How many good men and women like this heroic policeman will be sacrificed before open borders fascism is finally ended? #BlueLivesMatter

Thank God someone knows the answer!

Heh, this is up to -11 votes now, and still no one is willing to come out and answer it:

So what specifically has been dishonest about the debate until now?

I bet I know the answer they don't want to publicly answer the question. Because their answer makes them look really, really bad.

C'était un homme courageux. I'm not sure how many of us could do what he did when it comes down to making that decision.

Exactly! All the "cracking down" on Muslims and the racial profiling, as well as banning burkas and headwear, and other bigotry and extremism is what has helped fuel this kind of extremism.

Yet, sub-saharan Africans from Christian majority countries have faced just as much bigotry, discrimination and racism over decades in France yet they don't commit horrific atrocities against the innocent. Why the difference?

Some majority Muslim countries ban the burka.

For some Muslims, it is a symbol of extremism.

Are they bigots and extremists?

Of course then I forgot to say what I came on here to say... which is RIP to a true hero. Don't see many like him.

That, and the gun was probably imported from an easy place to get them... like the US. Those are the kind of things you probably meant.

Beltrame was a true public servant. It takes a lot of courage to volunteer like he did knowing how violent Islamic extremists are.

Strangerland, you are very wise indeed.

Six people down-voted this comment, but not one could actually answer it.

Which says to me that their answer is 'the debate until now hasn't been discriminatory against Muslims enough'.

He is a hero. But I wonder who really shot him when the special services stormed the place.

A HERO , speechless

More reasons to strictly control or completely stop migration from problem countries, the world needs to wake up to this threat and do all that it can to stamp it out

Sacrificed his own life to save another. That’s about as courageous it gets.

Ramadan is coming soon and there’s usually a spike in atrocities. Let’s hope no more courageous and moral people have to lose their lives to the jihadist filth.

Col Arnaud Beltrame (45), a true French hero and a man of courage and compassion. Sad loss for his family and friends and colleagues.

13 ( +13 / -0 )

What a hero.

Hopefully this will spur a more honest debate in France.

RIP to all the victims.
