Soccer fans all over Italy are still feeling the after effects of the riots that ensued after a soccer match in Catania, Sicily a few weeks ago. Chaos broke out after a group of enraged hooligans ravaged through the streets of Catania, assaulting police and causing considerable damage to the city. The rioting ended with the tragic death of a police officer, Filippo Raciti, at the hands of hooligans. Consequently, Italian authorities suspended all Italian Championship League matches for about one week. Emergency meetings ensued between soccer clubs and governmental officials on how to respond to the shockingly violent behaviour displayed by the Catanese hooligans.
