In the early hours of Monday morning, a female police officer was filmed by gang members being kicked around. The thugs who committed the attack were proud of their work and uploaded the assault onto the internet.
Her male colleague, being so badly beaten, brandished his firearm to stop the attack.
The incident happened in Champigny-sur-Marne, France, a suburb just south-east of Paris. Social media has made this video go viral and sparked outrage all over the nation.
President Emmanuel Macron promised to bring whomever was involved in the attacks to justice.
Macron said: ‘Those guilty of the cowardly and criminal lynching of police doing their duty on the night of December 31st will be found and punished.
‘Force will support the law. Honour to the police and full support to all the agents attacked in such a low level fashion.’
Via the Daily Mail: The two officers arrived at a house in Champigny following reports of widespread disorder outside the address, where a New Year’s party was taking place.
A number of people were turned away from the house, which led to fighting in the street.
When the police arrived at the scene, they too were attacked.
The thugs filmed themselves stamping on the woman, who tried to cover herself as she is relentlessly beaten.
The female officer was the driver of the duty police captain. He too was beaten severely, however his attack was not filmed.
Upon realizing what was happening their colleagues came in to help the officers and rush them off to the hospital.
Both the female officer and duty police captain suffered concussion, along with several other injuries, but luckily their injuries are not fatal.
The gang who attacked the cops fled to a nearby housing estate after they destroyed the patrol car, flipping it upside down and bashing it to bits.
A source said: ‘The captain had tried to defend the pair using a tear gas canister, but was badly beaten up.
‘At one stage he produced his service weapon, but did not get a shot off. The female officer has been written off work for at least a week, while the captain will be off for at least 10 days.’
Gerard Collomb, French interior minster, said: ‘I just spoke with the police officers assaulted.
Everything is done to ensure that the cowardly perpetrators of these unspeakable acts are apprehended and sentenced. To attack our security forces is to attack our Republic.’
