N.Ireland soccer mob beats Catholic man to death

Quote:
"Militant Protestant supporters of a Scottish soccer team beat to death a Roman Catholic man in the latest sign of how sports rivalries inspire sectarian bloodshed in Northern Ireland, police and politicians said Monday.

Witnesses said more than 20 Protestant supporters of Glasgow Rangers, many of them wearing the team's blue-and-white jerseys and scarves, drove into a Catholic district of the town of Coleraine after Rangers clinched the Scottish Premier League championship Sunday.

Billy Leonard, a former policeman and politician from the Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein, said several carloads of anti-Catholic extremists came armed with clubs "and literally attacked the first person they came across."

Kevin McDaid, 49, was fatally bludgeoned while his wife, Evelyn, and a 46-year-old Catholic neighbor, Damien Fleming, were both injured. Fleming was reported in critical condition."

I find 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' to be a lyrically and conceptually simplistic response to 'the Troubles', 'Please' is better and was indeed going through my head earlier, but not necessarily due to this.

Soccer does seem to attract the worst elements though.

That's probably just it, people will do something in a group they might not consider on their own.
