If the Parisian demonstration on Saturday against the Global Security law took place without major incidents, Jean-Luc Mélenchon once again criticized the strategy of maintaining order in the capital. Invited this Sunday of “BFM Politics”, in partnership with the Parisian, the leader of rebellious France notably deplored the 142 arrests on the sidelines of the procession.
“How is it that there are so many people in Paris and so few in the rest of France? he asks. There is really a signature of the prefect (Editor’s note: Paris police) Lallement, who saw the population as a sort of dangerous class. This is all totally excessive. The deputy for Marseille also considers “laughable” the government project of an “anti-Black Bloc” law, considering that the current legislation already prohibits breaking windows and being violent but “is not applied”.
IGPN, “a bogus organization”
More broadly, the 2022 presidential candidate promises, if elected, “a republican overhaul of the police […], from the cellar to the attic ”. Jean-Luc Mélenchon advocates a “police of peacekeepers”, whose “level must go up” through training. “A society in which the population hates its police and the police are suspicious of the population, we must stop that, we must enter into a logic of de-escalation,” he urges. He directly targets the Alliance and Synergie-Officiers police unions who, according to him, “spend their time adding fuel to the fire”.
PODCAST. 2012, 2017 and now 2022, Jean-Luc Mélenchon is still aiming for the Elysée
To restore confidence, the leader of LFI also wants to dissolve the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN), “a bogus body”, he tackles. “Police officers trying police officers is absurd. We need a remedy that reassures citizens and reassures the police, ”explains Mélenchon. He finally undertakes to examine “the police misfortune”: “150 suicides since the beginning of the year, there is still a problem, no? “We can restore order in the police if we put a little common sense,” he concludes.
