Medlem av det venstreorienterte partiet til Melanchon, Stéphane Poussier, synes det var grunn til å feire at politimannen Arnaud Beltrame, ble drept av jihadisten i et supermarked i Trebes torsdag. – En politimann mindre, tvitret han.

Far-Left French politician arrested for tweets celebrating heroic officer’s death in siege

Stéphane Poussier was detained after tweets posted from his account said: “Every time a gendarme gets whacked… I think of my friend Rémi Fraisse,” an environmental protester who died after police threw a concussion grenade during demonstrations in 2014.

“And this time it was a colonel, great! It also means one less vote for (President Emmanuel) Macron,” said the tweet, which was quickly deleted and the Twitter account closed after it sparked an outcry. (..)

Mr Poussier, who failed to win a seat when he stood as a candidate in last year’s parliamentary election, was expelled from La France Insoumise (France Unbowed) party led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon soon after he sent out the offensive tweet on Saturday.

Men Poussier slapp ikke med ekskludering. Politiet avla ham et besøk og tok ham med seg. Glorifisering av terror kan gi opp til syv års fengsel og 100.000 euro i bot.

Det er kommet frem at Beltrame døde av et knivstikk mot halsen.
