Friday night saw a disgusting event take place in Hillsborough (United Kingdom) between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United. A Leads United supporter made his way on to the pitch and attacked Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper, Chris Kirkland. This behavior is horrible and needs to be stopped.
I don't know what can be done to stop fans in England from acting like barbarians. I know that these idiots don't represent all the fans but it's the few that give all fans a bad name. Obviously it's almost impossible to change the culture of these maniacs. They must feel it's their right to take part in criminal activity while watching a soccer event or as they say a football match.
We've heard too often of these types of incidents. Usually the goons attack themselves and not the players. Obviously the fan that attacked Kirkland thought it was a good idea to take things to a new and ridiculous level. Players need to feel safe on the pitch.
I'm not sure if that punk was drunk. Adding alcohol to idiots just makes the dummy more violent and erratic. As I said, I'm not sure what can be done to prevent this from happening again. I do know that fans need to be prevented from entering the pitch.
Maybe riot police need to be employed and armed with automatic rifles. Issue statements prior to matches, that if a person attempts to enter the field of play, they will be shot like wild animals. Sounds harsh? They are wild animals and deserve to be hunted down prior to attempting to inflict harm on the players that are on the filed of play.
I'm convinced that these animals aren't really fans. I believe that they are criminals who attend matches for the sole purpose of acting like wild boars and causing chaos. It's time for British society to clamp down on these goons. Very harsh penalties need to be enacted to try and curb this behavior.
I believe that any act of hooliganism needs to met with a 30 years to life in prison sentence if convicted. I don't care how serious or minor the incident was. We need to get these morons off the street. They are a disgrace to society and at the very least we need to lock them up for a long, long time.
I have absolutely no patience for this behavior. It should not be tolerated or accepted by anyone. We need to send these losers a message. Their loser behavior will not be tolerated anymore. We need to let them know that if they continue with this idiotic nonsense, they will be locked away for a long time.
