Flowers decorated a bus stop in Moorooka, Australia last weekend after a bus driver was killed and 13 passengers were injured when a man threw a molotov cocktail on the bus. The well-liked driver, Manmeet Alisher, was an immigrant from Punjab, and suspicions were quickly raised that it was a hate crime. A man was quickly arrested, and has been described in media reports as an “erratic loner,” which may cast doubt on the anti-immigrant theory; either way, what a tragedy this is.
