French Woes Continue

Continued from previous post.

Fourth night of riots in Paris.
Youths hurled rocks and set fire to cars in the northeastern Clichy-sous-Bois suburb of the French capital, where many immigrants and poor families live in high-rise housing estates notorious for youth violence.
Let me remind you that the L.A. riots lasted three days, in which the National Guard was called out to evenually quell. What's the French reaction?
Mr Sarkozy has promised to send special police units into difficult suburbs around France to stamp out violence.

Residents will be given "the security they have a right to", he said while speaking to senior police officers in Clichy.

Notice how in a land devoid of gun rights, security is something that needs to be granted by the state.

However, just like in the U.S., French politicians also use tragedy to their advantage:
Laurent Fabius, a former Socialist prime minister and also a potential presidential candidate in 2007, said the Clichy violence marked a failure for Sarkozy and mocked his frequent visits to such areas.

"We need to act at the same time on prevention, repression, education, housing, jobs ... and not play the cowboy."
That's right, appeasement always works...well, it works when your trying to buy votes, and whose to say these immigrants aren't entitled to the same handouts that everyone else in the country recieves? After all, aren't kids who are handed everything better behaved?

I think France needs to refrain from rewarding criminal behavior.
