Paris riots continue

As the riots in Paris continue on, this story comes to light:

::::::::A handicapped woman was doused with petrol and set on fire by youths during another night of rioting in Paris.

The 56-year-old suffered third degree burns to 20% of her body in the attack.

Witnesses said a youth poured petrol over the woman and then threw a Molotov cocktail on to the bus she was travelling on in the suburb of Sevran.

Other passengers were able to flee but she was unable to escape because of her disabilities.

(Hat Tip to LGF.) There goes any credibilty the rioters might have had. They doused a handicapped woman with gas and lit her off? What the hell did she have to do with either the alleged sparking incident (the electrocution deaths of some kids who ran into the transformer) or the so-called "root causes" of high unemployment and French social isolation of immigrants? Nothing, that's what. Any rational, moral individual would look at this story and realize that the rioting has gone way too far and cease participation. They aren't. Ergo: they don't care if some lady who can't run away burns to death.
