Milan police detain Gambian migrant for attempting to snatch cross from Christmas tree

A Gambian man has been apprehended by Italian police in downtown Milan while climbing up a Christmas tree in a bid to remove a cross at its apex. Following a psychiatric examination, the man was admitted to a secure hospital.

A 21-year-old man from the Gambia was arrested by Italian police as he attempted to climb up the illuminated Christmas tree erected in Milan’s Piazza Duca d’Aosta on Friday, ANSA reported. Confronted by police about his odd behavior, the man had nothing to say other than “the tree is not good” while pointing to the cross, Il Giornale reports.

Gambia is 95.7% Muslim.

    Doing their best to “integrate” into European culture.

    “Following a psychiatric examination, the man was admitted to a secure hospital.”

    I have a different controversial theory… ======>

    “Muslims constitute 90 percent of the population of the Gambia according to CIA factbook.”

      It is curious that his psychiatric condition would compel him to attack the Christian symbol in the center of the town square and not, say, a lampost or a park bench. Pretty specific psychosis if you ask me.

        Very curious indeed. I would think that someone should look into this very specific condition, but only if it’s not racist.

          I think everything pretty much is these days. That’s what Anita Sarkeesian told me.

        Yes, it’s the Lone-Wolf-Driven-Berserk-by-Christian-Symbols syndrome.

      The percentage of Muslims used to be higher than 90%, so I suggest the CIA’s figures are incorrect.

    Having the “good” trees of Gambia around him may calm him down. Make it so.

    He needs to be thrown into a pile of pig shit.
