When London police shot and killed a black gangster in 2011, the city burned for days. But when white British soldier Lee Rigby was hacked to death by black Islamists live and on video in 2013, no one even bothered to light a matchstick.
And despite the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the Bataclan massacre, and the Nice bus attack—all Islamist attacks in France which killed a combined 236 people—the native French couldn’t be troubled to even patch together a half-assed half-riot.
But here we have a solitary dusky youth worker whom police allegedly anally prong with a baton, and large swaths of the country burn. It appears that one side already has lost the will, while the other side has only started fighting. Either way, there is no respect, and so there can be no living together.
