mobilization of the police in front of the courthouse in support of their colleague indicted after the death of two men in Paris
Police are mobilizing this Monday noon in forty cities in France in support of the police officer indicted for intentional homicide after the death of two men during an intervention on April 24 on the Pont-Neuf in Paris. In Toulouse, there are about fifty in front of the courthouse.
At the call of several police unions, hundreds of police officers are mobilizing this Monday noon all over France in support of the police officer indicted in particular for “intentional homicide” after the death of two men during an intervention on 24 April on the Pont-Neuf in Paris.
In Toulouse, this afternoon, about fifty police officers are gathered in front of the Palace of Justice. In the colors of the blue flags of Alliance and Unsa Police, they will thus be competent and will support their Parisian colleague indicted for “intentional homicide”.
These agents come from several police stations in the region. Delegations from Gers, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne traveled to Toulouse to reinforce the Toulouse police.
In Paris, more than a hundred police officers are gathered in front of the Saint-Michel fountain, a few meters from the place of the facts and the old courthouse, under a banner “to be condemned or to be killed”.
The Alliance union is campaigning for the inclusion in law of a “presumption of self-defense” for police and gendarmes – one of the proposals of candidates from far-right parties in the 2022 presidential election.
Several police officers explain that they do not question the “indictment” of the police officer but find themselves “unbearable that a police officer is indicted for murder, when he acted in the course of his work, to protect himself and his colleagues”.
All gave their support to the 24-year-old peacekeeper who is indicted for “intentional homicide” after the death of the driver of a vehicle during a police check on April 24, as well as for “intentional violence by person holding public authority causing death without intention to kill” with regard to the front passenger who also died and for “willful violence aggravated by person holding public authority” with regard to the rear passenger who was injured, according to a judicial source from franceinfo.
