There are terrible pictures of the second league duel between Hansa Rostock and FC St. Pauli. Pyrotechnics, escalating fan violence, threesful policemen. There is little left of an attractive football game. Instead, fans report after the game of utter escalation, fear and anger.
The background: During the duel between Hansa Rostock and the FC St. Pauli escalated the situation. Fans of both teams had gathered behind the southern curve of the Baltic Sea Stadium and proved each other with pyrotechnics. The police attacked and urged the rioters back to their stadium ranges.
In the stadium of Hansa Rostock is the Ultras block right next to the guest block. This evening of a risk game escalated quickly.
A female St. Pauli fan described the situation on the blog “Millernton” like this: “The corridor to the toilet was henzlig. It was fierce against the partitions, in such a mad volume, that one thought that they were born soon. Additionally If light trays and Böller were thrown back on the current band, which also arrived directly in front of the ladies’ loo, so that we have gone up there first. The Böller did not stop first. We did not come out the whole half-time break. At some point the police came But then did not let us back in the block. Complete escalation. “
Since the game was played just 45 minutes.
Massive criticism of the police
After the game it was apparently even worse. The fans of the hamburgers were gathered behind the guest block, the gates closed to the outside, the trailers waited from FC St. Pauli in icy cold on the bus.
So the police Rostock wanted to prevent the meeting of the fanglers. But it hails criticism of the Pauli fans. As it means in the report on the blog “Millernton”, came back to the walls and Böller flew into the waiting amount of guest fans.
“I’ve been experiencing a lot, but to be exposed to such Böllers and can not really move, was really fiercely. The police simply did not open the gate despite these Böllerwürfen. Instead, water windows were used against both sides. And then, then, After a felt eternity, a very small gate was open at the end of the row. From there we came to a bigger place, on which one felt a bit safer and was not so tight anymore. “
The police Rostock justified the procedure against the fans so: “Through consistent intervention of the police, a direct meeting could be prevented. After the part of the game, the fishing groups tried again in the stadium. Repeatedly, the fan bearings shocked each other with pyrotechnics. Through strong police presence and The use of the water windanger larger riots could be prevented. “
The police belongs to preventing greater problems prevented. That should see the hamburgers differently. “So in the end, anger, incomprehension and questions: how could something like that happen?”
After this game, the police have rostock and the fans definitely work up a lot. Also, the question of why such risk game was scheduled for an evening. The only halfway good news: Stand now no fan has obviously hurt. But in these pictures and reports that was probably pure happiness.
