“We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality” (Ayn Rand)
This proceeding rewards criminality, reinforces a dhimmi posture on the part of French authorities toward the Islamic community, and hastens France’s cultural and societal demise. An update onÂ this story. “2 French police to stand trial in deaths of teens,” by Pierre-Antoine Souchard forÂ The Associated Press, October 22 (thanks to JW):
Why not? America gets a Â victory mosque at Ground Zero in NYC, Â an Islamic crescent where flight 93 crashed on 9/11, Â 8 years after 9/11 a Â Muslim POTUS Â Hussein Obama tries to bring about the end of America and the global jihad rages all around us. Some people believe that civil wars are Â inevitable.
To sue the police for doing their job is a perversion of justice.Â To build a monument that honors Mohammedan crims is utter dhimmitude and will come to bite them in the ass.
But the French, overall, are in deep denial.Â They still believe the problem is somehow manageable.
Meanwhile, the French “pension riots” (jihad) Â against the state continues, regardless:
PARIS — Two French police officers will stand trial accused of failing to save the lives of two teens whose 2005 deaths sparked weeks of riots around the country, lawyers said Friday.The officers will face charges of “non-assistance to a person in danger,” said a lawyer for the victims’ families, Jean-Pierre Mignard. The charge carries up to five years in prison and up to euro75,000 ($95,400) in fines.
Two boys, 15-year-old Bouna Traore and 17-year-old Zyed Benna, died while hiding from police in a power substation in the Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois on Oct. 27, 2005 when they were electrocuted. Another boy with them suffered severe burns.
Local youths blamed the police for the deaths and exploded in anger, setting cars ablaze and smashing store windows. That tapped a deep well of frustration among largely minority youth in poor housing projects nationwide, and fiery unrest spread across the country, raging for three weeks in the nation’s housing projects. Tensions between youths and police still plague such neighborhoods….
The lawyer for the police officers, Daniel Merchat, said his clients were “sacrificed on the altar of public opinion” and that there was not enough evidence of a crime….
An internal police review of the electrocutions faulted police officers for their handling of the incident. It confirmed the officers had been chasing the teens before they were killed, which the Interior Ministry and police had initially denied. The report said officers should immediately have notified French energy company EDF that the youths were hiding in the power station.
