Paris unrest: Banlieue youths see French state as the enemy

In the Paris suburbs, youth sits idle. Young men chat and smoke. Some deal drugs. Most days are spent like this.

But today the talk is still about the alleged sexual assault on one of their friends, 22-year-old Theo, a young black man, who was brutalised by police.

A truncheon, they say, rammed into his backside, leaving him hospitalised for two weeks.

    One police truncheon rammed up one backside is a tragedy.
    100k police truncheons rammed up 100k backsides is a statistic.
    These “youths” belong in detention and deportation camps being taught a trade and a modicum of manners before they get the idea a full blown civil war is the answer..
