Some people need to grow up...

Just saw this on the 20 min web-site: http://www.20min.ch/ro/news/insolite...meute-31736418

Basically a bunch of ****-***** decided to go on the rampage after a hockey match. In this particular instance, a group of women tried to protect their car, while around them a mob tries to wreck it. All cowards the lot of them*.

I just can't get my head around this kind of moronic behaviour.

If those were my children, I would be taking them to the police myself and asking them to prosecute with full force.

*EDIT: Well except the women, obviously - figurative balls of steel and all that...

Re: Some people need to grow up...

That whole mess is so depressing. All over a hockey game (yeah, alright THE hockey game). I guess even the even tempered mild mannered Canadians aren't immune to mob mentality.

Nobody is.

That's what's so depressing.

We're all just a bunch of monkeys, really.

Re: Some people need to grow up...

P.S. Can you start reading the German version of 20 Minuten?

Too much French brings back bad memories.

Stupid.
Ignorant.
Idiots.
Too much free time & destructive tendencies.

A shame that people can be like this.

Fab picture of the couple smooching in the middle of the whole episode.

That's not something you'd expect to see in a town punch up.

Re: Some people need to grow up...

This seems to happen in a lot of North American sports? Even if a team wins, their fans seem intent on trashing the town. I know we Brits have (had?) a bad hooligan problem, but they tend to fight each other and it rarely spills out to affect others (exceptions have occurred obviously). I've never once heard of Man Utd, Chelsea or Liverpool* fans rampaging after winning, or losing, a major title.



*Not that we've won much recently

No. Can't understand a word of that German malarkey...

But just to show what a nice guy I am: here you go.

I've seen a similar thing happening in US a year or two ago... If I was the owner of the car I would've kill them all...

That's how it starts.

Good point. German speakers have to pre-arrange a kiss.
