The recent demonstrations organized in Paris were once again punctuated by police violence which illustrate the excesses of an institution overtaken by the evolutions of a society where freedom of expression and social unrest come together. Explanations

Did demonstrations marred by umpteenth police violence to illustrate the unease that grips the institution directly placed under the direction of the Ministry of the Interior? Obviously not.

But it is now clear that for several years now, there has been a heavy and deep malaise within the police institution, the acts committed by the police in recent months testify to this and often have for an outlet, not to say a scapegoat, of citizens, sometimes certainly quick to provoke the peacekeepers, often brought to undergo excessive assaults by the police.

However, the demonstrations which took place last November 28 in Paris, were certainly those which broke the camel's back with the patience of the President of the Republic, the National Assembly and even more of the French tired of running the risk of be exposed to a series of police violence at each rally organized on the public highway.

Saturation and Confiscation

It remains to establish the causes of these police excesses judged, rightly, as intolerable in a democracy where freedom of expression, even if expressed by public demonstration, is also guaranteed by the right to exercise it in safety. and under the protection of the republican police.

Some then put forward the structural problems from which the National Police suffers: Lack of staff, psychological saturation of personnel, attacks and threats to their persons and their families, lack of advanced training of agents, global context of terrorist threat, .. .In short !

There are plenty of arguments. But do they allow everything? It will be up to everyone to answer this question, but it is also obvious that the National Police is not a militia in the service of a State that some believe to have confiscated or devolved to their good pleasure.

The National Police is above all a republican institution intended to protect and serve the citizens who call for its rigor and impartiality. The violence observed thus seems to be firmly rooted in an institution that is the depositary of the public force, not to defend itself or to settle accounts of mafia vendetta but to protect citizens entitled to demand an unalterable exemplary nature of these police forces.

Sick Society and Shifting Criteria

But after this observation, it should also be remembered that the police institution is also, to some extent, the reflection of a sick and emotional society, inclined to intellectual ease, to judicialization just as easy, to hints of ignorance sometimes filthy, violent in its modes of expression and unbearable racist or xenophobic outbursts.

The police institution is thus revealed to be overtaken by the evolution of our society because it is anchored in hierarchical operating patterns which are now obsolete, it acts and reacts according to criteria that it believed to be fixed and which turn out to be changing.

Here again, it will be up to the world to judge by the yardstick of their criteria and provided that the degradation of our societies has a perverse effect on our institutions, starting with that of the National Police is not devoid of truth.
