The BBC's Alasdair Sandford says there is a lot of anger in Villiers-le-Bel that an initial results of an internal police enquiry suggest officers were not to blame for the crash.Yes, but the discrimination they're claiming isn't age discrimination, nor are they rioting because of youthful high spirits.These are crime-ridden black and Muslim suburbs, which are a result of years of bad immigration policy in France. And the BBC is just omitting that. The only mention is in theÂ very last paragraph mentions that the two teenagers who died in a stupid motorcyle accident were "of Algerian origin."
He adds that although plenty of money has been poured into areas like Villiers le Bel - an equal opportunities law was passed designed to combat discrimination and to boost job opportunities for young people - that seems irrelevant when resentment between young people and the police seems worse than ever.
Correspondents say a third of the 26,000 inhabitants in Villiers-le-Bel are under 24 and jobs are hard to come by.[BBC NEWS | Europe | Paris rioters 'criminals' says PM]
