On New Years Eve, two French Police Officers, one male, and one female, were subjected to a cowardly mob attack by feral and delinquent youths who, once caught, the French Military should use for target practice.
The female Officer suffered multiple bruises, whilst her male colleague had his nose broken. The pathetic attackers were heard to shout “beat them, take their weapons” by a local witness.
No-one has yet been arrested for the vicious attacks on the Police Officers.
They probably haven’t been caught yet, because cowards such as those individuals who attacked the Officers, run off back to the rocks from under which they have crawled as soon as Police backup arrives, and the numbers are evened out.
When I heard about these attacks, it made me think about when I served in the armed forces. We would have to use paper targets for our marksmanship training.
But it would be much more realistic, if instead of using the flimsy paper targets, the military used the cowards who commit this sort of violent attack on our Police brothers and sisters.
French President Emmanuel Macron took to Twitter to denounce the “cowardly and criminal lynching of police officers doing their duty” and warned that the culprits would be “found and arrested”.
“I regret that incidents like yesterday can happen but overall people were able to enjoy New Year’s eve in a peaceful manner,” Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said Monday.
Some 140,000 security and emergency forces were deployed across France on New Year’s Eve.
The country has been on alert following a wave of jihadi attacks that have killed 241 since 2015.
