It looks like the French courts' response to Sarah Halimi's murder was fixed from the start

Not only does it look like the authorities in France don't want to recognize Sarah Halimi's murder as the result of indoctrinated anti-semitism, it's unclear if the Islamofascist who murdered her will stand trial either:
The French Jewish community is enraged at what seems to be a refusal of the court to try the Muslim who murdered Sarah Halimi Hy”d (May G-d avenge her blood) about two months ago.

Halimi, who was 66 at the time she was murdered, served as a teacher for many years at a Jewish school in Paris. A Muslim attacker stabbed her, then threw her from her third story apartment to her death.

The judges on the court asserted this week that the murderer’s lawyers had brought conclusive proof that he suffers from mental illness and was not thinking clearly when he committed the cruel murder; therefore, it is possible that he may even be released without going through legal proceedings. They said that it is possible that he didn’t even intend to kill her when he attacked her.

The Jewish community in France intends to appeal the decision when it is officially announced, and is demanding that the court relate to the act as murder with nationalistic intent and not as was asserted. A representative of Halimi’s family said that the act was a terror attack, and blamed police for trying to cover up the murder.
The way they handled the case was stunningly incompetent. Let's be perfectly clear: anybody who commits a violent murder has committed a most serious offense and has to take responsibility. They cannot just be allowed to walk free without punishment.
Yoel Margi, who heads “Consistoire,” which provides religious services to Jews in France, emphasized the fact that the suspect had shouted “Allahu Akbar” before pushing Halimi out of the window. “I refuse to accept the easy excuse of insanity for a murderer who tried to make the incident look like a suicide, before eyewitnesses powerless to act,” he said.

Neighbors told police that, late at night, the terrorist had climbed to the third floor of the apartment complex, shouted “Allahu Akbar,” and acted wildly before pushing Halimi to her death.
Which only proves what kind of education he was raised under. It should be noted that besides the poor approach to dealing with antisemitic hate crimes in the country, the courts also dealt leniently with Muslim rapists. In fact, one could say that antisemitism and misogyny go hand in glove.

A prominent intellectual is adding his voice to the list of those who want a spade called a spade:
Michel Onfray, a philosopher, told French newspaper Le Point that he rejected the account of Halimi’s murder depicting it as “not an antisemitic crime, not a crime committed by a Muslim fundamentalist.”

Onfray is one of fifteen leading intellectuals who signed a petition demanding that Halimi’s murder be investigated as an antisemitic crime. The petitioners – who also included the Jewish philosopher Alain Finkielkraut and the feminist theorist Elisabeth Badinter – pointed out that the murder took place at the height of France’s presidential campaign. They argued that the reluctance of the authorities to classify it as a hate crime committed by a Muslim was based on fear that doing so would boost the electoral fortunes of Marine Le Pen, the candidate of the far right National Front.
What's particularly stupefying about this is that even some Jewish reps at the time refused to speak up clearly about the case, because they too literally wanted to believe that the sins of her father fall upon the child in every way. Which makes them just as guilty. They almost fully took part in creating a moral panic, and neglected their duties.

Here's another voice speaking up:
A European Parliament member and prominent French intellectuals protested the omission of anti-Semitism from a draft indictment of a Muslim for the murder of his Jewish neighbor.

Frédérique Ries, a lawmaker from Belgium, on Thursday criticized French authorities’ handling of the investigation into the April 4 incident, in which Sarah Halimi was tortured and thrown out of her third-story apartment to her death, allegedly by Kobili Traore, who lived in her building.

“French authorities have treated her murder with icy silence,” Ries, who is Jewish, said in reference to the fact that Traore, who had no history of mental illness, was placed at a psychiatric institution and has not been charged with a hate crime despite evidence suggesting he killed Halimi because she was Jewish.

In a voice recording of the incident, Traore is heard shouting “Allahu akbar,” calling Sarah “Satan” and calmly praying after her killing, according to reports.
As I noted before, I'm sure the reaction was all fixed and pre-determined, by "lawmakers" who should all have their degrees revoked and be disbarred from ever practicing law again.
