    Ah, here is a piece of the missing puzzle, now at least we KNOW something about these peaceful kids and the discrimation so obviously wrought upon them. Interesting how so many of the news accounts leave the reader to guess what is going on.

    Well at least the 'leaders' are now calling for 'calm', I thought they were 'calm'? :eek:

    So two teenagers were stupid enough to a) run from police b) run into an electrical power substation and c) jump off the fence without checking the ground below, and everybody blames the police like the guys are just innocent victims. That's just retarded.

    Yup, I like the quote from the kid that said, 'We respect the republic, they need to respect us...' While over 30 cars are burning. :rolleyes:

    I also think so.
    The problems came from this incident with these 2 younthes.
    The police forces came after in force in Clichy to bring back calm. Over 400 policeman in heavy suit were in the suburb this night. With CRS - Republican Companies of Security - , shields, armored guys, etc...
    Now, the calm is here. No more burning cars.

    This shows the tension in this suburb.

    But on the otherhand, I can understand the reaction of the other youthes: 2 of their friends are dead, so, they probably acted under fury. Not with the Reason.


    PS : and your video doesn't show the scenes of "urban guerilla"

    Sarkozy like to make believe that France is a non-right zone with murder at each street's corner.

    There is violence of course, but not all the inhabitants of the suburbs are dangerous, it's here agin only a minority. >> about 200 youthes fighting, in Clichy-Sous-Bois there is more and more more more people living.

    Sarkozy has good sides, but the side "insecurity" is quite boring : he does too much. He wants to bring the US ways, like in Hartford, in small french cities. But he doesn't understand than the criminality in France has no link with the criminality in USA.

    He plays on the fear of the population.

    Anyway, I hope the situation would be more quiet soon.
    CRS have arrested some people. We'll see.
