In case of Le Pen winning the elections, I'm much more worried by the people who would like to demonstrate aqgainst the result, because it would surely lead to a police repression with some deaths (police is very pro Le Pen in France). And people agaisnt Le Pen are still quite numerous (something around 60% who thinks she is unfit for power)

As for the police being right-wing : it's not as simple as that (though a majority of uniformed cops certainly are). But not strictly relevant : in my observation, the police hierarchy obey the minister of the Interior (not the President).
