Epinay-Sur-Seine - Video
This is a first attempt to embed a video into the blog. Whether you know French or not, videos of everyday life are interesting to view. This one deals with the reactions of residents of Epinay-sur-Seine after Friday night's planned attack on the police of the "BAC" (Crime Brigade), discussed in greater detail in my recent post on shari'a law in France. The 4-minute video is actually in two parts, both of which relate the same event, so there is some repetition.
The major theme is that the police were set up. The words "traquenard" and "guet-apens" mean trap or ambush. At the end, the woman speaking stresses the rise in crime, and the male narrator says this is the third such attack in the Parisian suburb in a month. You will also see the type of rocks that are thrown at the police - large ones, that could kill. The wounded officer was released from the Simone Veil Hospital earlier this week.
