... in France.

The man who slapped French President Macron on Tuesday was tried today and sentenced to four months in prison, a lifetime ban on holding a political office, and will not be allowed to possess a firearm for the next five years.

While crimes in France often take months or years to reach trial, in this case authorities used a special emergency procedure to hold a trial within just two days of the slap.


I don't see that happening here

Why does France hate the second amendment?

So very French
..
"Damien Tarel, a 28-year-old medieval history enthusiast (of course) , has been in custody since the assault on Tuesday which a prosecutor called "absolutely unacceptable" and "an act of deliberate violence".

The court gave Tarel a sentence of 18 months in jail, but 14 of those months were suspended, the broadcaster reported.

Earlier, Tarel told the court in Valence in southern France, that he acted because the president stood for all that was rotten with France, the news channel said."

France has been sliding down a bad slope in reaction to their immigrant problem. The nation of Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite has been reducing their citizen's rights.

But.. this punishment isn't too severe.

Someone doing this to the Orange Toddler would have probably been shot. Immediately.
