Shattered glass

Anyone who has lived in France during the last twenty years or so should have some story to tell about their encounter with this growing number of disaffected and socio-pathic young adults of mostly North African birth or parentage. I’m confident to say that those of who have had some experience with these troubled people are not the least bit surprised about what is now happening in France.
As soon as the cops had taken control of the situation, one of my friends who helped accost the perpetrators admitted to me that his real dream in life would be to become a member of the riot police. His hometown an hour away had been adversely affected by immigrants, and he was filled with a sense of revenge. Still he was bourgeois enough not to taunt or provoke any fights, but violently imposing order was what he would rather do than attend the university.

Thank you for linking to my post. I'm surprised my post has generated that much interest since I assume that most sensible Frenchmen and tourists may have had unpleasant altercations with young French muslims.

I encourage you to read my latest post where I try to exculpate Le Corbusier from the blame he gets for having envisioned these socialist suburban slums in France and throughout the world.
