Wolli, you are perhaps the only person in the Western hemisphere not to carry a mobile phone.

Many mobile phones in the Western hemisphere do not have a useful video function or NONE. And most people do not react swiftly enough. The swift reaction of the person in question is extraordinary and simply not the usual thing. Lots of people might have been ready 5 minutes later, but ONLY ONE was ready when it counted.

When I was a little boy I went to school by train, & they were usually very crowded. One morning a woman told me "Don't open this door or I will fall out," I thought she was bluffing & I opened the door, and she fell out onto the platform. It wasn't racist, it was stupidity.

In Paris the black guy could have waited for the next train, and even walked to the back of the train where there is usually more room. Epic fail.
talking of "Epic Fails"

Some soccer fans are racist? Really? Wow, that's news?
The news is not that some soccer fans are racist, but that people now do something about it, incl. the justice system.
You're right on the core issue: nazi salute is nothing new in parisian stadiums, can be seen every week. But if this incident is really the start of a serious reaction of both public and justice, that's huge news.

Re: Chelsea fans in Paris Metro racist incident.

Five of the people involved have been summoned to appear before a magistrates court in London. Will be interesting to see how they can be tried for a crime committed abroad.
