That vacation destination list...

...keeps getting shorter...another day, another akbar

An attacker with an automatic weapon opened fire on police on Paris’ iconic Champs-Elysees Thursday night, killing one officer and seriously wounding two others before police shot and killed him.

Two police officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation, said the attacker had been flagged as an extremist.

Security forces are more widespread in Paris since deadly Islamic extremist attacks in recent years, and France remains under a state of emergency.

UPDATE: Live and don't learn... and die
The "alleged" ISIS gunman, identified as 39-year-old Karim C - who was jailed for 20 years for trying to kill officers in 2001.
Wait, a 20 year sentence?
In 2003 he was sentenced to 20 years inside a high security prison following the attacks in Roissy-en-Brie, also in Seine-et-Marne, but was let out in 2016 following an appeal ruling.

France is in a state of emergency and at its highest possible level of alert since a string of terror attacks that began in 2015, which have killed over 230 people.
Hmmm... 2003 + 20 = 2023. any lessons for Canada here?


ASK THE CBC: Those darned Frenchies...

...always "assailing" the cops...another day, another akbar

old white guy says.............maybe someone will come up with a clean up Europe campaign, free transportation, uniforms, guns and all the ammo you can use. Oh, wait, we already did that. Too bad they weren't able to keep it clean.
