I will not give in in the fight against delinquency and insecurity because security is the first of freedoms” reacted Jérémie Bréaud in a press release, specifying that he had lodged a complaint. And to add: "At a time when our country is a victim of the barbarism of radical Islam, where the values ​​of the Republic are flouted on a daily basis, I cannot accept such threats and remarks towards myself and towards all elected representatives of the Republic, security forces, firefighters, teachers or the medical profession as a whole ”.
