    Lille

    Part of the city of Lille is on lock down, local media outlets reported. The incident began at the Porte d’Arras metro stop near the southern part of the city, according to the Daily Mail.

    A local journalist said the violence stemmed from a confrontation between Arab or black drug dealers in a relatively violent area. The 14-year-old was shot in the leg, while one of the other injured individuals was injured in the neck. The third person who had been shot was rushed to the Saint Vincent de Paul hospital, La Voix du Nord reported.

    Anti-terrorist police were deployed to the scene, but according to later reports the shooting was a “revenge attack”.

    “A car pulled up outside the station and targeted the three youths,” said a police source. “It appears this was a settling of scores.”

    The shooting was thought to be related to the drugs trade in Lille, and was carried out by “a hooded man”, the police source told the British daily The Sun.

    According Teleport.org, “a gun death occurs once every 26 days, 22 hours, 29 minutes and 33 seconds,” in Lille, France, mainly in areas populated by Muslim North Africans. With a crime rate of 62.8 per 1,000 inhabitants, the North ranks 14th in France’s departements for the intensity of mainly migrant delinquency.

    According to the findings of the police and gendarmerie drug trafficing is not decreasing: In 2016, 75 major networks of traffickers were dismantled, 18 more than in 2015.

    Faced with migrant crime, law enforcers are voting increasingly against immigration. From a study by CEVIPOF, a political research center at Sciences Po it was revealed that “police and the military vote more increasingly Front National… 51.5 percent of them voted for a Front National candidate in 2015, against 30 percent in 2012. ”

    Carl Hart, a researcher from Columbia University noted that the trend was similar in die US. “Some 85 percent of those arrested or prosecuted for narcotics were black,” Hart found.

    As French author Eric Zemour remarked on 6 March 2010, during Thierry Ardisson’s show Salut les Terriens on Canal +: “French immigrants (are) more stopped [by the police] than others because most traffickers are black and Arab … it is a fact “.
