forza roma

Naturally, the Manchester United fans are angry at the Roma police response:

Some witnesses inside the ground spoke of terrified women and children running away from the police during one baton charge, while a disabled man was reportedly knocked out of his wheelchair...

Rome's head of police, Achille Serra, insisted the police action was a "justified response", and said there would be no inquiry unless he were shown evidence of any alleged police brutality.

Italian Football Federation president Giancarlo Abete backed Mr Serra's comments: "The English press speak of heavy handed police? We owe gratitude to our law enforcers.

"I don't believe those who try to make games safe can be crucified in this manner."

Yes, Mr. Abete. Don't crucify the cops. They were just doing their job.

Speaking of crucifixion, today just happens to be Good Friday! Perhaps Pope Benedict instructed the Roma Polizia to give it to the Manchunians. The Romans have a knack for violence.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
