4. Comment

The Truth about the French Police

The recent violent events in Trappes, after the identity checking of a woman wearing the full-veil, had an uneven media coverage. Most of the time, the media spread the version of the Police Union and Manuel Valls. The Ministry of Interior declared that he was totally backing the policemen up and that he had no doubt about Trappes’ policemen integrity and professionalism.
