    It wasn't "violence" it was what happens when a crowd starts moving and the momentum is greater than the ability of individuals in the crowd to keep up.

    Are you sure that you were really a cop?

    Shouldn't you know about this kind of stuff?

    Hitler's invasion of Poland wasn't violent, the lazy people didn't get out of the way of the tanks.

    And we see riots and violence at the Olympics every four years. :rolleyes:

    A MENSA IQ is a terrible thing to waste.

    In typical billwald fashion you now wish to qualify "sports" to "pro sports" when you run into a bump in the road. :rolleyes:

    Little league parents can be as nasty as pro sport fans.

    Perhaps because in Eqypt soccer clubs are more about politics than soccer.

    This was not a riot over a soccer game.

    This was an extension of the Arab Spring.

    There is quite a bit of analysis and explanation on the web if you look for it.

    Backtracking on your professional sports qualification?

    Why do you always find yourself changing and requalifying your silly insipid positions?

    As I said before: Be content with merely embarassing yourself and stop insisting on digging yourself deeper.
