En Marche presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron slammed Marine Le Pen's proposal to arrest radical Islamists saying it would be counter-productive to intelligence efforts.
Mr Macron took direct exception to Le Pen's comments Friday morning when the Front National presidential candidate called for the arrest of all known radical Islamists and the deportation of Islamists without French citizenship Le Figaro reports. Le Pen made the comments after reports that the shooter of three police in Paris Thursday night had been known to police as an Islamic extremist.
"The goal is an intelligence goal," Macron said. "If you put them all in jail, first of all, it is not in accordance with the law," he added, "The goal is to follow them. The police must be able to work in the best possible way."
