French SWAT Team Rappel Fail

Wow that looks like it would have hurt.

The description just says this:

The gunman, who burst on Thursday at dawn in an outbreak of Rosny-sous-Bois which he is suspected of raping a resident, was overpowered and arrested by late afternoon.

And I don’t know French so I have no idea what they are talking about in the video.

Just this weekend, I performed a similar maneuver to gain entry to my buddy’s apartment.

So : A small translation to English :

Women : The intervention as just beginned and we are far away on a roof. The raid…
Men : (Stop the discussion) During your speaking, we see again the direct live of this intervention. In fact, the Raid becames by the upper stage and arrested the gunman with any aggression. The gunman was unarmed when the raid became.
Women : Yes sure, at this morning the gunman was see with a shotgun but at this moment, the gunman was unarmed.
Women to Women : Motivation : 2 Hostages : Story of the Man…

Looks like the French commando was sick on “Hold on to the damned rope” day.
Gives a whole new meaning to “Special Forces” :D

Whenever the bird flies by the camera right after the guy fell, I thought it was the guy on his rope somehow, LOL.

His Gallic instincts overcame him and he fled.

“His Gallic instincts overcame him and he fled.”

Well, I knew such a comment was due, and, right on cue, here it is!

Hint : it’s not 2003 anymore, and this kind of crap has became really stale, and really, awfully tiring, to the point I’m almost thinking about cheering whenever an US soldier is killed or crippled fighting one of those skirmishes in the “GWOT” (even while the successive Us administrations suck up to the oil sheiks, and open the floodgates of immigration & multiculturalism at home)… but I said “almost”, and I won’t, because I know that beyond petty online ego-stroking, there are real people, risking their skin for good.

Still, it’s people like you, crass, smug and propagandized to the hilt, who have made me lost any undue love I had of the USA; still know some americans I sincerely call friends, but, that slice of the “ugly american” collective mind I’ve witnessed and still witness over and over, really got me rid of any illusion of friendship between our two countries… and actually made me proud and prouder to be french and to belong even in my small way to the History of France – and not the “comics books” History of France that seems so prevalent, especially among the phony, ‘Fox News’ so-called “conservatives” … what a sea-change from what I felt right after 9/11…

As far as I’m concerned, all the chest-thumpers, tacticool, armchair commandoes, military-worshipping-draft-dodgers (always ready to support the troops with a bumper sticker but not ready to guzzle up less gas to go to the mall, happy to have their leadership selling out to the chinese and the saudis as long as they wave little flags in front of them) can all drown in their own Hubris, french-bashing free of charge.
This is disheartening.

Kevin the hapless french guy, off to his rant

Gotta say Kev, let me be the first of many Americans who will for you call this:


jeff from CA April 1, 2011 at 10:14 pm

Where in the founding documents does says American are entitled to be assholes? How many World War 2 vets would be happy to see you use their sacrifices to make fun of someone else?

Especially since they take care of our war graves over there and there are STILL towns in Normandy that fly our flag.

It’s f’ing dishonorable to make fun of our Allies when we didn’t get involved while the most innovative army of the time bled millions of people. Oceans make great moats.
They helped us start our country and gave us that wonderful statue.

You probably inherited your citizenship and now you take our honor and use it to score cheap points for your own ego. You should be ashamed to call yourself American.


That one guy April 2, 2011 at 01:36 am

Dude calm down seriously. Dont be butthurt just because he got you M’kay?


proud hipoint user March 24, 2011 at 02:07 pm

Perturbo March 24, 2011 at 06:15 pm

The french want to take the lead?!?

Yeah….this is going to go well in Libya.


Zach March 24, 2011 at 07:14 pm

All joking aside.

I hope that French officer is alright, that looked like it could have ended rather badly for him


ozwald March 24, 2011 at 08:53 pm

way to be mature about this. :(


Bobby March 26, 2011 at 01:41 am

Seriously, hope that guy is alright. Even if the ground was just below frame he would end up pretty hurt.


Antibubba March 26, 2011 at 09:28 pm

The name of the officer who fell after being bumped by the commando above him is Dreyfus.
