Fatal police shooting sparks riot in France

ER Editor: We were driving home last night in an adjacent region to Nanterre, where this shooting took place earlier in the day, and had a side-road blocked off to us by 3 dark-clad individuals pulling dumpsters into the road and setting fire to them. Meanwhile, at the neighbouring intersection, many people were gathered to watch what was going on. Not a great picture of humanity. And neither is the video below.

French police outdo themselves once again.

This tweet appears to show what happened when the young driver, #Nael, was stopped. The policeman is clearly armed and shoots directly at the driver once the driver begins to move forward. One shot is distinctly heard. The car then crashes off the road some way ahead.

Le Monde picked up the story (browsers will translate) — A minor killed by a police officer in Nanterre, the official placed in police custody. Of note:

A 17-year-old motorist was killed Tuesday morning June 27 in Nanterre, in the Hauts-de-Seine, by a police officer who used his weapon. According to the first elements of the investigation, communicated from police sources to Agence France-Presse ( AFP ), the vehicle, which had been rented, had committed several traffic violations.

A police officer was in police custody for intentional homicide on Tuesday afternoon. ‘The operations for the detection of alcohol and the consumption of narcotic products were carried out and [ revealed ] negative’, specified the prosecution in a press release.

A video broadcast on social networks and authenticated by The world shows the stopped vehicle, two police officers standing on their side at the front window, one of whom is holding the driver. When the car starts to restart, one of the two police officers opens fire, touching the man in the chest. Another video shows the damaged car a few meters further, surrounded by emergency.

Translation: 17-year-old #Naël was shot dead by a police officer in Nanterre this morning after refusing to comply. The police version, relayed by certain media, was called into question after a video was broadcast. The shooter is in custody. Tensions are ongoing in #Nanterre.

Translation: Naël’s murder is not inexplicable; it is the result of years of freedom-destroying laws and police impunity organised from above. Macron is guilty.

Translation: Rioting spread to several towns in Hauts-de-Seine last night following Naël’s death. Tensions were reported in Nanterre, Suresnes, Gennevilliers, Colombes, Asnières-sur-Seine, Villeneuve la Garenne, etc.

A video filmed by a witness shows that two officers had stopped a yellow Mercedes AMG. While one officer was standing outside the window and giving orders to the driver, his colleague stood next to him and was pointing a handgun at the driver.

The car suddenly moved forward, prompting the officer to fire a single shot. The Mercedes crashed into a pole and the driver died, despite efforts to resuscitate him.

The prosecutor’s office said the driver was known for having previously refused to comply with a police order during a traffic stop.

Hours after the incident, around 50 people held a protest outside Nanterre police station, BFM TV reported. In other parts of the neighborhood, rioters smashed bus stops, set garbage containers on fire, and torched several vehicles.

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said an investigation had been launched into the shooting. A separate investigation has been launched on suspicion of attempting to cause harm to a police officer.
