Stuttgart Erupts in Soccer Violence

Stuttgart Germany is the home of both Porsche and Mercedes Benz Chrysler (Daimler-Chrysler-whatever); FOX News just showed live video of a stand-off between German and British soccer fans in downtown Stuttgart. Apparently a scuffle broke out between the fans after the German victory over Sweden that sent them to the quarter-finals. The story linked to below describes drunken British soccer fans (repetitive) throwing beer bottles at passerby from a bar balcony; that shows real class. That scuffle turned into what FOX described as a very violent confrontation until the riot police showed up. The video is pretty funny; it shows the English fans taunting the German fans from behind a line of riot police; that shows real bravery.

An early story here.
