Remember when the mainstream media assured us that there were no no-go zones? There is a whole lot more that they are lying to us about as well, that will become painfully obvious in the near future.
FRENCH police chiefs have been heavily criticised for sending officers into gang-ridden “no-go zones” after two officers were seriously injured in a petrol bomb attack this weekend.
The officials were on patrol on the Grande Borne, a notorious housing estate in Paris, at the time of the sickening attack.
Eyewitnesses said they were “attacked from all sides” by the cowardly mob, who threw Molotov cocktails at the officers – who were badly burned and rushed to intensive care units in hospital.
The incident, in which around 15 people attacked a patrol car in broad daylight on Saturday, further highlighted a national debate on security as France prepares for next year’s presidential election.
Now officers are calling for greater protecting when they enter so-called “no-go zones” plagued by tough gangs and violent warfare.
Nicolas Comte, a spokesman for France’s second-biggest police union Unite SGP Police, said: “We’re very angry. It is surreal that colleagues be injured on such a mission.”
Denis Jacob from the union Alternative police-CFDT said: “Of course there are no-go zones in France where the police cannot intervene and do their jobs in safety. And it’s the same for fire fighters or pretty much any representative of the state.
“The police can’t apply the law in these areas, they are attacked. If the police can’t do their work it’s because there are criminals and delinquents who don’t respect the law.
“It’s not just a problem with this government it’s a problem with all French governments over the last 20 years. Governments will never admit there are no-go zones because it’s a sign of a failed state.”…
