Louis’ struggles to what he left behind in his war-torn African country.

“I feel the same as I did when I left Somalia,” he said.

Here is what I am wondering, is there some point where one could say a city, or a state, has an adequate supply of diversity?
