World News: Police Violence Rises in France Begging the Question Order or Dialogue

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The increase in police violence raises questions about the original missions of law enforcement officials supposed to protect populations and ensure republican order. But the latter would not have become an excuse for all the drifts therefore legitimized. Explanations.

From slippage to burrs, for several weeks now the National Police has been on the grill. The repeated police violence, denounced in turn by the Minister of the Interior and the President of the Republic, does not seem to be attenuated and would even tend to arouse opinion against the representatives of the police.

Once the observation has been made, we should try to determine the origins of this violence. The terrorist risk which has long weighed, and still weighs in a certain way on the country, has more or less legitimized the muscular methods of a police then adorned with all the virtues, in particular that of offering a bulwark to the spread of the terrorist scourge.

Police Order and State

But in the interval between the current situation and that which prevailed five years ago, an unprecedented presidential election by its result came to change the situation. The new President of the Republic, in pleasant terms, has in fact proved to be a partisan if not declared at least clearly confessed to the order.

And to advance the sacrosanct notion in a democracy such as ours of the republican order, that would justify all interventions on the grounds that it fights for the public good. Certainly. But in front of the number of wounded or mutilated, the question is posed with as much legitimacy as the defense of the republican order: Is such violence necessary?

Obviously not. The excesses of the National Police, admittedly with exhausted staff, faced with increasing difficulties in the exercise of their respective functions, are no longer tolerable to this day because to accept them as such would amount to falling into a police state where the simple fact of demonstrating one's dissatisfaction would be synonymous with a potential slip.

Violence and Missions

Also, it is not useless, in the face of changes undergone by society, in front of new forms of expression (social networks capable of initiating public gatherings without delay or little), the emergence of a new form of violence linked to the incomprehension of the policies carried out since the election of Emmanuel Macron, to question the fundamental missions of the Police.

France, which wants to be a modern democracy, can no longer today entrust its internal security to a police force whose methods of maintaining order are limited to awaiting instructions before going on to beating up in order and arguing for defense. of public and republican order. But to imagine before any event, at risk or not, a dialogue between law enforcement and organizers in order to establish potential abuses is not utopian.

Considering that not all demonstrators are potential terrorists or sleeping thugs does not offend the Police, whose role, let us remember, is to protect the population and not to terrorize them by the threat of violence which has become intolerable .
