France police brutality: Paris officers suspended over brutal beating of black man

A Black man beaten up by several French #police officers said he is seeking justice after the publication of videos showing officers repeatedly punching him, using a truncheon and tear gas against him for no apparent reason. French Interior Minister Gerald #Darmanin ordered the officers involved in the case suspended. The incident came as President Emmanuel Macron’s government is pushing a new bill that restricts the ability to film police, which has prompted #protests from civil liberties groups and journalists concerned that it would allow police brutality to go undiscovered and unpunished.
