France - Riots: Mayor declares curfew
Agence France-Presse | November 7, 2005

Posted on 11/07/2005 8:38:48 AM PST by HAL9000

Paris - The mayor of a tough Paris suburb near the epicentre of the urban violence raging across France declared an "exceptional curfew" on his municipality starting on Monday night.

The curfew, decided by conservative mayor Eric Raoult of the northeast suburb of Raincy, was the first to be imposed in France since rioting broke out in the neighbouring suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois on October 27.

It only took him 12 days. Is there a pool on when the surrender is?

If it is near the epicenter then this is about 12 days late. Nice to see they are right on top of things.

What is needed here is about a dozen UN resolutions. That would shut these protests right down, right? RIGHT?

Oh, and I want to see scores of Amnesty International monitors in there making sure the police don't get out of hand with the rioters. After all, they have civil rights.

:)

But when will they issue the shoot to kill order?

I think you have combined Governor Blanco and Mayor Nagin into one supra-incompetent, fraudelent, lackluster politician.

France deserves nothing less. Good work.

This mayor is a member of the President's political party, and is the head of a town called Raincy.

That's right. From now on, all non-Muslims will be required to be indoors after sundown and observe fasting during Ramadan.

Amazing isn't it. I'd imagine that if any US city went up in smoke in this day and age, that we'd have a curfew the next night!

If this doesn't work, plan B is to tell them they're all grounded.

Curfew As Riots Claim First Life

The last few days I'm seeing that the politicians involved are now being tagged as 'conservative'. It's the first step in this becoming Bush's fault. They are also pinning this on the most conservative (relative term) member of the government. It would be funny if it didn't piss me off so much.

It took work, but the frog mayor is making Nagin look good.

Remember how the media was so quick to criticize Bush's "delay" to fixing the "riots" after Katrina?

....the riots that never existed?

I'm sure those same standards will be applied here.

Heh.

You're being paranoid. Chirac isn't conservative by US (or UK) standards, but his party is routinely considered the conservative party in France, and is referred to that way in the French press.

Since Sarkozy and this mayor are the only ones to promote anything >remotely< effective, I don't see why you should mind them being called conservative.

"It only took him 12 days. Is there a pool on when the surrender is?"

In looking at the odds, based on common knowledge and historical reference, I have it as 65-1 that France surrenders in some way before Thanksgiving.

At this time, the exact nature of the surrender is not known.

Ironic that "curfew" has its origin in a French expression that means "covering of the fire." I bet . . .
