“We want the government to take stricter measures to protect us,” French police call on French politicians
In response to the attack of about forty armed people on the police station in the Paris suburb of Champigny-sur-Marne, a hundred French police officers staged a protest in front of the attacked police station on Monday.
The Champigny police station, about fifteen kilometers from the center of Paris, has become a target of a siege for the third time in the past two years. This time the attack ended with knocked out windows and damaged police vehicles. No one has been arrested.
“We are here to say we have had enough. We want the government to take stricter measures to protect us,” said Bruno Angelo, a representative of one of the police trade unions, in an interview with the AFP news agency.
Police officers demonstrated with banners reading, “Our security has a price,” and depicting police officers as targets in the heavily-migrant neighborhood of Champigny-sur-Marne, according to Czech TV 24.
