France: Police throw down handcuffs in Arc de Triomphe protest

French policemen were seen rallying in front of Arc de Triomphe in Paris, Saturday. Dozens of police cars were parked at the site, with policemen lining up and throwing handcuffs and police ribbons on the ground. Police protested against the new measures imposed by the government in a bid to improve ethics in the police forces after the death of George Floyd in the US. Following protests against racism and police brutality, Interior Minister, Christophe Castaner announced that chokeholds would be banned and no longer be taught in police training. Protests sparked by Floyd's death have been taking place across the US and around the world, after the 46-year-old black man was killed during his arrest in Minneapolis on May 25.
