France lets man on Islamist terror watch list join police force

StaffRebel Columnist

This story is hard to believe, but when you consider Europe's losing fight against terrorism, it doesn't seem as far-fetched.

A man who was previously on France's terror watch list for being a well-known Islamist in 2012 has been allowed to become a police officer. The Daily Caller reports that the man was reportedly unaware that was under surveillance when he applied to join the armed forces and after being rejected opted to join the police force.

Despite being on the watch list, he was recruited to be an Adjoint de Securité, which involves patrolling the streets. Details on the man were sent to the interior minister, who supervises the police.

On September 22 he was allowed to complete his training and become a fully qualified police officer. He has since been removed from the watch list.

The country's new anti-terror laws will come into effect on November 1, and will result in strict background checks on anyone recruited into the police and other forces.

As The Local reports, last year, a leaked memo revealed a growing concern about radicalization in the police force with commanding officers concerned about the behavior of 17 junior officers, four of which were converts to Islam.

And France can’t figure out why they are targeted by the Muzzies on a daily basis. Looks good on them.

Keith and Helen damn rights, we elected someone who enables and rewards terror to be our PM. We are stupider.

I can’t really in all fairness criticize France, as we here in Canada are just too stupid to do something for our own benefit after seeing what has happened in all these European countries. We may exceed the insanity that France and all those other nations are displaying. We are about to really get it going as M103 picks up speed. And when you consider the likes of Katsuya who spoke regarding M103, who is a past CSIS Agent and RCMP. If he is any indication of possible traitorous leanings favored by these agencies, that are supposed to be there to protect Canadians interests. Well if it were true then they would be similar to our government, that the real enemy, is within. When the government and those in law enforcement turn against the people and the laws of the country. What exactly do they think will happen?

France is truly lost!
This story is only one example of how lost.

I wonder how many such ‘persons of interest’ are already serving in RCMP, CSIS, other Canadian law enforcement agencies and judiciary?
