French Cops Want Their Wine

French riot police threaten to strike over alcohol ban - Telegraph Oh the difference a continent makes when it comes to alcohol consumption.
the French have traditionally been allowed 25cl of wine or a small beer with their main meal of the day.

It was normally served on an official tray and sometimes eaten in full view of the public, often outside riot-control vans.
Bon Appetit. (Or maybe that should be Bonne Chance.)

I just have a hard time picturing a riot-control cop, taking time out of his day to set up lunch next to the van, and have a glass of wine. I mean, if they are out in the van, and not back at the barn, doesn't that imply there is a "situation?"
