The spirit of Vichy lives

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.

I think you are a bit two harsh. At that point there was no way to know if another jihadi was inside the cathedral. "Hands up" would make him easier to spot if he tried to attack anyone.

No surprise now that the new Pierre Laval is President of France.
