French cops caught beating black man

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

French authorities have suspended three police officers after they were seen on video beating up a black music producer in central Paris.

The incident on Saturday has prompted a fresh outcry over the conduct of French security forces.

On Monday police were accused of using unnecessary force as they dismantled a makeshift migrant camp in Paris.

The incidents come as the government tries to bring in laws banning the broadcast of police officers' faces.

British liberals have created a Europe of their imagination, but how closely does it resemble reality?

A central theme of fascism is a love of violence against ideological opponents, and so a visitor from outer space with a vague understanding of our human political philosophy would probably conclude that there was only one fascist state in the EU — France, where the brutality of the police is on a scale that would be unfathomable in England.

The last mass murder of protesters in England occurred in 1819, when 18 people were killed by authorities in Manchester; in France police in Paris killed up to three hundred unarmed protesters in 1961. Had anything even vaguely comparable happened during the US Civil Rights era it would have been the subject of about 500 films and even my children in an English primary school would now be learning about it now. But then Anglo liberals are fascinated with the Anglo world; not so much by the continent.

Dozens of rallies are planned on Saturday against a proposed French law that critics say will undermine the media's ability to scrutinise police behaviour, with the country shaken by footage showing officers beating and racially abusing a Black man.

And now they are rioting and burning. Just saw footage on television of Parisian firefighters getting pelted by objects while putting fires out.

Remember when the French police were beating up those yellow vest protesters a while ago...and the BBC ignored it...wrong type of police violence obviously.
