Exactly what did the boys do?

A few days ago I saw Romanian gypsies fleeing police on the Champs and adjacent streets. Two had been arrested. They were more anxious than usual to escape the police because in this case the French police were seconded by officers of the Romanian police, thus making it far more difficult for the gypsies to escape arrest by pleading a different nationality, inability to communicate, etc.

My daughter and a friend were in Paris this past week. Had a generally great experience except for all the scammers that approached them around most of the popular sights. Immigration is and has been out of control in Europe. Expect to see hustlers selling junk in every city you travel to inside of EU. Purses and plastic Eiffel towers abound! Mostly African immigrants... Where from nobody knows. Senegal, Nigeria...Northern Africa ... Just an insane number of unskilled and desperate people who are ruining beautiful landscapes with JUNK!
