    In answer to mounting public criticism, most of the 21,000 police in Paris stopped work for an hour this morning (Thursday) and tried to convince the public they are not the arrogant, overbearing tyrants they have been made out to be.

    The police were filmed in the streets of the French capital as they handed out leaflets stating their case and talked to Parisians in an effort to persuade them that gendarmes are basically friendly.
