Kingersheim (68th Department): “Youths” from the projects pretended to be Yellow Vests and attacked the police

by Koba, November 17, 2018

Police officers from the Wittenheim police station, who were ensuring security around the Château d’Eau in Kingersheim and who were especially managing traffic on the RD430, blocked by the protesters, were attacked in the early evening (around 7:30 pm) by a group of about twenty Yellow Vests who were clearly hostile.

Even though most of them were wearing the rallying sign [yellow vests], the majority were also wearing balaclavas and holding iron bars.

The police quickly realized, after a rock or two flew in their direction, that they weren’t dealing with the protesters of November 17, but with young thugs who arrived from the neighborhood of Bourtzwiller, situated a couple of hundreds meters away from there, as the crow flies.

[…]

Two youths, aged 15 and 22 years, were arrested by the members of the Canine Brigade [of law enforcement] and of the BAC [anti-criminality brigade], and they are being temporarily detained.

  1. Yes. It’s time to stop the hypocrites from creating weapons of mass distrAction by claiming that they want democracies around the world: Mali, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, …

    It’s time to pinpoint the traitors and making them pay for the destruction of every single European country in the name of one virtue that does not exist: helping muslims escape oppression while they themselves oppress the aboriginal freedom fighters.

    It’s time to straighten the connotation of words ( invaders does not equal refugees, multiculti does not equal the destruction of every other culture save islam) and twisting every meaning to islamize the west and destroy Judeo-Christian noble values.

    It’s time to that declare that 400 rockets were hurled at Israeli civilians but the west’s eunuch jelly fish cowards cannot bring themselves to mention that for fear a ten year old muslim will get angry and they cannot restrain him.

    This is the beginning of reason after insanity: this romance with islam of the last 60 years is the continuation of the insanity of the habitual madness of Europe even before 1914, and peaked in 1939.

  2. I cannot understand why the French are willing to protest about such matters as tax increases but are silent about the muslim invasion of their country.

  3. Once the Police start to come over, the country and its (real) people have a shot at retaining their freedom and some form of democracy.
    The problem has always been fighting one’s way THROUGH the police in order to confront the enemy.
    Early days, but this is a good sign–still–expect the DeepState to come down HARD!
    Anyway…..
    Popcorn?
    Beer??
