Even the simple incidents like train ticket dispute or simple security check could erupt into riot. One of the most recent bigger riot was at Paris Gare du Nord train station after police patrol arrested the young man for suspecting him of selling drugs there. He allegedly suffered a heart attack while arrested and died a week later.
Angry protesters claimed that suspect was the youngest member of a “long list” of “non-white men” killed by the French police and demanded justice. The police used pepper spray against the protesters who occupied the train station and disrupted it’s function.
