I don’t blame these cops for offing themselves.
What other option do they have?
Police unions in France have reacted with “great anger” to the news of two more suspected service suicides over the weekend in the country.
“It’s a massacre,” the UNSA-Police union’s Thomas Toussaint told French media. He noted that it took until August last year for the number of suspected or proved officer suicides, currently 25, to reach 2019’s level.
A female officer who worked for a suburban Paris station was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Le Parisien. Local media in the town of Ales also reported the discovery of the body of a male officer who had disappeared one week previously.
A senate report released last summer looked at the problems facing law enforcement personnel, including grueling schedules, exhaustion, and heightened tensions caused by recent civil unrest, as well as terrorist incidents, and labelled the issue a “true crisis.”
Macron is forcing these cops to be the bad guys in French society.
It would be better if they just all walked off the job in protest. But apparently they can’t afford to, due to what Macron is doing with austerity to stop the weather from changing.
