Paris Is Blazing After Youths Killed On Stolen Moped

Riots broke out in Paris last night after two “youths” were killed when they collided with a police car… on their stolen moped.

The BBC has video of the rioting HERE.

The protesting youth obviously were not interested in talking with the authorities:

Eight people were arrested and 21 police officers were injured—including the town’s police chief who was beaten in the face after he tried to negotiate with the rioters, a police official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
