"Barely 20 years old, the dealers take in so much money, up to 2000 euros per day, that they couldn't care less about the laws of the Republic," observes Barbara Laval, regional official of Synergie officiers [police trade union] for the Bouches-du-Rhône region. "The aggressiveness towards us is now on a par with their aggressiveness between each other. Recently, we had to mobilise 16 agents from the PJ [Judicial Police] and reinforcements from the BAC [Anti-criminal brigade] to look for a single suspect in a housing estate. The balance of power is inverted."

And if the police go down into all the estates, even the most difficult, the atmosphere is even rougher: "For one year now, especially in the northern districts, the sense of impunity the armed gangs have is such that every intervention in a sensitive zone takes place while stones are being thrown at us and patrols are systematically attacked," deplores one non-commissioned officer involved in public safety.

I have just read a book written by Captain James Riley in 1817. The behaviour is unchanged since then. Take the time to look it up and spread the word to your lawmakers
