France will deploy extra police and keep vandalism statistics under wraps on New Year's Eve to fight what authorities say has become an annual "sweepstakes" of disaffected youths competing to see who can burn the most cars.
Youths in depressed suburbs of French cities have been torching hundreds of vehicles on New Year's Eve and Bastille Day since the early 1990s. Police say the annual rite has turned competitive, with youths tracking the news in the first days of the new year to see which neighborhood did the most damage.

Those darned radical Jooooooos.
And backed by Unions.
Islamists have one goal, total domination into the pedophilic death cult of Sha’ria Law and oppression of non-Muslims, women and homosexuals.
France’s secular progressivism is an ideal place (and the US, too, in the future) for Muslims to eventually turn Notre Dame into a mosque and replace the abortion-happy wine drinkers into Dhimmi status.
The Left rejoices over Muslim expansion and screams over Nativity scenes or crosses on war memorials.
I think every FReeper should support Le Pen as she at least tries to curtail the Islamification of France.
Looks like the weak, soft Frogs will have baked brie this New Years!
Not one mention of Muslims or even Algerian immigrants in the entire article.
The camel Mohammed will never turn into a frog, despite the frogs’ (late) efforts.
Instead of “buying” fireworks and celebrating? these scum will burn and steal other peoples property. A Pox on all the politicians who have ruined countries by allowing this filth into their countries.
No government has the nerve. Arsonists and looters should be shot. Repeat as necessary.
The Amish are at it again!
To bad the locals don’t own guns anymore. Wow, 1 year I would like to see a headline that reads,” 20 youths were shot last night as owners protected their property” I do not think that car torching would happen next year!
The “celebration of cultural diversity” can be a real b*tch. Nasty too!
I’d burn cars too if the local cars were Renaults, Peugeots or Citroens. French cars are terrible.
I’m going to guess that there are individuals in France who are buying up beaters, overinsuring them and then strategically parking them during New Year’s in order to turn a profit - perhaps sharing it with some of the “youths” in order to get the benefit of volume.
Geez, if this happened here, Nancy Pelosi would call it stimulus (for Gov’t Motors & the unions).
On the other hand, have you ever driven a Peugeot or a Citroen? Torching them might have been a public service.
Awwwww, isnt that cute! Getting to be a real tradition for the "youths."
The nut cases should be thankful they are not here in Texas, what with the Castle Laws and all that.
They would see some "fireworks" fer real.
Americans are a bit more organized. We made it into a program/stimulus, and called it “Clash for Clunkers”.
Expect a visit from C.A.I.R. real soon.
And don’t shoot til ya see the whites of their eyes.
In Detroit they only fire live ammo into the air.......think of all the fun they’re missing out on
I can't believe it, there was just a commercial on tv asking Detroiters to "Ring in the New Year with a Bell, not with a BANG!" LOL!
