Colegiales’ hooligans cause incidents
Hundreds of Colegiales’ hooligans caused incidents in the streets of Munro and Vicente López during the funeral procession of their leader, Fernando “Loco Pocho” Morales, who was killed on Saturday.
Violence and tension were what the hundreds of Colegiales’ hooligans left in the streets on Wednesday during the funeral procession of their leader, Fernando “Loco Pocho” Morales, until the Olivos cemetery.
A photographer from the channel Somos Zona Norte had his camera destroyed by the barra bravas as they did not want pictures taken. Meanwhile, the stores from Munro and Vicente López, especially those which are on the Maipú avenue, closed to prevent damages and looting. However, some robberies could not be avoided.
“Loco Pocho” Morales was killed on Saturday in Munro and his assassination appears to have political undertones. He was a Kirchnerite militant, as the club’s President Rodrigo González. The hooligans also went to the City Hall building of Vicente López, led by Jorge Macri, to protest.
Morales was killed with six shots at the tenement house where he lived.
After the funeral in Munro, the procession went to Mitre, in Saavedra, where some Platense hooligans joined in, and all of them then went down Maipú Avenue.
