French car burning cult goes wild, injures 77 police

AP/NY Times:

Rampaging youths rioted for a second night in Paris' suburbs, firing at officers and ramming burning cars into buildings. At least 77 officers were injured, a senior police union official said Tuesday.

The overnight violence was more intense than during three weeks of rioting in 2005, said the official, Patrice Ribeiro. He said that ''genuine urban guerillas with conventional weapons and hunting weapons'' were among the rioters.

The riots were triggered by the deaths of two teens killed in a crash with a police patrol car on Sunday in Villiers-le-Bel, a blue-collar town in Paris' northern suburbs.

Residents claimed that officers left the crash scene without helping the teens, whose motorbike collided with the car. Officials cast doubt on the claim, but the internal police oversight agency was investigating.

Rioting first erupted in Villiers-le-Bel on Sunday night. It grew worse and spread Monday night to other towns north of Paris. Rioters hurled stones and petrol bombs at police, authorities said.

The use of firearms added a dangerous new dimension. Firearms are widespread in France, and police generally carry guns. Guns, though, were rarely used in the 2005 riots that spread to poor housing projects nationwide.

Police are facing ''a situation that is far worse than that of 2005,'' said Ribeiro, national secretary of the Synergie officers union.

''Our colleagues will not allow themselves to be fired upon indefinitely without responding,'' he warned on RTL radio. ''They will be placed in situations which will become untenable.''

President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is visiting China, appealed for calm and called a security meeting with his ministers for Wednesday on his return to France. The violence and the use of firearms against officers presented his government, in office since his election victory in May, with a stern test.

"Youths" is the French expression for Muslims. In the UK the term "Asian" is usual. Earlier reports indicated that the two killed were on bikes that were stolen and they were fleeing arrest. This sounds more like urban warfare by a Muslim insurgency. It also has the appearance of a violent tantrum by groups who fill they should get away with crimes. The French cannot afford to let that condition fester. It has to suppress the car burning cult now.

CNN
has more on the violence. "Some residents, populated largely by immigrants and their French-born children, accused police of fleeing the crash scene. However, three eyewitnesses, interviewed on TV, said the police stayed and tried to revive the two boys with mouth to mouth resuscitation." Facts matter little to a mob that rejects the rule of law.

  1. They should have cut this lunacy off long before it started. Weak-minded European countries are not only losing their national identities, they're losing their national security as well. I hope the American southwest takes note of what happens when you allow rampant unchecked immigration. This from a traditionally liberal Kiwi Maori.

  2. Yes, Europe is losing its culture and identity. These foreigners will never be a true Frenchman, Brit, or Scandinavian. They need to accept that and head back home.

    Would the west tolerate destruction of a non-white culture? No, the Politically Correct among us would think that as abhorrent. However, they have no qualms watching European cultures disintegrate. Does anyone go to Italy to eat Chinese food or visit an African or foreign community within that country? Nope. Europe is lost. Send them all back home.
