Senegalese Migrant Sets Bus Full of Schoolchildren on Fire in Protest of Italian Immigration Policy

A man upset with Italy’s migration policies put the lives of dozens of middle school children at risk.

A Senegalese immigrant in Italy set a school bus with children inside on fire as a way of seeking revenge for Italy’s tough asylum and migration policies.

Ousseynou Sy, 47, doused the school bus he was driving with petrol and set it on fire in the province of Cremona near the city of Milan. Sources described him as having been an Italian citizen since 2004, having arrived in the country some time before.

A police spokesman described Sy as demanding Italy “stop the deaths at sea, I’ll carry out a massacre.” Fortunately, the 51 school children on board the bus were able to exit the vehicle before it was lit aflame, averting any casualties.

Sy is also said to have a criminal history involving sexual assault of a minor, raising questions about how such an individual was able to become a school bus driver. He allegedly ordered a teacher on the bus to tie the children’s hands with zipties, who declined to follow his command and endanger the middle school children.

Italy has been on the front lines of waves of mass migration from Libya and North Africa, usually consisting of migrants from sub-Sarahan African countries making dangerous attempts to cross the Mediterranean Sea to reach Europe.

Many migrants have drowned in the Mediterranean making the dangerous crossing, and Italians have shouldered the considerable burden of hundreds of thousands of migrants arriving in the southern European country. Discontent with an open-door migration policy has led to the election of a left-populist and nationalist coalition government in Italy, and Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has implemented policies to deter the arrival of migrant boats. 

Vessels associated with pro-migration non-governmental organizations, previously involved in picking up migrants just off the coast of Libya and shuttling them to Italian ports, have been denied access to the country. Increasingly, such vessels are choosing to bring asylum seekers to Spain as a way of avoiding Italy’s crackdown on what many have called institutionalized human smuggling.

Salvini’s nationalist immigration policies have become widely popular in the country, even though it appears one discontent individual was motivated to resort to violence and threats in an attempt to derail them.

Japan: Number of October Suicides Exceeded All COVID-19 Deaths Throughout 2020

The cure should not be worse than the problem itself.

Published

on

Japan has seen more of its people die in one month from suicide than from total COVID-19 deaths in 2020.

Japan’s National Police Agency reported that 2,153 people committed suicide in the month of October, while fewer than 2,000 people have died from COVID-19 all year.

While it is true that Japan has historically had high rates of suicide compared to other nations, suicides had generally decreased throughout 2020.

Despite the high number of suicides in October, the Japanese have avoided implementing draconian lockdowns and restrictions for the most part, though they have been seeing record high numbers of cases in the month of November. Thus it should be interesting to see what their suicide numbers for this month look like.
