I came home from dinner to news that things are getting out of hand in Paris.
I have to commend the French authorities for swiftly tracking down the Charlie Hebdo murderers. Within days, they have identified and cornered the suspects. I have the feeling that if such a thing were to happen in Malaysia, our authorities would be at a loss.
However, the Kuoachi brothers are now ready to die as martyrs. I would say, don’t give them the pleasure. These people need to face justice in the Courts, not with the barrel of a gun. I hope that the French police do their best to apprehend these killers and bring them to justice.
Unfortunately, there is another hostage taking situation, which does make me wonder if there might be a third. You know the old saying that trouble comes in threes. I sure hope that it doesn’t happen though.
Now, the thing that I have to wonder is how these things will change Paris and France as a whole. I sure hope that the tensions don’t boil over and cause a meltdown in the French social structure.
Je ne suis pas Charlie.
