Violence At Liga MX Match Sparks Concerns Over Jalisco Stadium, Demand For New Laws
Published March 27, 2014
MEXICO CITY WEIGHING NEW MEASURES: In Mexico City, Ricardo Magallán reported "the violence that occurred Saturday set off alarms in other Mexican states that have already begun to seek solutions to prevent these types of incidents." One example "is in Mexico City." At a legislative meeting scheduled for next Thursday, Mexico City Public Security Commission President Santiago Taboada will present an initiative to "propose harsher penalties for those fans that attack other fans or authority figures." Taboada said that "he is proposing that any fan who commits a violent act at a stadium in Mexico City face a minimum of six years in prison." Taboada: "I am proposing to increase all penalties. Almost all the penalties with respect to violence at public sporting events are just administrative, and my proposal is to have criminal sanctions" (LA AFICION, 3/25).
