More suicidal dhimmitude in France, but not all that surprising considering that French authorities built a monument to these electrocuted boys.
As long as more energy is spent persecuting those who are trying to protect France from the jihadists, rather than prosecuting jihadists, France will be in dire straits. Note how specious the arguments below are. Technicians are supposed to go into the power station to protect two people who are certainly hostile and possibly armed? These policemen are being thrown to the wolves to appease Muslims in France.

PARIS (AP) — A judge in the Paris suburb of Bobigny has charged two police officers in connection with the 2005 electrocutions of two teens whose deaths sparked three weeks of rioting in France, officials said Thursday.
The two officers were charged Wednesday for ”non-assistance to people in danger,” which carries up to five years in prison and a maximum $97,400 fine, judicial officials said on condition of anonymity in line with policy.
The decision came more than 15 months after Zyed Benna, 17, and Bouna Traore, 15, were killed as they hid from police in a power substation in the Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois.
The Oct. 27, 2005, electrocutions triggered riots that raged through housing projects in troubled neighborhoods with large Arab and black populations. France’s suburbs remain plagued by poverty, discrimination, tensions between youth and police and a sense of alienation from French society.
An internal police review of the electrocutions, released in December, faulted police officers for their handling of the incident. The report confirmed the officers had been chasing the teens before they were killed, which the Interior Ministry and police had initially denied.
The report said officers should immediately have notified French energy company EDF that the youths were hiding in the power station.
It also said that if officers had notified EDF, technicians could have intervened 15 minutes before the accident. Still, the report said such steps would not necessarily have prevented the electrocutions.
