All in the Line of Duty
How many Frenchmen does it take to change a lightbulb? Honestly, I have no idea. But I can tell you that if a police car breaks down, it takes two other police cars plus two jeeps full of army dudes like these strapping young fellows to arrange for a tow truck. I trust that there was not a serious security or criminal incident elsewhere while they were thus occupied. You actually see jeeps like this cruising the streets of Paris fairly frequently; I'm not exactly sure what their mission is.
