France has more Muslim terrorist suspects than police available to monitor them

The simple answer is to round them all up and put them in concentration camps -- Russia has plenty of available space in Siberia to put them in and would be willing to help.

One of the terrorists who stormed a historic Normandy church Tuesday and forced an 85-year-old priest to kneel before slitting his throat, was a known terror suspect and even wore an electronic tracking device.

French police reportedly likely placed the suspect on the country’s “S-list,” which includes suspects considered radicalized and subject to surveillance. The suspects inclusion on the list underscores the enormity of the challenge facing French counter-terrorism police. The French Center for the Analysis of Terrorism revealed in late June that France had 10,000 active terror suspects and only 5,000 police available to surveil them.

Worse, French anti-terror agents can only surveil 250 of the 10,000 suspects at any one time, because 24-hour surveillance requires twenty agents per suspect. French TV reported that the attacker who was on the watch list, previously tried to get to Syria, but was turned back over to French authorities by Turkish authorities. France reportedly released him in March.
