Italian police have ended a dramatic ordeal for 51 students and their teachers who were tied up and held captive by their bus driver who threatened to torch everyone inside the vehicle.
Police broke glass windows in the back of the bus and got all the passengers to safety without serious injury before the flames destroyed the vehicle, authorities said.
The driver, an Italian citizen of Senegalese origin in his 40s, said he was protesting against migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told local TV.
Big deal as he should have been removed from the bus and shot on the spot after having the crap beat out of him before the cameras and then televised around the world.. Oops sorry not politically correct for the bleeding heart crowd but it is what it is
he Italian prison population has been declining over the past five years and this trend continued in 2015. Supporting this decline, non-custodial sentencing increased by 34%. The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) is currently judging four cases involving prisoner ill treatment or torture in Italian prisons.
All judicial psychiatric hospitals (OPGs) had been ordered to close by March 2015. However, four are still operating. They are regulary denounced by the civil society because of its poor living conditions, lack of prison staff and overcrowding.
Italy employs the most prison guards in Europe. The prison administration devotes 85 % of its budget to guard salaries. This leaves insufficient funds for prison maintenance and prisoner rehabilitation programs.

"Protesting" by trying to kill children?
Europe will one say stop importing scum like this by the thousands.
He's not an Italian citizen, he's Senegalese, and it shows.
