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.

so we'll make them coppers to combat unemployment. does this remind anyone else of clockwork orange? If we make all the marginalised, screwed over youth into coppers they can brutalise in turn, but for a good cause - law and order!
