Default Mexicans Take To Streets In Huntington Park After Soccer Triumph

Mexican loyalists take over Huntington Park area after soccer win over France

Mexico beats France in soccer game, and an American city picks up the tab for the celebration

Quote:
Huntington Park, home to a large Latino population, has a history of disturbances after Mexico's World Cup play.

In November 2001, unruly fans celebrating Mexico's victory over Honduras in World Cup qualifying tossed rocks and bottles and smashed windows after about 1,000 people streamed into the central business district. Officers fired stingballs to disperse the crowd.

Fans waving flags poured onto Pacific Boulevard, which law enforcement had shut down as a precaution during the second half of the game. Officers in riot gear stood guard in case the crowd got unruly.

What flags do you suppose these were?

In Whittier they did the same thing after the Laker first win in the simi finals. They can't wait to hit those streets.
Seems to be only in LA County.

Hitting the streets and looting, etc., is a MExican cultural thing and it doesn't even have to be a basket ball game. In 1968 Mexicans walked out of So Cal schools to protest low academic performance, etc. Most of us would work harder to improve academic performance, but what do we know?

This is just like illegal immigration itself. Don't confuse the high visibility of Mexicans with the basic problem itself.

The truth is that sports fans are vermin. Soccer fans all over the world are rioting scum. International meets are an international police burden. And football and basketball fans here in the US are just as bad.

Push them all of a cliff and the world would be a happier place.

Quite a broad brush you are painting with there Twoller

There are lots, and actually the greatest number of sports fans do not participate in behavior like this. I don't see how alienating them would help our cause

You would be forced to agree, however, that it is not just Mexicans in the US that are the problem.

In the World Cup being held in South Africa, some Argentinian fans were deported as being a public menace. The travel of fans is a constant burden on countries who must keep track of their comings and goings. Does a month go by without there being some kind of soccer riot or stampede somewhere on the planet? How about a week? And no matter how violent it gets, it never keeps anyone away from the games. And if it's not the people in the stands, it's the guys with the ball. Everything is always on the edge of fanaticism. And for what? For nothing, a couple a guys chasing some ball around a field.

Default The title says it all and the comment section was removed fast as hell!

We had the same problem in MA with illegal Brazilians blocking off streets and hurting our town.


Brazilian soccer fans show their colors downtown

FRAMINGHAM —

With green-and-yellow jerseys and Brazilian flags wrapped around their shoulders, soccer fans packed every table Tuesday at Cafe Belo on Waverley Street.

Probably few, if any, of the 150 or so patrons expected Brazil's Cup-opening match against North Korea to be a difficult one for the defending champions, projected on a large screen and broadcast in Portuguese. Still, they cheered each Brazil goal like it was a tiebreaker.

Many Brazilian fans probably reacted the same way around the world, said Miria Slavero, a waitress and bartender at Cafe Belo.

"In Brazil, everybody plays soccer, just for fun," she said. "Everybody's excited. Everybody loves this."

In Brazilian shops and restaurants in downtown Framingham, signs of excitement were all around for the 32-team global soccer competition playing out in South Africa.

The television at Padaria Brasil Bakery on Concord Street is tuned to non-stop coverage of the World Cup. Brazilian team jerseys hang in some downtown boutique windows.

At the Brazil Legal World Soccer shop across the street from the Memorial Building, owner Robson Ramos said he usually sells 10 or 15 Brazilian soccer team jerseys a week. Since the World Cup started, he's been moving almost double that.

Think the Super Bowl, times 10. That's how more than one Brazilian soccer fan described the feeling about the World Cup, which is played every four years.

"For American people, there's the Red Sox - baseball," Ramos said. "For Brazilians, there's soccer."

Some fans said they'd heard of couples who avoided scheduling their weddings during key games.

In one extreme case, Elias Fernandes, owner of the Padaria Brasil bakeries, said he saw a Brazilian news story about a man who convinced his pregnant wife to have her doctor induce labor a week early so he could fly to South Africa without missing the birth.

"Baseball and football is big in the U.S.," he said. "Soccer is big in the whole world."

Happy fans spilled into the streets Tuesday after Brazil defeated North Korea 2-1, cheering, honking horns and playing music.

But that was nothing compared to the way people celebrate in Brazil, Delmir Belo said as he waited for an order at Padaria Brasil. Everything shuts down, he said.

"You can have no traffic, no privacy," said Belo, who prefers to avoid the crowds. He got out of work early Tuesday to take in the game at home. "Everybody's watching the game."

Some fans said they felt Brazil's victory over North Korea was a little too close for comfort. At Padaria Brasil on Irving Street, Fernandes said the team seemed like it wasn't ready to play yet.

Brazil takes on Ivory Coast on Sunday, and then it's Portugal next Friday morning.

Businesspeople are prepared for those upcoming games.

At Cafe Belo, manager Ben Potter said he plans to hire security to work with the crowd, although he had no problems on Tuesday.

"It was a good crowd, not one bit of trouble," he said. "You couldn't have asked for a better night."
