Protesters in Paris Slam French Police Brutality

Protesters in Paris Slam French Police Brutality

Alwaght- Protestors have marched across the French capital Paris to condemn police brutality after the recent baton-rape of a young man, torture and deaths in police custody.

The protests turned violent after French police fired tear gas at hooded demonstrators in Paris on Sunday as thousands marched against unending police cruelty.

The French Human Rights League, which led Sunday’s protest that also brought together victims families’ said in a statement that the rally was to express “anger in the face of repeated police violence” and warn against “a perverted notion of public security and the protection of citizens.”

The Paris protesters chanted "no justice, no peace", "police everywhere, justice nowhere" or "emergency, emergency, police are killing with impunity".

Police in riot gear used tear gas against some of the masked protesters who hurled back the canisters. Many in the crowd -- who wore hoods, face masks, and sunglasses -- carried anarchist flags. Demonstrators also held a giant banner reading "Justice and dignity, end police impunity," which included drawn images of 13 people presented as victims of police brutality.

French police are regularly accused of using excessive force in poorer neighborhoods, particularly against Muslim, black and minority ethnic suspects.

The February French police baton-rape of a man identified only as a 22-year-old named Theo, once again brought to the fore policing methods in France and triggered riots in the gritty suburbs surrounding Paris. The French citizen of African origin sustained severe anal and rectal injuries, as well as wounds to his head and face, during a stop-and-search operation in the Seine-Saint-Denis region northeast of Paris.

In October 2005, riots broke out across France when two teenagers in Clichy-sous-Bois, another Parisian suburb, were electrocuted while hiding in an electrical shed to escape police pursuit. During the unprecedented riots, thousands of cars and hundreds of buildings were burned, and some 6,000 were arrested. The French government had to declare a state of emergency to contain the situation.
