French police arrested more than 100 people after gangs of masked youths stormed through Paris suburbs and the center of Lyon on Halloween night, authorities said on Thursday, following a message on social media calling for a purge against police.
In the deprived Seine-Saint-Denis area north of Paris, a sportswear store was looted and young people robbing a grocery store attacked police with acid, according to Denis Jacob of police union Alternative Police.
Authorities said the riots were stoked by messages circulated on social media, apparently inspired by the Hollywood horror film franchise The Purge, which depicts a violent dystopia in which all crimes are made legal for a day.
Youths in depressed suburbs of French cities have been torching hundreds of vehicles on New Years Eve and Bastille Day since the early 1990s.

acid attacks too, hmmm who could it be, who could it be...dare I say MUSLIMS?
American movie and TV producers to partially blame here.
If they really want to talk about “blood on their hands”.
A whole decade of dystopian and nihilist movies, books, and TV shows has made for apocalypse-chic. Where people think societal breakdown and anarchy is something to aim for.
There are an estimated 135 different nationalities in Saint-Denis, most extremely poor, including an estimated 600,000 Muslims from North African or sub-Saharan African backgrounds, the Daily Mail reported.
The official legal population in Saint-Denis is estimated at 1.5 million.
Were their names Pierre? Louis? Charles? Jaques?
Apparently Big Social Media allows anarchists and leftists to organize riots using their platforms.
Have relatives on the outskirts of Paris. TOTALLY SOCIALIST. They welcome this.
When my hubby and I got married....they gave my husband a book of porn as a wedding gift. No. I’m not kidding.
Needless to say......I’m not really “close” to the in-laws. They think they are better than I and my family.
No, I love horror movies, but I don’t go out & maim or murder people. It’s called knowing the difference between right & wrong. This is violent thuggery pure & simple.
Sounds like the last half-century of Tsarist Russia. Many psychopathic youth; nihilism was a way of life, and terrorists were that era's rock stars.
Muzzy was my thought, too. When it’s open season on the police, the police need to reply in kind. They’re ferals and as such will continue their behavior.
Definitely French Amish
Time to shoot and ask questions later.
The best answer to “The Purge” is a “Counter-Purge” with good firepower and lots of handcuffs.
St. Denis. Say no more.
