Riots in Paris

#1
Following the riots in 2005, it appears Paris is suffering some unrest again.

Police said 21 officers were injured in the rioting in the northern suburbs of Villiers-le-Bel and Arnouville.

The Villiers-le-Bel police station was set ablaze and another in Arnouville was pillaged, police say. At least seven people were arrested.

The violence - reminiscent of riots in 2005 - lasted for more than six hours.

In 2005, the deaths of two youths in nearby Clichy-sous-Bois led to France's worst civil unrest in more than 40 years.
And let's face it, it's not often you hear of pillaging in Europe these days. Unless you discount Catterick on a Friday night.

More to come? Or, will the French authorities bring about some of that renouned discipline and control that we see, whenever their farmers are blockading ports, etc.? :)

Just what the French need a return to the core values of 1788.

They need to learn to work for a living rather than live off socialist ideas and EU handouts...

I can't help but feel a sneaking envy that the French populace are so often willing to take to the streets to oppose their government.

Could this be the reason they never fight outside French territory because they're saving all their strength for fighting in it?

Bunch of onion selling surrender monkeys!

I think you'll find its 'sans culottes', mon vieux.

Most of the rioters involved in this trouble and the riots in 2005-and plenty of trouble in between-are unemployable immigrant youth living on endless welfare handouts.

They live in estates avoided by most of French society and a high proportion of them have never worked and probably never will.

After the troubles in 2005 the then interior minister Nicolas Sarkosy the interior minister described them as riff-raff.Probably a fair point.The French voters seemed to agree with him as he was subsequently elected as president.

What is needed is a good dose of the CRS to put down these feral chavs with maximum force(tear gas,water cannon and taszer guns should do the trick) and point out if you don't like in France,you can f*** off elsewhere.

They do work, they deal drugs.

That's what they do anyway, but the CRS can't keep them in prison forever, they are released and start again. There is really no solution to this, it's the new reality we will have to live with.

The trouble is that they may well f*** off over here.

Perhaps the Singapore solution to drug dealing needs to be applied here.
As well as the indonesian approach to masturbating and the Iranian approach to "saying something we don't really approve of".

was in Paris on saturday. The best thing about this whole civil unrest melarky is the free metro and trains. No ticket inspecters and all the barriers were wide open. shame about all the pickpocketers, drug dealers, smell of p'ss, stale wine and beggers.
