A short video in French

Come marvel at the diversity in this suburb of Amiens

“This area is notorious nationwide since the 90s, the northern suburbs of Amiens was the scene of urban violence. This area has problems that since more than 20 years. According to Gilles Demailly, Amiens-Nord has even become “a zone of lawlessness.” “This is an area where we can not order a pizza, where you can not bring a doctor. The violence is continuing, it is daily physical, but also institutional. And the side of the forces of order, this tension is sustained. “Working in the northern district of Amiens became very complicated. The police are not welcome in this neighborhood. And for police officers, in addition to being difficult, it became dangerous, “says Europe 1 Michaël Vandevelde, deputy secretary general of SNOP-SCSI police union.”

    chain gun to clear out the infestation.

    • The cops literally ran away.

        In fairness french cops don’t carry ammo.

        • Oh, that sounds smart.

          • Exile1981

            If you carry ammo people could get hurt.

          • But only bad people, so…

          • Exile1981

            Except that when they carried ammo more muslims got shot than non muslims which makes it islamophobic to carry ammo.

            Of course more muslims committed violent crimes but we are not supposed to talk about that.

          • But of course.

    Drove into Amiens from a town North to see the largest Catholic Cathedral in France. The neighborhood we drove threw, the public housing blocks were very obvious no go zones with men on every boulevard scanning every car and occupants driving by. step in front look you over whatever they wanted. The square by the church was full of tourists but just in a two block area. dirty, run down, creeped us out and we left for Vimy and Beaumont Hamel to the north.

    Good to see the French police keep their vehicle’s transmissions in good working order – in reverse, anyway!

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      French WW2 tanks…only ones on the battlefield with back-ups lights and 5-speed transmissions…one forward, four reverse…

  • A picture of the hordes of mindless thugs coming to your neighborhood soon.

    That’s about as feral as humans can get.

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      ..and every one of them wipes its ass with its bare paw…

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    …the jacking sound of the pump shotgun and blast sounded over-dubbed…

    Nothing new here, the French have a long storied history of running away. Most recently there was the footage from the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in which the two terrorists ran out in the streets and you see the police vehicle back up in top speed and run away.
