Paris Riots Lunacy: Criminals? What Criminals?

Coverage of the Paris riots has finally slithered down to outright lunacy. The Washington Post today quoted, with a straight face, an "expert" who lamented how the rioters who are rampaging throughout France are being treated as -- horrors! -- criminals.

I'm not making this up:

"People are shouting they want to be equal," said Christophe Bertossi, an immigration specialist at the French Institute for International Relations. "And the government is treating them as if they were criminals or terrorists."

Well, true, they're not just "shouting," they're also burning and even killing. But the important thing is that the French have to be nice to them.

Hey, I have a suggestion. Maybe the French should make believe that this is 1940, and that the rioters are German troops?
