Violent riots have exploded all over France after a young black man was allegedly sodomized with a police baton.

The 22-year old victim was stopped for an identity check in a Paris suburb. Video of the incident leaked online and showed 4 officers handling the man roughly (to put it mildly). One of the policemen has since been charged with aggravated rape, and the other three with aggravated assault.

The police’s relationship with locals in the area has been strained for years. A large number of young men connected to terrorist attacks in France and Belgium had ties to these Paris ‘suburbs’, which are primarily poor immigrant communities.

Those suburbs are where the riots started, though as footage of the police assault has spread, there are marches and reports of violence in at least 5 French towns. The most aggressive demonstration came from Aulnay-Sous-Bois, the victim’s hometown, where a Citroen car dealership was raided. All 17 vehicles on the lot were damaged; 14 were lit on fire.

17 men have been arrested in Aulnay so far. Meanwhile the victim, who’s only been identified by his first name, Theo, is still in the hospital recovering. He was visited by French President Francois Hollande. Both Theo and Hollande called for peace.

Some fear this alleged rape may have started a chain reaction of protests, of which we’ve only just seen the beginning. Something similar happened in 2005, with protests sweeping the nation, fueled by dissent in these poor suburban areas. Ties to terror acts aside, these neighborhood’s dissatisfaction is fueled by more basic concerns.

“Muslims in France are poorer on average than the rest of the population,” said one local. “Their kids go to schools that are not as high quality as the rest of the population. They live in neighborhoods that are not as nice as the rest of the population.”
