    He was trying to stop a fight between a group of Depor supporters and one Compostela supporter (i.e. tried to help the kid from getting ass kicked) when one of the Depor fans kicked him hard in his side. The agressor apoligised after he realised he hurt another Depor fan.

    Later that Depor fan had trouble breathing, and was on his way to the hospital, but he died on the way.

    Sounds like some very bad luck to me.

    Two people have already been taken into custody following the wife of the murdered man (it has been established that the kick was what led to his death) identifying the people who were responsible.

    After this senseless death, there will most likely be graver penalties for violence in and around the football stadiums ---- LINK

    I don't know about the law in Spain, but the person who committed this crime ought to be charged with manslaughter. The irony that he was a depor fan trying to protect a young Compostela supporter is terrible.

    Maybe this news will serve notice to the fans of Sevilla-Betis for next weeks upcoming derby, probably the most violent rivalry of any in Spain.

    Well, hope those guys read the papers and realize it ain't worth it, but I'm betting they don't.

    Depor's ultras, los Riazor blues, have said on their site that they will disband after what happened yesterday.

    What can I say?

    Total senselessness. And to think I will be there next month.
