Once again, a mob of migrants rioted in France. This time in the small town of Alençon. Why? Because the police arrested a 16-year-old drug dealer.
Alençon is a small town in Normandy with around 25,000 inhabitants. But as in so many parts of France, it has long since ceased to be possible to speak of an idyllic small town life there. Even if (at least including the surrounding area) only around seven percent of the population have a migration background.
However, this does not change the fact that especially among the young people among the migrants, they obviously like to band together and fight street battles against the police.
In response to the arrest of a 16-year-old drug dealer, about 20 young men roamed the streets wreaking havoc by throwing fireworks at emergency services. Several vehicles were also set on fire. A common tactic in migrant riots.
“We regret that night of urban violence in Perseigne, in Alençon, in which a dozen vehicles were set on fire,” said Françoise Tahéri, Prefect of the Orne district BFMTV.
Photos from the day after show the destroyed vehicles:
Apparently, the state has recently been distributing migrants across the area to allow them to “integrate” better.
A French Twitter user commented on this with the following words:
In Alencon, the state’s recent policy to distribute migrants across the country in order to “deghettoise” and (hopefully) better integrate them has failed! The cancer used to be circumscribed and operable, today it is generalized.
In May last year, migrants in Paris caused unrest for several nights. They attacked the police and set vehicles on fire to protest the death of a motorcyclist in an accident.
Some areas are so out of control that a senior government official said during the first Covid-19 lockdown that no restrictions should be imposed in areas with high levels of migrants due to the risk of rioting.
Riots in France’s notorious, high-crime banlieues are the order of the day. They are a clear sign that multiculturalism has failed. This is despite the fact that the media have repeatedly tried to portray the existence of no-go areas as a conspiracy theory.
In any case, this escalation is part of a long series of migrant riots that have repeatedly shaken the “Grande Nation” in recent years.
