Latest update : 2011-10-05

What makes good cops go bad?

In today's French papers, just how did one of the country's most respected "supercops" cross the line and get involved in drug trafficking? Also, the psychology of running a country in crisis, and the Sorbonne under fire - over its subsidiary in Abu Dhabi.

La Croix looks at the psychology of running a country in financial crisis - just how are George Papandreou, Jose Luis Zapatero and Nicolas Sarkozy holding it together?

Liberation looks at what made Lyon supercop Michel Neyret cross the line and turn to drug trafficking - do top policemen come to believe they are above the law?

And Rue 89 doesn't make the Sorbonne look good - saying they've covered up human rights abuses suffered by professors at their subsidiary in Abu Dhabi.
