I guess its still an improvement for Iraqi Football
During victory celebrations following a match on Saturday between the Shiite villages of Sinjar and Enana, a fan accidentally shot the victorious goalie to death, the police in Babil Province said Monday, according to a report in The New York Times.
During the celebrations, an off-duty policeman started firing his pistol in the air but lost control of it, the police said, according to the Times. A bullet struck the Sinjar goalie, an 18-year-old high school senior named Mohammed Amin, in the head, killing him instantly, the paper reported.
There was no indication of foul play; the policeman was himself a Sinjar fan. Sinjar had won the game 2-1.
The officer, Jawad Kadham, 28, has been charged with recklessly discharging an official weapon and with negligent homicide, according to the report. He remains in custody.
Word of the incident comes two days after an Iraqi soccer player was shot dead by a fan just as he was about to kick what could have been the tying goal. It appears the two shootings occurred on the same day.
Here in Idaho there would have been an investigation finding the officer did nothing wrong, no charges filed. Tragic event, shame that sort of thing happens...especially with someone you'd expect to know how to handle their own weapon.
