In other news...France continues to burn

Some high school French, and Creole picked up from my Haitian neighbors, lets me read this well enough to know its NOT GOOD. 313 cars burned, 258 arrested. How do you burn 300+ cars with 25,000 cops on the beat? One day, 300+ cars burned. Think about how the citizens of a major city in the USA would react to this happening every day. A "slow night" in Paris is 100 cars burned. 7x24x365 that shit would get old real quick here in the states.

Selon ce bilan, arrêté à 06H00, sur 25.000 policiers et gendarmes mobilisés, trois policiers ont été légèrement blessés, dont l'un à Paris, bousculé par une voiture sur les Champs-Elysées, où 400.000 personnes ont fêté l'entrée dans l'année 2007, et deux autres lors d'interpellations, selon la même source[...]

Wow, almost 20 years since High school French and I can still make out a few things myself, although not nearly as much as you got from it.

What ever will the French do?

Hello, NBC? There's obviously a CIVIL WAR raging in France.

Purple, I suspect the citizens of any US city, town, or village would respond with aimed gunfire. Fewer cars fires, fewer Islamic perps. Repeat as necessary.

I know my neighborhood's streets would be littered with islamo-corpses in the morning if they tried it here ;->
