France used to be a nice country. Then the leaders admitted large numbers of Muslim immigrants and now the society is crumbling from crime and dysfunction.
Hungarian journalists visited the “City of Light,” as Paris was once called, and reported on the deteriorating state of society.
Muslim immigration has been an unmitigated disaster. In Marseilles (touted as an ideal diverse city not long ago), the Muslim gangs are armed with Kalashnikovs. The most recent New Years car-b-que saw nearly 1200 vehicles torched by yutes in Muslim neighborhoods. A January poll found that 70 percent of French citizens believe that their country has too many immigrants.
We learn from the Hungarian report that gang warfare occurs just a few kilometers from the Eiffel Tower.
“It is amazing that bullet-proof vests are still not compulsory for tourists,” remarks the narrator.
Muslim immigration has been the worst public policy ever. The United States should learn from Europe’s mistake and stop importing future enemies before it’s too late.
01:38 200,000 (immigrants) arrive every year in France, and most of them settle in the
01:44 suburbs of Paris, near the airport. One or their destinations is
01:50 Sevran, a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris. People from 78 different countries
01:56 live here in this settlement of some one thousand inhabitants.
02:01 We met the mayor of this commune in a café in Paris. Stéphan Gatignon, left-wing politician.
02:09 “There were periods in which there was no day without a shooting in our commune.
02:14 I proposed for the first time in 2009 the army should be deployed. If French soldiers
02:20 are capable of keeping order in places like Mali, let them do the same here.
02:27 We also need peace keepers like those of the UN here.”
02:34 Would you imagine that just a few km away from the Eiffel Tower gang wars are taking place?
02:39 It is amazing that bullet-proof vests are still not compulsory for tourists.
02:45 Laurent Obertone says that the suburbs of Paris have turned into ghettos.
02:50 The French elite became outraged when Sarkozy referred to immigrants attacking police as mobs.
02:57 “What if we went to the suburbs?”
03:02 “I do not recommend this, not even we French dare go there anymore. But nobody talks
03:08 about this in public, of course. However, neither those who claim ‘long live
03:14 multiculturalism, Paris is wonderful!’ dare enter the suburbs.”
03:20 But before this, let’s look back at Strasbourg. Last week we ended here. The youngsters
03:26 from the suburbs spend their time riding quads. They don’t care if we film them.
03:31 “This is Baghdad! You are now in Baghdad!”
03:34 This is what they call among themselves this residential complex in Strasbourg.
03:40 They hate police, and while explaining this to us, a social worker — also an immigrant — appeared.
03:46 So you are filming here in order to reinforce clichés?
03:50 They want to show that here youngsters display aggression and smoke joints!?
03:54 “You can’t take that away!”
03:56 “Sure you want to show that young Arabs, immigrants and Kosovars
04:00 and others make troubles in the suburbs. Why do you allow this?”
04:03 Well many thanks, after this, they stopped being communicative.
04:06 “Delete that! You understand? Delete that so that we can see you do it!”
04:12 This was all we could film. The youngsters attacked us, wanted to snatch away our cameras,
04:18 jostled us, and wanted to run us over. They threatened us that we wouldn’t escape alive from Baghdad.
04:24 As we tried to escape while they were quarreling, they stopped us with a shower of stones.
04:30 In the end, the boss pardoned us, because he did not want problems
04:35 with the authorities for attacking reporters.
04:40 We were lucky, we succeeded in saving some footage as a souvenir.
04:48 Violence is an everyday issue in the districts inhabited by immigrants.
04:55 Laurent Obertone signed some hundred copies of his best-selling book in just a few
05:01 hours in Strasbourg. He says that territorial disputes are an everyday issue between the
05:07 French and the immigrants.
05:09 “The immigrants consider the district in where they live to be their own; they stop at
05:15 nothing if it is about chasing away those who they judge as not belonging to their group.
05:21 We are returning to the tribal life; the boss tries to take under his control as much territory as
05:27 he can from the country, while the French justice does not act as it should.
05:33 The sentences even encourage criminals.”
05:40 And now again in Paris. We step out of the tube near to the Sacré Coeur.
05:44 We would have no difficulties in buying drugs at the stop, they were offered to us.
05:49 They are sold at the entrance by the dealers. At first sight, all this seems a chaos,
05:55 but this is organized crime. Watchmen are deployed to the surveillance points.
06:01 It is lucrative. According to the police, a dealer earns here some 400-500 euros per day.
06:07 The reason: 1 Kg. of marijuana costs just a few hundred euros in Morocco.
06:13 Divided up, it costs at least 10 times more in Paris. In no stock exchange in the world can
06:19 one earn so much money so fast. The only remaining question is the risk of being nabbed.
06:24 According to Marine LePen, the risk is zero. Police don’t dare enter some districts anymore.
06:30 These are the so-called no-go zones.
06:35 “Unfortunately, the number of no-go zones has grown exponentially.
06:39 There the authorities are not able to maintain the laws of the (French) republic.
06:43 There are hundreds of districts of this kind in which mafias, drugs and weapons rule.
06:50 Those who do not realize that the crime map and the immigration map overlap,
06:55 they are simply blind. Nowadays the immigrant criminals cannot even be expelled.”
07:01 Here the camera is the enemy number one. There are many of them, however.
07:07 The police installed them. At the headquarters in Paris Capt. Mongendre shows us how the system works.
07:13 “This is the headquarters. If needed, the police operation can be directed here by the prefect or the
07:19 Interior Minister, or even by the President of the Republic, depending on the scale of the situation.
07:24 Apart from the images transmitted by the 1200 cameras installed by the police, here in this
07:29 headquarters we also see those from public transport and the railway service cameras.
07:34 This is a huge network — in this way we have almost 10,000 cameras to keep Paris
07:39 and its suburbs under surveillance.
07:41 An astonishing number of cameras. Any agent can freely choose what to keep a closer look at with
07:48 the help of the joystick. Some cameras have also been installed on the Arc du Triomphe.
07:55 “That’s Place de la Concorde over there, it is 2.5 km away”
08:01 “This is the most powerful zoom in France.”
08:04 Even the number plate can be read with the help of the cameras, and what’s more,
08:08 we can even take a look through the windows of the Montparnasse Tower.
08:12 The Interior Ministry decided to install this surveillance network together with the
08:16 reduction in police personnel. Now the police patrol just with cameras, for this is cheaper,
08:22 and allegedly more efficient. And more secure, of course. It is easier to observe dealers at work and
08:30 catch them with the help of cameras. That is why youngsters like ruining them.
08:35 They simply daub them with paint. Violent crimes are on the rise in the capital.
08:41 Here’s more shocking footage. The man pushes the waiting passenger to the rails of the metro.
08:49 “The surveillance system helps considerably in the work of the investigators.
08:54 As an example, the escape route of the armed jewelry robber can be tracked. Moreover,
08:58 the footage is archived for 30 days, so it is easy to find out who and when was at the crime scene”
09:07 The 10,000-camera system also allows police to easily track down the escape routes of criminals.
09:14 Here can one see a suspect fleeing with a motor vehicle.
09:17 We met him some hours later in the holding cell of the neighboring police station.
09:23 The police chief was our guide.
09:26 “Where do you think you are? You think you are at home?”
09:30 “Sit down and shut up!” — “I won’t shut up!”
09:34 Many offenders are youngsters. Among the listed belongings there is a Bulgarian passport.
09:40 This is uncommon, for they usually have no documents. They usually lie that they are younger
09:45 than thirteen; that is how they try to slow down the processing.
09:52 “French law stipulates that minors cannot be deported.
09:56 However, there are offences which are committed usually by gypsy children.
10:01 They appeared some years ago in the capital. They try to make you sign petitions with no
10:07 authorization for that, and meanwhile they rob you.”
10:12 Here you see similar footage from an earlier report. These young girls also tried to rob us;
10:19 we met them many times. Here you can see how they operate. This was filmed by the police.
10:29 “There are many pickpockets in the old city in Paris; their main booty consists of mobile phones and
10:35 wallets. Of course, there are some who do not hold back at turning aggressive, they knock down
10:42 the victim and take away even the bag itself. Unfortunately, knife attacks have recently become
10:50 frequent. There are also some crooks who would like to change their mobiles, and therefore they
10:57 falsely claim that somebody stole it from them. But the video recordings quickly show the truth.”
11:07 But where are firefighters rushing now? Setting trash containers and cars on fire is a national sport
11:13 in the suburbs. Nice little trick. They decoy the police, and then they insidiously attack them.
11:23 Our team goes now on patrol, but not to the suburbs, of course.
11:27 “Let’s go!“
11:29 The guys tell us that here the biggest problem is when Muslims block the streets while praying.
11:34 “We heard about a quarrel in the neighborhood next to ours. We are going there now.”
11:43 In the end, there was no need for reinforcements. By the way, police in France think now twice about
11:49 whether to pursue them or not. They know well that if the suspect suffers an accident and dies,
11:56 that will invariably lead to riots.
11:59 “What about the so-called no-go zones?”
12:02 “Having worked in the suburbs of Paris, among them also in St. Denis, I can tell you that there are
12:08 no such zones. Well yes, there are situations in which police action does not take place immediately,
12:16 instead we concentrate on the most severe cases, and I do not deny that we need time to prepare,
12:22 and the proper equipment. If needed, we enter even the most dangerous zones, yet not with
12:27 everyday police cars, but with full weaponry. We must plan carefully how to withdraw before we
12:33 enter (those zones). Neither do I deny that the police pay a huge price for this.
12:40 Many of my colleagues were wounded during those operations, but this does not scare us.”
12:45 There are a great number of recidivists in France. Laurent Obertone enviously mentions the positive
12:50 examples of USA, and also of Hungary, where a “three strikes” law is in place. Truth be told,
12:55 France does not have enough prisons, however.
12:59 “The French are too tolerant, this is already pathological. From the sixties on we have been trying
13:06 with alternative solutions instead of prisons, but all of them failed, and nobody acknowledges it.
13:11 Meanwhile, they build prisons in the USA, but we don’t. This is also a communication problem, of course:
13:17 how would it sound if the government builds prisons in spite of “improving” (criminal) statistics?”
13:29 Criminal statistics are “promising” indeed: last year 4500 dealers were nabbed in Paris alone.
13:35 7 tons of marijuana and 200 kg of cocaine were seized. The left-wing mayor of Sevran wrings
13:40 his hands, however. He says the market did not notice this.
13:44 Gang wars are an everyday issue in Marseille, Lyon, and the suburbs of Paris.
13:49 The number of innocent victims is on the rise.
13:52 “Weapons which were used in the Balkan wars have now appeared here.
13:59 There were also cases in which bullets went astray and hit the walls of a classroom.”
14:06 “In the school?” “Yes, the bullets went astray, in a primary school classroom, during a lesson.”
14:13 “In broad daylight?” “Yes, in broad daylight.”
14:19 France spends an average of 115 billion euros per year in order to secure public order.
14:25 This is twice the budget of Hungary.
14:29 “It is truly risky to write a book on public security in the suburbs.
14:33 Nobody talks about it in the media, they think that there are no problems.
14:38 But if I dare to say that in fact there are, then I am deemed a racist,
14:42 and I may easily be called even ‘Nazi’”
14:45 Does this method sound familiar? Just because someone says that two thirds of crimes
14:51 are committed by immigrants.
