Putin "Chant" lands 100 fans in Jail.

That is what my browser link told me, News Feed BBC extension on my browser.

Very provocative, so I click on it.

Lo and Behold just another piece of Western Slander Media. They simply won't rest till Putin is dead.

First off it happened in Belarus
Not Russia
It happened at a soccer game.
Judging from picture below only about 50 people were involved.
They sang a song about Ukraine Glory, these were obviously Western Ukrainians at a soccer game.
Were obviously looking for trouble as soccer hooligans usually do.
They were tiny minority, among Belarus Majority.

But if I was to believe my initial BBC news feed link on my browser. I would think Putin is putting down open dissent on mass, I would believe they are on the verge of civil war.

Well done Western Media, Well done.

The BBC link as it stands doesn't say that Putin was responsible for jailing them, or that it happened in Russia.
Did it say so before?

The headline seems accurate enough. The fact that they were soccer watchers is implied in the word "fans", in normal English journalistic usage.
Trust me, if the fans are "chanting" and landing in jail, that says "soccer" to any English reader. So this point was not being hidden.

Chanting fans ending in trouble means soccer to
everyone , I think that's a worldwide thing.

I don't mean to derail the thread, but it
begs a question that's been on my mind
for a while now. Soccer is HUGE in Africa,
everyone loves soccer, on what is probably
the continent that experiences more warfare
and random acts of violence than any other,
why are our soccer games so peaceful?

I mean, you might get robbed and assaulted
in the stadium, but that's Africa, that could
happen at church. Yet no riots or fan
on fan violence. Just always struck me as
odd.

Because you've already got other outlets for group violence?
And the teams don't coincide with local/ethnic divisions?
I'm extrapolating from the probable causes of soccer violence in England.

I'm afraid to say you're wrong, soccer, and all
sports teams in Africa generally tend to fall
across racial/geographic/religious lines,
just like everything else in Africa unfortunately.
(Think figuring out the Sunni /Shiite conflict
was complicated? Try living in a country
with ELEVEN official languages)

I'm trying but failing to make sense of the
lack of violence at our sporting events,
If you look at Mexico and other South American
countries you see all the same ingredients,
racial division and tension, historic grievances
and poor vs rich, etc. etc., and those games
erupt in violence with people firing at eachother.
Here, everyone's armed to the teeth and has a
massive chip on their shoulder whatever their
race, but still no riots. It confuses me.

But anyway, I haven't read the article, but yes,
the BBC is biased and has been
reporting both the conflicts in Ukraine and Libya,
Syria, Yemen, Somalia , Nigeria , Kenya and the Congo
in a wildly irresponsible manner that has probably done
more to cause violence than actually report truth
or resolve conflicts. The words that come to mind are
'sh*t stirrers'

Nevertheless, the story did justify the quoted headline.
There was a "Putin" chant (a chant about Putin) and it landed people in jail.
The OP was objecting to inferences which he had read into the headline, which were not there.
