    The scene scandalized internet users. A 14-second video has been running on social networks since Friday, January 24. A fifteen-year-old white adolescent is beaten up by a dozen black young people of about the same age.

    The scene takes place in Étampes, in Essonne. On the ground, the young man is trampled under the amused gaze of several laughing black girls who are at the scene and filming it on their cell phones.

    The shocking scene has elicited anger, especially among several political figures. The deputy of the department, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, denounced “the omerta in the media” describing as “scum” those who “had fun beating up a high school student and filming this aggression”.

    He added: “Anti-white racism is trivialized with impunity.”

    The Member of the Identity and Democracy Group, Mathilde Androuët, also spoke of “scum lynching a high school student”. She added: “There is the reality of anti-white racism.”

    The president of the RN group in the Bourogne-Franche-Comté region remarked: “Living together is another definition of hell”. Finally, the deputy RN member André Rougé tweeted: “With Emmanuel Macron, insecurity explodes everywhere in the country.”

    Faced with controversy, the national police took up the case recalling on Twitter that “Happy Slapping” – the act of filming and broadcasting an assault – was punishable by law by five years in prison and 75 000 euros fine. “The investigators of the Pharos platform are mobilized,” they explained, asking the public at the same time not to relay the video.

    The police are investigating a series of attacks that have taken place for several weeks near La Grand’Goule, in Poitiers, a city in western France where a soldier was stabbed and wounded.

    It is the third attack of its kind in less than a month on Poitiers. A young nurse and five of his comrades were victims of the so-called “youths”.
