sounds like the post-scarman report met police - replacing racist state thuggery with generalised state thuggery. an improvement of sorts.
The "Cadets of the Republic" program started last fall just before France was swept by a wave of rioting by marauding youths who burned thousands of cars, clashed with police and vandalized shops across impoverished suburbs.
