L’aide mutuelle

March 28, 2006
It wouldn’t take a genius to work out what this means.
I’ve been watching the French police at work on the streets of Paris, dealing with the protestors over there and I would like to offer my services.
You see, their running lines were shocking – not straight, no organisation, no leadership. They needed a sergeant to keep things under control.
The protestors – or “delinquents” as the French interior minister calls them – need a bit of sorting out. The tear gas and water cannon are OK, but you can’t beat a good shielding.
They don’t like it up ’em!

    Policing English style is well known the world over. We don’t mess about. Same with the military. So why then are all our public services so crap…?

    I don’t think that we have much to teach the CRS about robust crowd control. I saw them in action during a bit of a riot in Perpignan last year, and they appear to be a bit light on PR and fairly heavy on cracking heads.

    and of course France doesn’t have the IPCC sniffing around looking for opportunities to undermine the policing system.
