(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #224 - Read: Matthew Rigouste, police domination (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 10 Mar 2013 10:25:51 +0200

Domination police , new album Mathieu Rigouste, specialist security issue and post-colonialism, just released by Editions La Fabrique. In line with the Enemy Within, he is interested by the operation of the police and its methods of domination. For him, they are closer, â intrinsically old colonial methods of supervision. The police will treat them differently depending on whether the population lives or not within zones "endo-colonial." These parties focus most exploited the proletariat, often non-white. These populations are subject to special treatment from the state forces - primarily the police - similar to a low-intensity war. ---- For Rigouste, there is a clear kinship between the register and safe methods of colonial warfare, theorized by the cons-insurgency doctrines which involve surveillance, grid establishment of a quasi-permanent state of exception and systematized violence from the forces of "order."

Already described in The Enemy Within , it is the detail of policing that interests the author first recalls the origins of the BAC (Brigade Anti Crime). Plainclothes police brigade responsible for carrying out the missions of harassment of the population, the tray is in direct relation to the old colonial policies assigned to North Africans living in France (the BNA - Brigade of North Africans - become BAV - Brigade assaults and violence).

The author then examines how the safe management of neighborhoods "endocoloniaux" benefits to an entire market sector of the security market that consumes huge. He takes the example of arms "non-lethal" as Flashball and Taser. These, while tightening the repression in neighborhoods, form juicy profits for multinational control. This dominance police involved in the creation of what he calls a "social apartheid" in and out of these segregated areas, implies a submission to control the mass registration and the police harassment. This book is interesting and innovative as it provides a summary of various aspects of police treatment of the working classes perceived - as always - as dangerous. For cons, the style is sometimes a little difficult, alternating passages rather simple and personal with others more complex sociological jargon. However, all is understandable. A good read.
