I guess the French state is an ogre if it suppresses riot rights.

83,783 days since the storming of the Bastille! Viva la revolution!

It's significant, not particularly in itself, but because it will further ratchet up an already tense situation.

Police exhausted ahead of Saturday
"We've never experienced this, it's not even policing, it's urban violence we're dealing with, we've got the extreme left, the extreme right, suburban youths coming to take advantage of looting shops.." - policeman
Police Union Tables Strike Notice
The union Vigi joined the movement of yellow vests calling for an indefinite strike from Saturday
"It is time to organize legally and to be in solidarity with them, for the benefit of all," wrote the officials of the trade union

Vigi have less than 4% support in the police rank and file and are a CGT affiliate union. So less to the story than meets the eye. Now if one of the big two police unions makes a public announcement of this types, thats a big deal.

I mean regular folks will get sick of self appointed enforcers on street corners and criminals looting and damaging property.

You think folks in Paris will appreciate outsiders smashing their city up ?

You think parents will be happy schools are taken over by hoodlums and their kids can't get an education ?

If Macron is smart he'll wait for the public to tire of it all. Which they will. These yellow vests are just a mob.

On the plus side I'll be glad to see yellow vests ditched, there are many other high visibility options available that don't look cheap. The bloody things attract wasps too!
