So some jihadi dude attacks a cop at the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. The police response?
1. Shoot the jihadi. Well done, mes amis.
2. Hold the French citizens and tourists at gunpoint in the cathedral.
Well, well, well.
It seems that the urge to collaborate with the enemy is not a distant instinct, at least in the Fifth Republic.
