    A second 11-year-old boy was arrested Thursday morning in connection with setting ablaze the Orthodox Jewish school bus in Crown Heights Sunday night, NYPD chief of detectives Robert Boyce said.

    The second boy was arrested by the Hate Crimes Task Force Unit after receiving a crime stoppers tip, a NYPD official told JP.

    He is expected to face similar charges as Calvin Payne, who was charged earlier this week with arson as hate crime and criminal mischief as hate crime.

    Payne and other youths, were captured on video setting the parked bus on fire in the early evening of Sunday. Boyce had said in a press conference on Tuesday that the incident was labeled as a hate crime because the suspects would know that the yellow bus was serving religious schools in the community.

    New York Fire Department marshals and the NYPD arson squad are investigating how the youths started the fire.

    “I stand with my Jewish brothers and sisters and my thoughts go out to all those who were impacted by this senseless tragedy,” said Council Member Mathieu Eugene in a statement regarding charges being brought upon Payne.

    “I am saddened that such a young boy has committed this act of violence. Our society must do more to ensure that our children are raised to be tolerant, as well as knowledgeable about the ramifications of their negative actions. Our city is diverse, with many different cultures, and all people have a right to feel safe in their communities. No one should be targeted for who he or she is, and New Yorkers must come together and call for tolerance,” Eugene said.

      Mr. M. Eugene, the children might learn from their American society: materialistic and violent, from the top down. Just read the news.
      This should make one even sadder, or angrier.
