Is Western Civilization bent on self-destruction? From the Zman at theburningplatform.com:
This week, police in Manchester England announced they have finally solved the most heinous crime in that city’s history. A man has been arrested for allegedly making racist gestures during the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Residents were told, however, to remain sheltered in place, as it had not yet been determined if the man arrested was the monster in question or if he had been acting alone.
Assuming he is the person responsible for being mean to a ball player, this arrest will put an end to one of the most terrifying periods in the city’s history. “Racism of any kind has no place in football or our society and I hope this arrest shows that we are taking this matter extremely seriously”, said Superintendent Chris Hill of the City of Manchester’s Major Crimes Division. The police have promised to work with both clubs to make sure players on both sides have been comforted.
