Some random comments on reddit about French police during their search for the gunman who attacked the offices of a satirical newspaper [2000x1366]
- During situations like this it's common sense to send militarized policemen to deal with the situation. But such equipment shouldn't be used in organized protests (not talking about Ferguson), it's like treating people as if they were the enemy.
- police force were applaused today during a huge people meeting, I never saw that before https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=779181625500471&pnref=story
- I've seen it happen before in the states. Most recent time that I can remember was after the Boston Bombers had been caught, crowds were chanting for the police. http://youtu.be/SKSuLQxftXA?t=17s
- I wouldn't entirely agree. The Montgomery County Shooting had a similar armed response to a shooter and people didn't really cry out "police state".
- You'd think they would be able to make up their mind about what their standard-issue carbine was. Unless French SWAT are given a lot more freedom with their kit than American SWAT are.
- Those guys seems to be from the RAID, they're a very elite unit that barely numbers 200, they probably get to choose their weaponry.
- They have a lot of freedom, look at the gear from the RAID , GIGN (in French, sorry) or GIPN . There are only a few units in France, the top 1% of our policemen so they probably get to choose their tools 🙂 Read more comments
