This does not contain practical advice, so it is not a self-defense tip but a statement of fact and a heads-up.
French police do a great job recruiting for ISIS. They raped an arrestee (in a similar manner to NYPD officers’ rape of Abner Luima and who knows how many others). ISIS, al-Qaeda, or whatever terrorists are sure to use this police behavior as a recruiting tool. And no, this police behavior is not a fluke–from forcing Muslim women to undress publicly it is not a far road to a gang rape of a handcuffed man.
For a while now, France has been doing a good job of recruiting for ISIS and bringing more terrorism to the European Union. Condoning police brutality is just one part of the French effectiveness in this endeavor. The foundation of this French recruiting effort is the French system of job security, which practically keeps minorities from getting jobs. To see how learn about France’s 3,280-page socialist labor code, which makes it near impossible to lay off or fire workers, so ethnic French employers prefer to employ ethnic French they have connections with rather than immigrants. This is coupled with red tape keeping the immigrants from starting legit businesses. Minorities can’t get jobs or start businesses in France, so they stay on welfare. This keeps them alive but poor, without a way to a better life and an outlet for their entrepreneurial energy–other than crime–which is just fine with ISIS and similar groups. (Of course, if France had no socialist welfare, there would be no problem; the immigrants would not stay in France if they had no jobs.)
But back to the current police performance. . . . I expect something like this:
Terror organizations, if they think straight, will arrange punitive actions against the police, actions designed to specifically address the rape. In response, police officers will unleash their full fury against all Muslim-looking minorities, thus driving more of them to sympathize with ISIS. Then, the police, if they think straight, will fabricate incidents of Muslims raping ethnic Frenchmen–this to reduce support for current protests against police rape, to increase support for police brutality, and to trigger revenge attacks on Muslims by Frenchmen, thus driving more Muslims to ISIS. Smooth. . . . The spiral will continue, and both ISIS and the police will gain: ISIS more recruits, the police more power and more impunity.
“Police in France have claimed that an officer anally raped a 22-year-old black man with a truncheon by mistake. In an initial investigation, they found ‘insufficient evidence’ to support the man’s claim that he was deliberately sodomized. A lawyer for one of the officer’s suggested his expandable baton slipped into the man’s anus by accident.”
