Bring in people who were raised in a culture of violence, you’re going to get this.
“Police said the suspect had a criminal record, with convictions for sexual molestation and driving while drunk. He obtained Italian citizenship in 2004. Mr Salvini, the interior minister and head of the anti-immigration League party, asked why a person with a criminal record was allowed to drive a school bus.”
Good question. Especially when the conviction is for sexual molestation. But that such a conviction is on Ousseynou Sy’s record is not surprising, given the widespread belief among Muslim migrants that infidel women are theirs for the taking, in accord with the Qur’an’s permission to have sexual relations with the “captives of the right hand” (4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30).
“Interior minister officials said they were studying the possibility of revoking the driver’s Italian citizenship.”
Great idea. This incident should lead to a large-scale reevaluation of the wisdom of importing massive numbers of Muslim migrants, but given Sy’s stated grievance, it will more likely lead to more pressure from the political and media elites to shut down all opposition to the migration project.
“Bus full of children in Italy set alight by angry driver ‘in retaliation’ for migrant drownings in Mediterranean,” by Nick Squires, Telegraph, March 20, 2019:
An Italian bus driver of Senegalese descent was arrested on Wednesday after hijacking his own vehicle and setting it on fire, allegedly threatening to kill more than 50 children on board whose hands he had bound.
The 47-year-old man said he was acting in revenge for the thousands of migrants, many of them African, who have drowned in the Mediterranean in recent years while trying to reach Europe from Libya.
“No one will survive,” he said, according to police.
“He shouted ‘Stop the deaths at sea, I’ll carry out a massacre’,” said Marco Palmieri, a police spokesman.
The man, named as Ousseynou Sy, was driving 51 children from their middle school near the city of Cremona to a sporting event when he started making threats, brandishing a knife.
In an ordeal that lasted around 40 minutes, he started driving towards nearby Milan.
He rammed the bus into cars on a busy highway before it came to a stop at a roadblock set up by police.
He then doused it in petrol and set it on fire.
Police smashed the windows of the vehicle to allow the children to escape.
Television footage showed thick black smoke and flames billowing from the bus, which was reduced to a burnt-out hulk…
One of the children told reporters that the driver had threatened to pour petrol on them and set them alight.
“He handcuffed us and threatened us. He said that if we moved he would pour out the petrol and set fire to it.
“He kept saying that people in Africa are dying and the fault is Di Maio and Salvini’s” – a reference to Luigi Di Maio and Matteo Salvini, the leaders of the two parties that make up the populist coalition.
Mobile phone footage taken by passing motorists showed dozens of children screaming in panic as they ran away from the vehicle.
At least 12 children were taken to hospital for bruises, smoke inhalation or because they were suffering from shock.
Police said the suspect had a criminal record, with convictions for sexual molestation and driving while drunk. He obtained Italian citizenship in 2004.
