Thierry Mariani, a member of the European Parliament representing Marine Le Pen’s National Rally, criticized President Macron, calling him “completely irresponsible”, according to The Independent. Many people have criticized Macro on social media. Another user wrote, “At the same time a child was killed by police under his government, he is enjoying a show. Offensive.”
Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron blamed video games for the riots that followed the murder of a 17-year-old boy. Speaking during a crisis security meeting to discuss the ongoing violence in the country, Macron said a third of those arrested were between the ages of 14 and 18. It seems that some youths are reliving the video games that got them addicted on the streets.
this is the whole matter
On Tuesday 27 June, two police officers stopped a car on a street in Nanterre. During the argument, the police officer pulled out a pistol and shot Nahel, the driver, in the head. The driver ran the car fast and after going some distance became the victim of the accident. This was the reason of his death. After this incident, the police officer was suspended and he was taken into custody. Riots are happening for the last three days against this incident.
