Police violence: those who "mess around" will be dismissed, promises Gérald Darmanin


Faced with an accumulation of cases of police violence, the Minister of the Interior is living a week more than complicated.

Between the very controversial law "global security" and the revelation of cascading cases of police blunders, we had a quieter week in Place Beauvau.

Suffice to say that Gérald Darmanin was eagerly awaited this Thursday evening on the set of the 20 Hours of France 2.

After reaffirming his "unwavering support for the police and the gendarmes", he assured that those who "mess" will be punished.

In other words, suspended or revoked.

"When there are people messing around, they must leave the uniform of the Republic".

"If justice finds a fault", the three police officers incriminated in a controversial arrest on Saturday in the 17th arrondissement of Paris will therefore be revoked, assured the minister.

Videos unveiled Thursday by the Loopsider site show the beating of music producer Michel Z. "Unspeakable extremely shocking images", commented Gerald Darmanin.

The suspension of a fourth police officer was also announced in the evening.

Producer hit by police officers: "I was lucky to have videos"

Rarely, this affair has mobilized even the world of sport.

"My France hurts", for example wrote on social networks the French international Antoine Griezmann, quickly supported by Kylian Mbappé.

For now, the three police officers have been suspended for four months.

"Should we evacuate (the Place de la République)?

Yes "

As promised, the tenant of Place Beauvau also unveiled the conclusions of the General Inspectorate of the National Police on the operation carried out Monday evening at Place de la République.

Under the gaze of the press, many slippages had been noted during the evacuation of a migrant camp installed by surprise.

Exiles, journalists and associations were then driven from the center of Paris with tear gas and de-encircling grenades.

“Should we evacuate?

Yes ”, he began by saying, assuming the choice of this express dismantling.

A police commissioner, author of a “totally unjustified” hook on a migrant, will however be summoned to a disciplinary council for “disproportionate use of force”, indicated Gérald Darmanin.

Rémy Buisine denies the words of Gérald Darmanin

He also mentioned the case of journalist videographer Rémy Buisine, who claims to have been "molested several times" by an agent.

Gérald Darmanin asked for time in this matter.

He claims to lack for the moment "elements" on the context, specifying that the journalist would not have wished to testify to the IGPN.

"This is obviously false, I remain available to investigators as soon as possible," immediately reacted the person on Twitter.

Finally, in a third investigation, the IGPN cleared a police officer who carried out a “frontal hunt” in the face of a “real and increasingly imminent danger”.


Burr too much.

@RemyBuisine who had just been checked, is stuck in a corner, hit and threatened by this same group of police officers!

Incarnation of the security strategy desired by Emmanuel Macron to secure the right-wing electorate for the presidential election of 2022, Gérald Darmanin will also be heard on Monday by the Laws Commission of the National Assembly on these blunders.

“Comprehensive security” law: article 24 being “rewritten”

In addition, Gérald Darmanin was questioned on article 24, this famous text which would prohibit the malicious distribution of images of police officers.

This text "makes it possible to touch the protection of the press and of the police," defended the minister.

While the journalists' unions refused to meet the Prime Minister on Thursday afternoon, a commission bringing together "magistrates, journalists and police" will however be created in the coming days, announced Mr. Darmanin.

This commission is supposed to lead to "a new writing" of article 24, said Matignon at the same time.
