But sometimes when you have an angry lynch mob outside, giving them a token apeasement such as this may calm them down and make them go home as they feel that for once they are being listened to. It's ultra short termist thinking on the part of those in power, but so is basically everything they do.
In this concrete case it seems to me that the ban didn't work. One could read the plotline as: the bathers chose a secluded beach as the the place where they chose to break the law, and were attacked by local Corsicans. Later, Corsicans surrounded apartments where Muslims live.

I don't see anyone above as "in the right".

Speeding is illegal here, if Dodgyken zips past your farmhouse in his 1986 Sinclair C5, do you harpoon his tires, or call the police? Do you surround the outlet where he charges his C5?

The reasonable response is to call the police, or just stand and laugh.
