And to all the people soiling their own trousers about the word 'hooligan': Britain has a particular problem with violent football fans which is commonly referred to as 'hooliganism'. If you watched a news story about it then you'd hear that word being used.
I'm surprised local police forces havn't been given permits to treat football hooligans like pests and shoot them with rubber bullets yet. They wouldn't be so destructive and mouth when they're taken down a notch.
Yeah, it is surprising that no police force in the world has been given the permit to treat them as pests and such. It would certainly discourage a lot of potential hooligans from ever attempting anything, since rubber bullets are extremely painful to get hit by.
I doubt that. They won't stop being douchbags because they got whooped once. They come from a background where the behavior's ingrained in them. So they'd simply keep repeating it regardless of how many rubber bullets you cap them with.
You shoot them down, then you deal with them. I've been meaning to ask the government to build underground prisons for a while now...
Ha!three Americans in this thread so far not getting it.
Let me explain: The hooligan thing is very alive and real in many parts of Europe. The violence and vandalism are very current and real.
Most football (what you call soccer) matches are accompanied by a great police force, desperately trying to keep the groups from meeting. If some travel by train, there's often harassment of non-match related people and vandalism against anything near.
