This was when Giovanni Trapattoni was in charge of Benfica. It was a european game against a team in Switzerland i believe and he was only in charge of Benfica for the 04-05 season so thats when it happened.

I don't think we can a draw any grand conclusions about anything from this video.

1 stupid but harmless fan + X number of stupid and not-stupid cops + X number of head shots from a cop's baton, multiply by a large number of juiced up soccer fans = 1 riot.

Reminds me of a saying: "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out"

But still relevant.

Yeah so the guy made a big no-no by running onto the field... I guess in France (?) that gets you a tonfa to the gut.

And we see what police brutality gets when it is brought into plain view.

Those cops were very lucky. They could have been torn limb from limb.

How arrogant or stupid must one be to cross the line in front of thousands of already volatile soccer hooligans?


So I guess the Socialism in France is just as unsocial.

Ok.
You are doing it wrong.

YEAH! power to the people!

No more will we take this bullying/opressive style of control!

Sadly, yes we will.

This video has been around since at least September '09, and the rough stuff keeps going on. People in the US at least just continue to stand by and watch...uploaded 9/27/09 by another user:

"Police can riot all they please"-- Quote from the song called "Riot," by the Dead Kennedys.

The ops video shows the utter power of a mob, which I find totally disgraceful.

Try that sort of tactic here in the United States, and you might get your head blown off; by the men in blue, which I think is justifiable homicide.

Thats my opinion, take it or leave it.

To be honest here, Soccer Fans are known for their violence. How many have died at Soccer games? Pot meet Kettle.

Any Cop at a Soccer game that is not nervous would be not to bright.

A better thread might be why do Soccer Fans act the way they do? Are they all brain damaged?

The Cop Hater crowd is growing a little to large here at ATS. I hate to see this tarnish all of us because of people who hate Cops because they have constant run ins with the law, unlike the vast majority of us who never have an issue with the law. Nobody is being fooled by this. You have constant problems with Cops, you do something to cause it. That much is apparent.

I was like that when I was young, stupid and full of hormones. I grew up. Some never do and that's why we need the Police; for those who never grow up and turn into thugs and criminals. Sad, but very true.


Come to think of it, there was some breuhaha in France when they were playing Algeria, and the Algerians were starting fires in town and such. Perhaps emotions were high around then.

Oops I see it was Portugal not France, Thats what I get for jumping to the end of the thread.

When it's posted in "Other current events", I think people should care.


And it's 7 years old, not four.

So for protecting your fellow citizen from assault constitutes a bullet to the head?
Moron.
Wish it was you on the floor getting pummelled and no one coming to your aid.

The guy jumped down onto the playing field, he trespassed and resisted the security.

Now I'm not condoning beating anyone, read my responses.

You're clearly baiting and trolling..................this is my last response to you and don't call my sanity filthy, that is disrespectful and judgemental.

You have some real anger management issues.

I think this happened in 2004, in Switzerland.

The guy that entered the field had a sign saying that the family was supporting the Portuguese referee, and the guys that restrained and hit him were from a private security company, not the police.


Finally somebody got that. Yeah, not cops. It's amazing how tired of poilice brutality we are, that we were almost celebrating. Anyway, imagine what could happen if one of those gorillas pull out a gun.

The man could have had a knife for all they knew or wanted to assault the soccer player he was running towards.
Considering that the man had a sign with some incentive to the referee, I don't think that any person (police or private security) used to soccer matches would think that the man was thinking about attacking anyone.


Off-topic: Also @ whoever mentioned my name (can't remember who it was) It's a reference to "In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king." I was going to go with PuppetStrings but I think it was taken.
Have you read H. G. Wells' "The Country of the Blind"?

My mother in law dated the chief homicide detective in a major City for many years (retired/widowed) and as a cop he told us about the type of people he had to deal with.

Also, we have two lawyers, both are in criminal law...............I have second hand stories, let's take one of a man that poured a bottle of Jack Daniel's down his one year old daughter and than raped and killed her.

Want more stories...............you have no idea what police see.

I was in nursing for awhile and couldn't hack it emotionally, worked in ER and many of the cops what they had to deal with was unbelievable.

There are a lot of really very bad people out there...............and yes, I have encountered them.

Not saying all cops are angels and no body should be beating any body..........what about Bush allowing torture, what are your views on that?

We once saw out our living room window, a car pulled over and the cop had the guy open his trunk and brought out two rifles and some guns and boxes.............and we live in a nice suburb.

What cops now days have to face, you have no idea.

Most people are decent, but the ones cops come up against, I wouldn't be a cop if they offered me 100,000 a year with the idiots they have to deal with.

As one of the previous posters said. Two wrongs do not make a right. And all you you cheering the brutal beating of a fellow human being make me sick, and it is YOU that comprise the congealed scum of our populace.

The problem is how you define a "good citizen".

Some years ago, in Portugal, a good citizen was someone that did exactly what the government/priest/teacher/etc. said, without questioning the reasons, so if they said that some book should not be read that would mean that they were right and you shouldn't read that book. If you were caught with that (or any other book from a long list of forbidden books) book, you would, at least, be jailed and, if they found other "subversive" clues about you, you could end your days in prison.

If your family had any luck, they would know where you were moved to and, if it was not in an African colony, they could try to visit you.

That situation ended 37 years ago, and we do not want to get it back, so we are a little suspicious.

Typical left-leaning Euro trash responses in here. One of these days when one of you pinkos is getting mugged or raped in an alley, you'll wish these cops were there to lay down some lumber on the animals attacking you.

Here's a very easy formula to follow. It's even easy enough for an anti-establishment commie like you to decipher:

-Don't run from the cops and you won't get beaten.
-Don't run onto the field during a sporting event and you won't get beaten
-Don't try to beat up cops and you won't get beaten.

And the most important of all:

-Be a good citizen and you won't get beaten.


The point is nobody should get beaten under those circumstances. Two of those police just did away with the niceties, and got on with the beating. One of the two had already kicked the guy as he came up to him when the guy was already down, that would have been easily seen by the crowd. Unfortunately it was the bald policeman who told the two in question to back off, who got the worst beating when he fell, so yes the crowd were just as belligerent, even though they got the wrong man. The other two slimeball officers caused that officer, who tried to do a correct job, a lot of anguish. A policeman used to be part of the community, (in other words) lived and worked there. This is where things have gone so badly wrong where whole communities have no police force on hand, just a number to what amounts to a call centre. There is trouble and carloads of police arrive with basic info, and anyone is a potential troublemaker, and client for the baton. I'm a musician, and i've seen a lot of rubbish policing carried by these flying squads, and you know none of them by name. How things have changed for the worse from just a couple of decades or less.

Come to think of it, I believe it was Woodrow Wilson who started the laws on Sedition in the States. Jonah Goldberg states that Wilson was the first Fascist prez in the US.

Hmmm yep here it is on wiki
en.wikipedia.org...

The Sedition Act of 1918 was an Act of the United States Congress signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson on May 16, 1918.[1] It forbade the use of "disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language" about the United States government, its flag, or its armed forces or that caused others to view the American government or its institutions with contempt. The act also allowed the Postmaster General to refuse to deliver mail that met those same standards for punishable speech or opinion. It applied only to times "when the United States is in war."[2] It was repealed on December 13, 1920.[3]

As this happened in Portugal, my country, I decided to clarify a couple of things, although I think it is too late.

First of all, this happened more than 6 years ago, not recently as implied.

Secondly, they were not cops, they were private security officers. If they were cops they would be in deeep trouble, since it was a football game between the two most popular teams in Portugal, seen by millions.

Finally a coment. Portuguese people are known for being peacefull. We had a revolution in 74 and not a single person was killed. But we will not stand for brutality. And we will fight back.

Nowadays, the brutality is of another kind. It comes from the European Union, the IMF and the international finance cabal.

We will only take so much.

Then we will fight back.
