since this area had a high immigrant population, is it possible that ethnic tensions between immigrants and the police may have contributed to the riots?

Doubt it. Just another reason for Frenchmen to get their panties in a wad. Happens pretty often over there.

I simply asked because in the U.S we have riots all the time because of racial tensions between people and police...

Yeah, we do. Its actually pretty amazing that France hasn't had near as many, with their country far more diverse with ethnicities than most American locations.

Hopefully it will end soon. I imagine it will. They'll eventually look around, after they've flipped a few cars and pissed on streets, and ask, 'what next?' Then, no one answers and the momentum is lost.  bigthumbsup

Sure we do have them, but when did we have the last racially motivated riot? Been awhile.

The item makes it sound like the second revolution - it wasn't, it was just some miss-spent yoofs chucking rocks at the police, and setting some cars on fire, in a very crappy outer suburb of Paris. I didn't follow it much on the news, apparently 2 teenagers got themselves electrocuted hiding in an electrical substation (hellooo !) after running away from a police ID check. All their buddies got annoyed about this and started a riot. All very pointless.

Despite the high respect for personal and human rights in France, they created these horrible urban ring cities/towns to put the 'immigrants', mainly North Africans and Islamic, there and out of Paris itself. They have high rates of unemployment or chronic underemployment. They have high crime rates. Much of the housing seems to be clearly doomed to failure as much is high-rise public slums, not designed to be occupant friendly. There has been long running hostility and prejudice against the poor and working class Muslims in France. No wonder unrest has developed.

Holy unrelated! Wouldn't want those big bad US corporations employing people or making a profit. Maybe we should just outsource a little more?

There are many communities in the US with racial tensions with the police, but they are remarkably well controlled if you really think about it (as hard as this will be for you B744F)

All in all, a stupid riot over two stupid kids.

Unrelated? Protections to the workforce allows more people to be employed at higher rates and keeps prices more under control. Making a profit shouldn't come before the welfare of the population, even though you and the rest would fight that to your deaths. Good idea, outsource, reincorporate in tax free havens, its the American dream!

If you call remarkably well controlled just throwing them all in jail, then sure. If you want to take a stroll down these places at night I will happily visit you in the hospital after, so you can tell me how well controlled they are. Then you can look at their crime and unemployment rates, but that would also take thinking which you claim I don't, yet common sense always goes against you

Perhaps you should compare the unemployment rate in the US with that of France? Outsouring and all these stupid trade agreements are killing the Us economy. Soon there will be no middle class, and I find that offensive. The question is do any leaders have the balls to step up and do anything about it? Nope, becuase they are all bought and sold already.

Whole lotta chirpin' goin' on.....

Used to be that the French rioted each spring...right around final exams time. Masses of students.

It got to the point that it is commonplace to see the national police dressed and ready to put down a riot with water cannon and automatic weapons anytime there is a demonstration of any kind. I wonder what would happen here if we had a paramilitary police force permanently mobilized in the major cities always putting on a show of force?

Here we seem to have a riot every 5 or 10 years, but we also have far more people and territory than any one single European nation.


One more thing......it's not all about violent police car burning ....tell me how many civil disruptions there are in France every year that interrupt peoples lives..... how many are here that paralyze the nation.
