After the fight between fans and neighbors on the highway: Sergio Berni defended the actions of the Police and said that “the attitude of the people” should be “something complementary”

In the middle of the operation of the Police of the Province of Buenos Aires to guarantee that security during the match between Independiente and San Lorenzo, a group of fans of the Avellaneda club clashed with neighbors of Wilde that cut the highway Buenos Aires-La Plata to claim for the power outages. The balance of the violent episode was one person shot dead and at least two other injuries. About, Sergio Berni maintained that the Buenos Aires troops “repelled” the dispute, but that “the attitude of the people” should be “something complementary.”

In an attempt to explain the police protocol in a situation with a large number of overwhelmed fans, the Minister of Security of the Province wondered: “How many police do you have to have for a full River field? What do you do? Do you lead the Army or the Navy?

Although he clarified that “the Police act under a protocol”, which in this case was shared with the Police of the city of Buenos Aires up to the limits of the districts, in the Dock Sud area, he underlined: “The attitude of the people, the citizens, the general society regarding security is something complementary. If not, we live in a police state. There has to be education and criteria.”

Confrontation between barrabravas of Independiente and picketers

In addition, Berni explained that the conflict originated from the cut of the neighbors on the highway, who were not there minutes before when they passed the plan and the fans of San Lorenzo. Thus, he clarified that the confrontation was not linked to the soccer teams, but that it could have happened to any team.

On Saturday afternoon, when the Buenos Aires Police guarded the fans, since the Avellaneda club campus was a few kilometers further back, the caravan was forced to stop because of the picket line that cut off traffic. “The situation is stopped and reordered, while other police officers controlled the cut “, said the minister.

“Approximately 40 people got off each of the four buses. All this happened and the Police acted, repelled the confrontation and brought it to an end”Berni pointed out about the “intermittent” cut of the neighbors. And he reconstructed the facts: “The spirits are tempered, the fans begin to sing, those of Independiente come down and begin to hit people. A confrontation begins because the fans did not want to wait for the court.

Independent statement for the crime of the fan

After the violent confrontation, Independiente issued a statement in which it targeted Berni and the Provincial Police. “The negligence of the police forces and the people in charge of the security operation is inadmissible,” published by the Avellaneda club.

And he continued: “Those who had to guarantee the safety of the professional team and the fans in the transfer directed them to the place where they knew that a demonstration was taking place and the highway cut. For this reason, we demand the immediate resignation of all the officials in charge of the operation and we demand an urgent explanation from Minister Sergio Berni and his Chief of Staff, Carlos Montaña”.

Faced with these demands from the club chaired by Hugo Moyano, the Axel Kicillof official warned that “the instruments to make a formal claim are”, that the Independent maneuver is “In the public setting for the gallery. And I add: “If they think there is something wrong, they should make a formal presentation.”

Regarding Independiente’s decision to issue itself through social networks, Berni said: “The club is acting in a completely irresponsible and reckless way with a tweet. Justice has a moment to investigate that it is now because there is a dead person. If the club is so worried, it should say about the tweet in Justice, which will say if the police acted right or wrong.

“They couldn’t even hold the elections of their own club, they have had problems with the barrabravas. This is a board of directors that has an extended mandate because it expired last year”, said Berni, who accused them of “doing sports politics” to benefit themselves.
