“Generalized questioning of the police”

The day before, in Roubaix, Emmanuel Macron had announced a budget extension of 500 million for security in 2022 and gave the broad outlines of his future action with, in particular, a doubling of the police on the ground, and a programming law. He also announced the establishment of“A parliamentary control body for the police”, in response to criticism of the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN) and the General Inspectorate of the National Gendarmerie (IGGN).

Posing as a defender of the police who “Have become targets”, he described Emmanuel Macron’s proposal as a new tool for controlling the police, which, according to him, “Participates in this generalized questioning of the police”.

” The situation is serious. I hear the exasperation and the anger of our fellow citizens. Tomorrow, if we do nothing, some will take justice into their own hands. And the day after tomorrow, it would be civil war. The role of a president is to do everything to avoid it ”, he said.
