A sign calling for the murder of police officers was observed during the demonstration "against police violence" in Besançon on Saturday, reported the prefecture of Doubs, condemning it "firmly".
A cardboard on which was written "a cop, a bullet" was observed during this demonstration, as Le Figaro was able to see on images shot by Radio Sud Besançon and broadcast on YouTube.
The prefect of Doubs, Jean-François Colombet, shared in a statement his "indignation" at "this scandalous and unspeakable act against the police". This action also comes "less than 48 hours after an attempted homicide of extreme and rare violence" against a police officer of the BAC in Sochaux, recalls the prefecture.
A police officer was seriously injured Thursday, while he participated in the arrest of a 22-year-old man already convicted and the subject of a search warrant for escape, said the prosecutor of Montbéliard.
The police are mobilized day after day on our territory to ensure the safety and tranquility of all our fellow citizens, "said the prefect.
Many anti-police slogans were also chanted during this demonstration that gathered 470 people, according to a count of the prefecture.
