Sarkozy sucks.

The Sociology of Everyday Life exam is over and done with, and our profile assignments are well in hand. I'm hoping to put up some visuals and reports from our trip to Serbia tomorrow.

In the meantime, I'd like to give a shout out to the parents of École Rampal who blockaded a police car to try and prevent the detention of a Chinese man who had been grabbed by the cops for not having his papers on him. Yelling "lachez-le" (let him go), they surrounded the car and demanded his release. These are the parents of preschoolers in Belleville, Paris. They were threatened with police dogs and dispersed with tear gas, and the principal of the school was held for seven hours of questionning for having allegedly called a cop a connard. Some video (French only, sorry).
