A16-year-old boy was savagely murdered at a French village’s annual winter ball earlier this month. According to witnesses, the gang of young men responsible for the boy’s death and the corresponding rampage on Nov. 18 made clear they were out to “stab white people.”
In the days since, tensions in the European nation have begun to boil over, prompting the French regime to clamp down on so-called “far-right” groups and to urge citizens not to take the law into their own hands.
Olivier Véran, a socialist spokesman for the French government, stressed Tuesday, “We are lucid. There is a violent minority, which sows terror. But there is no justification for taking the law into your own hands. It is up to the rule of law to provide answers.”
On their way in, the group of thugs stabbed a guard, slicing through his fingers.
According to France24, the attackers ultimately murdered a 16-year-old high school student named Thomas. A witness named Hugo indicated that Thomas was stabbed in the heart and throat.
One of Thomas’ friends told Le Dauphiné Libéré newspaper that he heard a commotion outside where Thomas, a beloved rugby player who wasn’t “the type to dance,” had gone out for a smoke. Thomas’ friend quickly went outside to investigate.
“I was stabbed in the shoulder and in the back,” said the unnamed teen. “I saw my friend Thomas being stabbed. … I saw another friend of mine get stuck in the back, I compressed his wound to make a tourniquet; he was hit in the kidney. It was horrific.”
The teen recalled the attackers saying, “‘We’re here to stab white people.'”
