To great ills, great means. This Thursday morning in Toulouse, on day 10 of the great confinement due to
coronavirus, the municipal and national police have jointly carried out a vast control of the residents on the go around the neighborhood
Arnaud-Bernard, in the city center. Pedestrians, cyclists, bus passengers, motorists, some 300 people were asked to file their famous waiver. Only the Ministry of the Interior reports on the number of reports, but according to our sources, around 30 minutes at 135 euros were distributed. Especially to those who had no documents and live so confined that they apparently didn’t know they needed one.

Mobilized in all the districts of #Toulouse to enforce confinement, the national police officers proceeded to verbalize the Izards and the Mirail, where they arrested two recalcitrants for contempt, rebellion and violence. pic.twitter.com/SWs8EEVuLM

The departmental directorate of public security (DDSP) indicates that checks of this type are carried out day and night, in the metro and throughout the metropolitan area. Some inevitably turn sour. Tuesday evening, the Mirail specialized field brigade (BST) intercepted two young people, 19 and 23, on scooters in the Fourguette district. Without helmet and without derogation. They insulted the police and attempted to beat them. They ended up confined in police custody.
The same evening in Tournefeuille, a man managed to be fined twice in two days. For him, the pain increased to 1,500 euros.
