The caretaker in the office - civilian no? Plus a visitor to the office?

I'd imagine they think anyone who works for / in the same building as the mag where all infidels and valid targets, just seems odd that they class one person as a civilian and not others

Did you expect them not to be odd? Maybe they are trying to score brownie points by showing how compassionate they can be?

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

I'd be curious to know how how the family and friends of the police officers that were killed truly feel about Charlie Hebdo now.

Last night, I was watching BBC World News, and a British journalist was interviewing a female French politician of some sort. The journalist raised the question of whether or not Charlie Hebdo should have been a bit more cautious about whom their magazine was offending. It was obvious that the French woman was, herself, offended by the question. She responded by saying that the French have their type of humor and that the British have theirs. She then said that the French respect British humor (implying that the British should, in turn, respect theirs). I just found it a bit interesting...

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

Quote:
Absolutely, but now is not the time to discuss. French 'Beur' (arabs) from ex-colonies from North Africa, often 2nd, 3rd generations, born in France- are too often treated like 3rd class citizens in France- unable to access good education, apprenticeships, jobs, accommodation apart from high-rise in limited areas, loans, etc, and discriminated in so many other ways too. And young beurs constantly harrassed by the police.

Very different to the great tolerance shown in the UK.

I don't think you can blame the French for that. To the French, what identifies the French is language, not religion, community nor ethnicity. Unlike the US, where you are more likely to be identified by the community you come from. So for those who have trouble integrating into French society, I would question whether it was due to the French, or due to some other attitude of how so different they are from the other French. Expecting special treatment, perhaps.

Yes cops should only deal with parking fines from now on. Really?

At least the French politician was not offended enough to shoot the BBC reporter for asking the offensive question.

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

I truly hope the hostages in the kosher market are safe, and utmost effort given towards their safety. How is it that innocent jews are somehow involved in this? What is more racist and bigotted than targetting jews? And these are those who have grievance of being discriminated against? WTF? Whoever subscribes to that freakin hipocrisy needs their brain checked.

AFP is reporting that the Kouachi brothers' hostage has been freed and is safe following a police assault on the warehouse in Dammartin.

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

Several hostages have been freed at the supermarket site. No word yet on the gunman.

And the two scumbags are dead.

Pity.

Meanwhile, entering the supermarket.

Police have been seen storming the supermarket, with one woman seen leaving, AP reports. Women and children are believed to be among the hostages held inside the building.
