Crowd sets police car alight at Pro-Police rally in Paris

A rare rally of police officers against “anti-cop hatred” in France descended into violence Wednesday as counter-demonstrators forced two policemen out of a car and torched it.

Police were demonstrating across France against violence suffered at the hands of anti-government protesters in recent months.

France has been gripped by a wave of furious protests and strikes against reforms proposed by the deeply unpopular government of President Francois Hollande, many of which have erupted into violence.

    Is this bad?
    I think this is bad.

    • I’d say so.

      I believe it is called anarchy.

  • Police never appreciated the fact that conservatives are generally law-abiding, peaceful demonstrations, et cetera. We are generally “pro-Cop”. Police got into bed with the Left thinking they could mollify them but the result is the opposite — the more they mollify the militant Left the more the Left hates them and the more violent they become.

      Seems they don’t like the Just desserts being served up to them

      Qu’ils mangent de la brioche

      BTW the right hates them now too, Quisling bastards

      Yes. The French must be the basis for the whole “slippery slope” argument which unfortunately so often proves true. Look at what happened AFTER gay marriage was legalized!!!!! The LGBTQWERTY types are more pissed off than ever. Slippery slope.

    Apparently this is the same old Frenchie anarchy of the left. They don’t need jihadists to make trouble — they are quite capable all by themselves.

      Totalitarians are very multiculti.

    The lead up to the burning car is quite graphic:
