Paris Mayor on Kim Kardashian Armed Robbery


Paris Mayor on Kim Kardashian Armed Robbery: "The Streets Are Protected".

"I have every confidence in the police to quickly identify and apprehend the perpetrators," adds Anne Hidalgo after criticism from a political opponent.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo on Monday spoke out about security in Paris amid global coverage of news that Kim Kardashian's had been held at gunpoint and robbed in the French capital.

Hidalgo noted that the incident "occurred in a private space" and was not a reflection on safety in the city during Fashion Week.

"It in no way affects the safety of Parisian public spaces … the streets are protected," she said in a statement, citing the successful "Nuit Blanche" party that took place citywide Saturday night without incident.

"I have every confidence in the police to quickly identify and apprehend the perpetrators," Hidalgo added.

Her comments followed an interview from her former opponent Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet and member of Nicolas Sarkozy's Les Republicains party, which has taken a hard line on security. In an interview,  she had said that the robbery showed a "the municipality's lack or reaction to deal with new threats."

NKM, as she's known in French political circles, also expressed concern for Kardashian and the impact on Paris tourism. "My thoughts are with Kim because what happened to her is violent and traumatic," Kosciusko-Morizet said. "And I'm also concerned about the image of Paris."

She said the city has invested hundreds of thousands of euros on a tourism campaign that won't be able to make up for all the negative headlines following the Kardashian robbery. "All these advertisements are canceled by what happened to Kim Kardashian," she concluded.

Tourism to Paris has been down about 6.4 percent over the summer, according to the regional tourism board, following the terrorist attacks in January and November of last year.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
