Here’s something that always catches my eye; “In Neuilly-Plaisance, a police car was also burnt. The city police headquarters was besieged by a hundred individuals. The police union Alliance declared: “Unfortunately it is not unusual in this department.”
Imagine a police station being laid siege to in Canada. Doesn’t happen, well not yet, but if it did it would be front page news.
In France as the police themselves admit, it’s “not unusual” and barely merits a sentence.
