    Default DOOM:Not a reason to leave home...

    ... seriously....

    Man fined for breaking French Covid lockdown to 'smash a guy's face in' | World news | The Guardian

    French police have fined a man who left his home with a written lockdown declaration stating he was out to “smash a guy’s face in”.

    The man, who has not been named, had reportedly correctly filled in the legally required declaration, known as an “attestation”, with his name, address and time he left his home in Lannion, Brittany.

    However, officers found that instead of ticking one of the boxes stating a legitimate reason to go outside during France’s national lockdown – these include going shopping, visiting the doctor, travelling to work or exercising for up to one hour at a maximum distance of 1km – the man had written “aller péter la gueule à un mec”, an activity not covered by the form.

    Daniel Kerdraon, the local police chief, said his officers had discovered the 39-year-old lurking behind a car late on Friday evening.

    “When asked what he was doing he explained that he was waiting for someone to ‘smash their face in’ … he had the written form with his real name and the time he had left home – 10.15pm – but we told him his reason for going out was not valid. He was trying to fulfil the letter of the law, in his own way,” Kerdraon told local newspapers.

    As well as the €135 (£120) fine for having an insufficient excuse for being out in public, the man was also fined €150 for being drunk in a public place. He could face further fines on Monday after he is questioned about carrying the flick-knife he was found with.

    Anyone leaving their home for any reason during France’s lockdown must carry a permission form issued by the interior ministry. As might be expected of French bureaucracy, these declarations require the person’s name, address, date and place of birth and must be signed, dated and precisely timed.

    It’s not “bureaucracy” to have minimally necessary info written down before “going into the zone”

    Written relevant info on piece of paper is good way to catch ******* who break the rules - plan your route ahead, put it on paper and off you go, not a biggie to ask: in China they were welding people inside their tower blocks, but now (for many months) they live normal live while we are still in deepest of tulips.

    My French is a bit rusty, but I think it is something like this - aller péter la gueule à un mec.

    Emmanuel Macron says anti-Semitism at worst levels since WWII - CNN

    Macron says anti-Semitism is at worst levels since World War Two

    Paris (CNN)French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a crackdown on the "scourge" of anti-Semitism, days after protesters held rallies against a rise in anti-Semitic incidents across the country.

    Speaking to leaders of the Jewish community in Paris on Wednesday evening, Macron criticized a "resurgence of anti-Semitism unseen since World War II," which he said is not only happening in France but in "all of Europe and most Western democracies."
    The president added that "anti-Zionism is one of the modern forms of anti-Semitism," and in response, France will adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's definition of anti-Semitism.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."
