Quick! Tell Obama Public Transit is under attack! He’ll send help for sure!
So grateful to have been received into the welcoming arms of Europe, these excitable young men are sharing some of their own culture with their new hosts.
This is a game they like to play called “firebomb the busses”. As you can tell by the shouts of Allahu Akbar, it has a certain religious flavor to it.
Watch the footage:
Saint-Denis’ mayor Didier Paillard, of the Communist Party, said: “This act of premeditated vandalism, the consequences of which could have been tragic, follows an attempted homicide on a worker by a Molotov cocktail on July 22 and buildings being looted.”
The area has been the scene of numerous riots in the past, where in 2010 where gangs threw Molotov cocktails at one bus and torched several others. In 2005, huge riots in Saint-Denis saw 9,000 cars and dozens of public buildings and businesses set alight.
The following year violence erupted again after a teenager was arrested for attacking a bus driver, an act witnessed by the local mayor who gave evidence to police. Protesting the conservative mayor at least 150 youths, many with baseball bats, fought with riot police for more than four hours. The mob petrol-bombed buildings and smashed the windows of the town hall before gathering outside the mayor’s house, which they pelted with bricks.
