But you’d never know it by the absence of reporting from the mainstream media. As BNI readers expected, the “not so young” youths are MUSLIMS in their 20’s. On the French Police Instructors Official Facebook Page, the first names and last name initials only of the attackers have been released: Mohamed C., Mohammed A., Moussa B. and Sélim Z. But you still won’t see the names in most of the media, defenders of the left’s new favorite “protected” class – Muslims.
Philippe Monguillot, 59, was left brain dead by the attack in the southwestern town of Bayonne last weekend and died in hospital on Friday,
The Bayonne prosecutor said Monguillot was assaulted after he asked four passengers on his No. 810 bus to wear face masks, which are required aboard French public transport because of the coronavirus pandemic. The driver was insulted, pushed off the bus and violently beaten and kicked in the head until he was brain dead, the prosecutor said.
I couldn’t find one major news publication that identified the attackers, either by their names or their religion (which was obvious by their names).
Not even the French (English language) publication FR24 reported the names of the attackers. Neither did the BBC, nor the right-leaning New York Post, nor NBC News, nor the usually reliable UK Daily Mail The names were released by French police on their Facebook page, but the only other place I saw them was on the website RAIR Foundation
RAIR Foundation On Sunday evening, July 5, around 7 p.m. in Bayonne, France, a gang of so-called “young people” boarded a bus without a ticket or coronavirus masks. After the driver, a 59-year-old father of three, asked them to vacate the bus, the gang violently punched and kicked him repeatedly, leaving him brain-dead.
Five unnamed “youths”, who are known to the police, have been arrested in the assault. Philippe Monguillot’s fellow drivers, his wife Véronique, along with thousands in the town have staged protests. Bus drivers have refused to go to work to protest the brutal attack and for the sake of their own safety.
Philippe’s Family Mourns
Philippe’s wife, Véronique and their three daughters, aged 18, 21 and 24, were allowed to go to his bedside on the nights of July 5 and 6th. “We touched him, smelled him, we talked to him. His head was deformed,” explained Véronique. She continued, “We’re going to kiss my husband, we’re going to say goodbye.”
“I don’t want to face the facts, I feel like I’m living a nightmare. He can’t leave like that, he was going to be 59,” she adds crying. Heartbroken, Véronique Monguillot remembers the couples plan’s for the future. Just a day before the attack, she and her husband sat at a restaurant in Biarritz discussing their future:
“Philippe was going to be retired in a year and we thought we were going to buy a motorhome in September. We still wanted to profit [continue working]. We were destroyed in a matter of seconds. We were destroyed, yes …”
Mr. Monguillot’s 18-year-old daughter Marie told French news outlet, Sud Ouest: “It’s not my father breathing, it’s the ventilator… we know that it’s over. We are empty… we have no more tears.”
