When I was in France about 4 years we found a man who was severely beaten in nearby park at 8 am. There was a police station nearby and we went there to get him help. Speaking in French, I told the policeman about the man, his injuries and where to find him. He stared bankly at me. I started to repeat it again. He stopped me and said I understand you, I just don’t know what you want me to do about it and told me to go away. They have lost their humanity.
