It’s how they “celebrate” New Year’s Eve. Hey, it’s what they do. Obama say, “respect it!”
“Over 800 cars set ablaze in France on New Year’s Eve,” The Daily Sabah, STRASBOURG, January 2, 2016:
A total of 804 vehicles were set aflame in all of France on New Year’s Eve, a 14.5 per cent decrease from the previous year, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Twitter Friday.
The 2014-2015 celebrations saw 940 cars burned.
Burning automobiles as a way to ring in the new year has grown into a trend in recent years, with mostly young men using it as a form of protest.
The ministry said 622 people were taken into custody by French authorities over New Year’s, twice as many as a year before.
The New Year’s Eve celebrations took place amid a heavy police presence seven weeks after the November 13 terror attacks in Paris
