OOPS! :-)

Paris (AFP) - A French police officer shot and injured a man who attacked him with a hammer outside Paris's Notre-Dame cathedral on Tuesday, authorities said.

Police sealed off the area in front of the cathedral, where the attacker lay injured on the ground.

The attack comes with France on high alert for more jihadist strikes after a weekend attack in London, where extremists used a van and knives to crush to death and kill seven people, one of them French.

Authorities in Paris asked the public to stay away from Notre-Dame, one of France's biggest tourist attractions situated on the banks of the Seine river in the heart of the capital.

French TV reported scenes of panic during the shooting, with tourists scrambling for cover.

France is under a state of emergency and on its highest possible level of alert following a string of terror attacks that began in 2015, which have killed over 230 people.

In the last fatal attack, a policeman was shot and killed on Paris's prestigious Champs-Elysees avenue on April 20, three days before the first round of the presidential election.

Major attacks in France targeted the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in January 2015 and in November that year, gunmen and suicide bombers attacked sites around Paris including the Bataclan concert hall, killing 130 people.

Then in July last year, a radicalised Tunisian man drove a lorry at high speed through a Bastille Day fireworks display on the Nice waterfront, massacring 86 people.

Since then there have been a series of smaller attacks, often targeting security forces.

:-) Yes indeed. Trump and those ignorant Paris Firefighters are "idiots" to even consider other options after the fire had burned for 2 & 1/2 hours before putting any water to it.
PLUS - TRUMPS TWEETS ARE HURTFUL!!!!

His tweet was fine. You idiots jumping on a perfectly fine tweet in a pathetic attempt to score a political point, while one of the great buildings of the world is burning to the ground, should be a wake up call for you about just how far over the edge of sanity you've gone.

Sadly, you'll learn nothing, and you'll be just as stupid about the next thing, whatever that may be.

We should really focus on something that happens every day and not the destruction of an architectural marvel.

Don't lose focus. Even this is a political football.
No, the real story is a (probably accidental) fire destroying something so beautiful and all of us watching, powerless to stop it. Something that stood for 800 years, through two world wars and countless more.

Trump saying something stupid is an afterthought, but maybe you should direct your anger at him instead of tone-policing people's reactions to him.

So 52 acres of forest to build reduced to charcoal in about 4 hours.

Your defense of Donald Trump and his dumbshit tweets is hilarious, has always been hilarious and will always be hilarious. Don't try to throw the importance of Notre Dame into your justification of defending that schmuck. Look to the POTUS for a reference regarding going over the edge of sanity.

Most of that "Forest" you write about was nearly 900 years old.......so there's that.

I don't get why Trump's tweet distracted so many of you. It's innocuous and it's trivial by comparison to the fire.

It's stupid and the leader of the free world should know better.

Although the sight of air tankers, referred to disparagingly as ‘CNN drops’ by fire officials, “swooping toward a wildfire”can be reassuring, it is sometimes “a needless and expensive exercise to appease politicians”.

Fire commanders say they are often pressured to order planes and helicopters into action on major fires even when the aircraft won’t do any good. Such pressure has resulted in needless and costly air operations, experienced fire managers said in interviews.

The reason for the interference, they say, is that aerial drops of water and retardant make good television. They’re a highly visible way for political leaders to show they’re doing everything possible to quell a wildfire, even if it entails overriding the judgment of incident commanders on the ground.

Firefighters have developed their own vernacular for such spectacles. They call them “CNN drops.”

“A lot of people do a lot of things for publicity and for politics that don’t need to be done,” said Jim Ziobro, fire aviation chief for the Oregon Department of Forestry.

Most of us know by now that he's not an expert on many of the things he comments on and he doesn't have a panel of experts driving his twitter account. We aren't caught off guard when he says something that turns out to be wrong and we don't assume that because he says it it's right. Try that, maybe.
