The Guardian. Police Crackdown Not the Answer to Amiens Riots
What's the solution in France to gangs of immigrant thugs setting fire to their own communities, hauling drivers out of their cars and shooting at cops?
Not more police intervention, that's for sure -- according to the Guardian, of course.
The commenters are treating the column by Matthew Moran like an unprotected sports car in Amiens. One worthy post:
I am naturally liberal and I hate unfairness in society. But I despair at the destructive contempt of the few who make their neighbour's lives hell. We are lost in confused thinking about what to do when these people ignore the difference between right and wrong. If we do not restore effective deterrents soon they will cause chaos and turn these communities into hell. I can already hear the murmur of apologists excusing the thugs. Before you respond, just have a think about what you would do if it was your home they were burning, your family terrorised.
