Yellow Vest movement wearing down French police
Oct 07, 2019
Although the US media has issued a blackout on news about the Yellow Vest movement, it has been ongoing for nearly a year. French police have been worn down, claiming to be underpaid and overworked. So far, 52 police officers have committed suicide since January.
About 48 weeks of yellow vest violence has finally sent the French police force to their breaking point. Deteriorating working conditions, low morale, and a suicide crisis have taken a significant toll on officers. Conditions are so disturbing that tens of thousands of people, including many police officers, staged a protest this week in the streets of Paris over their frustrations, reported AFP.
Police unions have warned since the yellow vest violence broke out, some 52 officers have committed suicide since January….
One officer told Le Parisien, a French daily newspaper, that "We were heroes, but we've become zeros."
Another officer told AFP on Wednesday, that he and fellow officers feel like the "dregs of society" at this point.
How long can this continue before Macron, the Rothschild banker-turned-president is driven from office?
