French Police Sniper - ND's a round off at Hollande speech

French Police Sniper shoots two in error

The President is incredibly calm after the round goes off. Wouldn't the protection detail rush him off the stage until they figured out what was going on?

No, he dumped off a round into the VIP tent into a waiters leg which went into another patron.

It was incredible to see the rapid and decisive response by his protection detail. In fact, it was so rapid, I could not see it :)

That's because you don't have the extra special inter-dimensional glasses.

Wow, Gunshot near the president and not one reaction that can be seen on video.
I guess they want to give someone multiple attempts or hate the guy or something...

Couple French tourists told me their last election was like ours; many were voting against rather than for a particular candidate. They have a petition going to import a president.

"The marksman is based with a special protection unit in nearby Poitiers, officials said."

Probably more like:

"The marksman WAS based with a special protection unit in nearby Poitiers, officials said."

No doubt the sniper immediately surrendered to the nearest German.
