It's really no wonder, John. I think that the city police (Police
Municipale) are afraid to do anything, so as not to get caught in the racist
mode, so a lot of times they do nothing. Most of the time people prefer to
call the Gendarmerie; they appear to trust the military more than the local
police. At least that's the way it is around here. We rarely see the local
police (there are only about 5 or 6 total, a couple of women and the rest
men), and they are rarely calledwhen serious problems happen.
