Several police officers from the Paris suburb of Kremlin-Bicêtre [no kidding. Ed.] are in trouble after photos surfaced of them in blackface at a "negro" party, according to a report in Le Figaro.
Here we see les flics, some apparently wearing frizzy or dreadlock wigs [No kidding? It's not their real hair? Ed.] dressed in what seems to be improvised African garb. This is not a costume, they explained, but a representation of normal street clothing as seen every day in many Paris suburbs.
As for the second photo, well, what can one say except that the party was meant to be private. However, one of the cops' colleagues, Claudy "the Rat" Siar -- formerly a "racial equality officer" posted the images online. Guess he was miffed at not being invited to the party.
The five officers, whose names were not published, face an internal review. It's not clear what sort of disciplinary action they may face. Deportation to... let's say Detroit... seems not to be an option.
