Speaking to some of my friends yesterday, it turns out the bus driver was not killed in police custody. The story I wrote about a few days ago around the Ramses Riots turns out the other way around. Apparently the micro-bus driver got into an argument with a high ranking police officer who'd asked the driver for his papers. The driver didn't oblige. After being asked to come out of his bus, the driver slapped the officer. Apparently it was the crowds of people that attacked the driver enraged with his behaviour.
Every story has another side to it and while we're in between calm and chaos here, it seems wiser not to take every story at face value. This also applies to reports in the media.
A new day a new lesson.
