The French government has vowed to restore order after rioting in the eastern city of Grenoble over a shooting by police.Wow! Pierre, Gaston and Rene get all hot under the collar, don't they?
Riots rocked the city's run-down suburb of Villeneuve on Friday night as people protested at the death of a suspected armed robber during a police chase.
Nobody was injured in the riots, said police, who arrested two men aged 18 and 20 for setting fire to vehicles and three more for attempted looting of shops, France's AFP news agency reports.Is there something missing, though? Something to maybe explain why hordes of young men in stripy jumpers with strings of onions round their necks are burning and looting?
The Beeb isn't saying, that's for sure...
'The Mail' on the Grenoble riots:
France was on riot alert yesterday after hundreds of Muslim youths went on the rampage in Grenoble.Ah...
A Grenoble police spokesman said: ‘There has been a very fierce reaction. As mourners gathered in a park to hear Muslim prayers for the dead man late on Friday night, trouble broke out. By Saturday morning tear gas was being used on the youths.The BBC. Explaining the news to morons who never read any further than the tip of their nose.
'At about 2.30am a handgun was used to fire shots at the police. A youth was arrested, which seemed to make matters worse. The trouble went on until morning.’
Why are we paying through our noses for it again..?
