Samuel Paty had shown pupils caricatures of the prophet Muhammad during a class on freedom of expression

A French court has convicted six teenagers in connection with the 2020 beheading of history teacher Samuel Paty, whose murder shocked the country.

Paty was killed outside his school in 2020 after showing his class cartoons of the prophet Muhammad during a debate on free expression. The attacker, a young Chechen who had been radicalised, was killed by police.

The court on Friday found five of the defendants, who were 14 and 15 at the time of the attack, guilty of staking out the teacher and identifying him to the attacker. Another defendant, 13 at the time, was found guilty of lying about the classroom debate in a comment that aggravated online anger against the teacher.

      “Mom, can we have a religion of peace?”

      No! We already have a religion of peace at home.

      The religion of peace

    The teenagers — all students at Paty’s school — testified that they didn’t know the teacher would be killed. All were handed brief or suspended prison terms, and required to stay in school or jobs during the duration of their suspended terms with regular medical checkups.

    I thought appeasement was supposed to bring us peace in our time. Here is the images that were worth murdering over.

    If these people want sariah so bad, they shouldn’t get 6 months but rather assistance to get citizenship and then a one way ticket to the country of their choosing.

      Or a child. That’s why its so important (from a religious zealot’s pov) to introduce and hammer it into children. Get the fear in them before the ability to think arrives then fortify it so that thoughts are seen as lacking faith.

      Then they have a believer for life, afraid to question. Just as they like it. That fear (of which the owner is largely unaware) then manifests into denial, anger, and occasionally violence upon the introduction of new ideas. The word for those new and unwelcome ideas being “blasphemy”.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    A French court has convicted six teenagers in connection with the 2020 beheading of history teacher Samuel Paty, whose murder shocked the country.

    Another defendant, 13 at the time, was found guilty of lying about the classroom debate in a comment that aggravated online anger against the teacher.

    Paty’s name was disclosed on social media after a class debate on freedom of expression during which he showed caricatures of the prophet that had been published by Charlie Hebdo, which had triggered a deadly extremist massacre in the satirical newspaper’s newsroom in 2015.

    Paty, a history and geography teacher, was killed on 16 October 2020, near his school in a Paris suburb by Abdoullakh Anzorov.

    The sixth defendant wrongly claimed that Paty had asked Muslim students to raise their hands and leave the classroom before he showed the class the prophet cartoons.

    The trial was held behind closed doors, and the media are not allowed to disclose the defendants’ identities according to French law regarding minors.
