    Really sad events. Well, let me try to explain the situation...

    Acts of Hooligans are taken very seriously in the Europe and much more seriously in Italy. Due to a (recent) past of deaths in clashes of football supporters, the police - and the agencies of intelligence specialized in hooligans - does not measure efforts to repress violent acts and sometimes are accused of abuses.

    In that particular case, a juncture of incidents finished culminating in this mess. Everything began when a Lazio supporter, Gabriele Sandri ACCIDENTALLY was shot by a police that tried to separate a clash between supporters of Lazio and Juventus in a checkpoint of the highway of Toscana (Remembering that the supporters of Lazio were going to Milan 'cus Lazio would play against Internazionale; nothing to do with Juve).

    After this incident, the news of his death spreaded and 3 games were suspended - Inter vs. Lazio, Atalanta vs. Milan and Rome vs. Cagliari - and the other games were late in 10 minutes due the portests of sppporters against the police. They began to face the police even in games that were in course, trying to invade the pitch and so on...

    Finally, this tragic accident culminated in a series violent events in protest against the police. The "good behavior" from the football supporters in Italy is charged a lot by the police and authorities. Im a Lazio fan myself, and in my opinion this accidental death of Gabriele finished being a fuse for the supporters to turn the table against the police.

    Cheers and thanks for the daily pics guys!
