French cops shot at by Muslim rioters

OK, now up until now I thought this problem might be solved by strong Police intervention. But now...
But in fresh violence late on Sunday, rioters shot and injured 10 policemen, two of them seriously, when they fired at security forces confronting 200 stone-throwers, police said.
What happens once the threshold of killing cops is passed?

UPDATE: The BBC and News24 say its more like 30 cops wounded.

UPDATE2: From the later articles it's obvious real guns weren't used, so I've altered the title slightly.

UPDATE3: Some other articles refer to shotgun pellets.

Using the army? Against who? Their own five million muslims?

Well its not the entire Muslim population, but if they don't stand up to the thugs soon I can guess which side those stuck inside the slums will be forced to support - for their own good health.

AL, they talk about 'buckshot' but these journos wouldn't know the difference between buckshot, birdshot and bb.

The point is, to confront these youth or stop the violence they would have to cordon of a lot of suburubs, full of muslims. I don't see that happening.

They will cave in. Not sure if that will help at this stage though.
