French President Emmanuel Macron is seeking solutions to the recent unrest caused by teenage rioters in France. It all began with the shooting death of a 17-year-old teen who refused to comply with orders at a traffic stop. Macron has proposed that the parents of these young rioters should be financially penalized, describing it as a “minimum price for the first screw up.”

France is a country where unruly behavior among children is rife. Many people believe that parents neglect their basic responsibilities, resulting in private infrastructure being destroyed on a nightly basis. Some observers even refer to France as the “land of the child-king.” In public spaces, such as the local pool or public transport, adults who voice their concerns about misbehaving children are often met with the response that kids have the right to express themselves freely. As a result, the state has now taken on the parental role, imposing curfews to ensure that unaccompanied children are kept at home after 9 or 10 pm. The fact that such heavy-handed actions are necessary speaks volumes about the extent of the problem.

Macron himself, in keeping with the French parenting style, initially sided with the kids when he criticized the police officer involved in the shooting before the legal process had even begun. It is worth noting that the teenager, Nahel, had a history of criminal offenses and evading arrest.

Children in France often act with impunity, knowing that they are unlikely to face any significant consequences for their actions. Even those who have been through the legal system and have been convicted of crimes often receive partially or fully suspended sentences, or serve their time at home with an ankle bracelet. Those who do end up in prison usually have prior convictions for similar crimes.

This lack of repercussions has resulted in a severe lack of respect for law enforcement officers and their authority. Conversely, some officers may overcompensate for this lack of respect, leading to excessive force. The areas affected by the recent riots are not surprising; they are predominantly low-income neighborhoods with subsidized housing where immigrant populations have been concentrated since the 1960s. Originally, these enclaves were intended to provide cheap labor for French industry, but over time, they have become marginalized and neglected. As a result, those living in these areas do not identify strongly with France and do not respect the state that facilitated their segregation.

The consequences of these failed integration policies are now being felt. The largest employer federation in France estimates that damages to private businesses alone exceed one billion euros. This figure does not include the destruction of public infrastructure, such as schools, transport, and city halls. This unrest is a clear indication that decades of failed diversity policies have come at a cost.
