Arson at Australian Bank, but At Least No One Was Shot

Filed under: Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:55 PM (23:55)

Yesterday, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation [ABC] reported that a court in Melbourne released a video from CCTV archives of an asylum seeker from Myanmar setting fire to a Springvale branch of the Commonwealth Bank.

Apparently, the guy in question, 22-year-old Nur Islam, allegedly got pissed off because he had to stand in line to make his withdrawl, so he left the bank, went to a nearby gas station, then returned to the bank with a 1/3-full gas can.

Mr. Islam then allegedly proceeds to dump a bit of the petrol on the bank’s floor by the customer entrance, and light it with a cigarette lighter.

It seems that Mr. Islam wasn’t a very good alleged arsonist, as he was reported to have been hospitalized with burns over sixty percent of his body.

Watch the video clip above again — the big fireball heading towards the camera is allegedly Mr. Islam, post-ignition.

But . . . but . . . Australia has #gunsense, so no one was shot by an unsanctioned person carrying a firearm, and that’s what’s important to the oppressives and regressives.

So while no one was shot by Mr. Islam, no one else was able to use a firearm (or any other sort of weapon, it seems) to stop Mr. Islam’s alleged amateurish attempt at arson.
