    Police man dies at Catania

    A policeman has died outside the Massimino stadium in Catania after riots following the 2-1 loss to Palermo. The Sicilian derby was marred by crowd violence, which saw play delayed in the second half after teargas was thrown on the pitch.

    The deceased policeman has been named as Filippo Raciti, aged 38.

    The ANSA and Apcom news agencies said the officer was killed after an explosive device was thrown at him.

    Catania's magistrate has already opened an inquiry about the events.

    The Italian Federation commissioner, Luca Pancalli, was immediately informed about the situation and has decided to suspend the weekend's Serie A programme.

    It is believed that hooliganism inside the stadium - which caused the match to be delayed twice - had spilled over into mass confrontation outside.

    Both of Palermo's goals were contentious - Andrea Caracciolo's opener looked offside while David Di Michele's winner was clearly a handball.

    Over a hundred people are reported to have been injured during the clashes.

    It is not known how the policeman died or whether the incident that led to his death involved the spectator violence.

    I just saw the incidents (thanks to Marcello's video) and I feel very sad to see what people make of football. I don't think that its football that makes people do this things, some people are just waiting for an excuse.

    The "Sport" again ashamed by the behaviour of some fans that don't seem to understand it or enjoy it. Football is spread through out the world and it should be an excuse for people to get together and feel closer, not as a mean to promote hate.

    On top of all this a human being died and another is fighting for his life at an hospital, sad, sad day.

    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?

    There were Ultras, cops, a local match and a couple of dubious goals...It was a boiling situation. In that area there is a local rivalry for ages. I'm sorry for the death of the police officer, but we don't know all the facts.

    I posted this in another thread, plus added some info:

    This religious festival of St. Agatha (I think) basically means that there's a big festival on the streets with lots of people. Add this to a possible riot, and things would've been even worse with all those people in the city. So they moved the game to Friday. Originally authorities wanted to move it to 15:00, but both presidents protested and so they moved it to 18:00 --> you all saw what happened...

    I heard the whole riot kicked off because police didn't allow Palermo fans to enter the stadium until the beginning of the 2nd half. They got so pissed that the moment they got in they started fighting, and the unorganized police force (actually police leaders also have a resposibility here IMO) was unable to prevent the escalation of the incidents.

    It seemed that the police was somewhat surprised at what happened which is quite shocking considering the fierce rivalry between these sides (the hatred is so strong, I think you can only compare it to Napoli vs Roma). They were talking about this match for weeks, and when it finally comes, the authorities are caught with their pants down... Sad

    Raciti murder "was revenge"
    Sunday 4 February, 2007
    The police are now suggesting that Filippo Raciti was targeted in a revenge killing for acting as a witness in the trial of a Catania Ultra’.
    The 38-year-old policeman was killed during riots that surrounded the Stadio Massimino while Catania-Palermo was played inside.

    An autopsy has now confirmed he died from massive liver damage. “The cause of death is clear,” announced the MD.

    It was already known that the Catania fans staged an ambush on the arriving Palermo fans and police force, but a frightening new theory has come to light – the football match was merely an excuse to exact revenge on the Chief Inspector.

    “In the last few weeks, Filippo had acted as a key witness in the trial of a Catania Ultra’ accused of violence in the last derby at Palermo. He was the one who nailed him, reconstructing the events of another nightmare evening,” explained police colleague Claudio Anzalone.

    “Filippo told me how things unfolded. That lad, who got a suspended sentence, left the court laughing at him and hurling insults. Now this incident could really mean something, even if nobody listened to our warnings before.”

    This theory would fit in with the sequence of events on Friday evening at the Stadio Massimino.

    The Palermo fans did not arrive until the second half and it was here that the trouble erupted, when Catania supporters waiting outside the stadium began their ambush.

    Raciti, one of the policemen escorting the visiting fans, was struck in the chest by a rock and then a homemade bomb was thrown at his car.

    “We can confirm that there was no involvement of the Rosanero fans,” said Catania police chief Ignazio Fonzo.

    “The riot was solely created by pseudo-Catania supporters, real delinquents with a premeditated action of extreme violence. It’s a little early to talk today about a premeditated and targeted murder, however.”

    More evidence suggests this may have been revenge for the last Sicilian derby, won 5-3 by Palermo at the Stadio Barbera on September 20.

    Raciti had been placed in a desk job for the past few months, but became restless and at his request was returned to duty at football matches just over a week ago.

    The tension expected in the derby may well have given the criminals the perfect excuse to commit murder disguised as football-related violence.

    Last night the police raided several different Catania fan clubs to weed out the more hardline elements. So far 22 people are under arrest.

    I think the time has come to lock ultras out of the stadium, they add less than what they take away from the sport.


    Yes they provide a great spectacle, but I dont want to watch them if someone has to die for it, the guilt would kill me.

    God bless Raciti's soul, a brave man who died a difficult death, just for speaking the truth and protecting lives.


    Everything a man should be. We miss you Cipe.

    What about the death of normal fans, from the hands of police? Should police be locked out?

    Dont mix up some things, death is death. If its a policemen or its a ultra its still a shame. But let the things clear up, obviosly everyone is shocked right now by the death of policemen. But soon we need to see what caused such a violence, because there was no direct confrontation of palermo and catania fans. Infact the news suggest that palermo fans were not allowed to stadium untill second half, which kicked of violence.

    Its just everyone blames ultras now, but believe me if ultra died there would be not much fuss in the media about it.

    Everyone has responsibility for the violence,just read what peruzzi wrote in www.goal.com

    Actually I am keen to bealive that the facking pussy who made the bomb has nothing to do with being ultra, he is just a small scale criminal who went to game for trouble. I mean its not ultras job to make bombs. We dont do this. I mean who the **** takes time to make bomb and bring it to stadium. Its not ultras.

    In the end all ultras dont deserve to be banned. Now I never been in sicilia, but I can say with my experience that curva nord milan is a relativle safe place and so are many other curvas in italy.

    Rip to policemen once again, who gave his life away protecting others. I hope they will find the facker that made the bomb and threw it.

    Cops make abuses all the time, in my country they have thrown teargas in an enclosed space, shot the fans with rubber bullets and organised an ambush at the end of the game in which they chased every fan(every woman, child, man was hit, even at the ground) and this mess happend in just one game !!! (Dinamo - Steaua Bucharest ) So if you ban ultras, you may as well ban the damn cops.
    The Ultra movement has brought organisation in the stadiums, things would have gone worse if it weren't for them.
    RIP for the cop, he had two kids and a wife.

    Cmon, what I get from your post is that the cops didnt have anything to do at the police headquarters so they started to shoot people with rubber bullets etc for fun or to do away with boredom?

    The non- violent Ultras are a spectacle, without them football wouldnt be 1% fun. But people who kill, regardless of being an ultra, are not human beings for me.

    Man, in today newspapers, I read about this something veery amusing...

    There were more then 20-30 people arrested... And since there was no fight between Catania and Palermo gans, only the police and Catania fans, it is believed that this was planned...

    Planned, in the means of attacking the police. There were also hand-made bombs, who would take bombs to a football game, if something isn't planned???

    This is getting veryyy amusing...

    Well, apparently it was a revenge action...

    In Italy I read that Raciti (the cop who died) was a witness in a trial against some Catania hooligan.

    And btw: apparently Raciti was hit by 2 bombs (one against his car and the other one near him) and then got beaten to death with a stone or something...
