A 17-year-old teenager was shot and killed by a cop during a traffic stop in a Paris suburb. Police witnessed Nahel Merzouk speeding in a bus lane and shot when he tried to drive away. A few links:

Nationalists have been having a week with #ParisHasFallen on Twitter. They'll tell you it's the end of France. The riots are terrible but not exactly the most surprising thing given France's history.

There's a lot of nuance that I'll never know about the situation, although dragging a running chainsaw behind your motorbike is next-level mayhem. :whatthe: :olol:
