Skip to comments.'We risk our lives for €1.5k a month': French prisons on edge over radicalized inmates

Assaults by inmates linked to Islamic extremism prompted a second day of strikes by prison guards across France on Tuesday, casting a spotlight on the challenges of handling radicalized prisoners.
The attacks come as French officials test a range of preventive measures after a string of jihadist attacks over the past two years that have left more than 240 people dead.
Some of those responsible were involved in Islamist networks in jail. They include Cherif Kouachi, one of the gunmen who attacked satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, and his friend Amedy Coulibaly, who killed four at a Jewish supermarket two days later.
Dealing with radicalized prisoners and stopping them from converting fellow inmates has been a priority, but the results so far have been mixed. Deradicalization efforts were set up very quickly, and there are lots of gaps, said Esther Benbassa, a senator who recently led a commission on the issue.
In the latest prison attacks, a convict at the Mont-de-Marsan prison in southwest France attacked guards on Monday as he resisted a search when his gym bag set off a metal detector. Seven guards were hurt, including a woman with a fractured sternum and a man with a broken nose, Ludovic Motheron, a CGT union official at the prison, told AFP.

Time for the guillotine to make a return for the happy Muslims.
C’mon thats too fast. We know they like it slow. Watch their vids.
So did I for 25 years. Man up.
Guards lock every cell, every door, every gate....then go on strike for a couple months.
Nobody allowed across the picket line.
Inmates can tap into an officers retirement if judge rules in favor of the inmate in an altercation, believe it! could you imagine a deduction on your retirement check every month for the rest of your life to go to a savage that attacked you, you defend yourself and he wins. social justice in a liberal progressive utopia
Most people get smarter with age and experience .... the French not so much.
I was thinking something along the lines of one finger for the more minor offences, a testicle for the bigger offences, an eye for the really big ones.
There is another story on that site
That says they want the French people to not use the word “smartphone” because it is an English word.
They want them to use “Mobile”. ha ha
Last year the commission of language enrichment ruled against using English words such as “gamer”, “fake news” and “dark web”.

Sorry this was not thread related.
Good grief, a fractured sternum is a big deal. She must have been stomped on.
“Time for the guillotine to make a return”
Let the women run the guillotine and sew the bodies up in pigskins.
Musloids? Don’t jail them...
Put them in crowded cells and put viagra in their food.
Throw tarps over it and call in Orkin
Strikes are not exactly four leaf clovers in France, but you really, really play with fire when you understaff a prison. Oh, and ban the death penalty. Oh, and pay violent culturally retarded ***holes to move to your country. Thanks Olog-hai.
