Police in Germany organized a soccer match to promote its anti-hooliganism stance, and in a million years you'll never guess how it ended.

A football match organised to promote non violence among fans in Germany ended in a mass punch-up.  Five fans were arrested at the game which was staged in Aachen as part of a police campaign against hooliganism.  The violence started when five young players attacked a heckler who was kicked and punched to the ground, and then other players and fans waded in.

Shocking, I know.  But this is further proof that nothing spices up a boring peace protest like violence.  I happen to prefer hippies getting beaten with nightsticks, but I guess a soccer brawl is okay, too.  As long as some bottles were thrown.  Tell me someone got hit with a bottle.
