French PM: ‘Jailed radicals must be in solitary confinement’

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls argued on Monday that there must be a “general measure” to place imprisoned radical Islamists in solitary confinement to avoid the spread of extremist views within the walls of French prisons.

“We separate these inmates from the rest,” Valls told French TV channel BFMTV on Monday.

“It must become a general measure (but) it must be done with discernment and intelligence.”

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has echoed these sentiments in the wake of the worst terrorist attack on French soil in over half a century…

Good idea. A little late. Even better: No more Muslim immigrants.

    And the walls, floors & ceilings of their cells should be plastered with Mohammed cartoons.

      Three squares a day. Bacon Burgers only. No fries with that.

  • Can this solitary confinement be on Baffin Island in the middle of January, chained to a rock in the vicinity of hungry polar bears?

    aaahem! What about the prison clerics?…?

    they should be beheaded by guillotine. They should be put to death.

    Let’s see that march MEAN SOMETHING! HALT! ALL Muslim immigration
    (it is impossible to tell which Muslims will adapt and which will not)

    All those people in the march….!!!!….

    Do you really think a huge protest march will stop the terror???!!!
    Think again!
    Every single one of you marchers should send your e-mails to President Holland and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! NO MORE MUSLIMS!

    I hate grieving and then getting on with life until the next terrorist murder and another march HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE YOU PEOPLE TO REALIZE!!!! THEY MEAN BUSINESS! They laugh at your little marches while they plot the next attack. “Oh great let’s see how big we can get the next march”

    Your tactic of trying to settle peacefully is FAILING miserably. If you believe in peaceful settlements of arguments but your opponent believes in war… don’t be so cocky peacenics…you WILL lose

    Far better yet, take no prisoners.

  • As I pointed out before, Valls does intend to try and do something serious about Islamic terror.

  • David Murrell

    Yes, but the Globe and Mail — our leader in everything that is politically correct — has come out against solitary confinement for anybody:

    So not only does the Globe oppose publishing Hebdo cartoons — opposing offending Muslim terrorists — it would disallow solitary confinement for Muslim terrorists. That might hurt terrorists’ feelings, you know.

    I recommend a 2′ x 2′ x 7′ long pine cell, safely secured under 8 feet of compacted soil.

    The problem is in France it’s something like 60-70% of the prison population are muslim, so to make that work you would need to have enough solitary confinement to hold say 70% of the prisoners in the prison. They did try a all solitary prison once in the US and my understanding was it caused all sorts of psychological issues for the inmates, many where more unstable when they left than when they entered.

      Muslims are unstable when they enter, so would they became that much more unstable? In addition to solitary confinement, I advocate several hours of forced listening to Justin Bieber, and think prisoners should be forced to eat a bacon and pork diet with water at all meals. Finally, no Islam in jails. You wanna practice your satanic cult? If so, do it as a free person outside a jail.

        The only info I can find on a solitary only facility was out of the US and why they abandoned the project. I’m just saying that people placed in it became more violent. Would you want to make a typical jihadi more violent?

        I’m thinking a pine box to hold the jihadi’s remains would be a cheaper and better for society option than holding them in solitary for 20 years.

        Really the easiest solution is all extremists jihadis should end up like Caciocavallo.
