In France, an investigation into the abuse of recruits

34
In France, the Ministry of Defense launched an investigation into bullying of young soldiers from the 35 infantry regiment stationed in Belfort. The video, in which the soldiers were severely beaten, scored 650 000 views on Twitter, and served as the official reason for starting the check.




Paris is at the center of a scandal over a possible case of bullying in the infantry units. On the frames that appeared on Twitter, three instructors beat recruits as part of a certain initiation ceremony. According to the publication BFM-TV, despite the fact that the video was published in the month of August, an investigation against its authors and participants was launched only the other day.

Presumably, the footage shows the recruits of the 35 infantry regiment, including women. Their instructors inflict hard blows, including blows with the edge of the palm of the hand on the neck, strong blows to the chest (the soldier flies through the room to the door in the video) or knees to the groin area.



After the viral spread on Twitter, the French Ministry of Defense said it would not tolerate "Of such behavior, from someone in relation to someone."

This case is known, recorded, the perpetrators punished.

- emphasized the department.

Single case?


The regiment commander, Colonel Ogier, told the L'Est Républicain newspaper that an internal investigation was launched as soon as the unit’s management received information about the incident. According to him, this is not about intimidation, but about one unorganized fact arising from an incorrect interpretation of official duties.

The official graduation took place at Ballon d'Alsace, but 25 young people wanted a more courageous ceremony. They talked with their sergeants, who made this erroneous decision about a “tough” initiation.

- explained Ogier.

According to the colonel, the punishment for the three participants in the beatings and the operator "will be exemplary in order to prevent the repetition of this in the future."

    Well, of course, a one-time tongue And they came up with traditions right off the bat, and techniques for "breaking through" the emblems? As all the same, any bosses are monotonous in their excuses. The stupidity is international ...

This is chaos. And here it is ... routine, traditions. True, my hand would not rise against a girl. winked

            Lived! In France, black African "French" instructors enjoy beating white French recruits with pleasure !!! They beat him prudently right in the groin, so that the white Frenchman, then, would not have offspring, and in general, so that he would not be lucky with women later.
            At the same time, the military authorities of France say that this is now just a "tradition" in the French army !!!

          In the training, the officers punched us into the "chest", they chose who in which company and the set on edge "plywood is ready for inspection" and initiation into the "scoops" all these "rests and deer", it was a routine, but that 57 from officers, torture and mockery.
          PS.
          The blow was not in the groin but in the chest.

        Unfortunately, unfortunately, it still happens.
        When the "cattle" get lost in a flock, the brains are turned off completely! If the command does not take effective measures to correct behavior in time, and most often to eradicate the cause / "hotbed" of tension / troubles, expect trouble.
        So it was, is and will be .... a person is not perfect and he should not be allowed to slide into the state of "cattle".

          Most cattle come to the army, not become. As in all other places.

            Differently. Someone is ready .... not a person already, someone is becoming gradual, depending on the circumstances.
            EVERYONE has a choice how to become! There are NO extenuating circumstances.

              But why? There are emollients. If there are only cattle around, there is no choice but to become the same cattle or die a martyr. This topic is always presented as sociological, but I think that this topic is biological. Evolution from a monkey into a person is not finished, it has just begun, so everything that we attribute in our society to social interaction, in any case, in the absence of a framework, always comes down to the behavior of chimpanzees.

    Come on, this is garbage ... Won Matt Kennard wrote a whole book - “Irregular army: how the American military took neo-Nazis, members of gangs and criminals to the war on terror”. There are examples of dohren. The FBI arrives to investigate the murder of some moron in the military unit in Germany; as a result, it turns out that he was beaten by accident, when he was initiated into a black gang, and only about 10% of the base were active gang members.
    And this on video - garbage on vegetable oil

    25 young people wanted a more courageous ceremony.
    Of course, you cannot forbid lying in your defense, but not to the same extent. 25 people They themselves asked to be thoroughly shaken off while insulting. And why not conduct a demonstrative "shooting" to realize masculinity?

    It’s just so tough, it grabbed one plop and not more than that, and yes, it’s necessary to root this out.

    And hto there will figure out what is going on in the minds of the guardians. The Sumerians, in general, prescribed shovels in the anus with the handle of a shovel in the Natsik, and nothing ... In the video, everything is very voluntary, a neophyte in a knee-elbow position with a sapper shovel sticking out of his butt grunts very happily: "Glory to heroes!"

    The army is not a kindergarten ..
    Remember when the collapse of the USSR began? It was from the Army, in all captured "our media" such a howl was a terrible and even "committee of soldiers' mothers" whose "most important bitches" were sponsored by the Soros Foundation.?

      There was a howl or not, but the MO order to abolish hazing in the army did not follow. lol
      As our NS said, nobody has canceled bullying in the army and is not going to cancel, so, youth, do not whine, and 3 young lieutenants from each unit are at the disposal of the commandant ....
      Hazing is different. There is lawlessness with which it is necessary to fight mercilessly, and there are military traditions unchanged throughout the entire existence of the Army.

    I do not believe. Hazing is a purely domestic phenomenon, in the West it is, in principle, excluded.
