Protests have broken out in France in response to the murder of 17-year-old, Nahel. He was fatally shot in the chest, point-blank by the French police. Unsurprisingly, Muslims and other minority groups are repeatedly victims of police brutality. Outrage sparked on social media as news of the killing circulated on major news outlets.
