March in memory of the shot teenager led to disorder in France

The media reports: participants of the march in memory of the teenagers shot by the French police tried to break through to the prefecture of the city of Nanterre, the police used tear gas. The action took place after the mother of a 17-year-old boy called on citizens to “organize an uprising against police brutality.”
Recall that the teenager was shot on Tuesday, allegedly due to non-compliance with police requirements.

Several hundred people, including black bloc radicals, stretched over an area of several kilometers around Nanterre Prefecture. They continue to attack the police in groups, picking up stones, throwing glass bottles and incendiary mixtures. The police disperse the radicals with stun grenades and tear gas. She used rubber bullets several times.

As a result, riots broke out in several cities, which have been going on for two days. Young people set fire to cars, police and government buildings. The Interior Ministry this morning reported the detention of 150 people.
The policeman who shot the teenager has been charged with premeditated murder.

The French authorities called on citizens to “calm down”, while demanding a fair investigation of the case. The French president called the incident “inexplicable and inexcusable,” adding that “nothing justifies the death of a young man.” The Prime minister said that the police acted “outside the bounds of what is permitted.”
