as eight days of riots over poor conditions in Paris-area housing projects spread to 20 towns.
The riots started last Thursday after the electrocution deaths of two teenagers who ran from a soccer game and hid in a power station in the northeastern suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois after they saw police enter the area. Youths in the neighborhood said police chased the boys to their death.
If they weren't guilty, why run?

We should take a lesson from the French. When the opressed stand up against the opressive powers, it gets noticed. We've become too lazy to care when our rights are trampled.

I think the police, and politicians, in France really need to crack down on all that violence once and for all, or it will get worse, and it is pretty bad already.

8 days of riots...
and i have listened to NPR and watched CNN every morning and have seen nothing on this...
I myself am curious as to why I haven't heard anything about this in the US Media... it makes me wonder what else they aren't telling us?
